First, I'd just like to express my guilt for jumping right in to asking for help and asking questions with out really contributing anything. Im a cable tech so if anyone has any questions about running coax, splitter configurations, amplifiers or anything related to dealing with a cable company feel free to pm me.

Anyways I started reading this forum more as a curiosity and I think it would be a really fun project/learning experience to try to build a sub.

Id be using this for 50/50 home theater and music.

The room is 17'Lx12'Wx10'H

I was searching around the internet for designs for subs that would fit and work well in a corner and i came across a sub that uses one driver on one of the 3 sides of the triangle and 2 passive radiators on the other.

Id like to spend around 200 on the driver if htat gives a good reference point for the rest of the project.

Well for the money it is very hard to beat the SI woofers. Which PR's? Pair of 18 PR's from TC Sounds?

Those 18's are huge.
I was kind of hoping to keep the cabinet size smaller..

If you were looking down from the top..

<20"/\<20"
....<20"

20" tall as well.

Is this unrealistic?

I think this would give me around 3 cubic feet if my rough calculations are correct.

That would let me put the SI 15".

Im not sure how to determine what size radiator though.

The more I read about passive radiators the more intimidated i get. :yikes:



Maybe im just being unrealistic considering how much of a newb i am.

Okay, yeah. My math is not strong. =D

To get 3.04 ft^3, I'd need each side to be 23in. (Inside the box of course.)

The way I came to that is I found the area of the actual triangle and multiplied that by the height.


-edit-
---Wow.. I could have simply used the calculator right in your sig.
Baby steps.
Anyways, it came up with the same. I'm guessing it will need to be a little bigger once the internal braces are imagined but this is the ballpark size I'm hoping for.
