Yes, reminds me of JL Audio's more extreme [$$$] subwoofers, though like you, I'm leery as to what sort of real specs, long term reliability they will have at such inexpensive prices.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

I have a similar woofer and I can easily hit 25Hz in a correctly tuned box, so 25-35Hz tuning is certainly fine in my eyes. Note that it's a straight line tline.

Has anyone tried this? yesterday was thinking about proportions according to the compact form factor, and decided to give 12x24" to the sides, so there you can screw a whole 12x24" standard size of plexiglass/polycarbonate sheet, letting see the interior to see the woofer and port labyrinth, it should look nice with some RGB led straps mounted back along the other side controlled by those cheap led controller that are sound activated.

I think that a 1/2" thick plexiglass window is more than enough, only weak point will be the woofer chamber area, but there we can put a cross brace touching up, down and sides, I think that it would be more than enough for bracing such small enclosure. I will need to threat all the contact areas where plexiglass seats, and insert a dowel where every screw of plexiglass will land, mdf is not screw friendly. Then I thought I can use a 12x24 thin foam sheet instead, and draw and cut the lines, then gluing it as a whole piece, so the chance of leaking is vanished once everything properly mounted.

What do you think it would be better? the foam sheet or to apply silicon gasket? I think that the foam sheet is more convenient, avoiding the irregularities we can get while manually applying the silicon gasket.
