Man, that looks good.

Thank you so much for the information, inspiration, and the electronics to get me going.  :D

I became a little obsessed with the idea of having a super solid base, inert for my sub so I added two thicknesses of ¾" Baltic Birch to the bottom then ran my cherry around it.  I don't know if it changed the sound but I like the way it looks and this unit is a seriously solid, heavy sub now.

Russelberg,
Your sub cabinet looks fantastic.  Nice wood working shop by the way!  About how many hours do you have in this build?

Thanks,

EJ

I didn't keep close track but I would guess around 6-8.  I had to glue the cherry on each side individually so I typically did about 2 sides per day.  The actual construction of the box does not take long and because I did not have to get the MDF to any finish state I could move quite quickly with glue and brads.

Great looking case!! I may need to borrow inspiration from your work when i build mine.

I just barely purchased mine. I have the sub it self but not the amp yet. How long did it take for you to receive it?

Mine came together as a kit from Danny so everything got to me in one box.  I live in Canada so it took a little longer but it was a very reasonable shipping time.  Danny shipped it the same day I ordered it.

Excellent job on the cabinet.  It's challenging to convince the non-believers that this quality and attention to detail is only found in cabinets at the highest end of audio and priced accordingly.  I took last week off and spent roughly 50 hours in my garage workshop on a pair of X-LS's.  Considering I live in Florida, it's mid-summer, and last week was a scorcher...  The joy these speakers will bring over the years far out weighs the lasting effects of dehydration, heat stroke, and exhaustion.  The funny part is...  I'm only a little bit joking and my wife was non too happy that I can't seem to harness that enthusiasm when it comes to cutting the grass in September.   :roll:

Eyy another Floridian! I feel ya on the weather, ive been waiting 3-4 days now for a day where its not 110% humidity so i can work on getting my NX-studios veneer ready..
I love my X-LSs, & I know you will too!  :thumb:

Hah! We all know that the reason there's no passion in cutting grass is that we know it'll need to be cut again next weekend. :P
There's no joy in it until the cooler weather finally rolls in around December.. :lol:

It just occurred to me. This sub does not get sheets of no rez? Is it because it's a closed sub?

If you read the description of the servo sub kit #2, one sheet of no-rez will do!  Here is a quote from Danny’s website!

“Lining the cabinet walls with No Rez really helps minimize cabinet resonances and provides a cleaner and smoother sound. A sealed box cabinet will require 1 sheet. “

I got the sub (amp did not arrive with subwoofer, I am hoping it will arrive sometime this week) I did not get a sheet of no rez.

It’s not included in kit, you order separately!   Call Danny and see if you can get one sheet shipped with your plate amp.
