I haven't had much luck tracking the stuff down. Some of the hardware stores sell it but the price skyrockets beyond 12" diameter.

Has anyone in my area found a good deal?

Is 50$ for a 16"x6ft tube reasonable?

Thanks in advance.

a 16" concrete form is used for some pretty heavy construction, not really the kind of thing a home depot type customer is going to need. perhaps a concrete construction supply company could be worth checking into.

Listen. It's All Good.

Piercy's in my area has 18"x6ft for 50 bucks. I'm not sure if that's a reasonable price though because i can't find it that size anywhere else.
I've been browsing the online yellow pages and i'm not quite sure what i should be looking for?
Concrete supplies, Concrete forming, building supplies, building materials, construction materials?
Are there any internationally known construction places i should keep an eye out for?

Check out industrial suppliers / wholesalers. I bought an 18" and 14" full length a couple years ago and it was $ 94 tax in. I think they were around 12-13 feet each length.

Thanks for the suggestions. I found a 16"x8' tube for 40$ from a local farmer. Edge thickness is 3/8 inch.

I lost the deal on the 16" tube so i'm still looking. I've called quite a few Construction supply places, concrete places, and Home hardware type places with no luck.

What do you mean by industrial suppliers/wholesalers? Can you give an example company?

I'm debating wether to buy the 18" 6ft tube for 50$ or buy the largest "12 inch" tube i can find for less than 20$ and design a larger endplate to hold the wider part of the 12" driver.
