    True, but I'm fairly inept when it comes to building things and none of the builders on the cite live close. That 110 db Tuba 36 intrigues me though :bassist:

    Shipping via Greyhound was pretty reasonable from Rhode Island to Western New York State. Certainly much cheaper than gas to go get them. I'm kinda handy but wood ain't my thing.

    Hmmm... I wonder how much it would be to Greyhound one up from LA. I live in Sacramento...

    I think I paid about $50 to ship the two boxes.
     
  7. Some of them look like direct rip-offs of Bill F.'s designs, and others look like the not-quite-real-horns that a lot of people sell for subwoofers. I've read many of Bill's articles in AudioXpress, and the 35 hz he quotes on that one cabinet is seriously optimistic IME.

    Go get one of the real DR/Tubas. Besides Tubas are probably a lot lighter than 115 lbs!

    Yep. I'd gues my T24 goes about 70lbs. The Neo driver adds about $50 and sheds about 5lbs to what I've got.

    None of those boxes are anything like a Tuba; they are variants of a mid 1950s design that's been variously used by Cerwin-Vega, Peavey, Fender, B-52, Adire and about a hundred others over the last half century.
