  • Home Sub

    This is an old build but a worthy one.
    Adire Audio 15" Brahma DVC woofer.
    Sealed 3/4" MDF cabinet extensively braced and covered inside with jute.
    Hypex HS500 amp separated inside the box in its own enclosure.
    19"(H) X 22"(W) X 23"(D)
    Covered with oak veneer, 45 deg. routered edges and painted with semi-gloss urethane.

    Clean, low, warm bass and it gets loud too;).

    Very nice build. The finish is awesome.
    Audiophiles listen to the equipment, not the music.

        Absolutely beautiful work! I wish I had the talent (tools and time) to produce a piece like that!

            Do you have any step-by-step photos?

              Unfortunately, they went with the old computer when it crashed. I'll check old e-mails at work for some.

              It is flush mounted in its own pocket like most plate amps. It also has a built-in fan. Hypex builds state-of-the-art amps but, they are expensive.

              Thanks you for the props. You would be amazed what you can do with a router, table saw, jigsaw and clamps.
              This box was done using just those tools and some weights on a piece of MDF to glue on the laminate.

              Adire Audio went out of business years ago. They were a true DIY company with alot of intelligent people. They invented XBL technology which is used in some of the name brand woofer manufacturers today to keep cone excursion in a very linear path. I wish I could still get them since my local builder is good but, not as good as Adire Audio was.
