It’s taken long enough, but I finally finished the sub-woofer in the floor. A few photos to help tell the story (full set here)
Here’s the room before I started, and then when completed – not too much difference which is exactly what we were aiming for. There is some trimming to do which will make it even less visible. :-
Of course there was a time when it looked less neat. Here’s the hole in the roof :-
Mounting the driver was slightly tricky since it weighs a lot, and had to be held to the roof whilst bolts were inserted. Thank heavens for the ceiling clamp you can see here, but even then it was hard work :-
With the door open (or off in this shot) you can see the driver, and the vent holes through the cupboard – it needs to be able to shove a lot of air around without restriction :-
End result is that it’s in and neat and sounds pretty good. I haven’t equalized it yet, or worked out the safe limits for film effects, but all in all not bad for a day’s work. Especially since I didn’t actually start until 10.
