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. :wave:
 
my bench goes all the way around the room see..

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:

An externally hosted image should be here but it was not working when we last tested it.

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?

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...
