Project Description:

Trying to improve my home audio experience and a good bounding experience with a oldest Grandson!

Design Goals:

Supplement my home audio and add more bass to our movie experience.

Driver Selection:

One Epique E180HE-44 7″ DVC MMAG Extended Range Subwoofer 4 Ohm per Coil wired in series for 8 ohms load.
Two Epique E180HE-PR 7″ Carbon Fiber Cone Passive Radiator

Enclosure Design:


Crossover Design:

Active crossover built into unit

Tips & Tricks:

When using un-backed veneer, superglue is your friend to prevent tear out when trimming your edges!


I have no means to measure the over all response, but the output from such a small speaker is pretty impressive to me.

About the Designer:

Have a small wood shop full of tools that exceed my capability, I’ve always enjoyed car and home audio and have built multiple subwoofer and a few 2 ways speakers. I’m a retired Firefighter/Paramedic from Western Kentucky.

    That is a cool build! It’s looks like something I may want to try. I’ve dabbled in the speaker building a little bit but have been out of it for a few years. Thank you for your service as a firefighter, I have the most respect for what you do. I am an auto worker in the Louisville Kentucky area.
