well, i'm one step closer to getting this thing built now. changed my plans of building a sonotube enclosure, i'm too impatient and don't really have the time to put into it. i've had my sub sitting on my bar merely 10ft from my couch starring me down for about the past week or two and i can't take it anymore. i'm working too much right now to even go get the sonotube, let alone the mdf, cutting, painting, sanding ect, ect..... so, i went the lazier and faster route by means of the Dayton prebuilt box from PE. i'd like to have done the sono design for something a bit different, but i have no probs with a nice big cube sitting in the corner.
in any event, i think i will be quite happy with the finished product.
-3cuft dayton enclosure
-2 bags of acousta-stuf polyfill
-set of dayton chrome spiked feet

will keep you guys posted on progress, try to snap a couple pics of the install and of coarse give my impressions on the finished product. thanks a million to all you guys who've guided me thus far in terms of driver selection, enclosures, as well as invaluable knowledge. i wouldnt have made it this far without you and it's much appreciated!!!
