Have you done a search here?...............I think you'll find a wealth of information regarding this particular design. I'm sorry I have no experience with this speaker but I have read a great deal here on this forum!!
Cheers

Hi Glenn,

I'm not sure I fully understand your last post, however, the site you attached in the first post lists the Thor at 89db SPL, so they're reasonably efficient.........what amplification do you have at present?

Cheers,

Also, see This thread for alternative enclosures that will improve the bottom end.

Scottmouse did 12 consecutive posts on Thor problems back in January -- running through March -- these stopped me in my tracks when I was going to build -- Some Thor models to mull over

you should read this in conjunction with the thread which Bob Ellis cited.

I built a version with a rhombic prism 36 inches long -- the Dupont Centari auto paint just came in so we are working them over in the shop.

At the very least, if you build the original enclosure, remove all the stuffing from the last 10in of the line, which will get you a bit more bass weight, and closer to the original claimed performance. Still not exactly stella thoug, considering the drivers used. Of the lot, Small Thor would be my choice if you don't have space for a giant enclosure. If you do have the space, build one of the big cabinets and watch the local subwoofers run for cover.
