Just reporting, with a heavy heart, that the Dayton DVC in my F20 "Macho Nacho" died in the line of duty a few months ago. I haven't yet had the heart to recover the corpse. I imagine the sealed enclosure still smells of death.

Had me or my drunken guests been paying attention, we might have heard the screams of agony before it was too late. My only solace is knowing that a heart transplant is possible, and Macho Nacho will, one day, live again to vibrate tools and paint cans onto the floor of my garage.

This is a sad story, Chad. I'm sorry for your loss.

I purchased 2 of the MFW-15's a few years ago from Eric, never used them at that time, and then moved to a new house with no theater least THIS time I'll be building my room to my liking, and have something that I'll be able to use at anytime, instead of hearing " Turn it down!" all the time.
Was going to do ported when I got them....the room will be ~ 1600cu, so a modest amp and 2 F-20's should be plenty.

I'm actually excited to get the room started so I can build the subs!

Thanks for sharing all this info lilmike, this is a LONG thread!

and the dead rise...

Just popping in to say I put together a pair of these over the weekend for a friend with the RS HiFis.
I thought about folding an old model I had, until I remembered about this one, and saw that it was about the same as what I had hacked out.

Thanks for doing all the grunt work mikey.

Two in a room with no dimension over 12ft. He seems happy.
I have already put thoughts into his head about what a B&C 21" horn could do, but I am going to use one of mine this time...

I am trying to deguise these as antique trunks.... So can I make them downfiring or fire toward the wall? If so how far does the mouth of the horn have to be from the wall or floor?
