A couple more pics.....

Yeah yeah, i know i need a bigger tv!! ha ha. But the sub looks cool eh?
I still need to sand down and paint a couple more times, but i just wanted to get it rigged up....purely for testing purposes, obviously!!

(Massive thanks to Moonfly for sorting it all out for me )

What do you think?

Your eagerness to get it up an running shows lol, theres even still some remnants of dust in there . Its starting to look like a proper sub now though, and it suits your setup. I think it will look very well once you get it finished, and we get the grill(s) sorted.

Looks pretty good to me, but then I would say that, wouldnt I

Ha ha, yeah, eagerness indeed mate. Maybe a damp cloth over the drivers wouldn't go amiss!! Still, it sounds awesome. I've never heard anything like it in my room. I've thrown a lot of the bass heavy movies at it, and it's not even flinched....never sounded as though it's struggled at any point. The way it delivers that deep, clean powerful bass....the sort of bass that makes you jump. Equally impressive is how quickly the bass disappears. I want to get a response graph sorted out next. See if i can get REW up and running, then we can really see what's going on.

Re: Acoustic Elegance dual 12" diy sub.....

Well just an update on this sub. I honestly can't believe the bass that these Acoustic Elegance drivers are capable of. My previous best bass i've had in this room was an SVS SB12+, which, let's get it right, are fantastic little subs for the money. This new beast though is on a whole different level altogether. Savage bass on movies, subtle bass on music. Absolutely love it. I still need to finish the sub with a few more licks of paint etc, but I think that may be a while yet, as every day, i'm throwing a bass heavy movie at it! There's nothing i've found yet that makes it struggle. Audyssey Multi EQ set the sub at -6dB and i've boosted it to a pretty steady -4dB, and that really is plenty. Just waiting on my external sound card to be delivered now, then i can get a REW graph posted for your guys analysis.

Re: Acoustic Elegance dual 12" diy sub.....

Yeah man, for sure. I'm really enjoying it. Had The Dark Knight on earlier. I think what amazes me the most is how precise the bass is. It hits you, then it's gone. And i must say, the drivers don't really move much, even at high levels they remain remarkably 'calm'. Ironman (cave emergence scene) just sounded ridiculously good. The Mrs came down from upstairs thinking there was an earthquake!! ha ha
