its really just personal preference in terms of what feet you choose. .....

here's a good start though,

you could also just take some wood and cut it down to size, and stain it, if your looking for a low cost way to do it.

For my temporary feet, I just cut a few 1" high 2x2 blocks, and put those anti-floor-scrap round fuzzy dots on one side. I also have mine on a hard wood floor, and this worked really well for sliding the subs into place.

Here is a sealed down firing build for a uxl18. Same size as micro-cube. Just need to put duratex on it. For a guy in Ottawa.


One more to make and then a martycube that will be similar, downfiring.

Those curves don't appear to have that large of openings, that's not going to cause any issues is it?

No I get that, but I was thinking more along the lines of the openings being so small that it almost creates port noise pushing all of that air through four small openings.

Donny, with the skill you've got, duratex will be ridiculously easy for you.

Just do a few test pieces first so u can check the texture and go heavier or smoother, depending on preference.

My teak minimarty enclosure is still up for sale

Fully done, just needs a driver. Price is 200 plus shipping. Local pickup can have it for 250. That's a great deal. Wood costs are 200 bucks with that veneer.

Good accessory? or snake oil?

In between, don't think they will isolate much but they are nice looking and aren't crazy expensive.

What weight are they they rated for? If they can take 50 lbs each, I would be interested.

Huge News Guys,
I went to a store in my town and noticed this shipping store next door. Went in to check it out and an old student of mine was running it. Told him what i was up to with my subs and he can help. He will give me a flat rate to ship anywhere in the USA. I will be paying in Canadian money (not us from sumas) and only have to drive 10 minutes from my house to drop off. That means I can offer lower prices to you the customer, especially those on the east coast. If I have given you a quote in the last month , the prices are now lower for those far away from me.

I will post this in post one but the prices for flatpacks will be to the usa :

1) minimarty will be $289 us
2) Martycube will be $249 us
3) Microcube will be $219us

These are total prices shipped to you. I hope this makes the marty experience open for many more people, especially those in New York, Boston, Florida, etc.

Nope, wanted it to look like speaker floating. I cross my center at 90 so not a tonne of bass going to it.
