Hello everyone,

I've been lurking around the forum the last few months, learning and gathering ideas etc..
I've done plenty of mobile audio in the past but this is my first real HT project. And I finally bit the bullet and upgraded from HTIB "stuff". It's a 3.5 cube box (subtracting bracing, driver volume and port volume) with a Dayton RS315 HF/BASH500 combo. Now with the pics... let me know what you guys think biggrin.gif

Overall I'm more than pleased with how it turned out... clean tight bass, very musical, blends well with the rest of my system but more than enough HT omph in our living room. My wife and I watched Avengers and Transformers 3 yesterday on blu-ray and we were more than impressed for a single 12" My wife said it sounded like the the ceiling might cave in during the final battle scene in Transformers tongue.gif

I know its "tiny" in comparison to many builds here...but its around a 100 pounds or so loaded... (3/4 MDF...double front baffled with 1/4 oak ply over to make it pretty...)

--Just to show what its paired up with...
60" Sharp LED (831 series) ...birthday present from the wife..biggrin.gif
Denon AVR 591, Sony Bluray player, HTD in walls (3) 8" 2 way for the mains, (2) 5 1/4 2 way for the surrounds... (may add front heights at some point biggrin.gif) its time to build an entertainment center to match the sub....per wife's request... though the crappy ikea coffee table is doing a damn good job considering...

Interesting. I have the same set up but in a sealed enclosure. It sounds very good musically, but definitely is lacking in the HT department. I think a ported design would help out a lot. Do you have any build pictures or perhaps measurements/plans? I have a couple sheets of 3/4" MDF out in my shop and might give it a try.
