    i'm thinking of designing a sub after seeing some real sweet ones here
    what do you think is the best subwoofer there is, component that is
    has anyone put auto subs inside a box to make one good home sub? i've seen pictures of the new JL Audio W7 sub and i'm quite impressed, pretty impressed by its specs as well

    and

    only thing is i have no clue how to mount it but it sure would look good after it is mounted
    how bought rockford fosgate subwoofers?

    Since your title doesn't key in on the fact that you want to "build your own" and since we've had several threads quite recently asking what is the "best sub" a lot of folks probably just skipped over what looked like another "poll" of opinions about the best "ready made" sub... and even if they recognize what you are really asking about, folks in this section tend to concentrate on "store bought" components.
    Ask an Admin (via e-mail -- they may not see it here) to move your thread to the DIY (do-it-yourself) section, and I'll bet you will get a LOT of helpful responses.
    Good luck -

    Tommy -- While it is helpful to see a picture of what we are talking about, the recommended method is to briefly describe the picture in words in the post and provide a URL link to the picture so the reader can then open the picture in another window if desired, rather than actually insert the picture (force its display with the IMG command) in the post, which as noted by the other poster, can really slow down loading the thread -- especially when there are a lot of big pictures.

    Tommy,I didn't mean to come off that way,I'll take all the pics you can throw my way [​IMG]. I'll throw one in once in a while if I need to. Then again,my cable modem averages 2000 kbps. I just remember what a joy it was to dial-up...
