Default SONOTUBE enclosure... how would it sound....

Im thinking of throwing a single HDC3 18 in a sonotube enclosure if I can source a local tube that size.

Looking to find a 20" tube so I can make it atleast 30" long to get my depth.

If I can only find say a 24" tube then my depth wont be as deep and I may not have enough room for port length.



Google Image Result for http://www.patcave.com/sunosub/sandtop2.jpg

Would an external sonotube flared port work??

Just throwing around some ideas here

I plan on getting dirty into the fiberglass with this.

I just need some help and opinion on how it might sound.

Planning on probly using a 10port at the other end.

If I cant find a sonotube what else could I use to possibly mould...

Trying to be unique here. S

SONOTUBE® Concrete Forms, SONOVOID® Concrete Voids BlastMaster™ Blasting Tubes

A buddy of mine and I made a isobaric enclosure for some 10's I had laying around out of sonotube. It actually worked pretty well all things considered.

From what I have read, the knock on tube enclosures is that all of the sides are the same, which, apparently is a bad thing. An ideal enclosure would have no equal sides.

I am going to do a SonoTube tline/qw just for fun with some eD 3.6's.

If you look in the Street classes, you will find a lot of tube enclosures. A few I can think of off the top of my head:

Street A - Team Neo Eric - 155db
Street A - Team TMH - 155-156db
Street C - Fred Schwartz - 156-157db

Most tubes are made for SPL purposes. With a 10" port it will unload very quickly.

I recently built a new enclosure for my summer ride using 8" Sch40 PVC pipe. Its not my first time building tube style enclosures but my previous ones were built out of sonotube then mat and resined but you can't beat PVC pipe. Its a lot less work and the cost is higher but you don't have to fiberglass so the cost ends up about the same.

Here is the pipe, I paided ~$5 per foot. I will try and snap some pictures of the finished prodject. It uses an external 3" PSP aero port.
