Re: Ported how low is too low?

I would of least staged a photo of that thing with someone sitting inside the tube with a propane torch to make it look like a jet engine haha.

She looks surprisingly happy about it.

Well she told me I can order a second driver if I want so she can't be too unhappy about it. Not sure where I would install a second one however.

2 would be best as I can spread the drivers out and even out the sound. But first I need to complete this one and see how it turns out.

The final design will be 26.5 cf tuned to 12HZ

I want 4 of them one for each corner. That is if I ever start my build in the basement. Or maybe 2 midway on the side walls and a pair in the front corners would be nice.

Two... maybe. Only the sickos here need more than 2x21"-ported (ie, most of us). I like your moxy though. Check my build thread for some tips. BTW, your wife needs to be sainted. We should all be so lucky. I know I'm not.

That's the same look I get when I'm about to do something even I know I shouldn't. Make sure to keep the pics coming. That's gonna be awesome.

Oh I will trust me on that. It should sound nice I went with a 10" port and model based on 1800 watts of power and the air speeds should be fine.

That is 50% over the 1200 watts the driver is set to handle and it should come out well sense I looked at worse case scenario.
