Default High quality solid oak barrel Sub!!

I can't resist this, Would sound and look good with a 15" in it.

Oak Wine Barrel 100 - Oak Wine Barrels - Shop - Solid Oak Wine Barrels - Woodbarrels

100 liter barrel, 22mm thick, top and base 17" and weighs 30 KG 64 lbs NICE.

I've seen a barrel used as a sub before and it sounded great.

I will keep you updated on the progress.

It may be hard to keep it air tight. Barrels are made to be filled with liquid so that the staves swell and seal. Left to dry out, the staves will eventually and shrink.

Insert witty signature line here.

Maybe could use spray in truck bed liner to seal the seams.
Generic Signature

As the wood of the barrel dries out, drive the metal hoops down further to tighten the staves together.
Here's the hoop driver:

Or just use a wooden block.
