    I have a medium sized rectangular room. To the left of the screen is a door that would force me to position a ported sub so that it's facing the other sub on the opposite side of the screen, rather than having it front facing. In other words, have one sub front facing and the other facing...

    Hello, I am new to the forum and need some help with box design as I am not able to run winISD. I am planning on purchasing 2x Dayton Audio RSS315HF to go in the front of my HT room under my L/R speakers. I will use the sub box as a platform for them. I am restricted on size and location, but I...

    I'm looking around for a box size to fit my available space to house 18" ultimax subwoofers. The Martysub variants are just a little too big for most of my spots (especially if I want to do two of them). I did see an interesting shape in the stonehenge as it would potentially slide behind my...

    Hi all. Do any of you have experience with the DIYSG Aggressive 1299? The DIYSG website quotes a ported cabinet size for the aggressive 1299 of 14.75" W x 52" H x 14" D. I was wondering what size/ how many ports will be needed (planning on buying from precision port), and what tuning frequency...

    Hello all, People suggest that for classical music, I should choose a sealed subwoofer. I've read good review on REL, SVS and Rythmik. But being in China, those subwoofers are nearly 2 times more expensive comparing to their price in US or UK. So I come across this Yamaha NS-SW300 with good...

    Hey there - new to the forum but I've lurked for over a decade. Background: I bought a Mach 5 Audio MJ-18 almost ten years ago for an IB install in my wagon (seen at the bottom of this post) Now, I'm moving the MJ-18 into the house - my reliable Polk Audio PSW505 had it's amp crash. I have a...

    Hi folks, I've got 2 Mach5 UXL-18 here that I'm planning to put into ported boxes behind an AT screen. Since I don't know my way around WinISD all that well, I started off with a full marty and modified the dimensions so that it's 18" deep with the same exterior volume, kept the same port...

    Let me start out by saying I'm very new to the audio world and I am by no means an audiophile or connoisseur, just a college kid who likes music. I'm looking into building a subwoofer to compliment my stereo system, the sub of which is decent but not enough for my taste. I've narrowed my...

    Hey guys long time lurker, I was hoping I could get any opinions on a ported subwoofer I'm designing. This will be used heavily for music but also for movies and gaming. I decided that response down to 25hz was the goal so a tuning of 27-28 hz was chosen. Amplification will be a crown K2 so...

    This thread will detail the build of the two subs that are going behind my screen wall. This will be more of a discussion type thread than a how-to. I'm not going to show how to connect two panels together...it's not a tutorial. Driver is the Dayton Ultimax-18 aka UM-18. Material is 3/4" MDF...

    Can someone give me some input and advise concerning ported vs sealed subs? What are the advantages of each? What are the disadvantages of each? Is one better to use listing to music vs movies? Is front ported better than rear ported? How about two ports vs one? It appears sealed are more...

    Hey Guys! Longtime lurker and thanks to the wealth of information here, I'm able to start into my first build with a good deal of confidence that I'll come away with something awesome. My current system doesnt have any sub (not really counting the 10" onkyo HTIB sub I have) The plan currently...
  14. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hello! For a long time I've been interested in deep bass reproduction but prices of those subwoofer sytems had let me down. Now I'm considering a DIY project as it seems to be much more affordable way to approach my goals. Hours playing with WinISD narrowed my choice to max 12" driver in ported...

    So I have decided on getting a sub woofer from PSA but I am having a little trouble deciding between sealed or ported. I primarily watch movies and occasionally listen to music, movies is definitely the most important. The subs I am looking at are the S1500, the XS30se or the V1500. I have...
  17. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Over the past couple of months, I've been reading as much as I can on these forums and even started a couple of threads as I continue my search for a (pair of) subwoofer(s) for my large room. Aside from reading here, I've been reading several other sites. While I've learned a ton, I still feel...

    Hey everyone, I'm currently deciding between a ported and sealed sub (SVS PB1000 vs SVS SB1000 specifically since my budget is $500), and I know a lot of it depends on room size and other factors. The living room in which it will be is 14 x 12 x 9 feet (about 1500 cft). However, my living room...

    Has anyone played around with the idea of making a very small sub that can be carried around? I am trying to think of a way to make a portable iPod dock that gets loud and sounds good. SPL requirements would be 105db from 35-150hz with no more than 200 watts input power. I am thinking 1.5...
