Anyone heard of this "DIY" Sub Company? GSG Audio

Recommended Posts

I think this is a guy off of the AVS forum. Early on I really wanted to try the Marty sub as it get rave reviews.

Right?   I Def thought they looked appealing.   If others chime in and try them, stating they are amazing, perhaps I may swing for a pair at some time.   I am close enough to the company to go demo a pair, which I may do....

You guys what are currently or have previously used these subs, are you using them for HT only or with music as well?   I have zero interest in HT, and want musical subs that arent ridiculously sized and pack a wallop.

CNC cut cabinet pieces in a flat pack, with detailed assembly instructions, at a fair price. One thing I would "upgrade" if assembling some of these is the driver mounting wood screws. I would use machine screws with T-nuts.

T nuts never seem to stay put using MDF, if you happen to get them to work installing the driver they are even more likely to pull out if you ever remove the driver making a big headache.

 

I would just stick with proper screws, yes they can strip out but an easy fix to repair.

I have two of the Marty, 2 Mini Marty and Marty cube.  These are excellent subs and not just for HT. They are large subs and tuned low.  I had some of these at the same time I had sealed subs and have all vented subs now.  I heard no difference using the vented vs sealed due to the low tuning with music.

I agree.  I drill the pilot hole.  Then slightly hammer in the T-Nut.  Then put little drops gorilla glue underneath the T-nut then hammer in flush.

 

Then take the matched bolt with a very large washer and sinch.  Leave this way overnight.  The T-nut is stable......just my experience.

 

Wood screws have worked for me when I've used them even in MDF.  Certainly a quicker process.  What is the consensus here for driver screws?   #8 or #10 coarse thread?

On the phone with the owner now.   This guy is awesome. I'm gonna pull the trigger on something with this company.   They are just starting up full retail to the public, but have been doing this for years.   Reasonably priced as well.   I don't think I can go wrong here.

Polyurethane based glues do not work well on metal from my experience, it peels off fairly easy if you wish to test it out for yourself. PLx3 is no better (poly based).

 

If you really want to use T nuts i recommend using jwc's method using shoe goo or epoxy for the adhesive or use 2 or 3 small screws using the screw heads overlapping the installed T nut to assure they won't pull out.

Never heard of the company but awesome that the Martysub is going mainstream. I absolutely love mine. Hands down this sub is the best value you will ever find in home theater.

I used #10 1" panhead screws with my daytons. Mounted them in both flat pack sealed boxes and the Marty sub without any issues.

Yessir.  Beasts need to be complimented by beasts.   These Jbls are I slouch and I've had them a long time, but there is Def room for improvement.

I have invited the owner of GSG Audio to sign up and join in on this forum. Surely he's a busy guy, but maybe hell join us here before long.
