emaccomputer: Hey Richard...thanks for the video. Cheers from California. Back in the day; 1960's to the 1980's; Vox, Fender, Kustom, WEM used to make column type speakers; which contained (4) 10 inch speakers for their P.A. amps. Would you have any plans on how to build and wire a replica of the old Vox Column Speakers, Model LS40? The dimensions were about 48" tall, 15" wide and 11"deep. I have a classic rock band and would like to add these speakers to our equipment. Thank you, Daniel.
C Trey: hey i already have a box built up just like this alls it need is one more side to complete the whole box i actually have two of them and was wondering could i put two tens in this box if possible, i need help anyways im a roockie and then at the same time i like making crap i have stuff around the house to make crap i have a drill n jigsaw scrap wood i dnt have any speakers i need the whole nine yards really
William Johnson: Good i like
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
TRIPLESEVENSIX: Nice job man!
waldo alex ramos benavente: i did something similar and it sound well god job greetings from chile land of earthquakes
BILLY B.: that box is a BEHEMOTH. kinda big for 6x9s, but good job
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.
Maximus GZ: COOL! this really helped me THAANNKS!
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....
TuffThong: hahahahahahahaha, im so glad ive got a jigsaw, unlucky mate
Kanwar Puneet Singh Malhi: which speakers did you use?
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.
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 =)
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?
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: 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 response too.
