subwoofer building for a beginner

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First, I am a beginner so please excuse any dunce cap wearing, appears to be drooling general dumbness. I saw the Dayton Ultimax front page thread and it got me thinking which also raised some questions. Let me explain what I was thinking about doing and I would appreciate it if you more experienced members would point out what I have wrong or, by luck, right. Can I take a subwoofer driver, install it in a pre-made box that is readily available on the internets, solder the driver to the binding posts, connect a pro amp like a Crown to my Onkyo receiver via the LFE output and hook the sub up to the amp via speaker wire? The receiver would set the low pass filter by Audyssey calibration and everything would be set to go... right? I appreciate your time and any feedback.

I realized after I posted that I put this in the wrong place but couldn't figure out how to move it so I created a new thread there. Sorry.
