Having just built my first reflex sub, I am now looking to build something     more scoop-like.

I know this has been covered before, but after much trawling through the various MS-18 threads on here, it seems there are conflicting opinions as to whether the Fane XB would be suited to the smaller chamber of the MK3 or the larger chamber of the MK2.

I was leaning toward MK2 and then adding the extra panel to make it MK3 if the driver didn't look controlled but if someone could point me in the right direction first that would be great!

Dont worry about wat you  read bro, xb in small chambers have been used for donkeys years, regaedles what any ones says....xb will work in small medium  large medium.....depends on what sub/bass bass notes wanted and cone controll..beware...

Thanks for this, perhaps I just go for mk3, build one and see if I like it... Will be mainly used for listening to roots stuff so nothings crazy low, but would also like it to be a versatile enough box to do gigs with other types of music.

Cheers!
