Sonotube sub build x2 18hz (Peerless)
 

This is my first attempt at building a sonotube sub. Did research and got the programs and this is what I came up with. My Original design is getting changed. Instead of a 3" port I'll be using a 4" port and the cosmetics are going to be different. I just don't want to re-draw the design lol. Here are a few pictures.

Nice progress so far, what are you gonna power them with?
I spy a ton of other drivers in the background, more speakers to come?:devil:

I take it you used an elbow for the port to make the port fit, correct?

I was going too but decided to stick with a 3" port. Then I wont have to worry about an elbow. I think that's enough of a port and I'm using a flared port. ordering stuff from parts express Friday. Debating in raping the tubes in a black carpet like typical builds or go out of the norm and do stainless or powder coated aluminum.

my parts are coming in Tuesday from Parts Express. I'm also waiting on a quote for two 16" dia. 1/4 thick glass for my top pieces. I will be covering the tube with metal and painting it. do something different. I'll have new pics up in a week or two.

What's the model number of the Peerless subs and what are you going to power them with?

Peerless 830500 12" XLS Subwoofer and two Dayton SA240-B 240W. Have one gotta order another one. I don't need a ton of power sense I can't ever turn it up.

It's coming along. Did you remove the release film from the inside of the tube before you attached the end caps?
