I've never worried about Bondo on the seams. I just use a roller and paint the whole thing with a 50/50 mix of water and wood glue then sand smooth. Maybe hit the edges twice. I've actually used...

I might have a spare one of those if needed. I can't imagine what UPS does to inflict that much damage to those.

The MDF in your country must be pretty bad, even worse than what Home Depot or Lowes sell around here.

But the newer CARB 2 compliant refined MDF is much better that anything you're talking...

Yours was shipped quite a long distance from Ohio to Ireland, so maybe something got damaged along the way. I can get you another woofer.

They haven't changed their wholesale price, so I doubt that will go much lower. I use the price difference between wholesale and retail to cover as much of the "free shipping" and designer fees as I...

Don't over spray the glue and get it on the outside!! I've always just used the wood glue to stick the stuff to the inside walls.

I'd say 1099's or 1299's up front, Volt-8's or Volt-10's for everything else, including Atmos.

Yes, they are completely different crossover parts and the layout would be different. If not, that would certainly push me to get boards made up and included in the kit.

So going by the programs that figure port velocity, would a 6" Precision Port work okay with a RS-18 in a 6.5cuft enclosure? Are the programs figuring in the 'allowance for masking content'?

Yes, I understand X-max would come into play, not just the size of the cone. I was mostly looking at 18's like the Dayton RS, Ultimax, and the cheaper SI-18 because those are a little closer to the...

Subwoofer Size Versus Port Size and Chuffing

I know there are programs out there that will figure port velocity and whether you can have chuffing issues on your subwoofer with certain port sizes, but has anyone actually tested the numbers?

With the 893, 1099, and now 1299, the demand will get divided out over more speakers, so I'm guessing they will stay in stock much much longer like the 893 does. There probably won't be a need for...

The Magnum-12 would be 99db when two are used. But it would be a 4ohm speaker, and a lot more expensive. If you want that type of speaker, the dual woofer Maximus-12 would work.
