    I started my Shiva box subs today. I am using the vented EBS alignment from Adire's web site. I started at about four o'clock and spent the rest of the day cutting out all of the 4" brace holes, 36 in all. I am going to cut the driver and vent holes tomorrow.
    The reason I chose dual boxes, instead of one big sonotube, is because I want to use them as stands for my nOrh 6.5s. Also I want to cover them with a nice rich looking wood veneer.
    Currently I am planning on cutting some simple legs from hardwood. Does anyone have any good ideas about where to buy some attractive wood legs for a box sub?

    Instead of legs, have you thought about going with spikes? Parts Express has some nice looking spikes #240-715 that I am probably gonna use.

    Thanks for the link Pete. They don't have the quite what I'm looking for. I don't imagine that anyone will. I expect to have to build my own unless I see something that is just perfect.

    I thought about spikes, but since I have a wood floor, I want some wooden legs that are flat on the bottom. That way I can apply some felt and be able to slide these heavy beasts around.
    I would consider some very cool looking heavy duty casters, but I doubt I can find any that would look right with the Rosewood veneer that I am planning on using.

    Why not just put the casters on the bottom of the sub but make the sides long enough to cover them? That way it still looks like a solid box but you can still roll it around for positioning and they are hidden from view.

    Parker,
    My subs are down firing. Do you think that the skirts could affect their performance?
