post #161 of 498
Tomorrow Il check out some amp kits and maybe one of those clocks they look really cool too. One question though, why do you all have these sharp spikes under the speakers?

It's to decouple the speakers, in other words, isolate the speakers/surface from unwanted vibrations that can affect the sound.

Problem is that the above definition is what most people will give you, but that may not be entirely true:

Audio is pretty much YMMV sorta stuff, no one, one hundred percent correct answer.

Thanks for the advice. The problem is, the Bash amps won't fit in the Dayton enclosure. I would have preferred the bash amp as well just based on reviews, but I don't have the skills to actually build an enclosure, hell, I'm trying to avoid having to make my own cutouts as well. From the reviews I have read, the Dayton amps have humming noises that can only be solved with a ground loop..

They have some better amps, check it out.

EDIT: OAudio has a few BASH amps, good quality stuff:

Also check out Apex audio, but the first two suggestions are better.

Something to consider, elemental designs makes some great subs, why not just buy an assembled one?

thanks for the links. The reason I have decided not to simply buy a subwoofer is because they tend to be much more expensive, even when the equipment is much lower quality compared to that of the kit i listed earlier. I will look at some of those elemntal design ones though. Are there any you would recommend in particular?

If your not good at carpentry, and experienced, your DIY will most likely end up not great, and the same price would buy you better.

x2 on Elemental, you wont find much else for the money. All there subs are great . There are other companies, but I have never been disappointing with ED products.

There heavy on bracing, and are designed well for there price.

Simple walls for a sub woofer wont cut it. My box has more wood bracing inside, than walls.

Rewired my JVC RX900s, sleeved the cable with red cable sleeving, added new jacks at each end, and modded a 1/8" female adapter into the headphone cup so I can unplug them from my computer and plug in a different shorter cable if I decide to take them elsewhere
