DIY Subwoofer: Would like some feedback!

Hey guys. I've been around here before, but I've never really been an active member. I recently built myself a sub and I wanted to get some feedback from you folks. This project is done, but I could apply suggestions and advice to the next DIY I am planning to build for my brother-in-law.

Anyway...I love the way this thing turned out...it has a tremendous amount of bass and it makes me grin ear to ear every time I crank it up.

The stats:
TC 12db-500
115 Liter enclosure
Two 3" x 17" ports
Tuned 21.8 Hz
Walls lined with fiberglass batting
Butt Kicker Amp with 25Hz HP

One of my concerns was whether or not I should have used more internal bracing. Questions/Comments? Thanks for checking it out!!

Welcome to the Shack!

That's a great looking project... a great design to take advantage of the unused space behind the TV. The dB-500 is a great driver... especially for the price.

I would probably have added a couple of more window braces. If it sounds great, that's all that really matters though.

What paint did you use to finish it?
