dear peoples and stuff,

i'm lookin for a sub for HT duty. i just tested the tempest today and it sounds super kick-***, but it might be gettin sold to a lucky person. i'm sellin it cause the box is gonna be too big for my taste. so, i'm lookin for something very similiar to it but the only thing is it needs a smaller enclosure. i know everybody will recommend a dayton dvc 12", but what other choices do i have here?? LMK

I am a huge fan of the Martin Logan subs. How big is your room and how much money are you willing to spend?

That's a pretty good sized room so you're going to need something with alot of output.

This guy is having pretty good luck with this amp check it out maybe it'll be a winner.

Use one of the 12" Dayton HO RS woofers. Low, loud and clean.

Are you looking for something to supplement the lows or an *** pounder? I like front firing subs because I like tight clean supplemental bass, but if you want the other then down firing are good. Also, if you have carpet make sure it comes with good feet and if you have a hard floor make sure it comes with soft feet. 8" are usually too small. 10" or 12" is usually good and a 15 for home ,unless you really like lows, is a bit big. Sorry I’m not of more help, but I’m not too up to date on the lower end subs. But good luck anyway!!

You really don't. A good friend of mine just got into DIY work and he built PE's example and let's just say that it is PLENTY loud.

NO! EET NO BE AS GOOD! YOU MUST LEARN DE AINCHENT TEKNIQUE OF DE SHAOLIN!

But anyway (enough cheap Kung Fu movies for today), I am selling my Titantic as well. 150 shipped takes it. Two cubes sealed would be ill.
