    RL-s 15 Cab Design

    This by far is will the biggest cabinet I have ever designed and to be built.

    The customer is using a RL-s 15 for Home Audio. The cabinet is 29" w x 29" h x 38" d and the entire beast is 1" MDF - Triple Baffled w/ the subwoofer recessed and braced like a solid brick ***** house. The back of the cabinet is within the interior of the cabinet with a 6" space to the exterior back for mounting an plate amp. The space isolates the plate amp for the enclosure interior.

    The customer requested the bracing to be pure overkill to deaden the enclosure.

    A custom grill cover will be done that slips within the recess cutout which the front part of the grill cover will protrude beyond the front baffle. The grill cover will be held in place with rare earth magnets flush mounted into the grill cover flange and front baffle.

    And to complete it the exterior with be done with Mahogany Quarter Sawn Veneer.

    More than what most people on this forum are willing to pay for it.

    I'm not going to post what the customer paid, that's between me and him and if I did post the cost others would just pipe up and say they can build it for cheaper.

    Looks pretty solid, but I think the bracing can be improved.

    Yeah, it could be improved and tidy up a bit, but for the design from a fabrication standpoint I don't have to go putting in a whole bunch bracing elements that I have to concern myself with how the assemble it.

    I build the bracing cage and build the enclosure around that, simple and effective.

    One of the reviews on SMD said it will hit so hard, that you will go back in time because the extreme sound pressure rips a hole in the space time continuum. The low notes will hit harder so those will send you farther back in time than the higher notes.

    Ported? What's it tuned to? I am assuming really low, if it's vented.
