I am finally starting this build after months of talking about it. I thought it was a good time to start since the taper I hired will be in the basement for 9 days completing the whole basement.

I purchased all the parts shown below from a fellow AVSer @mikela aka Mike. It was a fantastic transaction and what a great guy and what an amazing HT he has.


All original parts

One of 6 woofers




Only thing I had to purchase was the 4” flared ports which I got from parts express.

Do you plan on building the original enclosure?

I am a complete newbie on building speakers and I will need as much guidance as possible.

I have chosen to use 3/4” plywood instead of MDF because of prices have gone crazy up here in the Toronto area (Canada if you didn’t know).

If size yes but not sure what you mean by enclosures

It seems I was writing my post as you were writing your second post. This pic of the enclosure in your second post is a pic of the original design.

Excuse my ignorance I’ve been designing a lot of boxes lately for guys I’ll have to look at my notes when I get a chance but a box I came up with had the the first port resonance above 500hz from what I remember. I’ll have to look... having two drivers in one box helps get the first port resonance higher than one driver per box depending on what tune is wanted for the application I think we were looking at around 20-30hz tune.
