Default Transmission Line Enclosure for Boomintahoe

This is a design that I've been working on for boomintahoe(member on ca.com). Figured I'd post some pictures and get your opinons. It still needs a little work to integrate the plate amp into it. I'll have to make a separate chamber on the back for it.

Anyways, this enclosure is for a single 8" Dayton subwoofer. It will be used in a home theater setup. This enclosure is a transmission-line style enclosure and has a line length of 11.5' (yes, that's feet, not inches) and is tuned to 25Hz :crazy:

Laying down some guidelines... this gets tedius:crap:



Port line walls mapped out... all 11.5 feet of it:crazy: Pain in the ass measuring out all of those ****ed 45 degree braces...



Walls put up




Hole for sub.







Just realized though that the dayton 8" driver has a big ass magnet assembly and has a 4.5" mounting depth. Looks like I'll have to figure out something with the baffle or the sub will have to be ran inverted because the port is only 2" wide....

EDIT:

Alright, so I came up with the idea to just use an extra ring, kinda like you would in a door speaker to gain some depth. I made it that shape just it wouldn't look gay as just a ring. I think it looks somewhat interesting




A little added graphics to give it that fit'n'finished look.








Still needs a bit of work to incorporate the plate amp. It's not a done deal yet, but let me know what you guys think.

that's a good looking enclosure. I actually really like the extra baffle. If you really do the dayton audio sticker on the front it'd be pro.

Hmm, I just did the design for him. He's actually going to build it himself. I'm sure this thing takes up about the same amount of wood as a 10 cube regular box lol.

Yeah, I finished the box and it just needed something else. So I googled Dayton Audio and plastered the logo on the front. Looks pretty legit IMO
