HomeAAC Subwoofer Project

Our Projects - Subwoofer Build
AAC occasionally chooses to work on a special project.  When we have one of these it will reported on a page like this for everyone to enjoy.
In this case, we are building a subwoofer to mate with our previous project two way speaker. The intent is to give us a full range replay capability instead of the restricted low frequency of the two way. While the two way does have some good bass, it just does not go low enough for certain types of music.
On this page, you will find requirements & specifications for the sub, design plans, videos detailing the construction, and parts lists.
