  3. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    First off, a huge thanks to Steve and Mike for helping me zero in on my objectives for a first (and hopefully last, for this part of the house) subwoofer build. (Rambling pages of indecisiveness on driver and design can be viewed here.) I have many hobbies and interests in life, and am well...
