    Here are a few pics of my new dual shiva sonosub in progress. I am just learning how to make webpage, thanks to Rich Kraus. I have figured out a way to link to the pics. So here you go. A few of the pics I compressed too much but I think you will get the idea.
    Here are the end caps and base plate. I don't know if you can tell but the baseplate and inside each end cap have 1+1/8" MDF. The bottom end cap also has a layer of 3/4" along with the 1+1/8" making the total bottom cap 2+5/8" thick!

    Next up are a couple shot of the top driver in place.

    And a shot of the sub assembled but not glued. I still have to paint the end caps and base. I also have to mount the input terminal cup.

    Looking good, Brian!
    Did you flush mount the drivers for aesthetics? I ask because it's a major pain to get those drivers out (due to weight) later if you have to take it out to reseal it or do something else requiring access to the driver/insides. Plus once you paint it, prying the drivers out leaves ugly marks in the paint.

    Thanks.
    Yes, I did it for aesthetics. I personally don't like the look of a non-flush mounted driver (just the perfectionist in me [​IMG]). I don't anticipate having to remove the driver once in place. If I do however I'll just lay it on it's side and take it out that way. Should be very little if any problem to do so.
