With what you could get for your subs you could Build a serious sub system going DIY. Or add on to what you have.
Thanks. Yes, i believe i could sell my subs, and still get money over, after such a upgrade.

With what you know today, would you change anything if you built them again? Another driver? Different size cab?

Let me know if you ever need any help.
Yes, i built many subs in my earlier days for car use, so i have done DIY, but since getting the first SVS for HT use, i have let my tools rest, so to speak.

Flat-packs also seemed like a "easy" solution, but when adding shipping and such all the way to Norway, it all ads up.

With free sono-tubes..... that's another story....
