  • I know this is an older thread but I just built myself one of these. I wish I had done it years ago. I never really took it seriously as a 'real' subwoofer due to the size but it really performs nicely. I use it with a low powered tube amp for music in a decent sized room; it really adds the lower frequencies and blends easily with my speakers. I've tried 3 other subwoofers ($300 DIY to $700 factory built) in the same setup and this one sounds the best.

    I'm going to build a second one for that room and then one more for my computer room setup.

        thanks! I still can't get over how much these add to the music. The big plus is they blend so nicely with the main speakers that I don't even notice what the Voxels is adding until I turn it off.

    • Nice job, looks really expensive. How much watt do you give it?

      • thanks!

        I use the Dayton SA100, I had it from using with a dayton 8" sub so it is probably overkill here as I don't think this would like that much power but I keep the gain fairly low. My listening levels are usually pretty low.

        I'd love to find an amp for it that wouldn't thump when the power gets disconnected and reconnected. Not only could I make it switch off completely with the amp but when our power blinks it is an interesting sound in the middle of the night.

        I'm planning to build one more of these.

          I made a voxel years ago and used a tpa3116 2.1 amp and it popped like you said with your amp but i came across this amp board recently. It has 75 watt RMS at 4ohm for the subwoofer and 2 stereo channels. It have wifi and bluetooth and even dsp. The power supply is only 19V so not recommended but the remote is pretty cool. Just an idee but really cool amp boards at first look at it! BTW do you have port chuffing and wich diameter port do you use?
