\ohhh i c them now
hey , i liked the ported design, can we got something more "loud"
that driver only gets up to 95db's at the highest wattage of the driver

but i think if we want more db's out we need a bigger power driver and a folded horn box, mmmm
can we get a poor man's SS15 ?
using 1/2 wood and some lest costly driver than the 299 bucks ones they are using
maybe a 120 bucks driver

and if i want to make the JBL ported box, i will need to hit the inside volume right ? doesnt matter if it is a cube or a rectangle shaped box, as long as i follow up the volume spec and the port size and lenght of the tube

Don't deviate from the SS15 plans or driver selection. If you do it right it'll be worth the effort/$$$.
