    I finally finished my 122L sealed Tempest. I had someone else cutting the MDF panels for me in someone else's woodshop, which resulted in considerable delay. Got the panels a week ago and put the cabinet together last weekend and have been priming, sanding and painting with Rustoleum hamered black finish. Put four inch "table" legs on the bottom that I spray painted chrome. My wife loves the look. Hopefully I'll get some pictures of the finished product up.

    I got to say this thing is huge. I cannot even imagine putting one of the bigger ported alignments in my room (19 x 19 with 8.5' ceiling). And the amount of bass it puts out? As our New York friends might say forgetaboutit. I put on the Ice Ring scene from Titan A.E. and promptly was scared that something was going to break in my room! [​IMG] I have one of my computers hooked up to to my system as well through an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 and listening to Tommy James and the Shondells Crimson and Clover and Draggin the Line was shaking room. Wow!

    Next step: BFD!

    Great job Jonathan! I especially like the feet! Enjoy your new toy. Oh, and what project is next? You do know you can't stop with just one, right? [​IMG]

    Unfortunately my next project will not be Hi-Fi or HT oriented, but involve continuing to replace the old siding on my house (its the kind that starts to crumble after 10 years or so). I've gotten two walls done and now that the weather is better, I'll be working on the back wall next, including replacing three windows and a sliding glass door. [​IMG]

    Just a little heads up, you might want to move it away from that computer. Magnetic fields, especially strong magnetic fields from large subs do not bode well with computer HD's or much else inside that case.

    Hello, all. I am thinking to build a sub with EZSUB14, Shiva 12" and a SUB100 Amp as suggested by CSS website. What else parts do I need to complete this project? The cost for the 3 items above is about Can$495. Is it worth it?
    Note: I have no experience in building any speakers.
    TIA
