Sure, why not? It's actually pretty optimal for a subwoofer since there's only one side parellel to the driver so it's pretty easy to tame standing waves.

Juspur,
I have a question/suggestion. I like the idea of the wire being crimped from the speaker to the wire from the amp. I did notice the holes the wires passed through look open. Did you seal them? If not I would, using something like a 100% silicon or glue. Just a suggestion so they don't produce unwanted sound.

John

Somewhere here is a Scandinavian build of a push-push woofer using the larger metal version of these bowls...

Hi Kazoo
Yes, I sealed the holes for the driver-wires with silicone. No unwanted noises

Well, it depends on the order of the sub-crossover:

If it's a 12 db/octave, I would suggest it to begin rolloff around 120 Hz,
If it's a 24 db/octave, I would suggest it to rolloff from 150 Hz.

Please remember to make a crossover that also protects the superbowls - otherwise they'll be damaged at moderate to high volume, due too large movements.
