Transmission Line Design Ideas for Hybrid Audio I6SW Subwoofer

Obsessed much?

Yes I am obsessed by the performance of the Hybrid Audio I6SW subwoofer. Ever since PWK’s (AKA Hexibase) video ‘Just Imagine’, I was memorized, but I didn’t believe that a 6.5″ sub could really convince people to that degree, it did! The best guess I received was a young enthusiast with a JBL prefab 12″ sub in the back of his mini. His guess was “3 x 10’s on 500+ watts.” So out came my Digital Designs DDLE312 12″ prefab, and the Hybrid Audio I6SW subwoofer became my resident subwoofer.

Here are my transmission line considerations. Lower down the page are some pictures of my builds. Enjoy!

  1. Love your work with the Imagine I6SW t-line designs. I have also been obsessed with them since watching the PWK videos on YouTube. Thanks for posting your designs, I will build the L shaped t-line for dual I6SWs this weekend.
