Okay, it's done, I've put the finishing touches on the BassMaker(tm). Here's a quick link (http://www.geocities.com/sunnyp66/sonosub/donesub2.jpg) to it. Plus, you can see the How-to photos for the cover by clicking here (http://www.io.com/~patman/sunosub.html) and going to the July 31 section of the page.
All the information you need to build you a BassMaker(tm) is on that page.
And I mean that literally! http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/wink.gif
Nice job Pat. How does it sound? And have you noticed the absence of small animals and birds in your neighborhood lately? http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/wink.gif

Now that's a subwoofer!!!!!
Do you know what the max SPL is?

Blade, thanks! The question is not how it sounds, but how it feels! It feels great. I'm serious. When I watch my DVDs, I feel the SPL's now. It's tuned to 19Hz, and its low end is pretty nice. It needs to be EQ'd to get rid of an in-room hump around 56-63Hz though. When I watch my AC-3 Ld of The Phantom Menace, I feel the light sabers swooming through the room. Yeah, I like it. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Beejay, I don't have a real beefy amp yet (just a couple of amp channels with 80W/ch feeding each of the 2 drivers), so I don't know what the max SPL is, but I'm fearful of structural damage, so I don't get to crazy with it. I just like knowing I have plenty of bass reserves now. My next major purchase will be a better amp, hopefully 300W/ch @ 4 Ohms to feed both drivers.

That really does look nice. Woof! Are you going to move it around and experiment? I know that bass is considered to be omni-directional, but every room is a different tune.

At this point, I can't really put it anywhere but where it's now located. If/when I get into a more conventional rectangular room, I'll move it in one of the corners and see where it sounds/feels the best. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
