    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    I've just added it up and it cost me £630. Which sounds like a lot, but a half decent 15" home cinema sub is £1500. The time required to build it wasn't all that long, but there was a lot of waiting between doing things, especially the veneer faces. I would more compare it to something like the...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    No need thankfully. Most of the issue with the rattling and vibrating was simply that there were no other frequencies to cover it. I don't think positioning was helping during testing either. It was aimed at the "scoop wall" so was turning the room into a giant horn. The big issue with trying to...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    So even though I was practically dead after 3 hours sleep I pushed on. Set it up last night. After about 5 minutes you feel the sudden urge to release your bowels. Placement was everything, it's barely even moving and you can feel every note lol.

    Cheers Lewis. Good to see you dude. I missed a pic. I kinda wish now I had used matt clear. Along the edges it makes it look like it's white when the sun is on it. That said it is almost time for the blackout blinds, so I am sure that its slight sprakly will bother me less then.

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    OK I have figured it out. 90% of it is coming from here. Nothing I can do lol. Bass, I love you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkgtRps2vMY&ab_channel=Zomb13k113r Which is surprisingly slightly less brutal than DJ Russticals lmao

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Yeah they are all the way in. They sit about 1mm proud just due to the thickness of the metal. I suppose if you were really anal you could do a 1mm hole with the total OD and do it that way. The problem dude is how much is rattling. Picture frames, cups, the whole kitchen, the ceiling. There's...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Right, fat tummy removed haha. That's the bum bag with a big TV, you can't get away from it. Arrived around noon. Fitted the amp, decals to the back and legs. Deadening. Wadding. Woofer, badges, decal and hardware. Sound test. That noise is the flat. Headphones on should give you...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    hah. I made up the power leads ages ago. I made two spare, in case I ever upgraded. Which I did. First another amp, and now the sub. So that was a good plan ! Just for a note. I did not cover all of the cap bottoms and etc in that silastic. They did, I just continued the tradition :D

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    OK I am all set. I cut some graphics using proper 3M vinyl last week. I now have a full assembly kit, minus the woofer bolts which I lost so I have ordered more. Doh. Made up a Lapp Kabel with a rhodium plated plug, like the rest of the system. And got some more hard splitters. I have...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Finished packing it earlier. Covered every face in cardboard, then wrapped it. Then put cardboard on every edge and wrapped it again. I might have over done it a bit on the wadding......

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    90s for me. I moved to the USA in 2000 and all of my hobbies ended up in the toilet. In hindsight I should never have gone, but oh well we notch it up to experience. I cleaned out the port (still needs more cleaning from the half way mark back) and repainted the lip. I also painted the woofer...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Final coat of PU is down. I will let it harden fully now before tackling the last black work. As you can see the port is absolutely filthy. So I need to make a tool that I can wrap a cloth around and clean it out properly. I do not want to even think about running a sub in there until it's...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    From what I recall they were the best for SQ at the time. Which at the time wasn't what I was into. I always preferred the Stroker :D

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Started working with the leather. Hardest part was getting it squared and learning how to cut it. Turned into a bit of an ordeal, but it's there. I've cut two coasters also, and have loads of spare. I want to test the pinking shears on scrap first, as it is really thick.

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    Ah. It seems I forgot to post up another step. I've been really sick (med change, side effects). I got it done then was supposed to post it when I got home, but was too busy watching Netflix and listening to records :D Any way, I fitted the legs. It was a lot harder than I planned on it being...

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    If those are the 12s I am thinking about they were one of the best ever made. IIRC Image Dynamics sold out to China, along with Soundstream and loads of others.

    15" cinema subs cost how much?!?!

    I won't butter it up mate, it's hard and it's scary. Most people now use wood glue, but this means you need to vacuum bag the parts and then cut them at 45' and build it that way. Which for me was not an option. As such I used Evo Stik, AKA "Skinhead space costume". It absolutely stunk the...
