    I have a SVS 20-39CS along with the Samson S700 amp, and I will be buliding a DIY 16" sonosub to go on the other channel of the samson. Would it matter if I make one with a little bigger volume than my svs? Does it really matter?

    Thanks

    Steve,

    Why not build two subs and sell the SVS to fund the project?

    Brian has a good point. The hard part is getting the measurements for the cuts right. The easy part is assembling after the parts are cut. Building two at the same time is marginally more effort than building one. And selling the SVS will likely get you very close to enough cash to build two equivalent DIY units.

    Here's an idea, if you havn't already upgraded your sub, use the older SVS driver in the new 16" sonotube, that would be the best route to go.
