sorry i don't have the specs for the sub right now.

dang that's not the sub you use in your wo 32 is it?  i am also in the process of building the wo32. I cut it all up about like 6 months ago but haven't got around to puttin it all together. I got a few questions on it. did you use the little brace piece that goes in the biginning of the horn? close to the speaker. zygi says it is really important to have. know what i'm talking about? and how did you assemble speaker baffle? did you do it like plans say? did you have to router (i think that is what it's called) the piece that the sub pushes against?

this all i have done.

i tried to build it exactly like the plans, every piece of wood was in there, not perfect, but as close as i could. i dont own router, so i mounted the subs to a 'removeable' baffle (like in the plans, its easy when you actually do it) and then i cut the hole in front of the subs just a little bigger so they poked thru.theres some other weird bits of wood here and there that require some thinking and make no sense, till you hear it.
ive als built several dbs (10 and 12) wedge, wo, hwk, etc etc, but the wo32 is

SOMETHING ELSE. its sooooooooooooooooooooooooo flat, 20 hz is exactly the same volume as 80, its really weird when you listen to music you know really well and when the low notes come, they are right there, solid as a rock, with zero loss of output all the way down to the lowest notes Shocked Shocked Grin Grin Cheesy

get your wo32 finished, as close to the plans as you can, you will love it more than any subwoofer you have ever built.

house only, not in a vehicle.

that pic ^ is just a pic of a sub i thught youd like Smiley i used 'dayton series 2' 10" subs in my wo32.

i too am a speaker freak

i traded it for 2 x 12inch subs i had

^ next to a 12"  soundsplinter rl-p

had it in 6.5 @33, it was fun Smiley

never built any speakers other than subs really, with a sub i think we can get away with some bad workmanship

with speakers i have the feeling if things are not exactly right the performance of the speaker will suffer badly.

if i were to try a speaker build, id do the

honestly, if the sub is in the right box in the right enviroment the sound is always great ive had 6.5 inch subs and 18s, they can all sound amazing.

look for the mg944 on decwares 'speaker' page (main menu)
