    Well, what do they use then? The only alternative cone material I've seen is aluminum.

    Yup. "slef" made. :D

    If i get my hands on someones digicam, and if this thread (or similar thread) is still active, i will take a couple of pics. All i can say that if you make subwoofer yourself, use thick MDF. Best material for subwoofer box. :)

    I'd actually go for 1/2" plywood myself. http://www.linearteam.dk/default.aspx?pageid=winisdpro is a great program for determining optimal cabinet dimensions. You need to get the cabinet tuned right and have proper port dimensions etc.

    I dunno. I have heard that plywood isnt that ideal for subwoofer boxes. It works, but MDF, AFAIK, doesnt "leak" sound around so badly. I'm not hifist, so i dont know every little detail.

    *EDIT* Checking that program out. My box is indeed very badly shaped. But since element is pointing to floor. Sound gets mirrored everywhere.

    Oh yeah, i remembered my sub elements power wrong. Model is XR-1712 and its 450W strong, and its CAR subwoofer. Bit overpowered for inside uses, :giggle2: but i like it. :)

    There's no such thing as too much power, the real danger is too little power; Just back off on the gain. The more power you have available, the cleaner the sound will be. It's all about headroom.

    Yeah, but car subs are designed to blow sound with high pressure, no? It easily eats away accuracy, but it is necessary because sub must be heard thru sound of car, and that is a sound that eats all bass away EASILY. There is no car ambience sound inside house so it kinda eats away the purpose of car subwoofer at the cost of soundquality. It still sound good though, i love my sub. :D

    Whatever my 22 watt sub from the Inspire 6.1 6600 sets my windows rattling on certain bass notes with clean sound from the sub ;P

    Bass from THX Content on the Audigy 2 soft ZS is even better for the sub!

    They are like the X-530, but with 2 speakers.

    I've heard they are really good for 2.1.

    8" subs...:D Where I come from , 10" are the midrange drivers, and you want a 15"/18" for low end. Behold: the Whappo Grande! http://www.ghservices.com/products/accugroove/wgrande_150x177.jpg
    Sorry for the crappy pic, but you're staring at 21" of low-end luvin. :p
