    AND BEFORE YOU SAY IT MALONEY I'M NOT LOOKING IN YOUR TROUSERS...

    So I'm building a subwoofer for my room (ah a tight fucker I know), I got the nice plastic porty bit for it today but i realised I need a bit of pipe thats 10.16 x 27.30cm (thats 4" x 10.75" for you old skool imperial nuttas)... Tried looking on wickes and b&q but they don't seem to have anything big enough...

    anyone got any ideas?

    you could get a pint can of something (Stella maybe) cut the tops off and roll it up in a tube!

    lol that would be pretty ghetto... For a better effect I could use special brew cans!

    how would you join them? solder i recon but it'd be a weak joint :-\

    yeah would have to be solder or super glue, but it would be weak and the tube its self would be really thin, you could always kick it pikey and start blaggin gutter pipes from buildings hahaha

    ah yea! i looked in a few 'ICE' type shops but they only sell really short tubes (i guess to make it easier to tune the sub lower), never thought about air filters or things (y)

    Fes you are a fucking hero. I've tried almost every term involving the word pipe, bashed "pvc pipe 4 inch" into google shopping and got like 200 results!

    cheers fella :not_worth
