I've been reading through the threads on this forum for the past few months after I initailly got interested in building my own sub. My woodworking skills are novice at best (I've built acoustical frames and panels, but that's about the extent of it).
Based on my room and future goals, I decided on a 15 inch driver. BTW, I'm currently running a BIC PL-200 12".
So, here's what I've gotten together so far.
1) Flatpack from Erich
2) Dayton Ultimax 15
3) Bash 500
4) Titebond III for assembly
5) Drywall compound for edge sealing
I haven't decided on how I'm going to mount the driver. T-nuts and the like seem a bit complicated as easy to screw up. Spax screws (what some others have recommended) seem like a good bet, but I would be limited on driver removal and such. I don't really know if this would be a problem or not.
Also, for paint I think I'm decided on Duratex. I'm not interested in a gloss finish at all, and I'd like something that would be durable and relatively easy to apply. I think I could get away with one of the trial sizes to paint my entire box.
I think I would need around 3.0 cu ft of polyfill or something similar. The stuff on PE seems really expensive for what it is. Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative?
Finally, thanks for all of the information that everyone has posted on this forum.
