    I thought I should post a BIG THANK YOU to everybody here. With out you and the Forum I would have never tried to build a Tempest AA! I am not a wood guy at all and you all made it very easy for me to build it. I have never used a router before and I even made my own circle jig with your help. If I can build one of these with your help anybody can!

    I would post a picture but, I can not seem to get it on here?

    Thank You one and all!!

    Bill

    Bill,

    There's one thing about building your own nice sub - you appreciate the sound that it can produce for such little money. Plus, since almost any homebuilt sub could trounce on any sub sold by Best Buy or Circuit City, you longer have to feel envious when you go into those stores because you'll know you have something better at home.

    Plus, homebuilt subs tread up on and even best some of the better subs that are sold only via the Internet.

    Looking forward to your pics of your build. [​IMG]

    Nice. Looks like the sub that Acoustic Visions built me many moons ago.

    What kind of veneer did you use for your sub?

    Graham,

    I'll start a new thread, "Tempest Pictures". Allen Ross has been kind enough to post them for me. I also sent one of my home made circle jig for the router. I built the Sub over at my next door neighbors as he has everything! He only helped me glue it up, I did everything else. He only had 2 36 inch clamps so, I used them and ratchet straps for clamps. They worked real well!

    Bill
