Yeah, I'm stoked (as the australians say).

I have built some cabs for it's little brother the 5.25" version, so two of these 6.5"s per side should be a massive step up! I should have an update later this week maybe next!

I had thought about veneer but it will be a first for me, I'd better get youtubing for some education!

Yeah, a white wash would be very nice as well. Oh the options!

I'd better make sure it works properly before I count my chickens tho!

Gloss white is nice but not the best to do over MDF unless you seal it good by rolling on a couple coats of good quality two part glass resin. Choices are endless. That box deserves something nice over it.

My port velocity of 12.5ms so I am hoping I won't need to do too much work on that. I have sanded down the inside port so it is flared and might round over the inside corner of the port and if I need to I was thinking about adding this kind of arrangement on the front.Click the image to open in full size.

Also it will couple better to the surrounding air.

To continue the colloquialisms, are you expecting be "chuffed" with the performance of the 2 x 6.5" subs?

Quick update, all loaded in and cabled up with Van Damme 2.5mm studio grade.

Sounds great on first listen but is a little lacking in punchiness. I wonder if I'll work out why when I measure it in REW.

Crossover set to 120hz.

Maybe a second unit will even things out?

If that's where you're locating it, it could be because of cancellation in the upper bass range because of the out of phase reflection off that wall in the back. Mount it up against the wall, rather than out in front like that.

Thanks Brian, once the Christmas tree is down (I know its a bit late) I can start with the subwoofer crawl etc.

After input from others I took the port down by 10cm, I noticed a difference immediately but I have not measured. Still, it's a prototype before I build a pair.

I am also very interested in your boom-unit project that I think might make a suitable cab for one of these. I need to learn hornresp first as it's a little mystifying to me atm!
