Well, why would you need 1000 watts of pure power when you don't have any decent speakers yet.

And why would you drop $900 on a subwoofer driver, and not PROPERLY power it?

Well, my house only supplies 1500 Watts of power besides the laundry room. Its legistically a bad ides to even push more than 1kw RMS out of a such when my computer pushes about 550 Watts gaming, with decent speakers is 100 Watts ems or so times 5, then in the summer, I have a window unit AC on, in the winter, a 900 Watt radiator... with 1kw in a sub, I'd kill my breaker every day I played dubstep.

Quality bass matters a lot to me, but I plan on doing a custom build for my speakers. What do you guys think about fiberglass enclosures vs MDF?

I guess ill get some new silk domes, then attempt to find a way to make my bx5a's battery powered and test fiberglass enclosure on that, it should be fun to get some sexy curves in the iPod dock, which will actually be USB, RCA, ad 3.5mm available, USB charging, computer cord lowered and self charging.

Basically, all I need to do is figure out how to make it battery powered and find a mini USB charging pre amp that works off iPod, phones, flash and external drives, has RCA, an auxiliary. The fiberglass will be cake.

A crossover will not be needed, and I will really make the plate amps. Can anyone help me with links to learn what I need to learn?


By the way, that custom build will be before what I plan to build later, when I learn more. Ill use my velodyne for a while until I can get better. I might use mg mbquarts car amp hooked up to speakers for a while too because my NAD T751 is dead now.

In anycase, why would I need more than 120db? My velodyne without the servo working at my friend's house party made pictures fall off his wall with clean, tight bass.

MDF. Don't mess with fiberglass if you don't have to. The only reason to use it is for improved diffraction and even then you can shape MDF or use a waveguide or whatever. Really the least of your concerns at this point. Very small effect on the sound compared to say, driver selection or crossover design.

Why an ipod dock? Whats wrong with bringing speakers and an amp with you and plugging in the ipod?

Well, the bx5a are garbage anyway... even though they are garbage, they still sound better than a $500 iPod dock. I want personal satisfaction in my $180 being worth what I spent, plus, maybe apple will hire me if I come in with a custombuilt iPod dock that rapes their Bowers and Wilkins one. I do need a decent job lol.

As for fiberglass, I want to learn how to fabricate with fiberglass and carbonfibre anyway, why not start on small projects with dual purpose? So you're telling me that the mdf actually sounds better? Not to mention, fiberglass is stronger, thinner, lighter, and looks sexy with curves and a nice paint job. It would even be easy to make a resessed logo for my product.

It's apple. You walk in with some custom ghetto setup and they'll probably sue you for distracting customers and taking away potential sales lachen.gif.
/sarcasm

If you want to use fiberglass, start a case mod or something. I haven't looked into it extensively but from what I can tell fiberglass is too light and it's resonant frequency is way too high. The same reason you don't want to use plastic. With something like mdf the resonant frequency is much lower than metal or plastic so it doesn't mess with the sound as much. Weight is usually good so the speakers stay in one spot and don't rattle around (over-exaggeration, but you get the point).

MDF is what you want to use thumb.gif.
