    Where's the sock, it's naked :b

    Looks good. What are you powering it with? Also what grille did you use and how is it mounted?

    I see you have an SVS in background as well. Which model and how does the Dayton compare?

    I'm powering it with a mcm 250 plate amp.The grille I picked up at a surplus store. I routered out a 1/2" buy 1/4' deep slot around so the grille would sit almost flush with the top. There's 4 black drywall screws that go through the grill and through the port flare to secure it good.It's actually my brother's svs"20-39CS" with the new driver. We tested it at his house with his Samson S-700 amp.

    We both thought it was equal with the SVS.And the 2 of them together were Awsome!!!!

    Rick, just curious, but how did you attach the short legs between the bottom endcap and the bottom bass plate?

    There's 3, 1 1/4" dowels centered evenly 2 1/4" long.Just a

    2 1/2" screw through the double mdf and 1 1/2" screw from the bottom up.It's good and steady.

    Very nice to hear a DIY compares to that driver in a sonotube. I can't wait to start work on my tempest enlosure.

    Nice work, be sure to show some pics when it's finished.
