I made this custom Voxel subwoofer.  I made a few changes, such as making it active with a 50w amplifier and a variable low pass.  It has a solid cherry inlay.

I built this sonosub with the Dayton 250w amplifier and a Dayton Reference 8" subwoofer.  I made this into a functional end table.

UM18 Marty Cube with hemlock trim and mahogany veneer in down firing configuration. Conceived as an end table but at 27"x 25" x 27" slightly on the large side 🙂 My dad and I worked on this together over a few months.  This was a fun project but a lot of finish work. I am happy with the results and it has pretty substantial output with a bridged inuke 3000DSP at 1200 watts.

What is the end table sub tuned to Toid? Is it still in use?

It is tuned to 24Hz with an F3 of about 22Hz.  BUt the sub's excursion was a little too limited.  Interestingly enough, the 8" Ultimax would drop right in the same box and have the exact same tuning and port length and could handle full power.  Someday, I need to buy an 8" Ultimax and drop it in there.

UM8 now on sale 🙂 I've had a few of the UM18's and built a few 3cft sealed boxes with UM15's for a friend. Other than one defective VC, they have been very durable and performed well.

I put 2 um 8s in my honda ridgeline. 1.65 @32 Hz. They surprised me on how well they play lower frequencies for 8s. Hopefully car audio isn't frowned on here but I do a little bit of both..

I know I said, try to limit conversation in the Inspiration gallery.  But I want to go on record and say, car audio is not frowned upon at all!  In fact, if we get enough people interested in car audio, it'll have it's own section!  Car audio is how I got into this game.  And I personally love seeing it!  Great job on the box!

  My Dinas in Walnut.  This is my first speaker build.  They turned out ok inspite my ineptness.  I'm embarased to post progress photos because of all the things that went wrong.  It was quite a learning experience and I'm sure the next build will be easier.  If anyone is interested in learning from my errors or in need of comic relief,  I can be persuaded to post progress photos.

I don't know what problems you had but the finished product looks great to me.

First and foremost...WOW!  Those are gorgeous!  I absolutely love them.  Please do start a build log of them.  We have all had our own issues when building.  Part of the camaraderie is learning from others mistakes.  I wish I could say I haven't had any (I had one today..smh).  Please do share.  As well as how you feel about the Dinas in general.
