I think I posted a full breakdown somewhere in this thread, but I believe the cost of materials for each sub was about ~650 including paint, grills, etc. It may be + or - about 75.00 depending on finish, wood used, options, etc.

I had considered it, but not having the ceiling match throughout the rooms would drive me crazy. My entire basement is open and there is no 'break' in the ceiling. The picture looks great to my eyes anyway for now.

About the build, I'll start a new thread.
I already promised the wife that this wasn't going to be an all consuming
build, so I am not going to be able to crank out the boxes as quick as I would like. I'm thinking I will be able to get the first 8 up and running within a few weeks to a month, but the next 8 might take a few more months. I'm also planning on building a riser when I get the second set up and running. Gotta maximize that tactical feel...
I can't think of anyone else that I know of, but you have been more in tune with this stuff than me. Shoot me a PM with details around payment if you can. IWifey and I will plan a trip to DC for the day when we come to pick them up.
Also - Build the first eight and get back to me.
Leave 4 subs in the nearfield area and you will all the tactile you will want.
