Link Ok now that I have my tempest up and running, (though the legs arn't attached and there isn't a finish yet), I have a few questions. In what order do I adjust the settings to tune the sub? placement, then volume, crossover, and phase? Next, I was wondering if I chose the wrong enclosure because the sub is able to produce very fast and accurate musical notes when I sorta wanted a sub that would knock the wind out of me. The bass is clean, easy on the ears and able to rumble the floor, but I don't get that "hit" feeling. I thought the Adire alignment would have both hit and audiophile bass but I guess I was wrong. I am beginning to think I should have chosen audiophile or boom box and not adire alignment so at least I'd have one advantage. My sub can play 20hz and below test tones but it sounds like a consistant wave pattern (I can see the driver move up and down as it vibrates). Is this supposed to happen with frequencies this low? In other words, it sounds a lot different than say 50hz or 100hz which is a smooth constant tone. This is my very first subwoofer and it just so happened to be a DIY. My parents told me it was like a movie theater and I agree. I do hear some distortion and occasional signal jumble during fast bass scenes but I think it's due to my 17ft unshielded interconnect. I will say this about the tempest: It gives accurate bass reproduction with very low note capabilities. It doesn't move the air around in the room but rather fills it with bass. Even when right next to the enclosure I heard no port air noise. I am very pleased with its total cost $400 and the performance.
