No, it's just a very small company. They are not massed produced items. They are pretty much hand made.

Re: Subwoofer Setup

Is it alirght to use vinyl on the box instead of carpet? I was thinking of putting some kind of thin spunge/foam like material between the box and vinyl? WIl this interfer with the quality of the sub? Also if i put thoe neon rings around the sub, will that mess up the sound too?

Nope. I suggest getting vinyl that already has the foam attached to it. If not, you'll be fighting it big time. Neons, they are ok but sometimes the cheaper ones can create a lot of RF noise that your amps may pick up and run through your speakers.

Re: Subwoofer Setup

Vinyl is a lot harder to do then carpet so be ready to take your time and be good at it.

Re: Subwoofer Setup

I use wood glue between the joints when screwing together then liquid nails or silicone on the inside of the box along the joints... overkill....yea....but its sealed good. I don't use terminals unless requested to I usually just drill a small hole then pull the speaker wires through and seal the hole.

Re: Subwoofer Setup

Personally i have installed one single tempest set up and 2 dual tempest set up and my tepest for my room is SAPPOSED to be here this weekend, damn back orders. The signle set up was 4.2cuft sealed in a camry, took up the entire trunk. great SQ. 410w. i forget what amp.
both dual tempest set ups where 6cuft each tuned to 25Hz. Same exact enclsoure deisgn and all). one was in a Denali and the other in a suburban. both SLAMMED. 1000w JL in the suburban and dual 400w amps (some off the wall brand) for the denali. the suburban had far better sq but even the denali with off the wall amps had better SQ than many main stream set ups i have heard.
I have heard 2 SE set ups. one SE 12 in a 3.5 cuft ported box (not sure of the tuning, i didnt personally install it) and one with dual se 15's. the dual SE 15's had 800w each going to them and the single 12 had a JL 1000w amp on it.
Persoanlly i like the sound of the tempest by far. i know the SE is a great woofer. but i think the tempest is better for the price. both are great. i'd just like to see a little more flava' in your recomendations.

Re: Subwoofer Setup

3.5 cubes ported is WAY too big for an se 12 ported..... the response was prolly sloppy as hell comparitavely speaking to a smaller box..... se 12's are good from 1.8-2.25 cubes ported..... What was the SE 15's in?

I just use Liquid Nailz on the seems then screw it together every 2". Make sure to predrill everything. No other caulking is necessary but if you want to go ahead. Make sure that if you use something like Silicone, make sure it completely dries before putting the subs in. The vapor from it can degrade the material used in the subs. Use to have a lot of JL Audio subs fail and it only happened with my one installer. Come to find out he liked to use Silicone on the seems after everything was together like B-Stang. But really, only something like the L nails only needs to be used. We tested different ways of building them in the lab and found that was the best way.

Do you plan to vinyle more than one side of your box? If so, the easiest way is to get real thin pieces of Luon or simular stuff and cut it to match the sides of your box. Cover those with your vinyle then glue them to your box. Otherwise doing the seams so they look right is a bitch!
