Default Seas L26ROY subwoofer FINISHED PICS

I made a sub using Seas l26 roy driver + hypex ds2.0 amp to extend the bass of Genelec 8030's. Here's a link to full worklog + couple of images.

Thanks for your interest! -Antti Hakala "drakmin"

Looks great! Nice project.

The Genelecs are ported so are you just using thier natural roll off (should be 24db/octave) without any additional electronic high pass?

It looks very good! Nice job!
I also used leather finish in my project.

The acrylic finish is an idea that I might use in a future project.

Another way to avoid the painting which I don't like to do

Thanks!

I'm using the built in 85hz roll off switch and made a similar setting to Hypex crossover.

Genelecs and this subwoofer are connected directly to my external firewire soundcard. So this is pc sound system, not connected to av amplifier etc.

First I tried using Genelecs full range and Hypex crossover around 50hz but sub didn't integrate good enough.

Very nice work, but in the interest of cosmetics you covered the plate amp's only cooling surface with a perspex insulator. Those amps don't get very hot being efficient Class-D, but nonetheless the manufacturer does use the aluminium plate as a the sole radiator for the output transistors.
