Well I'm trying to come up with a Sub Enclosure that won't upset the misses and kid proof.

So far I'm come up with concept of wide and low box.
thinking up to 16" high x 60-72" wide and 12-16" deep

My start idea is 16"H x 60"W x 12"D ~ 6.6 cube ft

Would fit underneath Vinyl Shelf between mains.
Thing is I'd love to hide the Drivers from kids poking tendencies.
Would also love to try building T Line enclosure.

thinking a pair of 10" single 12"????
Anyone try this ? haven't found any builds in my searches.

Design ideas? Driver recommendations?
Ohh would love serious solid deep bass while musical. (who doesn't) solid to 20hz

Bang for buck pretty important too.

Is the vinyl shelf open in the back so you can just point the sub backwards? 6.6cuft might be enough for a Tline in a 10 or 12", I don't have any designs off the top of my head. That volume would be plenty for a nice ported enclosure.

What is your budget?

Yeah, could face the sub backward or down facing.

Maybe the drivers facing the rear on angle.
T line much easier with one driver right? Should I be thinking 4 8"'s, 2 10"s, 1-2 12"s, 1 15"??

I'd like to spend like less then $250 for drivers. 200 for amp. Although have a plate amp kicking around I could use.

Any parameters I should look for in Drivers? Parts express stuff?

well It Now I'm kinda liking the idea of 15"
Looking at the Dayton Audio DVC385-88 15"

but I think the with my Noob math the cabinet would need to be ~14 cubic feet. I'm sure that is horribly wrong.

See I'm not sure how large the cross section the Line has to be. My design has a cross section of roughly 3.5" x 16" x 12'

Anyway this is my starting point.

Love to hear what is wrong with it and how it could be improved.
think it would be tuned to 23 Hz

At first glance, that CSA looks a little small for a tline sub. My ML-OD-TL csa for TC Sounds Epic 12s is a little more than twice that size, by the looks of it. If I were you, with that space, I would be looking to design a T-TQWT. You could do it with only one fold, so it's long.

not quite what I was looking for. Really want to build something interesting. I have a NHT 8" sealed, Velodyne 12 " ported already. I have under my shelf for Vinyl LP's which is about 16" high and 60" wide and 14" deep room for a sub that the Wife would like to look like furniture.

Kinda want to try something fun. the T line and Folded horns looked interesting,

But really I have a spot between my main speakers which is 16H x 12-14D x up to 60-72" wide. ~ 6 cuft to ~ 9 cuft
I thought that space length would/could lead to an interesting design.

I'd use 1,2,3 or 4 drivers. 100-250 bucks driver budget. less $ is more obviously since I'm not rich. I'd like it to work well with about 250 watts maybe be able to hold 500 if I get a hold of that down the road.

Just want a Sub box where the sub can't be poked by little fingers

I'm not sure what "ML-OD-TL csa" means

Although I do Like that Ottoman idea. we don't have one I could hide a sub in.

I mean I guess I should just go bottom firing ported dual 12'. Was just hoping for something more creative.
