I finally got the green light from the spouse to get a sub. I have decided to get a Stryke AV12 MKII in a sealed one cu foot box. with a Rhythmic plate amp. Ya I know bright idea now that I missed the pre order on the AV12 MKII! The big limitation is $$$ right now. Between xmas and trying to sell my house funds are tight. I’m looking at doing this piece meal, building a box, buying the driver, and then the amp. My question is what is the best first step? I contacted a local cabinetmaker that can build the box. Assuming I can supply him with the cut out dimensions of the driver and the amp is this the way to go?
