I did it like that for a few reasons.

The original design from andrew @ audioholics does not use a plate amp,
it uses a Behringer EP2500 to Power two of these.
So, eventually I will Build another.
I wanted the flexibility of changing amps out, and for a future EP2500 or EP4000.

Also I would think, just like with Car amps, you shouldn't mount your amp on or in the box because of the vibrations.

Got some more pics.

Made some feet for the boxes.
Ordered some rubber feet that I will inset into the feet that I made.









Spray painted them with stainless steel spray paint.









The big feet will go on the sub box, and the little feet will go on the amp box.
I think the feet on the amp box might look funny---if it does, I'll just use the rubber feet.

GOT THE BOX DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall, I'm impressed with finish, the design, and the sound.
Eventually, I may try some polishing compound to try to mirror the finish a little more.
I've had the sub in a pre-fab Bassworx box 1.65cf tuned to 42hz since I bought the plate amp, and it sounded better than my 10" Cerwin Vega.
Put the sub in the new box, and WOW!! what a difference.
I'm feeling notes that I never knew were there. The SA240 really pushes the sub to its limit.
It doesn't shake the walls down, but its more than enough for my condo.

When I pulled the sub out of the old box, a piece of the trim ring came off. D'oh!
I have a blown Kappa, Does anyone know if I could use the trim ring off of that one for this one? Could this be done easily?



Heres some pics.

Thanks man. I might build a grill for it, or just buy a new sub eventually.

Bought a flat screen wall mount from Amazon for $55.
Looks like the ones Best Buy sells for $200-300.
Cheetah Mounts Plasma LCD Flat Screen TV Articulating Full Motion Dual Arm Wall Mount Bracket For 32-65" Displays Up To 165LBS Black With 10' High Speed HDMI Cable With Ethernet Fits Up To 24" Studs










I think my next project is to buy a HTPC case so the computer can go in the entertainment cabinet.--------Built that too a few years ago.
Then I'll build a twin brother for the Kappa.

Can anyone recommend a different subwoofer that would go good with this design?
