Great look, how about your review!
I wonder if the dispersal cone changes the tuning for better or worse?
I may just follow in suit if you think this design was good, why the particular driver choice? Brand, price or research?

Re: Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)

These are my first Sonotube subs ever. I've done ported, vented, and sealed boxes. These thing's sound pretty amazing. I get a better sweet spot of bass more in the center of the room than previous boxes. I get good bass at lower volume and more windows shake in my room the previous sub boxes. As far as the cone goes. It appears more for looks than anything. I just saw something similar with Polk Audio's older series of speakers had a setup like that on there towers and bookshelf speakers and wanted to try it. I think my top plate is too far away from the port to really make a difference with or without the cone. As far as a driver pick I picked perless cause of price. But I'm going to be building custom 12" subwoofers with High roll Rubber Surround Carbon Fiber Honex cones, CF dustcaps, 12 spoke 12" baskets, soft spiders, TC9 motors, 3" voice coils. So the whole build will be from scratch. Not sure what to label type of driver now on the main name of the thread now... But hope that helps a little. I really like how they sound and the sweet spot of bass in the middle of the room. Used to having to go toward a corner of a room to get the bass lol. This is also my first setup with two subs. Normally used only one.

Re: Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)

well decided that I don't really care for the cone look and the top assembly. So I had my friend make me two Round 1/4" pieces of glass I'm gong to use for the top plate. for now I finished both top and bottom pieces of brass trim. Now working on the logo. Think I'm going to call my builds Euphoria Technology, what you think?

Re: Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)

thats too bad I really liked the cones.
The brass is great! Your brand name idea sounds cool too.
How bout a source list and parts used.

Re: Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)

thanx guy's. Yea I'll put up a list when I get a chance. working on Christmas projects (gifts) right now lol. But I'm pretty excited for these. They should be even more amazing when I build my two 12"s for these. ^_^. I got the glass today but my friend cut it the wrong size. so he's making me another set. So I'm thinking about using both on each tube. so on top there will be a 16" dia. piece of glass then a 1/2" spacer then a 18" dia piece of glass. I think it will look pretty cool.
