So your sub can output over 110dB, but is it a Death Star?

LOL! Now that is funny!

It sold for $540. (L310). I'd consider that a fair price for such a unique product.

OK Metalaaron, now you are REALLY starting to worry me. Your first big E-bay find was the Beer-Keg Hovercraft, and NOW you've come up with a Death Star Subwoofer! Once again I need to ask what were you actually searching for?
1. A Death Star? :confused:
2. A subwoofer? ;)
3. OR were you actually trying to find a Death Star Subwoofer? :eek:

The Death Star subwoofer made the rounds on Slashdot and the Make blog a couple days ago. I gather it also appeared on other sites as well.

Here's how to make your own:

hehehe (randy) i saw it on the same tv show and thought some of you needed to see it. of course, who would admit to that search anyways? ;) hehe

they should attempt an R2-D2 cylinder sub, or maybe a chewbacca electrostat?

I'm afraid to admit it but the Death Star Subwoofer thing has piqued my interest. I'm now wondering what the plusses or minuses (acoustic-wise) are to a sphere for a sub enclosure. I was looking at the way the owner built this thing, and, while it turned out looking pretty good it could have been built much easier and lighter with a somewhat different approach.

Seems like I can't get this sphere shaped subwoofer out of my head. How about a "disco ball" subwoofer...ya know hanging from the ceiling with thousands of little mirrors on it. Any guesses as to what the freq. response would look like with the sub hanging from a wire and slowly spinning around??
