    Default my custom sub

    my custom sub

    it is aprox 2ft x 3ft x 2ft
    it has acoustic wadding all the way around top and bottem and some thick pices of foam in it on the bottem and back .

    thw woofer is a dbaudio raptor 12
    550wrms

    the test tone results wont be 100% right as the meter thing was calibrated at 1khz
    (the duller picture is a pic of the woofer moving)

    i am going to sand it down and spray paint it as i am not too sure at the finsh.

    it looks worse on the pics

    it sounds good i dont think i will ad a port as it may sound boomy ? its a simple sealed enclosure made of chipboard.

    at the minute i have a crappy amp powering it that gives a total of around 100wrms i am hoping to get a amp of ebay tomorow thats 2x 100wrms.

    i got the amp of ebay but unfortuanetly it doesnt work.

    we opend it for a look and the first bank of transistors has blown along with some risistors and a diode. my dad can fix it if we can get all the parts . we havent taken it apart for a good look but i thought i would ask on here if aneyoue knows where Mutant get their components from (especialy the class A/B transistors)??

    the amp is a mutant nw 2100 xp AB class operation amp.

    looks like a good build. that is for the home right? (I hope so)
    I'm thinking a grill for the front would finish it off well. Unless you dig the blue :D

    Take the screws out, get a counter sink - counter sink the holes, put the screws back in there - then buy/make you some pegs, then saw them off or sand them down - I saw mine off, then I sand them down to cut down on the amount of sanding...

    This will allow you to hide the screws if you dont want to put a grill on there...
