    Here is my 1st try at a diy sub. There is so much good info out here it really helped alot. I also got a lot of help from Pat at Blue Print drivers. This was made with 12" sonotube and a 10" BPD 1001. I used the old 75w plate amp from my old sub and was worried that it wouldnt be enough, but it is really loud. I dont have much to compare it with but I would say it sounds pretty good and is definately loud enough for me. It was a lot of fun.

    That looks likethe stuff I got from a fabric store. It works great as there is no seam, it is like a sock that stretches around the whole tube and the endcaps seal it, correct? Forgot what they call it though.

    Nice job.I believe the fabric you are talking about is Ribbing material.I used on my Sonosub and it looks great.It stretched over the 24 inch diameter tube with no problem.

    I found the fabric at a fabric store down the road, I had looked around and couldnt find anything, but a lady there asked me what it was for and when I told her it was for a speaker she new exactly where to go and showed me this. It was a little stretchy and I did have to sew it together so there is a seam in the back.
