    I am in the process of building my first sub (Shiva EBS 142L)and I am wondering if anyone who has build the same sub or another using the Shiva has attached a plate to the legs of the sub. Bascially, what SVS does with some of their boxed subs. Would this have any effect on the performance of the sub? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    P.S. The box is built and ready for painting. I am waiting on the Shiva, the port tube and the PE amp plate. Hope it comes soon!

    You might want to check this out. One of our members her built a PB1 "clone" and attached such a plate at the bottom of the sub cabinet.

    Hello,
    I have a plate on the bottom of my 142L Shiva Tube. It is still unfinished, but functional.

    Pictures on the website.

    I already did a "PB1" style 214L Tempest and it worked out really well. The base plate was made of 3/4 MDF and this helps in moving my 100lb-plus sub around.[​IMG] Just follow Adire's recommendations on floor clearance and you'll be alright.
