In an effort to improve the low end output of my HT system I began researching commercially available subs. None of the offerings attracted my attention enough to warrant the price of admission. I then stumbled on to several THT build threads and was struck by the praise given to the design. I popped over to the Bill Fitzmaurce site and ordered the plans for a Tuba HT. I have a spare channel of a QSC GX3 amp that I intend to power the Tuba.
I have a 2 channel system in the living room consisting of Polk LSI9's and 2 Klips sub 12's. but often get relegated to the HT (basement system) to enjoy music by my wife/kids. The THT will be placed in the basement HT system which is ~25% music 75% movies. I was drawn in by the reviews stating the THT performs exceptionally well with both music and movies.
CURRENT HT SYSTEM
SUBS: 2 PSW505's (will be shifted once the THT is complete)
MAINS: Polk RTI A9's
CENTER: Polk CSI A6
SURROUNDS: Polk FXI A6
REAR: Bose 191 inwalls
Dayton Audio RS S390-HF 15"
10/32 mounting kit

Speaker mounting terminal
Panels 1,2,and 3 are in place and I am currently waiting for the driver to be delivered (should be this week) so I can move to panel 4. This is my first DIY speaker build and so far no hiccups. (yet) I am building the THT with 24" wide panels. PICS coming soon.
I find the instructions a bit cryptic
but after a few passes they can be deciphered.
