I made a post a few months ago about the idea of building a subkick microphone. I showed the post to my mentor, Joey Heier, at Crystal Clear Recording Studio in Philly, and played the audio as well. He asked me if I could build a complete setup for him to use in his studio. So, I purchased a 6.5" woofer by Dayton Audio on the internet, while a friend and got all the other necessary parts, such as an XLR panel mount jack, wiring, etc. The wiring was easy, as we had already experimented with the concept. We mounted the speaker inside an 8" drum shell, which was donated to the cause by another one of Joey's students (thanks brotha!), using 3/4-inch corner braces. By some stroke of luck or pure basement engineering genius by me (I kid), the holes on the mounting rim of the speaker lined up perfectly with the holes in the braces, and it bolted on perfectly. I used sheets of window screen to cover the front and back, and bolted the rims back onto the drum (which were repainted black for aesthetics). Mounting the construction was the most expensive prospect, but still within a decent budget. I purchased a cymbal stand, a clamp, and a tom arm from a local music store so the microphone could be suspended and adjusted according to spacial needs. All the parts fit perfectly, and the whole design, at a little under four feet tall, is very sturdy. Pictures are attached to this post, and I hope to add some audio after I bring it over to Crystal Clear next week.
