I thougt speaker sales folk HAVE listened to all speakers!
I think he did actually say "I've heard 'em all" :-)

The side walls are 10 ft

1001534 looking from rear of church to front, organ is on the left,

1001530 looking from the front to the back

1001525 ceiling

1001527 rear of church from the very front wall

Floors are original pine circa 1870

We have two corners at the font of the church building to place sub(s) if needed.

If those are pics you need to host them on a web site like Image ShackImageShack I did the same thing my first time here.
What kind of organ do you have?

I don't seem to be able to attach pictures maybe as I am on probation (on the site!) and I am not able to email to you either.

Suggestions?

Fr. Ray,

I wish my church had this kind of enthusiasm!

If you had a bit more room you could go for these: (or just one, really)
http://www.passdiy.com/projects/el-pipe-o-1.htm

Maybe modify it to do 16Hz instead of 20?

Although, that would be one big pipe

I think it would still work if it was laying down.....maybe?

The tapped horn as suggested by Moray James seems like the most bang for the buck. I haven't heard one and am basing on others comments. If you are interested I have a pair of kits for the Servodrive Contrabass Sub (not from the group buy), I bought from Servodrive. I picked up a few surplus motors for the sub. Contact me offline.

It doesn't have to be round. The advantage of the round shape is you can get away with cardboard.
A square pipe still works, it just needs to be stronger. You may even be able to hide it as some steps or a large bench. I don;t recommend hiding it under the Altar, everything will rattle like little jackhammers when the organist hits 16Hz.

You may be able to fold it, I'm sure someone here can assist with the design.

Hello Fr Ray

I still can't find the pictures. I signed up for Yahoo and all it will do is let me upload pics I can't seem to look at anyone else's. I was thinking along the line of the El-Pipe-o project also. If you have an artist in you congregation who can do Faux painting they could be disguised to look like marble columns (see Fig.20 in link above). A pair of these with Mach5 MJ18's wouldn't cost very much and the base would be incredible. If you are thinking of a platform then check out this one. Acoustic Wave Canon

TwisterZ :
Did the link I have a few posts prior to yours not work?
I could email direct if you wish--great support at his site.

Also a strange situation. I had contacted the folks at SVS regarding two used 12 inch drivers from a SVS tube sub. Asked for the T/S numbers( I told him I was a priest and if he "confessed the numbers I coukld not tell anyone anyway!! :-)
The response: "While we wouldn’t give you the t/s, we’ll do better. We’d use our own LEAP PCs to help you design the enclosure for your specific needs"

Will post what becomes of this offer. Will take the plunge shortly--on aproject or 2 so many subs....so little time (money :-) )
Intersting how young folk at the parish are getting interested!
