looks like it fires down into the mouth of horn - mounting access via the panel on which BASH amp is mounted?

frankly, I'd have done that part differently - just a personal thing, but I generally like to run outboard amps on subs

The woofer fires down into the throat section, it's not tapped. I mounted the amp on the panel for convenience. I have a second panel with terminals so I can use a better amp externally if I wanted to later. The plate amp is well sealed and doesn't cause any problems.

I built it 24" wide... For the room it was going in I didn't need to go any wider.

@focal: The performance is very, very good. With the 200W amp it easily matched the output of my 500W eDesigns A5-350. It's not as musical as a lot of direct radiator subs I've heard but that's not a big issue for HT use. I get in-room response down to about 16Hz.

That's strange to hear when the website shows the THT being responsive all the way out to 200hz.

It didn't seem as articulate or "fast" as the A5-350, but that could be a limitation of the plate amp.

What frequency do you have the low pass set?
