Shiva-X 200L (~7 ft^3) build thread

Well, all the parts are in place for the build finally, so I thought I'd start a build thread:

First up is the design.....let me know if you see any glaring mistakes or problems:




Next up, we have the free 7' piece of 5.75" PVC....nothing beats FREE!




And rounding out the "materials" portion we have the free sheets of 3 x 4 x 0.75" MDF!




Cutting starts this weekend, at the latest.

Thanks to Mike P. here, Kevin @ DIYC, and Bob @ CSS for all their help. These guys really go above and beyond for noobs like me.

Nice. Can't wait to see how you create the port flare.

First major snag. Ha ha, nothing big, but could have affected everything had I started cutting. The 18" sonotube got wrecked. Its not useable so we have now switched everything to the 16".

Not terrible, but could have sucked big time!

16" sono is in my possession to start working on tonight. Probably cut at least the sono and the PVC port to size. For people who have never seen sono, even the 16" stuff is HUGE. Amazing. Not "Sonotube" brand....something called "Redi-pour". Its quite thick. 16" precise interior diameter.

I will be watching the build. I have something similar planned out in my head. For the flare you should be able to heat up the end and push something round into it. A bowl might work or a bowling ball. If I get time tomorrow I will try it out and let you know how it goes.

Ok, here's the new dimensions/calculations for the 16" diameter build. Starting to cut in about 2 hours....if there's ANY glaring mistakes, can you please let me know before I cut? LOL!

That's exactly what my plumber friend suggested. I originally planned to do an MDF "ring" on the bottom of the port (internal end), and then just a simple roundover with the router on the endcap end.....we'll see though.

Unless I have made a mistake I get it closer to 6 feet instead of 5?

The calculations was just my cutting numbers, not the final sub length. So far, its just the length for the port and sonotube itself....
