    Well on friday I finally put together my tempest sonosub.. the project took quite a while, made a huge mess of my basement and was quite satisfying to build.. so needless to say I was quite excited to put in the last screw in.... hooked it up to my receiver, put in the Avia disc to do a quick test and ....... NOTHING... not a peep... absolutely nothing.. i have traced the problem to a faulty amp (PE 250Watt amp).. so Now i have to wait at least another week to get a replacement...oh well, at least i'll have time to sand down some ugly parts and possibly repaint some portions etc ... here's a quick pic of the semi-finished product... for reference's sake, the tv is a 35" and the sub behind it is 21" x 21" x 21" ...... the final dimenions of this my sonosub is 5'1" tall by 19" diameter.
    (I know there are quite a few imprefections in the final finish, but it's not done yet [​IMG])
    well it seems I cant link a pic from imagestation so here's the link to it:

    If you wire the voice coils out of phase, you won't get any output either...

    well the voice coils werent out of sync but even if by some chance they are, i also measured no voltage across any of the outputs...
    yes I do have more pics that I'll be posting very soon.. the flush mounting probably was one of the hardest things to make (try cutting a 3/4" piece of MDF at 37 degrees with a jigsaw and make it a straight line...).. not to mention the sealing which i've still yet to test but should be pretty leak-proof w/ all that silicone.. ok let me go sort through the pics.. maybe i'll post them very soon [​IMG]
