Being a student here, I have very little time to find the sonotube I want...hopefully I'll find something over break or the summer. But in the meantime, I've had a PE 250W amp and Adire Tempest sitting in my closet for months now, getting no use. So I was wondering how much it would cost for the MDF, screws, glue and terminal cap (did I miss anything?) for a standard box, just to use for now. I say that it's temporary, because the sonotube would take up less space, and I like that look more. I'm sure that I can find the directions online, and that the construction shouldn't be that difficult. Lastly, how much time would a very basic box take to construct? Just a day or two? Thanks for your help...I'm really sick of not feeling that down-low "oomph"...my Paradigm Monitor 9s are pretty well broken in now, and the bass is great, but it's still not enough.
