Seriously, I have no workshop or woodworking tools so that's part of the allure of just figuring out a way to screw a couple of drivers to the ends of a Sonotube.
I appreciate your input that it's possible to get to 20Hz and below with this combo. The next question would be if it can come close to the ~110dB the stock TN-1220HO was measured at with room gain in the 20Hz range. It's sounding more and more as if this might be in reach and the performance of the TN-1220HO could be replicated in sealed form at a bargain price.
is in process of building multiple dual CS1214 sealed 16" Sonotubes of ~3 cu. ft. I just might wait to see how his turn out before getting serious about breaking out the credit card.
Couple comments lol...
1. I'm happy for you to piggyback off my work. I've done it off many folks here over time lol. However...
2. Dont wait for me before jumping.... Because I'm not gonna be fast with this build. Also....
3. Room gain is going to be different in each room, so whenever I get done, dont judge your potential by what I've got because my layout is not condusive to room gain in the slightest.
Not having tools is something I fully understand. However DIYSoundgroup has two options that would solve your problem. 1.5 cf
& 2.0 cf
sealed boxes. I'm sure you got enough skills to paint it, or for a bit (ok a lot)
more, Parts Express has an interesting option
... Its not cheap, but its fully finished and even if you DONT use the plate amp cutout thats fine lol.....
Also not sure if you read, my Sonotubes are gonna be Dual Opposed, so 2 subs per Sonotube, one on each end lol. And Sonotubes still require some work to do because you gotta cut some baffles for both sides. I too lack woodworking skills, but I know people with them..... just gotta drive to get to em, but its worth it for me lol...
