Personally I'd go with the slot port, it will have a lower air speed.

I did that. Still nothing. Amp powers up. Clip lights flick then only power light is on

Do you think the signal from the reciever is week.

Re: Building Custom Subwoofers!!!!


Just an idea, but is the sub out enabled in your avr? I had to turn mine on because the default was set to off when i got it.

If you have and iPod wire try to put a signal through the amp with that to just see if you get sound.
