I have been working on some new subs to use in my new house. We should start moving in by the end of January so I wanted to get some projects done.
This project consists of a pair of dual opposed sealed cabinets. Each enclosure is a 22 inch cube and houses a pair of 15 inch sub drivers. The enclosures are 3/4 mdf and I added 3/4 oak to the front and rear for a total of 1 1/2 inch thick baffles for the sub drivers. The top and sides will be wrapped in mahogany veneer and the oak on the front and rear will be stained for contrast.
I dont plan to stuff the enclosures and mount the drivers until they are in the new house.
Those are looking mighty nice!! are you going to be using AE 15's in there? what are you going to power them with? how are you gonna finish them? are you gonna be wearing shoes to bed instead of the usual flippers? How much wood can a woodchuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

Hey N8 , One cab will have my pair of Av15's and the other cabinet will have a pair of NOS MFW15 drivers made by Eminence for the time being. Power will be a bridged Face F1200TS for the AV15 box , they will be wired for 8 ohms and the other cabinet will be powered by a bridged crown XLS. I am leaning towards a tung oil finish followed by shellac after I get the mahogany veneer on. Yes , I am wearing shoes this time , you have a good memory.
And finally , a wood chuck can chuck a truck load of wood untill the land owner shoots him. lol
Sounds good man. I bet they will sound great! It looks like the workmanship on those cabs is great! That face amp is a real beauty. I got to play with one for a while when I was staying at a friends place in Boston this summer (hooked up at a mal-x) and it really peaked my interest. I've never had a crown of any kind though.

I just ran the sims again for these. The AV15 dual opposed box will give me dolby reference (105 db) down to just over 13 hz and around 112 db at 20 hz with no eq. Not bad for a sealed box and in room should be better. I will finally use my dcx2496 with this build to emulate an LT circuit . I also have a calibrated mic to measure with too after it is all set up.
