Ok, someone posted a link to a Sub Driver, the Exodus Maelstrom 21" in a thread here recently. While I'm not actually interested in such a large sub, it got me thinking about DIY subs and building different enclosures.

This is a call for any good links you guys may have for DIY Subs. Parts, enclosures, designes, articles, whatever.

Thanks in advance

I built a Vance Dickerson Titanic 12" sub from partsexpress.com. Nice sub.

Side note: I can't find the link that the person posted about that 21" Exodus Maelstrom. If whoever that was, could post it again here I would appreciate it.

Thanks again

Loc: It's all about the location.
Probably FredK mentioned it(Maelstrom) if I recall.

As far as sub kits go, you can find diy's on ED's site, as well as some projects on Creative Sound, Parts Express, Solen Audio, Madisound, Meniscus Audio, Speaker City ect ect ect.

I always liked the idea behind the Rythmik Audio subs.

Check out DIY forums at PartsExpress (TechTalk), HTGuide, DIYAudio, maybe even AVS if you can stomach it.

Here is the link to the Exodus Audio sub driver page.

Hometheatershack has an excellent set of forums for subwoofer design and build including a link to WinISD, a driver modeling program that you can use to model various subwoofer drivers and enclosures.

Creative Sound Solutions is another good sub driver vendor. I see they have the SDX 10 on sale at the moment. Thats an excellent driver for smaller enclosures.

Although I have played with WINisd a fair bit, I have not yet built a DIY sub. In picking up the EP350, I made the 'mistake' of buying a very good sub the first time around that gets me 95% of the way to music Nirvana and 80% of the way to HT Nirvana. I have a hard time justifying another $700-1K it would take to best the EP350.

That said, the Malx-21 with a 1500w pro amplifier (and a VERY big cabinet) would get you more sub than almost any commercial sub out there.

Anyone got a spare 700 clams so I can test out my hypothesis?

No, but I might be able to pick a few fleas off of my cat, if that would help a little.
