Thanks for the testimony. No need to persuade me tho cause I'm already sold on two Mini Martys just getting the funds in order lol. I'm ordering the flat packs first then subs and amp(s) later after I save more. Can't fn wait to put these together damn!

I can't seem to find any pics of the enclosures. Is there another link or thread for pic's? I haven't had the chance to go through the entire thread.

I just ordered 2 SI HT18 and will need two boxes. Sealed enclosure preferred due to room size 10x13x7.

Any info or help would be appreciated. Thanks B.

Bump for Donny. He is showing such great patience answering my questions.
If only I could decide what I want :-).
Martycube seems to be the answer due to size for me.

Thanks Donny.

Here are some pics of the 12v trigger mod I did to my inuke6000 that powers my two minimarty subs.
I used an Omron G7l -2a-tubj-cb-dc12 relay and a acjm-mv35-2s 3.5mm connector.
It nice not having to manually turn it off and on anymore. Also you can still use the front switch to turn it off if you had to, but you can only turn it on with a 12v input.
If you have any questions on how to do it let me know.

I have a few questions about the Minimarty flat pack.

Does it come with cutouts already for 18 inch drivers? Also, does it ship with any bracing?

I have room for one minimarty and one full Marty, would that be advisable, or should i just get 2 minimarty's?

Thanks
Ray

Ray it comes with all of the wood you'd need, you'd just have to let Donny know which driver you intended to use some he could router the proper sized recess. All you need on your end is a driver and an amp. If you're going mini Marty I highly recommend the UXL-18, man that driver works awesome in pretty much ever sub configuration.

Looks like the UXL is out of stock right now but not in a real hurry. Is there any similar driver (that isn't twice the price)?

Will you ever offer the Johnnysub as a flatpack? The minimarty is probably too tall and would look out of place next to my couch.

It already is. I can make any size flatpack ported or sealed. Flatpack or assembled. Only thing that changes is price. Pm me if you want a quote.

My honest opinion, The UXL is a proven performer so if you're not in a hurry I would strongly suggest buying it and just waiting for it to arrive. It's $550 shipped and that's Canadian currency so it would only cost you around $500 shipped with the current exchange rate. That's pretty awesome value IMO.

Best price is on ebay that I've found. Can get a big sheet folded up for 40$. If you can get it shipped close to border shipping cheap. Even shipped to Canada it's cheaper then local. I'm just a small cog in the giant wheel here

Just to make sure, I need a 4X8 sheet for the one sub? or the sheet is enough for the two subs? Also what advantages is there between the 1-1/2" compared to the 2-1/2" egg crate style acoustic foam?

Will do both.
1.5" is fine. 2.5 and your just losing inside cuft.

Chalugadp : I am not sure I understand the term loosing inside cuft? sorry I researched but did not find...I asked because the 1.5" acoustic foam is half the price of the 2.5". Saving money is one thing, but not at the cost of loosing quality bass, thanks again : )

The thicker foam shouldn't make a difference and using it will take up space (not a lot) of possible internal cuft. Yours might go from 5 cuft to 4.9.

Chalugadp : hi, on the martycube cut-list, what is the plywood thickness used ? If I am not mistaken thickness can affect final assembly...I am wanting to use quality plywood with veneer finish to stain and varnish after. The cuts will be made at a local shop and I want to be sure and precise on the measurements : ) , thank you for your input as usual...

Generally plywood and mdf come in 11/16" size that is labeled 3/4". That is in Canada where I am. with that thickness the back piece gets adjusted to 22 9/16" and the baffle to 19 13/16". If you make a mistake cut the back and baffle smaller instead of bigger. You can always flush trim if it's cut smaller.
