    After asking some questions, I've been convinced to begin a new search for a sonotube...the one I had lined up won't be large enough for my Tempest. I'm looking for a modest sonotube, just enough to be appropriate for the Tempest...nothing HUGE. So I guess I'm looking for something around a 20" diameter, possibly 3.5 feet to 4 feet in height?
    If anybody in the Detroit or surrounding area (I'm in Ann Arbor) has some leftover, or knows where I can go to get some for a cheap price, please let me know.
    The student workshop opens next week, so hopefully I can get started soon.....I'd like to have it done so I can watch Star Wars Ep. II, Lord of the Rings and whatnot with my new Paradigm Monitor 9's. [​IMG] Thanks in advance...

    Home depot or building supply stores. Act fast though, as the building season is slowing down. How's the monitor 9's sounding?

    They be sounding wonderful. [​IMG] Although, a little more bass wouldn't hurt....^_^
    They're also still set up in the living room, I have to figure out the configuration in my bedroom before I move everything, as I don't want to move all that stuff more than once. (I didn't shell out 1.5K for equipment that's not even used more than an hour a day...it's gonna be hooked up to my computer, through my optical output so I can do everything in blissful 4.1 surround sound)
    As for the sonotube, I'll go ask around the stores, but I had the idea of bugging a construction worker if I can find one, since there's a ton of construction going on around the Univ's campus.

    On the same note here, I was wondering if anyone in the Tampa Bay area knew of any local suppliers of Sonotube. The folks at Home Depot didn't know what I was talking about.

    Bryan,

    There's quite a few people from the Tampa area over on HTT. You could ask over there in the DIY forum.
