That is bubinga (kevazinga) not a bad price compared to some burls. Cherry Crotch looks good too but its way expensive.

For some reason, zebrawood has been catching my eye lately... would make for a pretty M3, I think

Had a 3 day weekend, gotta love a boss who hates work as much as I do grin . I had some MDF left over so I decided to build a second sub and put 2 big ones in my living room and put the smaller ones in the bedroom. I wanted to rebuild my current sub so I built another just like it and will put the parts in the new one. Then I will rebuild the original , which I have new parts on the way for.

My Original sub,the drivers are not flush mounted, I am going to add mdf to the inside to double the thickness and flush mount the drivers.





New sub I built today. Tomorrow I will finish it and paint it.Pics to follow

So im not sure if anyone is interested but I have some down time waiting for primer to dry so here goes. Yesterday I got a late start. Cutting the 90s round over and filling and sanding took a lot longer than I remember. To top it off it wont stop raining here, more rain in the past 2 days than we usually get all summer. With the unrelenting rain , outdoor painting was out so I decided to make a spray booth with plastic and use a couple heaters to speed things along. Spraying all six sides at once is nasty, so I will spray the color coat on the bottom then stand the box on my bench for the rest. I bought the components from Creative Sound Solutions in Vancouver BC. It is tuned to 27hz using weights in the centers of the 2 passive radiators.

In the background of the woofer pics is the first plasma I bought 7 yrs ago for $1800 . On Friday my kid comes out to the shop and says it went pop and the picture disappeared. I have been waiting for it to happen, these LG sets were not very reliable. It has about 8000 hrs on it. Thanks to the internet , I found the culprit and parts are being procured.

If I do anymore of this sort of stuff I will definetly be investing in some cordless tools. With a shop vac, table saw,drill,sander, skill saw 2 routers , jig saw,fan ,bench grinder and an unruly air line things got pretty F'd up at times. I will also retract my recommendation of the skill router. Do not buy a router with a removable base , they just don't sit straight. I will be getting a fixed base router for more intricate work. Live and learn .

Anyone who cries about the price of a sub or speaker for that matter has never built one themselves. The wood, glue, paint materials, labour, electricity, electronics , shop equipment, it would be cheaper to buy one . Good thing this is something I like to do , though its time to find another distraction for a while.

Looks Beautiful, Sock!

I'm wondering how CSS's SDX-15 subwoofer is coming along...haven't heard much about it for ages.
