My first Sonotube Build

Let me preface by saying that I know nothing on the science of building speakers. With that said, I did not tune this sub, I did not put anything on the inside or follow any porting measurements. I have a 6"x18" port, a Dayton Audio RSS315HF-4 12" Reference HF Subwoofer 4 Ohm and a Dayton Audio SA240 240W Amplifier. The sonotube dimensions are 18" by 44".

For me, it's perfect. It literally shakes the house so much when I have it louder that our glass cups upstairs will begin to clank. So I'm happy with it. Granted I don't play it this loud to begin with. It's just a basic set up. Nothing crazy. Bought some cool looking fabric to wrap it in, which proved to be quite the challenge.

I fiberglassed the inside and outside corners of the tube to be sure and seal any sort of air that might sneak through. All in all, I'm extremely happy with it. Just have to finish the top off and it'll be done.

Also, sorry for the pictures, they were all taken from my phone. The picture with the fabric on top shows what the fabric looks like.

Nice! I think in general ported subs are fairly forgiving on the tuning and you've proven that here! Nice work You can always throw your dimensions and specs into the software and see if your as-built configuration is optimized or not.
