Hi there!

Im very new to all this, bought a pair of tms4's a couple of months ago and would like some extra bass! I've looked around at second hand but can't really afford what I want and don't want to buy lemons. I'd love to build my own but again can't afford tools and I'm terrible at woodwork, so can anyone here recommend a company who supply quality flat pack kits?

Any recommendations would be greatly apprecited!

Have you tried presenting some plans to a local timber merchants / joinery shop? I found a local one in Reddish, Stockport last week which will cut and assemble Punishers from plan at a very reasonable rate.

I'd get a test cab made first, building kitchens and furniture is not the same thing as building speakers. I've seen some bloody shoddy speaker cabinets made by professional joiners before, loads of gaps due to the tolerances for furniture being much larger than those you'd want on speakers, no rebated edges for access panels to sit on, etc.

I agreed with them on building one the first week in January, with a sneaky plan of building 6 depending on the outcome. I fully appreciate what your saying but I have high hopes for this particular firm, they had just done us some truly intricate work to the tune of a few grand and the quality was superb.. So just gonna wait and see what a prototype brings I guess.

Why not 12s? Don't be fooled into thinking because they are 12 inch cones they cant do sub - also its got all to do with what you have in the TMS. They will be covering different freqs - hopefully!
 
don't forget LABsubs use 12 inch drivers.

Yeah but I've never heard any LAB subs so can't comment, has any one got any near Guildford I could listen to? How do they compare to punishers? Ive heard plenty of punnishers, also thinking on the lines of usb's? I know they sound great!
