    I have an old, but in good condition Polk Audio PSW120. It's got a 120w amp and an 8" driver. I would like to disassemble it and use the components to build a sonosub-style sub. Can anyone help me determine dimensions? Looking for a little more sound from the amp/driver combo. I can get the tube and mdf for free, so it's a low-buck project.

    I'd suggest saving the 8" woof, and spending some minor bucks on a 10" or 12" woof, and using that and the existing amp - save the polk box too...

    Recycling the amp isn't a good idea. Most of these pkg subs have built-in EQ specific to the driver and the box it comes in.

    Save up until you have enough to buy both a new amp and driver
