    I have a pair for a small 3-way, but they most likely won't be done for Iowa. Spending this week in San Diego for my son's wedding. Can't work on speakers, but the weather, food and drink ain't too shabby!

        W-A-A-Y better "sub" than W3-2000 (in large part due to generous Xmax). In 1/10th cu.ft. can do 91dB w/25wRMS w/an F3 in the 30s.

          I bought one of these a while back, but it's still on my shelf. Is the 1/10 cu. ft. box ported? If so, what are the dimensions of the port?
          Thanks!

            1'id x 14" (13 would work if that's all you could fit).

                Yes, I bought one and it works great for a teeny tiny sub. It truly does produce bass into the upper 30's - just not at ear shattering levels. You really do have to hear it to believe it.

                As usual with TB, the measured specs were way off, but the actual box modeled about the same as the published spec would indicate. I used shelf ports because it was the only way to get 0.5" X 3.5" X 29" port in a shoebox. The model includes a 25Hz hi pass that comes built into the PE 25 watt sub amp and it has a 100Hz low pass to match it to my desktop speakers. (see in progress photos)

                  Would you mind sharing the details (box dimensions and crossover) of your build, Bob? I really like the looks of it and I have the drivers to build it.
                  Thanks,

                    Sure Mike. Everything is finalized, but still needs documentation, so this will be an opportunity to get that together. Give me a day or so.
