Hi all...I'm a new member who has purchased 2 subs in the past, and was greatly disappointed in both. I am looking to try yet again to purchase or build a sub. I'm hoping to become a bit more knowledgeable now that I have joined this forum...

welcome to the club Carl! glad to have you on board. upgrading subs is a serious addiction that many of us know only too well. Be free to open up a thread in the DIY and/or retail sub section with price range, skill level with tools as well as space and size restraints and we'd be more than happy to help you out

One thing about subs it took me longer than it should have to learn and that's LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. I had great subs which sounded weak until I properly positioned them.

Welcome! All of the above, and subs sound better when phase-matched through the crossover region. Not hard to do. There's help on that in the system setup forum.
Excellent point, and not stressed enough!

Welcome to HTS!!!! One thing that I'm discovering that works.....bass swarms!!!!! Multiple subwoofers in different locations. Here's a graph I took yesterday - that's with one sub, then 2 subs, then 4 subs!!!! That's with no dsp or eq only room treatments. There are many people around here that can help you!!!!! Once again, Welcome!!!!
