The grill was for my t-bone and, seriously, I have the grill over the port as I will use it in the garage/shop (say, where's the headbanger smiley sporting a mullet, like back in the day???) Oh, and some of us don't have the fancy shop, tools, know-how, and 'connections' like others So, you think the ski pole tubes are funny supporting the tube? See the -crutches- in one of the backgrounds? Yeah, I got'em at a garage sale for a $1 and they're likely gonna crutch my Maelstrom-X sonotube up.

OK Glen boy . . . . . that makes sense, go for it.
I think that driver models well for a 10 and the sound quality will probably surprise you.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, I have it together with endcaps inserted (not glued and finish painted) and it has respectable output for sure! Best thing is it's in a corner of a bedroom/office and it hardly takes any room, 'going vertical' to gain space, like the saying for improving home storage. Too bad I don't live in Denison anymore, I see you've built and contributed your share to HT

Re: 10" Aurasound Sonotube


LOL I can't resist this . . . .

I knew you lived in Denison, I had quite a wait before you left so I could move here from Wisconsin!

Just kidding, Your project placed in a corner should be a substantial improvement over any Ipod station and many other "New and ingenious" electronic audio products being advertised and marketed by mass producers that supposedly have "Remarkable Performance".
Let us see some pix of the project when they're ready. Give us a good hands on description of the Aurasound driver too.

Re: 10" Aurasound Sonotube


If I were to do it again, for really cheap, I'd use the same tube and amp, along with any good quality 10" driver that models in the given volume(perhaps ed 11kv.2, dayton hf or css?), but substitute wood dowels/ 2x2 for legs (easier) and use a cardboard tube from an office supply store for the port(s). Under $200 powered, with excellent sound and output. (I soooo want to do a side-by-side with a box store sub)
