So I'm a total noob on speaker building but am interested in building this sub and looking for some clarity and assistance. I do occasionally build stuff but i'm no master woodworker at all. I have tried to do as much research before posting but I feel like I could really use some help. Sorry for all the questions. I will try to write them up when I'm done with photos to help people like myself who feel lost completely among all the seeming experts helping other even more experienced experts.
So ALL the items I need to build the box are
a. 1x of the woofer here link]
b. 2x of the flared ports here: link
c. inuke 1000DSP
c. Terminals on the back to connect an amp to it. Not sure what to use as this is my first non-plug and play sub. Could someone post me a link/links to a product that would work well?
e. some filler/dampining material (whats best for this amp?)
f. 4x8' 3/4" sheet of MDF or plywood (does it matter which?). Plus a 2x4' sheet of 1/2" MDF/Plywood.
g. Wood glue
h. Speaker wire (what gauge?)
1. I see mention of double baffle vs single baffle, Does it matter? Why one versus the other?
2. Does the port tube go all the way through the cabinet or just to the inside back of the sub (sorry this feels like a dub question but no one shows the back of the speaker or the inside when everything is there except the driver).
3. What screws to use for the port tube and the driver?
4. I see lots of info about tuning the sub but I don't understand this. I have watched some videos about it but they seem like if your designing the sub not making a prebuilt design.
5. If I'm using this for home theater what do I want 15, 20, 31hz? I always assumed lower would be better but I don't really know when to choose one or the other. What is meant by "plugged"
6. I know you get smother distribution of bass with multiple of these but this going to blow my socks off after only having one 12" Klipsch right? I know people might want more but for most people I don't need more than 1 or maybe 2 right? I guess I'm just making sure as this is an 18" sub to me that seems insane.
1. Plunge router. I don't have one but need to get one as I have needed it in the past.
2. I have a chop saw and jig saw. I know a table saw would probably be preferred but I don't have one.
2. Screw driver
