I start with a open clean space in my den and lay some panels out.

It goes together faily easily. I used all stainless steel hardware for the assembly and polyurethane contructive adhesive.

I opted to install the 12" subs before I installed the last side panel.

Here I'm cutting and laying out sheets of Macassar ebony veneer. The whole cabinet will be veneered and then placed in the corner of the room.

Nice. :twisted: That should fill in the bottom end. Is this kit the same as their "TH SPUD" kit?

How do you like it?

I believe some people call it that. It is a great sub. A horn sub is very open and airy in comparison to a traditional box sub. I had to back off the gain some to keep from rattling the windows and pictures on the walls. I can still feel the vibration 12 fee away sitting on the couch. Yes, it works for me.

After looking into this, the THT SPUD is a different speaker than the DTS-10. The DTS-10 is larger and goes lower. All the way down to 10 Hz.
