  1. I have a few Martin Audio W3 passive 15s that I could use if I want to go that loud. This system is aimed at smaller speakers, for quieter/closer listening with more emphasis on low end extension. I will experiment with larger folding baffles though, thanks!
  2. This is pretty close to my findings too, I ran 80hz on bass music and 100hz on house/techno, I'll probably try 110hz next time for a little more punch. 12db LR for both, I haven't needed a high pass yet as I've running bugger all power so far.
  3. In the video he said around $1000 canadian dollars
  4. The 21DS115-4's would be ideal, but any of the other drivers that suit these would also work. I'm in Adelaide and have a friend in Melbourne building some of these also, the cheapest we can find so far is Parts Express ebay site
  5. Does anyone have a hookup for a place in Australia that sells drivers that suit these, or an American company that wont charge separate shipping on each one? I'm almost ready to upgrade to some 21s and they're all outrageously expensive to get to Australia
  6. Had my next party on Sunday on the beach with my 2x skrams and 2x Martin W3 tops running from an inverter in my Prius from 2pm till nearly 2am, averaged around 1000w into the whole system (including the CDJs and amps and a few LED lights) and used about 5L of fuel in the car. Around 150 people at the peak of the dancefloor, everyone seemed to love it! Definitely need to build 2 more of these things and upgrade to the proper drivers for even better sensitivity to keep up with the tops
  7. Finally got around to doing some measurements, I'm no expert but here's what I've got so far. 1 sub in the back yard, running off 1 channel of an EV Q1212 at 8 ohms (havnt measured gains or anything yet, just sitting on what sounded good at my last party). UMIK-1 sitting 1 meter from the front, both flat on the grass (UMIK on the stand it came with) The green line is no crossovers, just straight from my PC, through the aux jack into a pioneer DJM2000 mixer, then RCA to Mosconi 6to8 DSP and then RCA>XLR into the EV. The orange line is what I ran at the last party, 2x 80hz 12d
  8. After much deliberation and reading many threads I'm starting to think that rebuilding the 2 monitors to include better low end extension is a better idea than a separate sub. Even that tapped horn design is too big to fit in the car as well as the 2 monitors unfortunately, but if I have 2 larger boxes rather than 3 smaller ones it might package nicer. Next step is to do some modelling and figure out what alignment to do, sealed, ported, bandpass? 1 or 2x anarchy per box? Etc etc
  9. Unfortunately not, they are quite old now and I've lost the boxes and paperwork that came with them, the website only has the specs from the 2017 model onwards which is the series after these so I'm not sure how much different they are (I'd expect they're close but probably not close enough for an accurate model)
  10. Sounds perfect from the title! Il have a read tonight I have an Alpine CDA9887 head unit so should be able to manage a reasonable crossover on that
  11. No idea, I just put them in because I had them laying around. Will definitely be upgrading to 21"s at some point but I can build 2 more boxes with the same drivers for basically no money, still use my current amp and have nicer bass than any other amateur outdoor system in my area, and easily outplay any but the biggest nightclub in my city if I decide to do another indoor party. I'm away interstate at the moment but I need to drag them out for a beach party next week so il do some measuring with REW and UMIK1 and post results then.
  12. Any updates on this? From what I've read over the last couple of days you seem to be heading in a similar path to me but a few years ahead. I currently have 2x Skram and 4x Martin W3 and throwing ~100 person parties in the Australian bush, but hope to build up a similar system and party size to yours in the next couple of years (it's been pushed back a bit now due to covid obviously) My amps are a miss match of JBL, QSC and EV which works fine for a 3 way system now but il need to add more with extra subs in the near future
  13. This is the space I have to work with, il get measurements when I'm home in a few days, I don't currently have the car with me
  14. Hey guys, After joining this forum yesterday to thank Rikki for the Skram plans I built this time last year I'm very happy to see its pretty active still, so I thought I'd throw my next project into the mix. The goal: a portable sub to go with my small monitors that live in my car and get pulled out while camping, at the beach or on job sites. The restrictions: small size, low power (I know, bass needs to be big, this is an issue haha) The gear: Currently the monitors have 2x CDT 6.5" coaxials per side in a sealed box, these will be upgraded eventually but sound fine for
  15. Thanks! I'm aware these won't even be close to the sound that the proper drivers and power will give, I have built them in such a way that the entire back panel is removable so I can cut a new baffle and add more bracing for the proper drivers when funds allow. For now I'm blown away at the efficiency and smooth response already and I'm finding low end in songs I didn't know existed on local club systems I've played on so I can't imagine what they will sound like with the proper drivers and a bucket load more power. I think the most power I've put into them so far is about 15
  16. That looks like an absolute monster. I'd be inclined to stick to Skrams simple so you can actually pick them up and move them, 180kg+ for one box is crazy to me if you are touring
  17. Hey guys, I built 2 of these monsters on Boxing Day last year (seemed appropriate) for a New Years party out in the Australian bush, its almost that time of year again and I plan do do 2 more this season so I thought it would be fitting to come back here and thank you for the excellent plans and a year of happy bassing! I didn't (and still don't) have the money for some nice big PA 18"s nor the amps to run them so I am using 4x cheap 10" car audio drivers per box that i had laying around (Memphis SR10 to be precise) and I am blown away by the smooth low end output compared to any other p
