    After several attempts, I don't feel these will work well in my room. I would like to sell with the Sonotubes if anyone is close to Dayton, Ohio and is interested in picking them up. They're made well. I hate to destroy the tubes, so hopefully someone can take them. Right now I'm taking...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Just like the title says, I was installing the driver and I sheared off one of the positive binding posts. I've emailed Kevin, but I was wondering if anyone had any of the blown ones laying around for spare parts before he gets back to me. I'd be willing to compensate for time and quick shipping.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
