Huge Rubiks Cube Subwoofer

If you are wanting to add some bass to your home theater why build a Huge Rubik’s Cube Subwoofer! It isn’t as big as this gigantic subwoofer but it looks a lot more fun.

 

"Sealed Enclosure: 3 Cu. Feet Driver Diameter: 15", Aluminum Cone Outer Enclosure: 3/4" MDF Shell with 3/4" MDF ’tiles’ overlaying it, forming the Rubik’s Squares Reinforcement: 1 Y/Z-Axis piece of 3/4" MDF, cut to allow driver. 1 X/Y-Axis piece of 3/4" MDF, cut to allow driver and Plate Amp. 1 Z-Axis piece of 3/4" MDF, cut to allow Driver. 1 full piece of 1/2" MDF at top. 1 Cut piece of 3/4" MDF on bottom. Total Box measurements: 20.75" Wide, 20.75" Tall, 20.75" Long Tile size: Face: 7.5" X 7.5", Cube: 7.5" X 7.5" X 7.5" Total Measurements: 22.5" Wide, 25.5" Tall (w/ 3" feet), 22.5" Long Total Weight w/o Speaker, wiring, Poly-fil, Amplifier: ~98 lbs. Total Weight: ~144 lbs. It’s a beast, I must say, but before we begin how about some background information? My current system utilizes 2 Paradigm v3.0 Studio 100s (fronts), 1 CC-590 center, and 2 Studio 20s for 5.1 surrounds. Driving all that is an NAD T773, biamped with 2 NAD C272s for the fronts and discrete 7.1 inputs biamping the 20s – Long live the Canadian sound! Likewise, when I finally moved into my new apartment with space for a television (that’s a luxury in Boston) I wanted the extra kick for DVDs – what HT is complete without a sub? I’ll admit I’m a bit of a purest and can’t stomach the thought of attaching an external sub to my stereo so my search began for something that could rock the 60hz range in movies but neither force me to rewire every time I want to play a CD… Being a huge fan of my Paradigms, I naturally went to the accompanying model for my Studio 100s – the Direct Servo 15. Despite making a great sub, I also played around with the option I eventually went with – making one. Reasons for this were two-fold – I hadn’t taken on any art pieces in a while and just having dropped first, last, security, etc for the new place I didn’t want to make a large purchase (insert your Alanis Joke here). Long story short, I chose to go with a Rythmik Audio Servo-15. One visit to Rythmik Audio’s website and you can see that these guys aren’t messing around. "
