    Eric, you were the first to put your thumb on this, I wasn't sure what happened so I thought I'd ask if it was still avaiable.
    I don't want to pull it out from under you, I do have a very capable HT subwoofer already. I was interested in building a second smaller one for upstairs (yes, a sealed 18"er would be smaller than my dual 15" sealed R-lp Soundsplinter). I'll give you first option to formally refuse before I really put my foot into it.

    OK, you 2 guys work it out, I'm cool either way.

    Except if your road trip (Eric) is for next Christmas...

    I was half joking on the first post, and obviously never followed up. I do need to build a sub for the new place, but it'll be a while before I get around to it. I'd just end up storing it in a spare room here until I worked my way through my LONG to do list.

    As far as I'm concerned, Bent, you have right of first refusal. I'll have to make time to schedule the road trip.....if you guys decide shipping is acceptable to you, go for it. If not, I'll take it.

    I'm going to finally make it to Pembina N.D. Saturday to pick this up from the parcel service (pending weather).
    it's a 2.5 hour drive.
    Unibox says something 3.5 ft^3 or slightly lager after driver dispalcement is about right.

    3-3.5 cuft would be great for a Maelstrom.

    Does anybody know what the displacement opf this driver is?, not the Vd, how much do I have to account for the space of the driver inside the box? I planned 24"x24" internal at 15" tall for approx3.5 ft^3 but this isn't including the driver

    Or you can use the "box of packing peanuts" method. Fill a cardboard box with packing peanuts. Now remove enough peanuts so you can set the driver into the box at the level you desire. Measure the volume of the peanuts you removed.

    I'm not certain you need to get all wound up about this, Bent. The enclosure volume you are leaning toward is recommended in a number of places on the net without regard to driver displacement.

    Since I haven't heard otherwise, I assume it arrived in good shape?

    Nice driver eh? It's very efficient so it won't need a lot of watts. Make sure you brace the box well. I used a double layer on the top thinking I could get by w/o bracing and I've seen the top panel which was an inch and a half thick doing about a 3/8" peak to peak displacement. I looked after the stuff on top vibrated off and hit the floor.

    uh yeah...ya can not have too much bracing.
    More important than Panel thickness, all things
    being equal/sensible.
