    My new subwoofer!

    Well, actually it's my new subwoofer enclosure. I'm just waiting for the Adire Audio Tumult to arrive.

    Here's a link to the description as well as a pic.

    Looking good

    Is the top marble?

      Thomas,

      It's 1.125" MDF with a faux marble finish done by a local artist for an incredibly low price!

        Very nice looking, Brian. What's the ETA on the woofer?

        I've been debating back and forth between building an AS-15 for my HE-15, or doing something much more like yours, with a Linkwitz transform, lots of watts, and a relatively small box. I don't really need the SPL advantage of the ported system right now. I'm sure the sealed one is more than capable of breaking my lease!

        Have you ever seen any actual near field or 1 meter plots for the Tumult? I'm just curious about the VC inductance roll off and how flat the response is between 40 Hz and 125 Hz- this is an area requiring some equalization in most long throw drivers, but the Tumult is a bit lower VC inducatance than most- certainly less than the HE-15 or Blueprints I have.

        I bet you're just dying to get that pupppy running; let us know how it turns out once you've got it up and running and tweaked up!

        Best regards,

        Jon

          Thanks Jon! Last I heard (last week) the drivers are supposed to be built mid-February so I'm hoping they'll be in by the end of the month. I've got a customer in Philly waiting on two of these. Nothing this fancy though. Same internal box, but with black laminate.

          Have you ever seen any actual near field or 1 meter plots for the Tumult? I'm just curious about the VC inductance roll off and how flat the response is between 40 Hz and 125 Hz- this is an area requiring some equalization in most long throw drivers, but the Tumult is a bit lower VC inducatance than most- certainly less than the HE-15 or Blueprints I have.
          No, I haven't seen any of that. I'm sure if we asked nicely Dan could get that for us. Maybe Mr. Gilvey could sweet talk him since the Tumult is his baby, first and foremost.

          I'M CHOMPING AT THE BIT! I've had my K2 for months and my BFD for almost a year now. I've just refused to hook up the BFD until I got this mother going. I'm using the K2 on my dual SV12 enclosures at the moment. Makes me really hate plate amps!

            But Brian, what's the cost delta?

            Nice looking sub! I hope the patient wait for the drivers proves to be worthwhile.

              Now, Hank, how can something that looks as good as this NOT be worth waiting for? :B

                Another half-assed hack-job from Brian's shop.




                Beautiful.

                Hmm, that being the case I'll just wait for one to show up at my door.
