    Anyone ever thought about putting a sub into a fire pit. Would a cylinder sub with a small hole and 8 ft of pipe have enough air to make the fire dance if possible looking for ideas already have a working sub fire looking for more push. Any advice or ideas welcome. Someone else must have tried this.

    new to this forum thing, do have pics when i figure it out but, basically its a 2ftx4ftx3ft enclosure with 10" concrete inner dimension pipe which leads to a 6" into the fire's edge about 8ft away. big 6ft pit about 1ft deep, down fire sub into pipe, instant bass out of the pit. had to put a big flat rock 5" from end of pipe for sound deflection. another powered sub in hut for surrounding area 6 pairs of outdoor speakers surrounding area about 50ft from center of fire. found this to be best for equal sound volume consistency. sounds amazing but dont have to scream to talk. this was only a test run to see if it sounded good or bad. happy with the sound. going to redo it to make the fire dance

    How do you prevent smoke and heat damage from reaching the sub?!

    the rock in front helps but it is 8ft away through a 6"concrete pipe. it is on a slight angle down from level of fire base and only firing the sub not the port through the pipe. figuring that a 1" pipe as a port might move the fire, havent tried it yet but hoping it works. However if sound quality fails ill have to rethink. problem is fire is always changing hard variable to factor. Again any input is encouraged. the ground even pulses pretty good up to about 8ft away

    also started out with 2ft deep 10" concrete pipe the 6" came into it about a ft down. had to fill bottom up about 6-10 inches until it sounded better i guess "liters of volume"
