    I am in the process of building a new subwoofer for my stereo/cineam system.

    It iwll be using a JL 10W3 D4 driver, in a 18mm MDF enclosure of approx 300x300x490mm.

    It will be driven using an Arcam P75 power amp from the sub pre-out on my Denon AVR2800 receiver.

    I have already built a subwoofer based on the Adire Audio Tempest in a 500x500x900mm enclosure, but this is way too big to even consider taking to uni in October.

    The W3 will be in the 300x300 end of the enclosure, with a flush mahcined 30mm MDF baffle, facing upwards, with the opposing end having 2 layers of 18mm MDF to give strength. The base will also be bolted to a Linn Kelitk base, that weighs around 10-12kg, it's made of a granite composite, and comes with spikes that should ground it well.

    I will try and get some pics of it when I can. My scanner won't work with WinXP that I've got on now.

    I modeled a JL 10 before and it look like it would come out surprisingly good.

    Retro, I have a Infinity Perfect 10 do you think this could make a decent home subwoofer.

    BTW what university are you going to and what you studying?

    I myself am finishing a BSc (Hons) in computer science.

    I was recommended the sub by the guys in our in-car department. Works well in anything down to 3/4 cubic foot.

    I am off to Brighton Uni, to study Electronic and Electrical Engineering for 4 years.

    I'm interested in any pictures you have of your sub projects.

    Good luck with your course.
