    Need help with subwoofer for home audio

    Thank you for responding. Space isn't an issue and it'll be for both music and movies. If you need dimensions for the space, then the box can be a maximum of 25 inches tall, and it doesn't really matter how wide it is. My main concern isn't the box because I have a very knowledgeable friend that will be able to help me with that.
  2. Hello all and thank you in advance for your help. This will be my first build and I'd like to build a new subwoofer for my home audio system. I'm flexible, but would like somewhere around 800-1000W to drive a 12" sub in a ported box, and to do this I plan to spend somewhere around $500 or so. I don't have a great idea of what a realistic budget is, so I'm flexible, just would like to keep costs down. I need some help figuring out where to start. Could someone please point me in the direction of some good resources regarding amplifier selection specifically? Thank you all. Quick edit: I'm using an optical connection from my computer to a Yamaha RX-V677 receiver. If anyone has any resources regarding the best connection between the receiver and amplifier, that would also be great.
