there is going to be a window infront of the woofer, on the front of the box, so you can see the cone.. :)

wouldnt have sounded any better :p

and, it was a rather annoying design to make, the first horn I did was easier, and turned out made better, but actually sounds worse... (it was for the same subwoofer drivers)

I'll find a pic or two for ya :)

see pics :p lol, umm, think a trumpet, tuba, or a horn (the instrument) but replace you blowing in one end with a subwoofer, and make it like 100 times bigger :D lol

sweet man, good job, it's nice to see people doing complex boxes. I make T-line and horns as well but I'm slowing down with them bc of the time, planning, and expense factors. Some of my designs sound okay but for the effort and size I really don't see them paying off, perhaps if amps were too expensive to get enough power they would pay off but that's surely not the case.

in any event keep building and thanks for the pics.
