It took 8 Wal-Mart pillows to stuff a 12.5 cubic foot box for me. Guessing 6 would get you there but you don't know until you put them in there. It is certainly a lot easier to work with pillows than loose poly. Turns out to be a lot cheaper too. smile.gif

The 24's should dig mega low, especially after applying an infrasonic shelf boost. Probably 9-13hz I'd guess, and if your lucky maybe some (reduced) action down to 3hz. biggrin.gif
Will you be taking measurements? (Perhaps previous-sub and after-sub? biggrin.gif)

Ok, I have ordered few pieces MDF, it should arriving tomorrow, here are few doubts need advises before start the build:

1) what's the best way to draw a huge circle woofer cutout line? (I'll be using what I have already - a jigsaw, instead of plunge router)
2) if flush mount the driver, would it very difficult to take out the driver later?

Sorry for my noob questions

Find the center point of where the woofer cutout will be and mark it on your panel. Then take a ruler or straightedge or board and attach one end of it with a nail or screw exactly on your center mark. Next, attach a pencil to the opposite end of your ruler (or board or whatever) at the half diameter measurement and carefully turn the whole thing in a circle while drawing your mark.

As far as flush mounting, you'll need a router for that unless you're planning to cut different sized holes on two or more baffle panels and then glue them all up together. With the heavy driver, it won't be easy taking it out again later but if you're careful, you can do it.
When you set it in the first time, put some large zip-ties through a couple of opposing mounting holes to use as "handles". This will help you set the driver down into the baffle without you losing a finger. wink.gif

Thanks! I understand the first half of your guide, but how to attach a pencil to ruler (or board or whatever)?

Whatever way you can that ensures the pencil stays squarely attached to the board. If you used a thin and narrow board or a ruler, you could drill a very small hole at the end where the pencil tip would go through. Just make the hole only big enough for the pencil tip so it can't move around.

Great idea! I'm going to give it a try wink.gif

This looks like awesome build. I cannot wait to see the final results. What are you using to power both of the subs?

WereWolf,
Why so little power?

I send over 2000w per my 21's and they handle it with ease
I also send 1250w per si18's and they handle that no problem.
I would think the 24's can handle a lot more?
Just saying

Looking forward to see the progress and hearing your impressions!

My Build Thread
Equipment Speakers:
3x 1099's for LCR duty
4x Fusion 8's for surround duty
8x subs: 4x FTW21's and 4x SI18's

I was worried they'd be power hungry given the size so I reached out to Nick for direction. He only recommends 1,500 watts. Anything more could void the warranty.

Nah he's just getting started.biggrin.gif I used to have a 7.4 system consisting of 6 Cerwin Vega CLS 215 speakers. smile.gif

Pics of old setup on page 2 of my this thread. Six Cls 215 speakers along with monster CV dual 10'' center. Very good speakers with clean highs and smooth, low bass.
