    I have an Infinity BU2 sub that I have never been happy with. I was thinking about rebuilding the sub to make it a front firing sub instead of a down firing sub. What is the best way to findout the specs on the driver that is in the enclosure? Can anyone respond on the pros and cons on a down firing sub as compared to a front firing sub? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Basically there aren't any pros and cons, there really isn't a difference in sound between a downfiring and front firing sub. With the possible exception of a down firing sub that doesn't provide long enough legs.

    Daniel,

    This would be a futile project. If you aren’t happy with the sub now, moving the driver to a different panel in the enclosure won’t make you happy with it.

    If you’re serious about this it would require replacing the current driver with a better-performing one. And perhaps getting a more powerful amp.

    You didn't say why you're unhappy with the sub. Perhaps it only needs some equalization.

    Regards,

    Wayne,

    I am unhappy with the sub because I find it to be a little boomy. I have an Axiom EP125 sub that to me is more accurate. Based on your comment I probably will try and sell the sub and get some money out of it.
