Title: the monster wicked one!!!!!!!
Post by badbyrdkoncepts on 01/20/08 at 15:38:14

ok i am almost done building my modded wicked one. the end size was 34.5x26x45.5. i just could not squeeze out the full 36 and get it too work for me. so i layed it out as a 36x26 and then just shaved off 3/4" on each side of the 36". adjusted the throat alittle bit.







i still need to add the braces, do some finish sanding, install the woofers 8 10" visoniks, and wire it up. i still got to figure out how im going to get the 200lbs monster in my truck. hoist???? LOL  ;D i'll get it all done and installed tomorrow, should be able to get finish pics up tomorrow night or tuesday, and let you all know how it will sound.

must be something to do with your settings. maybe right click on where the image should be and see if "view image" works for you

so each bank of 4 woofers are going to share the same air space in the sealed side?

ok so i got it mostly finished and installed, and OMG this box is amazing. right now i havent even tuned my amps or crossover yet and this thing is unbelievable. i would be willing to put money on high 140's right now. this box is amazing in sound quality also it handled every thing i threw at it, listen to some of everything no problems, no major drop off or peaks that i have found yet. and the vibration on my poor truck is unreal. the really funny thing is the woofers in it are $20 each from big lots, and they are getting 50 watts each. this is mind blowing.
i had to end up taking the baffle out to mount the woofers.
you can see how cheap these woofers are


the finished shot in the truck not much to see, i dusted it a little with some black spray just so it didnt stick out so bad looking threw my front windshield

i would have to say with this box and the right woofers, and big power it would be just psycho!!!!!!!

Post by musgofasa on 01/22/08 at 17:44:24

Looks pretty psycho as is!

Good job. I can't wait to hear what it does on a meter even with those subs.

Do you have plans to replace the subs and get some serious power going in there or are you happy with what you have?

Take care,
Robert

If you plan on putting high power subs in it, maybe you can brace the inside a bit, since its a long box (or high, depending how you look at it)
I would use broomsticks and glue them inside, from one panel to the opposite panel, where you would normally have put the extra wood if you would not have let the woofer share the same air.
hmm, English sentence not good here. :(
Let me know if I should rephrase that. :-/

Cool!

I'd like to see some numbers if you ever get a chance to measure its performance.

High rigidity plywood, some extra bracing and pro audio drivers comes to my mind, but then it always does.

    It is amazing what a person's imagination can dream up. I have always want to modifiy the WO but have been so pleased with its performance have seen no need to try. I commend you on your imagination and your build. It has inspried me to build my own but not the size of the beast you are wrestling. It is 36 X 32 with four Dayton HOs. It stands about 27" tall and is every-loving punishment sitting behind the "Captain's Chair" for my HT. With only limited BURN-IN (10 hrs) the WO410 hits hard and fast with peaks at 40/50Hz with 31/63Hz rolling evenly on both sides. I have been running different test but right now its putting out about 103db 1w/1M using subwoofer sweeps. I figrure all these numbers will change after 80hrs of BURN IN. I was curious to know if you had any numbers or test info to pass along about your MONSTER. I would really like to know the results from the car audio side instead of just HT (I meant to say truck audio side). Again, I will haft to say that is an impressive build.

wow, im not a fan of modding steves designs but momma thats a cool box.  if and when you take it out again, try facing the open side towards the rear, all my subwoofers sound better when facing away from me.

Any updates on this insanity?

There is a part of me that wants to see a slightly different execution of this idea turned into a Wicked One Helluva pro audio bottom end enclosure.
