Smile My first DIY subwoofer project!

I have lurked for a while and while learning from all the forums.. I decided to build my first speaker... I just finished a week ago and I kept good notes of what it took to a final completed subwoofer.

I just wanted to help people that are trying to decide which route to go. I am very happy with the completed project! The bass is amazingly clean coming out of a $150 subwoofer (Tempest)

Hope you like it. Comments.. bad or good are appreciated!

I've been contemplating a shiva/tempest sub project in the near future, and I stumbled across your website earlier this week. I wish everyone was as thorough with their documentation as you. Your pics and comments will no doubt be valuable when I finally throw my project together.

Congrats on a job well done and your first post.

I think my next project will be a huge work bench, one that I can stick several bench vices on.

What do people actually use as workbenches these days though?

Thanks for the kind words. I hope to start my main speakers soon... but I am deciding if I want to build a second Tempest. The difference in the quality of bass from my Tempest and my old sub (10" design acoustics) is amazing. DIY is definitely the way to go.

Oh.. I didn't know what the rules regarding pics but since someone else posted some... here goes:

Believe me, if you have a bigger workbench, you will put more stuff on it. At one point, you will come back to the initial state. My workbench is never big enough...

I work in my 14' x 25' heated garage but a large amount of the money to be spent on audio has been and is now re-routed to the house maintenance

Montreal! I hope it's heated!(and bilingual)

Here in Vancouver we don't need it to be heated, just waterproof!



Francois, you have a nice setup.
I'm stuck with a Navin-like situation. I have to run the router outside.(when it's not raining)
