Ok I'll go ahead and answer my own question since it's so obvious...


Q - how many cheesy movies did Patrick star in?
A - all of them.

Micah, now that you know how to install the drivers and amps on a sub, you should take advantage of the JL sale on W7 subs. For about $900 (each) you could order two W7 drivers, the same drivers used in the Gotham and Fathom, and $700 for a Class-D mono amp. Build a fiberglass box real quick in the garage, and it would sound just like a Gotham 213! Well, probably close anyway.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Do they use fiberglass enclosures just for aesthetics or is it for other reasons?

Well actually if I were design my own sub I would use the W6v2, not the W7. I had a box with W6v2's in them and they were way more musical/accurate than a friend of mine who had W7's in his trunk. The W7 is a MASSIVE sub designed for one thing... SPL!!! And it achieved that objective and then some. But the W6v2 sounded way better to both of us.

A DIY project is not out of the question at this point. I really don't have anything in mind yet. I've been contemplating installing some 12 inch subs in my ceiling and building box's around them in the attic even. I don't know what sort of problems that may present, but it's an interesting idea. I'm not saying that's what I'm planning on doing, but like I said, nothing has been ruled out as of yet.

If you like diy, then maybe give a horn loaded/transmission line sub a go? Cheap enough that it won't break the bank if it doesn't work out. I was headed in this direction, but the shipping costs of the components killed the project.

I was going the Table Tuba route, but if you have room for 2 800's, I'm sure you could fit a Tuba HT or maybe 2 HT's stacked.

Hmmm... interesting. So those are just the plans eh, you buy all the materials separate? One question, when building a DIY subwoofer, when you buy a plate amp do they come with crossovers built into them, or do you have to build a crossover for it as well? Because building the box, installing some speakers, running the wire and connecting it to a decent plate amp would not be that hard to do. But it I had to build a crossover on top of all that, then I might start to feel a bit overwhelmed.

I have no idea at all on how to build a crossover.

Yeah, buy the plans and purchase and assemble the components on your own.

Looking through some of the completed projects, some guys got creative and made the enclosures into cabinets to store CDs/DVDs.

The plate amps I found at Parts Express had crossovers already built into them.

The horns are pretty interesting stuff in terms of efficiency and extension. I imagine that they are not more popular because of the large enclosures.

Since we are talking about Patrick Swayze, I will throw in my two cents. I went to high school with his younger brother Sean (he was a year older than me I think) and let me tell you he was one hellraiser. I can't think of one movie of Patrick's that I really enjoyed though.
