  5. 54" H x 24" Diameter "Sonotube" - Who wants it?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've got a very heavy-duty tube perfect for a sonosub to anyone who would like to come pick it up. I know there aren't many of us HTS members here in UT, but I hate to just throw it away, and I can't think of any other use for it. It's not concrete preform tubing (though it could be used...
  6. My first Sonotube Build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    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...
  7. My First DIY Sub - Sonotube build IXL-18mk2

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Ok, so I have decided. My first DIY sub is going to be a SONOSUB! Woot! I found a piece of 24" sonotube approximately 12' long. As much as I'd love a 12 foot sub, I doubt it would fit anywhere. I am planning on using an IXL-18mk2 with a 6" or 4" port, debating on making the sub anywhere...
  8. Help with Sonotube planning

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I know this is probably a basic question but... Can someone tell me if I understand this correctly? I was looking at SVS PC12-NSD for $749 shipped. I thought I could probably build one cheaper and as good if not better. So I like the look of a cylinder sub, it fits my space the best. A box...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Well I was planning on buying an Outlaw Audio LFM-1 EX subwoofer. However, I've always been a hands on person so I decided to try DIY. I have read and understand how a sonotube works, but I'm having trouble coming up with the right dimensions using winISD and sonosub.exe. The room dimensions are...
  13. Help with SI 18 ht sonotube build

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    After much research I'm deciding to build two separate SI 18 ht-4 ported sonotubes but I see that most everyone is building bigger volume tubes tuned below stereo integrity's spec's ( 20 htz tune ) but a huge contributor in the DIY sub world has this in mind, 72 inch tall, 26 inch round sonotube...

    The guy across the carpark makes these out of PVC for a living, doubt he has considered them for HT. FTR the guy loading the truck is around the 6ft mark. Cheers, Dotball

First order of business...

Rona can special order it for me, but they can't tell me which brand it is or how sturdy it is. Can anyone tell me if there is somewhere that has the stuff in stock so that...

    I am slow. I admit it. I simply do not understand where to begin. Do I pick a driver and an amp? How do I figure out the dimensions? I saw the enclosure calculator, but how does that help me? I am hoping someone can tell me what the dimensions should be. I don't know what to type in...

    Do the Sonotube subwoofer sound okay? Are they as good as a "pro" sub? Just curious how much they typically cost. I want to get at least 25Hz. Thanks.
