Re: Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)


Polished the heads of the brass screws

Painted today. the tubes are sitting on scrap wood the bottoms are painted but there sitting else where.


I'm gong to be fiber glassing these Cone shaped Diverter that I will place right above the port. I'm thinking it will help with turbulence instead of hitting the flat top plate the air will hit the cone and disperse more smoothly from the top assembly.

This is just the middle support base and the tip. I will be putting the cloth on tomorrow and fiber glassing this weekend.

Pretty creative stuff you've got going on. Never seen that paint grip sheet metal anywhere before: looks like a great substitute for your original idea.

I wanted to originally do carbon fiber then stainless, But don't have the money right now. but later I can cover the metal with it and it will be nice and smooth and round. Thank you for the comments.

did a little sanding.

These are the brass strips I'm going to be polishing for the top and bottom part of the tubes to add a little sophisticated touch LOL.
