Default sub box designs

[QUOTE=kctess5;2915555]In the full range and multiway forums there are threads dedicated to pictures and stickied to the top but not this one. With the variety of different subwoofer design options it seems like a pictures thread could be interesting. I for one would love to see everyone's subs in one place

Maybe the mods could chime in on this one

I too am interested in the different designs for subs but less about the pictures. I am interested in hearing about the differences between the different box designs: specifically the advantages and disadvantages of loading a sub into a box. There seems to be many variations on a theme. Can anyone help?

You'll probably get as better response if you start a thread to ask that question, it's off topic for this thread.

Default fabulous!

The craftsmanship and design are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them with us. I am interested in how you chose this design, what considerations you made and how (if at all) this design met up with your expectations.

Nice, but I prefer when the driver is directed towards me, even with a 20-80Hz channel.

Looks good

Would turning it 90degrees to the right (pointing the mouth at the wall) lower the tuning at all?

Is a shame you have to hide it away, either way!

Dayton 12" Reference HF driver + a repurposed mini-safe. I got the safe for free and discovered it was the perfect internal volume for my driver (which I also got at a reduced price). Ripped the door off with some elbow grease and a crowbar. The Dremel tool attempt turned out to be futile. It sounds really great! The enclosure is totally dead due to the ~2" thick walls. Has anyone else seen a subwoofer made out of a safe? I searched but came up empty.

Great refurbish build. I like it, plus if you ever move it and drop it on accident, at least you know the enclosure will be safe.
