    Hey guys, I wanted to share with you my sub project. After my last sub, which left a lot to be desired, I decided to use the Trio 12 after reading all the good things about it. Originally, I built it with the bash 300 amp, but after talking to CCS, I decided to use the Bash 500. I really liked...

    Re: Trio of CHT SHO-10s These are the 2nd generation model. Round ports instead of the slot port, with black polyfill unlike white polyfill in the first versions. Asking $125 for one, and $175 for the other two each. $125 cabinet has a bit of heat stressed cracking on the cabinet/paint from...

    I'm looking at building one of the two of these: SDX10 Tapped Horn (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/creative-sound-solutions/37767-dual-sdx10-tapped-horn.html) Trio 12 Loaded Horn (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/creative-sound-solutions/51662-css-trio-12-loaded-horn.html) Both...

    Building a new Trio 12 slot port design. Well, helping a friend build it. Got a 500W PA amp with the high-pass filter set to 20hz. What's our optimal configuration? Size and weight is no problem, just looking for a simple slot-port design. Thanks!

    I have a spare Trio 12 driver with a couple of plate amps (300W eD and a 240W Dayton) kicking around. I had the Trio in a sonosub, but dismantled it last year. Looking for options on a new build. Maybe something like a tapped horn or something exotic. Are there any pre-existing builds/plans...

    I have a single CSS Trio 8 that I received as a door prize at InDIYana in 2009. Wondering if anyone knows or happens to have another of these drivers? I've got couple of ideas running around, but I need another one to make it viable.

    My original decision thread is here. I was able to find more space by integrating my subwoofer, center channel, and entertainment stand into one. I also, decided on round ports instead of slotted because of the design complexities that arose with the center channel cut out. This is my...

    newbie. planning first build exclusively for HT use. low budget and WAF is in play for size as well. planning something on the order of 4-6 ft^3 (and that might be pushing the WAF), ported with an inexpensive sub. Have already ordered a BASH 300 Amp. Top candidates for subs are CSS trio and...

    Hello all: I'm in the planning phases of building two trio12 transmission line subs. I found the design on creativesound.ca's website in the documentation section and I am very interested by them. Has anyone on the forum built one yet? My main purpose would be for home theatre (90%), and...

    Was just perusing the CSS web site and noticed a loaded horn kit involving the trio 12 sub driver. Does anyone have any insights or experience with this design? It looks very impressive on paper as far as FR and SPL are concerned...I'm suddenly very interested. One concern is placement. The most...

    Here's a journal of my DIY sub build (in several postings)... Background: Current HT receiver and speakers was a $300 big-box special. Although it sounded decent, the bass was lacking. Knowing I wanted a sub that could deliver subaudible content with confidence, I started looking for deals on...

    Hello! I came across this hornkit at css website and thought why not? But since i live in sweden and will buy the driver from byggdinbas.se, could i get the design from anywhere else? cant seem to find it at the website as solo. Best regards Tim Larsson

    Finally persuaded a friend to try out a DIY sub. He is not so great with wood so he opted to use the new flat pack kit. Bob mentioned the wood cuts were good but not "perfect yet" as he would like. There is a over routed bit on the amp side with a poor repair attempt, but overall it is good...

    I just finished my enclosure build for my IXL 18 and wanted to design something for the other side of the room to compliment that sub. I decided I wanted to go with 2 CSS subs in a single enclosure, preferably 2 TRIO12s. I will be running my IXL off a single channel from a EP4000. Which leaves...

    Folks, I moved from a single 10" woofer, to a pair of 315HF subs, and would now like to consider a different 12" sub that would go into a sealed 2cu ft box for <$200.00. Seeking sound quality over SPL. Ideas? Regards, Paul

    So I've been modeling the Trio12 a bit in WinISD to see how it would perform in a sealed enclosure. WinISD agrees pretty closely with the CSS product sheet that this driver needs >2cuft. of internal volume to keep Q below 0.707. However, in talking with someone who builds/sells custom subs...

    Hi all, After building my frist enclosure for my Trio 12 and my bash 500 plate amp I had some bottom-out issue. I ordered some cheap passive crossover that should do the trick for now but they aren't going to solve the trouble since I will lose some of the low extention of my subwoofer. My...

    Is it possible to put a trio12 kit in a 2ft3 enclosure? Would it perform well and if so what would be the tuning point? Could you still get roughly the same output with the same low tuning point for HT only. Thank you

    Just waiting to get the final measurements for port length and tuning, but got started today anyways: Here's the 46" piece of 16" sonotube as well as a 31" length of 6" PVC for the port: Easy to cut this stuff. Just measure it, mask off the one side as a guide, then use a jig or skil to cut...
