    I just realized that I goofed on the port length whoops. The port length is actually 22” now which gives a tuning of about 33hz

    This is what I used to figure out the tuning. I have tested it and it sounds so much deeper and cleaner. I also did the 5db at 20-25hz resistor upgrade giving that great punch on explosions in movies. Very satisfied with my changes.

    I have replaced the original amp with a bash 300s amp and turning the 7” rear port into a 16” front port changing the tuning to around mid to high 30s hz. Here is some of the build pics. More to come

    I personally like very much the sound from a stacked pair of Infinity Reference 152 for each channel. The sound is more spacious than a single Reference 152 per channel.
    That’s awesome! Yeah I spent a long time listening to one song in all different configurations and this way gave the most fullness of sound to me in my room.

    Good job on the bracing Definitely worth the effort improving the cabs. As the previous poster said, don't worry about the polarity being flipped. Put it where it integrates best, and if you end up wanting to change it, it's simple enough

I removed the amp and made a blank off plate. Then I braced the top, bottom, and sides. I also used water based kilz primer thinned it with the recommended amount of water and painted the inside to help seal the “MDF” they use( it’s basically particle board). Then I took the one piece of fiber glass, split it up and glued it to the walls. In the process of removing the amp and fiber glass is when I found that the driver was wired backwards.

(As always) proper polarity will be where your bass is loudest, not when the sub is fighting the mains.
    this is what i thought initially i guess i will just place it in the room and try it both ways thank you

    so i have decided to get a deftech prosub 100tl and i have taken it apart to seal the inside of the box and do a better job with the fiberglass i have also removed the plate amp and installed it on my amp which i will have pics up soon when this website fixes that problem.

    BUT i have an issue!!!!!!!!!!!!! while taking everything apart i noticed that the wires on the back of the sub are wired backwards i have not verified the polarity yet but on back of driver black goes to red but on amp black goes to black.

    did they do this on purpose????????? do to crossovers or something? or could this be a mistake?

    PLEASE HELP.
