Default 1/2 of Mark's Baker's Dozen

I wasn't going to post any info on this project until it was completed, but folks over at another forum were bored, so I gave them a quick peek.

This (for me) will be the end-all, beat-all of sub projects I've ever done. Will it be the last? Dunno...

My design goals for this project are simple:
- It must sweep tons of air
- It must NOT weigh a ton
- It must surprise those who see/listen to it
- It must be priced low enough for others to replicate or modify it

I will be posting more info on the Mach 5 Testbed website for those of you who are mildly curious on the methodologies of this build.

The image was too large to post here so I posted a link to my site:

Best,
Mark

Hi Josh,

The design actually uses the MAW-12's. Overall height will be ~7'4". I'm dredging the details now and will be posting more info on the 'Testbed' section of the Mach 5 site.

Best,
Mark

I am actually contemplating using your MAW12 drivers, 4 of them. However, to give me the deep bass results I am looking for, I will need 2, 10ft^3 (internal)vented, tuned to 15hz supplying 250w per sub. Considering shipping costs, I will probably go another route with an Elemental Design 19 Ov.2 in a 13ft^3 vented tuned to 17hz and a Behringer ep2500.

Keep me posted on this design you're doing. How much volume is each speaker getting? Wired in parallel, you would have 2, 2.66ohm loads. Perfect for the EP2500!

So here's a shot of the (99%) finished unit. I placed myself there so you can get an idea of its girth. The other one is complete as well and laying on the floor waiting for some paint to dry.

Now comes the struggle of finding a place for them in our modest home. I'm glad I have an understanding CEO.

WOW!
What is the height?

How much longer until you try them out?
What amplifier are you going to use?

The overall height is about 7'4". Its front heavy (naturally) but quite stable with the 3" feet I used. It would take a fair bit to knock them over.

I'm going to be driving them with a Crest CC2800 amp. I've wired them in a way that I can flip between 6 Ohms and 2 Ohms if I wish.

I'll be posting full info on the design at the Mach 5 Testbed site in the coming days.

Best,
Mark
