    Hey guys,..

    Been gone a while building the new home. Finally have the theater ready to finish up, and outfit with new gear. I built a couple Sonos last year with Shiva drivers. Turned out to be a very interesting venture. What I want to use this time, is a pair of Tempest drivers. Question is,..in a nut shell, and I know results will vary depending on many factors, but,..to those of you all that have built a couple, or more of subs using the Tempest,..what have you found to be the best vented enclosure volume ect,..for theater usage, running about 350 watts a speaker.

    Thanks for any info,...GRCRY,...>>>--->

    Well I havent built Several, but i just finished mine in a ~214 liter enclosure (vented, tuned to 18hz). My ht setup is in a basement with a concrete floor. the dimensions are 22' x 21' x 7'

    This particular sub totally fills the basement and then some. I had windows on the first floor shaking (not to mention the floor boards)

    I suppose there might be 'better' setups, but boy is this pleny

    Kevin,

    I'm almost done building a dual Tempest sonosub. 480L tuned to 17hz with 6" ports. 28" x 53" tube. I will be doing final assembly tonight, but no amp yet. Dan W gave me the specs for this one and swears that I'll be VERY impressed for HT and music.
