    Since my shiva sub isn't going to quite fit into the corner I intended it to, I was looking into rebuilding it into a slimmer/taller design. Also, I could use a place to put my DVD's in my new HT, so, why not combine the two!
    Here's my idea:

    Basically, it would be a downfiring sub with the amp mounted on the rear and about 7" of the front would be dedicated to shelving for DVDs. I have a Shiva Mark I and was planning on a sealed 88.5 liter box with a Fb of 34.5 Hz.
    Construction would be 3/4" MDF, braced with 1.5" dowels and covered with 1/4" plywood which then would be painted a satin black to match my little bar.
    Any thoughts/suggestions? I'm a still a little limited in woodworking skills, but a great deal more confident after building my HT. [​IMG]
    Oh... here's another question.. how tall are DVD shelves? What I mean is: How much height between shelves is ideal for DVD storage?

    My only concern would be rattling DVD cases.

    I've considered that, Dustin. The current enclosure I have now is made of 3/4" MDF and doesn't have a lot of vibration coming through the enclosure directly. Anything that vibrates around it is from the bass output itself. So I don't think it will be a problem. [​IMG]
    Maybe I should pose this question: Does anyone have a problem with rattling DVD racks near or on top of their subs? If so, was it the actual DVDs that were rattling?
