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

Be aware there is a transparent release film on the inside of the sonotube that glue won't stick to. You'll have it peel it off before you attempt to glue the end caps to the tube.

Mike, do all tubes have it?

I tried to pull off a little piece and it takes some paper with it no matter how careful I am. Do you take it off the whole tube or just the top? Will spray tack stick to it for the batting?

Depending on what brand of tube you have, with some just the film peels off, with others some paper comes off as well which is not a problem. On mine I peeled the whole tube.

Already done but thanks for the reminder

I went ahead with the whole tube and I had some paper come off with it as well but not enough to worry about

Throwing a question out here:

Lets say you find the in-room sweet spot for your sub. Is that the sweet spot no matter what sub you use? Assuming everything else is the same.

Did you guys experience this during your builds where I have 2 friends wanting me to help build them one?

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

After I had a little setback during the build that I will talk about a little later, I finally got Tubby finished up.
After wrestling tubby into position and a quick setup...all I can say is holly cow! This has exceeded all my expectations. Hopefully I will have some time in the next week or so to run some sweeps to get some readings.

Wired up


My attempt at integrating the port flare with a brace




Completed
