Can someone build me an enclosure?

Would someone be able to offer me their enclosure building services for an enclosure about the size of the Rythmik FV25HP, for two 15" drivers, about 12 cubic feet, tuned to 14-16hz, slot ported, fully cross braced, and finished with duratex?

I do not have wood working skills, nor the tools or space to do it myself. I'm open to offers from anyone with the ability to build this. 🙂

Stating where you're located would probably help.

Washington State, and I'm willing to pay for shipping or have it sent as a flat pack that I assemble.

Doesn't appear to be any in my state, though I did email the one in California, which would be the closest to me.

Yes, I know. Figured they can ship a flat pack since you said you would be ok with that.

Have you tried a cabinet maker in your area? Pull some build specs from one of the threads here , a few pictures and see if they will take it on .

I've been looking for build specs for what I want, but I'm having trouble finding them. 😕

Shipping is so high on those things that you could for sure get them cut out locally for less. You can assembly then with some screws and glue and several clamps. After they are cut out there is still a fair amount of labor to be performed, meaning it might still be a fair Chunk to have someone finished them out. It took me about a week if 8-10 hour days to build (4) 18" slot ported subs. That's a lot of labor... But if you do it yourself, that's free, right?

Not at all interested in doing it on my own, I'd rather pay the shipping.

It looks like the FV25HP is about 9 cft. What drivers are you planning on using? Does the enclosure need to have two drivers or could you go with two enclosures such as a Mini or Full Marty? How much are you wanting to spend? I am in Seattle, where are you specifically?

My quick Winisd model of a 12 cft cab with two UM15's tuned to 16 hz looks like it will do about 114 db at 20 hz and 110 at 16 with no PEQ boost and a high pass at 16 hz needing 1200 watts. As another option, the same size cabinet with two RSS390 HO's will be down a few db at 20 hz but pretty close at 16 hz with a flatter frequency response at only 600 watts. No PEQ and same high pass. Excursion and port velocities are in check on both.

The UM in the Winisd picture is green, RSSHO's in red.

You mentioned flat pack... Cutting out the pieces is the easy part, and any cabinet shop can do it for less than the shipping. I really can't see the advantage to a flat pack for a sub -- that was the point. And if it's already assembled the shipping will be even more significant, so both the labor and the shipping are high. Not sure who is doing final assembly in any case. Best bet might still be a local cabinet shop...

It's actually closer to 11 cubic feet, as shown on data-bass.com

Edit: I see the external volume is 11.6 cubic feet on the FV25HP, so I was wrong on the internal volume.

Also, I messaged you.

I was quoting ~internal volume but didn't specify.

I would consider sending an email to John and Kevin over at GSGAD. Their flat pack selection is expanding and they currently have one finished solution, I can't imagine it will remain at one for long

You could go to a local car stereo shop and have them build it for you.
