I have been following this thread closely. I am attempting to build a dual opposed sub using the CS1214s with a 16 inch diameter sonotube. I do move at a slow pace, but once I get going, I will post pictures.
Dave In Green! A couple of suggestions. Watch Walmart for a sale on the CS1214's. I picked up 3 in mid February for less than $33 each. My only concern is the Walmart website shows that they don't have many left. Who knows, that could certainly change.
As far as the Sonotube goes, I was not impressed with the quickcrete tubes at Lowes or Home Depot. They were pretty flimsy. Menards did actually have Sonotubes in stock. These tubes were heavier than the tubes at Lowes and Home Depot, but I would have to purchase the entire tube. I think the tube was either 12 or 16 ft long.
Try contacting a local concrete supply store. I visited a local concrete supplier here in Cincinnati, and they had endless supplies of Sonotubes in various diameters. When I told them what I was trying to build, the sales guy let me visit the warehouse and pick a "scrap" piece. I selected a 4 ft piece of 16 inch sonotube. He gave it to me for free, just asked for me to stop by and show him a picture of the finished product.
Good luck with your project!
