    35ltr cabinet tuned to 20hz hits very good for the size.
    Still really never got time to get it all broke in.
    After a small work out it got shipped out.

    Are you using boost in the amp? What's the max Mms on the PRs?
    Thanks!

    Cam,
    What are you asking? If you mean the LFE signal from your receiver/pre-pro, then the simple answer is: RCA cable. You simply run a cable to the plate amp, set internal crossover to its highest setting, adjust the level, and enjoy.

    Thanks Jim.....it looks as though it is a L/R set-up.
    Do you do as Muneeb suggested & use a splitter?
    My LFE is a single RCA plug.

    Al,

    Awesome looking subwoofer! It's nice to see something other than a black box, love the rounded corners.

    The cherry veneer gives me the urge to refinish my subwoofer in the shade it was originally supposed to be, over a year ago.Thanks!

    Cam,

    Any subwoofer having both L and R RCA inputs can certainly use just one of those. Using a splitter at the end of your receiver's/processor's LFE cable and plugging into the other input will also work. It just serves to increase the subwoofer's sensitivity to adjusting the subwoofer level at the receiver/processor, as the R and L inputs are combined by the amplifier.

    Allan,

    of MDF & covered with something?

    Allan,

    When you say "veneered", do you mean like 1/4" plywood,
    or is it a laminate, & if so, where did you get it?

    Thanks....
