    +1 on that zingo. For some strange reason, I have to keep reading about "cardboard" subwoofer boxes. This is just too much! You have to poke fun.

    nme medic, thanks for the laugh!

    I keep shaking my head in disbelief!WTF? These guys should be chasing a hottie in a skirt rather than messing with a cardboard sub box. You can't help but laugh at them. Oh well!

    Though cardboard does make a mighty fine sub box, be sure it is corragated cardboard. Use 5 to 6 toilet paper tubes for the airhole, pack one of the toilet paper tubes with tampex fluf. (Stops most of the booming, but once a month the sub becomes a bit moody. Midol sprinkled over the sub's cone dust cover helps this moody blues condition. Sit back and enjoy the chuffing coming out of that dar airhole thing.

    Everyone should have an airhole.
  • So did we definitively determine if T_Unit should have an airhole for his sub and, if so, what size it should be ?
