Roger McNeil: so I see you used what we call plywood which is a couple of layers glued
together but from reading...would it not sound better using mdf, because
then there would be no voids in the wood
scooteroreo1: Nice car audio without the car!
thepepeaudio: you can agree 2 ports of 2.5" x 4" (tube p.v.c.) per box
BILLY B.: that box is a BEHEMOTH. kinda big for 6x9s, but good job
waldo alex ramos benavente: i did something similar and it sound well god job greetings from chile land
Maximus GZ: COOL! this really helped me THAANNKS!
TRIPLESEVENSIX: Nice job man!
moofushu: These remind me of some speakers I saw a carpenter make out of scrap wood.
He used two 6x9's and an L-port cabinet for the speakers and they sounded
amazing, but looked terrible because he used plywood from a roof job he
finished. Nice job.
Chris Shippam: I like using wood for speaker cabinets....even pine boards...with lots of
1x2's for stiffening and bracing...kind of like ship frames....
Kanwar Puneet Singh Malhi: which speakers did you use?
TuffThong: hahahahahahahaha, im so glad ive got a jigsaw, unlucky mate
napsacing: Hi there! Maybe you can help me a bit. I've got two 12in Rockford P3s
upright in a ported box connected to a 1100W Memphis amp mounted to the
side. Next to the Memphis is a 4 channel Bolt that I plan on hooking up to
four independent 6x9s. Both amps are powered by a couple of ghetto rigged
CPUs. I plug my audio source directly through the Memphis' RCA input, then
into the bolt via it's output. The only step I have left is putting my 6x9s
in some boxes. I've read everywhere to make sealed boxes,
richardfld: In response to a couple of messages I've recieved regarding the design of
these : Yes, they are my own design. I worked them out entirely by my own
although used an 8 inch cone as a guide to work out the volume, I then
tweaked it accordingly to suit a 6x9 cone based on previous experience with
building 6x9 boxes. As for frequency, these will hit 21hz ported, around
30hz unported although the spl at a given frequency between 21-80hz will be
much louder ported. More tweaks to design may follow.
Glen Fawcett: I'm going to be making about the same thing but having 3 6x9 plus 4 small
tower speakers in each, its going to be nice when I get done.
Ed O: They should sound good just need to paint the box or rap in fabric
richardfld: I did try experimenting with different diameter and length of ports but
personally I much prefer them as a sealed box, with a port no matter the
configuration it just seems to loose the clarity which is amazing and is
the thing I love with these cabs/speakers. They still do produce a more
than adequate amount of bass though for me.
richardfld: They sound bloody brilliant! I'm using some really, really nice infinity
6x9's but you could just as easily put a couple of nice 6" drivers in and a
tweeter (with a xover, of course). I lucked out on the dimensions really :)
The sound I am getting is so accurate and pure and pretty good bass
Daniel Jeppsson: Have you no flex pipe? what I know from personal experience that the sound
will be better if you make a hole for a flex pipe =) btw good build =)
barry soetoro: what are the dimensions of the boxes thanks
richardfld: I'm not a speaker expert, but if you're building a cab you can't mix and
match the speakers you put in it unless you compartmentalise the box which
is a bit of a waste as you then loose the volume you need for the other
speakers. If you put more than one different speaker in a cab the different
frequencies and waves and such mix together and don't produce as good a
sound as if you kept the box separate for just one type of speaker.
richardfld: Although, having said that, It might not be horrendous or anything, just
that it won't sound 'as' good.
napsacing: but I plan on setting the HPF to about 125hz, so I'm not sure a sealed
setup would be preferable. Would it make more sense to leave the back of
the box open, because 6x9s are open air speakers, no?
