Exactly. The HS 24 doesn't need to move very far at all to produce a lot of output. That means the driver is in the "sweet spot" of the BL curve, Le curve, Kms/Cms curve, etc, while still shoving out lots of output. But the neat thing is that the woofer is capable of over 4.5" of total cone travel it puts how dominating the woofers is capable of into perspective.

After saw Sibuna/Adam's build, I'm also copy his idea & start re-building my dual 15 cf box as well, don't have CNC machine for the perfect cut, only with basic tools like jigsaw, circulaw saw, plunge router...etc, so the progress is slow but everything seems coming along quite well so far

Looks great, man! I'd guess the bracing has taken a lot of time to get it as nice as you have without a CNC. Can't wait to see the finished products!

Lookin really good.

And as Nick said the driver does not have to move much to produce silly bass. It however does really move when you want it to

Now you have me salivating again.

Hey, this is a great-looking build! Looks really solid. Very nice!

Thanks for your kind words, PassingInterest there are still lots of works to do to complete the build, by the way, credits goes to Gorilla83 aka Andrew & Sibuna aka Adam, I just copied their design

Can't wait to see your build starts

Yes, it has been used in below less than perfect conditions for about 9 months only used during weekends

-less than perfect DIY built 10 cubic feet sealed cabinet with MDF due to lack of wood working skills & tools (my first ever DIY sub)
-less than ideal enclosure volume (15 cubic feet is an ideal size)
-less than ideal power feeding?

Sweet! I hope you are pleased with the results.

Yes, you definitely get better with each build. Hopefully, you don't get upgrade-itis that we all have.

At least with MDF it is cheap enough that you can make bigger/better enclosures on cheap if desired.

Yup, I enjoy every moment of music & movies with it, I have a big smile every time I look at the woofers, I have bigger smile when I'm switch it on & drowned in bass heaven there is always a thought flashed in my mind, "how would the bass feels like if I going quad of it"

Couple words come to mind. Visceral, mind blowing, heart stopping, death....

Agreed. A 24" woofer is something to behold. It would be badass to have two, preferably four or more these visible in the room.
