DIY 15" Passive sub

edited October 2016 in For Sale (FS) Classifieds
Up for sale is my PASSIVE DIY sub. It has been in use for the past year and a half or so. Never driven to hard for any length of time and will shake rattle and roll your pictures/glasses/kitchen cabinets all over.

Why am I selling if its that good you ask. Well my room needs a bit more cone surface, so I'm moving to dual 18" subs to help even out bass response and deal with the fact my room is open to a lot of space so I need more.

Plus I'm a bass head....

The sub is a 4.5 cubic foot box, tuned to 21hz. It was put together by me and a buddy and given roundovers on ALL sides, and was mounted as a downfiring sub, so its 100% kid friendly.

I have the original box for the driver and will include that with the sale, so you can upgrade the driver and sell and ship this one later if you desire.

It uses the following parts:
Asking price is 300 bucks as it stands. A amp is NOT included in this sale, nor is speaker wire.

Initially I will NOT sell the driver separate from the enclosure. I will NOT ship this beast as it is cost prohibitive. I am open to the option of meeting within a reasonable distance.

I also have a Dayton SA1000 amp that I can add to the sale as well for another 300 bucks and may even add a discount if you buy the full setup.

All kinds of pictures of the build in progress can be found below

    Glad you sold it. I really wanted the driver as I haven't seen one for sale in awhile. Just no need for the enclosure. Dual sealed is what i'm after as well.

    Yeah, and selling the driver and still having the enclosure does me no good :smile:.

    What's that?

    Moving to dual 4 cubic foot sealed boxes, each with a Dayton Ultimax 18" driver, powered initially by a Crown XLS2000 in stereo, and eventually 2 Crown XLS 2000's, each one bridged....

    Here's the build thread of the first sub. Once this and the Dayton amp sell, its time to purchase kit #2....

    No, I meant I have no idea what you mean by "moving stuff out to bring new stuff in." Completely foreign concept.

    I'm offended by the term hoarder. I prefer to classify myself as a curator.

    Lol.... it's either I move it out or I move out...

    Besides a 15 won't work well with dual 18's....

    Oh and I forgot the OTHER 18" driver going in the loft in a HUGE box (think large coffee table size)...

    So I can give up the small little one, especially to build some extra cash for more big drivers lol

    Wonder who his source is for the 24s....

    I decided my midlife will be buying a old CRX and removing the rear seat and dropping in a pair of 8" full range in the doors w tweeters in the pillar and a 24" in the rear, just to do it lol
