  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I built my first DIY sub over a year ago now I think and it is still running strong. When I did the model it showed that the XMAX was exceeded bigtime under 17Hz but that has not happened. My A500 amp has no high pass filter and I play HT stuff all the time. What have you guys done to blow...
