Default Subwoofer in a floorstander 2

It's done! Well almost...

I just finished my subwoofer in a floorstander ordeal. Although I am still waiting for the crossover, they sound like a good upgrade. The floor is shaking at relatively low volume, and I can feel it in my gut. It isn't boxy or boomy, and seems to merge quite well. I can still tell there is some mid-range coming from it, hopefully it should go when I add the inductor.

The best bit is that I would pay more for a dedicated single-driver sub. I can't beleive how much was missing before.

Will try some construction pics
(Also available from my website in sig (down at the moment))

I'm wondering what crossover would be best. Straight inductor or mix it with the mid-woofers. Any thoughts?
