    Hey guys, this weekend I think that I am going to make 2 sonotubes for tempests. I have not bought the tempests yet and was thinking of buying twin 1803's, but realized that I would rather use a 15'' woofer that didnt need an eq. I want to make a 20'' diameter tube that is 72'' high and use an 8'' port tuned to atleast 18hz. How long should the port be?

    Ack...made a mistake, sorry...

    I'd be interested in your comments on this setup, I've been thinking of making a more robust sub than my current sealed tempest setup...

    I have run a twin Tempest system before. It provided for stunning quantity and quality of bass. At that time I had two tempests, each in ~6.5 cubic feet tuned to 18Hz with dual 3 inch aeroports. The amplifier for the setup was a Mackie FR-1400.

    Running my signal generator into the amplifier input, I could actually make people ill with full output at 16-20Hz. In my room I could never measure this well since so many things rattled and made noise, LAUD measurements were useless.

    What do I run now? One of the tempest boxes. I'll get the other one in the system, but since we've moved my wife has been enjoying looking at only one box. ;-)
