Nice pics and nice work. I enjoy..
excited to hear how you like it..
this may sound wierd but if you sanded the black lettering off and added a urathane to the outside, that particle board would be rather pleasent

I should have pics of it installed and a short review tomorrow.  It may get carpet if I am gonna keep it.  I don't wanna do it again Angry  It is complex to build.  Thanks for all the comments.  ;D

Well I didn't have time to post pics, however it is done.   Cheesy

I did some tuning, seems the insert closer to the top the tuning is way high.  Then I moved it down some, got better, I boved it till the port was obsured by the insert 3 or so inches.  Not to my liking.  I moved it back to where the port is open and a little more.   ???

Listening the kick is very punchy, bottom end is fat.  However there is one hell of a peak around I guess 75hz roughly.  And then drops off significantly after 90 or so.  I have alot of tuning to do ause it sounds strange to say the least.

Also when I crank it the box seems to top out and not get any louder at a certain point.  Strange.....

sweet.  think you'll end up keeping it instead of building another out of mdf?  If so, what will you finish it in?  Looks like it was a pretty solid build.  congrats.

As of now I don't have plans of rebuilding it, I am getting used to the sound of it.  Cake sounds good on it, and some other stuff.  It seems to be growing on me though.

Beano,


  Do you have enough space between the drivers, I.E are the surrounds touching each other...They don't need much of a gap, but they must have a gap.

amp looks kinda puny for 2 x 12s? how many wrms it showing those subs? i bet the running out of steam is due to the small amp not the box desighn.

As far as the surrounds toughing, I put 1/4" weather stripping around them and mashed it down.  I also made sure they are out of phase before sealing it up.

I think the amp is more than sufficent.  I ran the VRs with it in a sealed box before.  Here is the link for Harrison Labs  http://www.hlabs.com/  

It is the AE 800.2     class d 800rms @2 ohms.

I have had the Harrison for 4 years now and never had a problem.  Great amp.

800 wrms should be good, except clamshelling like you have done does require more power than normal and will be less loud than 2 seperate subs but more accurate. maybe try just 1 sub and see what its like?

I talked with another guy who built one and seems like the kickers need more air space.  I'm not gonna give up on the 2 of them yet.  Gonna try some polyfill in the sealed portion and do some more tuning this weekend.  Report to follow.

Well I have been listening and testing.. ???  Not sure the deathbox is right for me.  It is loud, perhaps too loud for what I want.  I hear more rattles than music I think. Cry  A single 15 in a sealed or ported box might work out better.  Thanks for everyones help.
