    I just finished my first DIY project, well almost. It needs one more coat of paint. I'll do that when I'm done playing [​IMG] I used the 85l adire alignment with a dayton 12" DVC. I was suprised at the performance. I even screwed up a couple things when hurrying to glue it together. Anyway now that I have finished with that one I'm itching for a new project. I would like to build a set of 3-way towers. I will probably build the dayton br-1 kit first. Just to get more familiar with crossover design etc.
    I have a couple of questions for you guru's out there. I was thinking along the lines of the veritas at speakerbuilder.net I was wondering about using a side mounted passive radiator. I can't seem to figure out the mass needed for pr's. I tried when first modeling my sub and I ended up with way too much mass for the pr. I followed the formula at diysubwoofers.org. I even had a my calculations checked by someone else. Is it kind of a trial and error type thing? What I want is a TMW/TMWW that will play down to about 25hz. Any help and or advice is appreciated.
    I do have pics of the sub just don't know how to post em. I just posted them so scroll down.

    when you post it, click on the IMG button and type in the link to the image, you will need to host them on a website to link them...

    ie: h**p://www.yourisp.com/~yourlogin/hometheatre.jpg

    No feedback for a newbie, I know you guys have been looking.[​IMG] No suggestions on the towers either? I have to say I'm a little disappointed.[​IMG]

    Well, for a start, all of your links to the pictures do not work with the Firefox browser. I had to launch MS Internet Explorer to see the pics.

    I only saw three pictures of the sub, no pictures of the towers? Do you have a link to the pictures of the towers?

    Thanks for the compliments. I just did a quick search for pic hosting I didn't realize some browsers couldn't view them.:b
    I haven't made the towers yet.That is the next project,well I will probably do a monitor kit first as I have not made crossovers before.

    I upgraded my account for pic hosting. So they are viewable again.
