    I finished my sealed 122L Tempest a few days ago and posted a few pics and tips on my website. Have a look if you're interested, it's under my 'Projects' section.

    Karl,

    That is a beautiful sub. Your woodworking skills really show. As for you thinking that you perhaps should of built the smaller Shiva, don't worry. Before long you may wish that you built something even bigger and more powerful.

    It seems that everyone wants even more bass and they never have enough. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Looks great! [​IMG]

    The solid edges turned out really nice! I like the contrast they add to the Birch.

    Thanks for the compliments! I've never really owned a sub before so I guess I'm a little shocked at the amount of bass it puts out. I'll probably get used to it eventually.. [​IMG]

    I'm afraid of structural damage to my house, so I tend to keep the bass in the not-so-aggressive range.

    BTW, nice job on the sub!

    OMG that is beautiful. i wish i had the time and the patiance to finish my sub like that, the best i think i will do is add some cornner molding on the sides and stain those while the sub it self will be flat or satin black.

    The feet on your sub look a bit crooked. (jk) I like the look, it almost blends into the floor and the proportions have a cabinet feel to it.

    I never had a subwoofer before I got dual adire alignment tempests with 290w each (Yes your PE 250w amp is actually 290w). Now I want a 155L 18hz tumult with 3 passive radiators with ~1500w.
