Eminence 10

How can I make a subwoofer for my guitar rig?

I want to build a subwoofer for my guitar rig. I know of the ISP technologies subs. But they cost a little too much for me. Just wondering if anyone knows how to make one identical to that specific model?

To build one identically, you would have to get an identical driver (raw speaker). Unfortunately, that will probably not happen.

Speaker building isn't an easy task. First off, your enclosure has to be perfectly measured. A box that is too small will be lacking in low end, while a box that's too big will cause a muddy, muffled effect.

You will also need to choose a proper driver. A good bass driver should reach at least 1,200Hz, but 2,00 or even as much as 4,00 is more optimal for capturing the overtones unique to the guitar.

Right now, Parts-Express has this Eminence 10" Bass Guitar driver on sale for $60. Two, or even four of these would make a nice rig. By connecting two of these in parallel, you will have yourself a 4 ohm set-up. If you want 4 speakers, you will want to conect two parallel pairs in a series to keep the 4 ohms.

You will also want to design or buy a low pass filter (or crossover). This particular driver has a maximum frequency of 2,000Hz, so I would use an 18 dB per octave low pass crossover at about 1,200 to 1,400 Hz.

Now all that is left is to design a cabinet. You can find many calculators online to help you determine what size box you need. Here is a simple one.
