    Has anyone out there tried out BPD 1201's in transmission lines? Would this be a suitable woofer for that type of configuration?

    To tune low the line length gets pretty long.
    Here's a Tempest TL that's tuned to ~28 hz. The line length is ~122".

    It stood about 78" tall once the base assembly was attached!
    The wife was NOT impressed.

    Damn so much for that idea! I bet that thing sounded great though.

    I just wish I had more experience/test equipment back then. It sounded good, but not sure if the size/effort were worth it. It was an interesting learning curve, tho.
    Of course it makes your wife a lot easier to deal with when you tell her the next one is not going to be that big.
    Of course I lied! [​IMG]
