    I finally completed my first DIY sub.. I posted a few days ago on the list regarding the progress.. I decided to laminate the box which turned out to be REAL easy.
    I will document the process soon.. I lost the text on my webpage.. I just wanted to throw the pics up and let you see the final pics. This sub woofer is HUGE!
    Thanks for lookin'

    it sure is! I think I am going to go crazy sitting here looking at this box in my living room. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. [​IMG]
    I hope the Tempest is as good as you guys say it is!
    Once I get accustomed to the Tempest.. I think I will go with the Tumult as soon as it is available. :b

    Man.. this thing sure broke in.. The Tempest sounds soooo much better than it did when I first installed it. Anyone know when the Tumult should come out? or is this the million dollar question? I may move the Tempest into my car if it comes out soon!

    my Tempest has it's own room.
     
  9. Julian,....I don't think even a million dollars will buy you the correct answer to that question.
    In all honesty, I have COMPLETELY given up on hoping the driver will come out on any of the given release dates. I am not saying that the driver will not rock and is not worth every penny....and I am not saying that there isn't good reason for the delay....but if a deadline is going to be posted, good business practice is to meet the deadline, or close to it...not 2 months and counting beyond the initial pre-order date. No, it isn't good to rush to meet a date at price of quality control. Just don't post a deline as such.
    Just my two cents [​IMG]....for what it is worth
