Default Time to update www.diysubwoofers.org

Google have just released their "+1" code, so I guess it's time to update my website, The Subwoofer DIY Page. It's been awhile since its last update. Any constructive suggestions for improvement would be more than welcome.

Things I'm considering at the moment:

1. Section on 1/4 wave designs (replacing the current "transmission line" section)
2. A "how-to" on using HornResp as a design tool
3. Links to other design tools that are a bit more powerful than the spreadsheet tools currently offered on the site
4. A project submission and rating page (that might take quite a bit of work to complete though!)

Finally, if you know of any good DIY subwoofer projects documented online, let me know and I'll include links to them off the relevant pages on the site.

Brian,

You site has been a very useful one. Thanx.

All i can say is "keep it simple" (ie no Flash, or fancy java-script navigation.

I have no intention of blinging the site that way .

The only javascript on the site is the Google stuff, to help pay for its hosting.

Hi, I think Tapped Horns deserve a mention - they seem to have become fairly common here, with many people saying positive things about them.

Hi there: The FAST system uses a FR/bass unit-sub, how about a section on this system?

Toward Mr. Droke's suggestion, perhaps you should include a page on Subwoofer Applications, which would describe different areas that subwoofers are typically applied, like as part of a FAST-style loudspeaker system, integrated subwoofers in multi-way towers, in-wall subwoofers, and multi-sub systems like Dr. Geddes' distributed multi-sub approach and Floyd Toole's four-corners approach for getting the best bass in a typical room.
