A month or so ago, I got this home theater sub from a friend, and it was in good shape, so I decided to replace my current sub (was very outdated and old and was beginning to fall apart) so I could get a little better response.
I built a small sealed enclosure, and this worried me because the original enclosure was ported, and I also had no T/S specs to go by. But I decided to try it anyway.
This thing sounds great!!! It may only be a 6.5" sub, but it does very well at reproducing the lower octaves without having to strain. I ended up using some scrap 3/4" 13 ply birch I had laying around, and just a jigsaw and palm sander.
Not much to do, since it was gonna just be a small cube, so all I needed was grill (thanks Mr. @Bettr n' Revrse and I added some paint and here is the end result:
As you can see, it's not a very big sub
I built just a small, sealed enclosure:
I painted it black, and @Better N Reverse ; sent me a grill and this is the end product:
I think it turned out very good!! I always thought that I would need a larger sub to keep up with my other home theater components, but this little thing has surprised me. I encourage everyone to try to make their own components and try new things, instead of buying a box from Walmart that has a whole home theater in it, lol.
Thanks for looking!!
