  1. That's the plan. I will be making these in oak, walnut & cherry.
  2. Most musical sub i ever heard. Hate to sell and be without a subwoofer
  3. The sub is very solid and will not spill a drop even playing how ya like me now at full volume. Your windows, doorjambs, and anything not bolted down around it will wander around the room.

    Table Tuba

    Selling one last Tuba here to help get my new business up and running. This will only be here for a limited time since no commercial sales are allowed here at the forum so act quickly. There is quite a bit of extra work involved with this unit besides the normal tuba build with all the veneer & finish. Red oak veneer with solid oak legs & drawer fronts. Cabinet uses 15" panels & optional 10" driver for maximum output. Located 1/2 Hr N/W of Chicago & price is $900
  5. . The La Scala bass will be louder too if you turn it around and face it to the wall or a corner but it works fine faced into a room, same with the Tuba, plenty of output unless you are trying out for an SPL contest. Even at very loud listening levels with my THT facing my listening position there was no lack of bass. I never had an issue personally at Bills forum.
  6. The TT with the driver enclosed produces a slight dip in output around 90 Hz, since i crossover my sub below 80 Hz it should make little difference.
  7. Thank You I have an access panel on my TT because without it needs to be 1 1/2-2" from a wall/floor. The way i make my doors is use the cutout from the plywood door & on the inside of the driver enclosure is glue & screw 3/4" plywood 7/8" high to the inside of the driver enclosure recessed 1/2" or whatever thickness your plywood is and then screw and T nut the cutout access panel on.
  8. Thank you for the compliments. The table tuba sounds very similar to the Tuba HT, it just does not dig as low. I think the TT is better with music than the HT though both blend seamlessly with the La Scala sound. I can see the Tuba HT would be better with a home theater but that is what it was designed for anyways. Out of the two i think i will stick the Table Tuba for my system. Also i am considering being an authorised builder of Bill's designs for extra income, in the meantime it keeps me busy and it is fun building these things. Probably i will stick with the line arrays & subwoofer designs but i will take things one step at a time.
  9. Finally finished. Just got it in the room and hooked up, sounds great so far. More details after i spend some time with it.
  10. Tuba HT is in the garage for some sanding and a re-paint, it will be available again after the coming weekend (Nov 3rd).
  11. I purchased 4 rubber feet but have not installed them yet. The inside of the oak legs have a piece if 3/4" oak 1/4 round on the inside just so i have a place to screw the foot screws into. This will be the final step.
  12. Thank you for all the compliments. The Rust- Oleum Varathane finish is really bringing out the woodgrain on the red oak. 4 more coats of varathane, some sanding & glue on the drawer fronts and its done.
  13. Got to make room for my new sub, Sold. Invitations open for a test drive if you want to hear the subwoofer. It may be in the garage for some tuning up while i spend some time with the table tuba after the weekend.
  14. First coat of stain is on, i should have the sub finished this week. Cant wait to hear it.
  15. It is hard to find good recordings, they are few and far inbetween. I would certainly pay more for an album that is recorded well but not 10 times as much, maybe if it was one of my favorites i would be willing to pay out but of course there would be limits forking out much $ for something that should sound right to begin with.
  16. Bob probably has what you need in stock. http://www.critesspeakers.com/prices-crossover_repair_kit.html
  17. You have been warned about the warning.
  18. LOL my issue has been more breaking my toes on couch legs. Every piece of furniture now has to have legs set back. I swear i have broken every toe on this couch i had for years, feel sorry for the couple i gave it to.
  19. That's the plan. It will look even better when the rest of the red oak is installed. I will post my opinion between the Tuba HT and the Table Tuba sonic differences when i get a chance.
  20. Probably 6-8" legs will be used for around 23- 25" total height
