Default Pie-SAF Sub Project

Ok guys I am looking for some input on my next sub project.

I will be building a new sub for my sister and her husband to go in their new house. I wanted a high SAF approval, which in this case would be Sister Approval Factor which is rather new to me as I am a single guy and the current sub I have is rather a monstrosity.

Over the holidays I was visiting with family, and my father is a woodworking hobbyist, so I was perusing the things he made around the house and thought a Pie Safe he had made would be an excellent basis for the design. Thus is born the Pie-SAF Sub.

I borrowed a freinds computer that has Solidworks on it to do some initial design implementation and here is what I have come up with so far. (Image included)

What I am looking for is comments, or suggestions on the overall design. It will be loaded with a 12" driver, probably either the Dayton DVC or RS HF 12" in roughly 3 - 3.5 ft^3.

The box in the design measures roughly 18" Wide by 15" deep by 30" tall.

Build it to last, with an attractive finish, so that SAF will translate well into WAF.

otherwise, so far so good.
Jesus loves you.

A similar project is on my "To-Do" list. Right now I have a huge box with dual 10" subs that are looked upon very favorably.

I plan on getting some coffee table legs from a furniture parts distributor to make it look more professional, I will be adding a drawer front a cabinet door to the front to make it look like a real coffee table.


Have you looked into the NHT 1259 Sub? If I recall, if has an F3 below 30 Hz with a small sealed enclosure.


Finally, here is a link to a similar project:
