Thanks to the recent sales of some mopar parts and phoenix gear i had no use for anymore i can finally start to build the home speaker setup i always wanted. Klipsch speakers would have been nice, but due to space requirements i didn´t pull the trigger buying a set.

The last year i was collecting all the speakers for my built. While doing that i used some speakers i refreshed with some cheapo drivers as my temporary setup.

I´ve done a little bit to my home audio corner. Whenever i had time and all other things arround the house where done for a moment i worked on it.

The first thing i build and finished was the subwoofer enclosure to finally replace the cyclones and the enclosure i used to have in the BMW with something more proper for home audio. Using term pro going for a sealed enclosure and a low pass frequeny of 80Hz the math came up with an 225 litres enclosure. I build the box out of spruce wood plates that i glued together with a total thickness of 40mm. Some round stiffening braces inside the housing keep the enclosere from balooning up when the sub is doing it´s job.
After the enclosure was finished i colored it with mahagoni wood stain.

The next parts i needed where the spikes i wanted to place the enclosure on. Since i got my own lathe machine at home now, they were an easy project.

The sub is driven by a nice oldschool NAD amplifier with a total power output of 1,6kW into 4 Ohms.

I have been eyeing that as the bottom end of the stang if I could fit it but needless to say a box that big would not be an option. Just when you thought a cyclone box was big lol. Hows it sound?

Since i still need to finish the other two Speakers all the sub does is supporting the TV when i´m watching movies.
But pressure wise i´m pretty amazed.
