Table Tuba

You want a horn loaded home theatre sub that can deliver over 110dB at 20 Hz. Your wife's reply is "Over my dead body do I share my living room with a big sub-woofer thing." The answer? No, not a .38 Special. It's Table Tuba, a 30x30x16 inch horn loaded sub that will do double duty as a piece of fine furniture, so you can have the sound you want and she won't complain about it.

You can load the Table Tuba with an eight or a ten inch woofer. Here's a 1m/1W half-space SPL chart, loaded with the MCM 55-2421 eight, comparing the Table Tuba to a typical fifteen loaded 5 cubic foot sealed sub:

Check out this review by builder Fernando Sabio:

"I've had my TT completed for just over a month now and I'm really enjoying it...I loaded it with an HL10 ...giving it an estimated 240 watts, it scares first time listeners on movie tracks. I've vibrated dishes off our kitchen counter above my HT room - oops...My mains are "fast" speakers and this is the first sub I've heard that can keep up with them (others I've heard: Sunfire, Mirage, HSU, DIY- A/D/S 312rs.2 x 2 sealed) I like listening to music in "2-channel" mode, and with my other subs, I'd have to turn them off when listening to some albums b/c they sounded so slow/fake that they distracted from the music. With the TT, I leave it on supplementing my mains when listening to hip-hop/dance/house, I just goose the gain on my QSC for some extra oomph, and the TT is glad to oblige. It's so sensitive relative to my other speakers, that the TT seems like it's being held back just to keep equilibrium."

There are many ways to disquise the TT's true function. This is builder Leland Crooks TT. It looks like a dry sink, it functions as CD/DVD storage cabinet, all the whilst hiding a room rattling sub.

Also available: the Table Tuba Long Style.

Measuring 15 inches high and 60 inches long, use the Long Style version if the WAF dictates a rectangular shape. Or stand it on end next to the wall or in a corner when floor space is at a premium. Or toss some cushions on it and use it as a combination sub and couch. It's the same TT sound, only the shape has changed.

And the best news: these are very easy cabs to build. Don't have a table saw? No problem, you can cut all the parts with a hand-held circular saw, and get perfectly straight cuts too. The plans show you how. Don't have a router for dado joints? No matter. Fancy joinery techniques aren't required, you can even do the fastening with a hammer and nails. The only way it could be easier would be if someone else built it for you, and one of our Builders will do that too if you need it.
