    They sound very good. Plenty of bass and well balanced. Bryan did some really good work on them.

    How dare you call these Rat Rockers.
    My next project or 10 will surely be less than a rat I am sure, when compared to these. Great job Bryan.

    Thanks Dan. That's very nice coming from you -- a guy that so many (me included of course) aspire to. BTW - thanks so much for brining in that port tubing material. I grabbed a bunch. I build a lot of subs, so that material is perfect for me.

    Even with those huge reliefs you made to the back side of the baffles it still looks like those Aura drivers are gonna sufficate :o They must have been designed to be mounted to 1/2" partical board baffles

    Do I spy some freebie yellow caps from DIY Chicago?
    Haha...yes, the garage is my shop/man cave/storage/ oh yeah and place to park a car.

    Those NS35's are meant to be rear-mounted, but there just wasn't enough time for me to figure out how to do that in 1" thick stock. I am seriously considering a nice thin hardwood "flase baffle" for the MTM section where I can rear-mount the NS35's.

    Yes, you spy correctly sir.

    So, where's the measurements???
    Ha..... Don't hold your breath for those my friend. I got these done just in time for the show and they never made it out of my garage initially. Now they are back in the garage waiting for me to haul them up to my kid's room.

    No promises on any measurements.

    The total cost for this project was fairly cheap. Since I used old wood, all buyout drivers and the buyout port plus lots of used XO parts and a used SA240, I was able to keep it under $250 for everything.

    Fat chance getting that out of my kid though.....;)

    Overall, I'm extremely happy with the sound. The 6.5" subs have more than enough low, punchy bass. The 33Hz tuning seems to be perfect and they work very well in the 1.25ft^3 box. The 3" flared port has absolutely no noise whatsoever, even at high volume.

    The MTM section and my XO shockingly work well. I was lucky....I'm no liar. I got a few nice comments from the folks at InDIYana....thanks for that.

    Soon they will be up in my Sean's room.......He better be nice to the neighbors, because these "not-so-rat rockers" really rock. :D
