This was a late 2016 build, a pair of FVX-15 kits...was a lot of fun.
Pics are of various stages of completion, the round one is sealed, and made of all maple ply ~16mm thickness. 1.5" baffle and cap made of Baltic Birch
The other obviously ported and made of all 18mm Baltic Birch.
Both subs are downfire (now), tucked away nicely into two corners of main-floor HT.
Couldn't decide, so I built one sealed and one ported, it may stay that way, as I like just the one sealed while playing music, and both on during movies.
Aesthetically, I may sand down the black ring on cap of sealed sub, should have stayed with the cherry stain on that... I'll fix that this spring.
The direct servo works just as advertised, subs start, and more importantly, stop on a dime, even the ported one.
Actually, I love tube amps..
I play guitars through them.
