    How much will it cost for a custom built HT subwoofer enclosure?

    I'm thinking about taking out my avalanche and using it in my room as a HT sub. I've seen many setups with dual avalanches as HT subs.

    Does anybody know who could build me a box and how much it would cost?

    Thanks.

    Don't need it done anytime soon. I'm just speculating right now, but I want to get an idea of how much everything will cost. I'd have to be able to sell my current HTiB and car amp before I move into real home theater audio.

    But I'm thinking the norm for a HT enclosure is a ported box tuned around 15hz?

    And it is a 15" avalanche.

    HT tuning numbers always seem so low to me... But I guess if you want an explosion to sound like it is really happening you have to do what you have to do.....

    Larger rooms aren't as accomodating when it comes to cabin gain. Sad, but true. Without the cabin gain you need a bloom near 20hz or so to keep things level.
