    Question Home-Brew Super Sub Question

    Okay, i have the Dayton Titanic MKIII (15"er) on order.
    I have the sealed box built.
    I have some pink insulation
    I have the speaker connections a/wire/solder.

    First Question:Which direction should the speaker be facing for best sound/impact? Top? Bottom? Side?

    I am planning on front-firing - but would like to hear from this distinguished forum for a quorum...

    Second Question - is there a dark cherry veneer that i can glue on that would look decent? Good places to buy? I.e. Home Depot? Other ideas to cover the particle board? 'Faux granite countertop'?

    Get ready to rumble!

    You're going to love how this sub sounds.
    I believe that this driver is meant for front firing. That's how their kits are designed. I could be wrong though. Kex and/or Feanor may be along soon to give a more definitive answer.

    As for the veneer. Yes, Home Depot and Lowes are a good place to start. Parts Express has some nice stuff too. Did you check theirs out?

    I do like your choice of dark cherry.

    The titanic isn't made for down/top firing, you could get some sag over time, I'd just go front.

    As for veneer - http://www.oakwoodveneer.com/
    I've had great success here.
    You'll have to sand the snot out of the cabinet though...

    Nice link Kex.
    There are so many choices, it would be hard to pick a favorite.
