Default Sonotube

Where can sonotube be purchased? I have never seen it in a store or for sale on line.

Can someone direct me to plans or a kit for a TL subwoofer design which is practical and proven?

tl sub

HD sells smaller ones

if that fails, try building supply and concrete suppliers in your local yellow pages. prices vary wildly though.

I bought mine from a concrete supplier, in a 16 foot length. They wouldn't offer to sell it in smaller lengths, so the narrower your tube, the less you can probably expect to spend. I paid around $70 USD for a 16 inch by 16 foot tube.

(About 40 bucks total for my finished enclosure, and I still have enough material left to build two more subs... not to shabby if you ask me!)

I went to a concrete supply company and purchased 20" diameter sonotube. I went in with measurements and they cut it to length for no extra charge (27"). I found that concrete suppliers offer a much wider variety of tube diameters than general hardware stores.

Good luck on your sonotube project!

Wink Sonotube ??

Hi,

There is nothing against making a 'Sonotube' look-a-like. Your speaker will perform just a good is you construct your tube as a wooden box. This is much faster and easier (Making the tube air thight, easy to attatch the second speaker) to create.

Good luck,
Mazz.
