You can't find 6" sonotube or 6" pvc? Try looking for "Quick-Crete" tubes at your Lowes or Home Depot, it's the same as Sonotube, and should be readily found in 6" diameter.

I've checked all home depot and lowes stores in my area and none carry 6" sonotube (quiktube) or 6" pvc (normal thickness) only 8" sono and 4" pvc. I take it 4" will not work.
the const. supply co. did not have any either. maybe i'll contact them today to see if I can order some.

Yes, line the walls with ~1" of material and the port with several layers. You can use poly batting, fiberglass batting, or acoustic foam.

Won't be long now. You'll soon find those previously mentioned commercial subs to be nothing more than children's toys

If you didn't already seal in the top cap, and didn't flush mount the port to the very top of the top cap, you would benefit from creating a roundover to act as a flare.

Hey Steve. Yeah if a guy has the space and inclination to build one, it's quite the sub! So what driver was finally decided upon?.. SDX?

Re: Decided: sonosub, Help!

Yeah, I already flush mounted it. will this be a bad thing? should I redo it? I have another 6" piece.
If it's just a small deal I won't sweat it.
Im gonna install the wire lugs and wrap the port today, I'm still waiting on the driver.
