my guess would be that it's not real
I agree that I might not have everything correct and I will double check everything and have another go.

measure again with the mains in play
Hopefully I will get some time tomorrow to run some sweeps as I am curious to see this as well

Re: Sonosub Build, wife is going to be really happy!

I wouldn't entertain the notion of buying any EQ unit with that respectably flat response - you are good to go! You may want to double check your spl meter calibration file regarding that large infrasonic peak.....my guess would be that it's not real.

Also, for your own sake, measure again with the mains in play. Having the sub flat on its own is great, but now you need to make sure the phase between mains and the sub is ok around the crossover.

I found this thread that Ricci started about LFE in movies that I have been trying

So far no knock on the door from the neighbors

Finally quit listening long enough to run REW.
I assume you were listening to material with 11-12Hz content. That's an amazing room-gain peak down there and the rest is oh so smooth. Great job.

Re: Sonosub Build, wife is going to be really happy!

Finally quit listening long enough to run REW. This is my first attempt at REW so hopefully this looks right. Room size is ~ 12x18 but it feeds into a kitchen/eating area and my old Bic sub just couldn't fill it, but I certainly don't have that issue any more

I do have a BFD that I plan on goofing around with but from my limited understanding I don't think it looks to bad considering I have no treatments or EQ, I took multiple readings thought the room and they were all very similar but the one posted is from the main listing position...
Thanks for everyone's comments and help, this project has exceeded my expectations which says alot.

Wow... looks great! Thank you very much for keeping us updated with pics and the process. This is definitely invaluable to other members.
Oh, trust me I know how it goes with friends enjoying your builds and trying to convince you to "help" them get one going as well (meaning build them one while they watch, lol).

Thanks,
Scott

I do have a lesson learned that I would like to pass along. Do NOT use Loctite Power Grab adhesive.
Went back to the store and got some Liquid Nails like I should have in the first place and re-glued the whole thing and this time it stuck.
Thank you! Seriously, you likely saved my butt as I bought that stuff too and I was hesitant which product to use as I have no experience using anything related to that stuff-will return and get Liquid Nails too.

Fantastic job, It must sound fantastic...........
You know it does sound good...to me. I was worried building this thing that was going to totally overwhelm my current system but it seems to blend well. I know I have some EQing to do but I continue to be impressed.

I do have a lesson learned that I would like to pass along. Do NOT use Loctite Power Grab adhesive. I don't know, maybe I got 2 bad tubes but this stuff held worse than plain old caulk. When trying to assemble the top endcap my port came loose. Well worse but you get the idea...I let it set for 2 days before trying to install it and I made sure the release agent was removed from the tube and that the mating surfaces were good. That night I did a little test and glued up 2 small pieces of wood and let it sit for about 12 hrs and what I feared happened. I pulled it apart with my hands

Out of curiosity, what speakers are you using? You'll want to make sure your 80-250hz range can keep up with your subwoofer, otherwise things will lose a little punch at high volumes.
They are Radient brand speakers, basically my first step from a HTiB. Although they were relatively inexpensive I am surprised they keep up as well as they do. Currently I am using my old sub (Bic H100) to try and fill that gap but your right Steve in that I need to get REW going to see what is really going on.

Here is a pic of my setup along with my little helper
