4 ohm final load
270 watts
5.5 cubes tuned to 17 hz
Preferably 1 15", but I could modify the baffle to run a pair of 10"s or 12"s as well.

I've currently got a 15" Treo SSi in there, but it just isn't efficient enough because I have to give it 170 watts @ 8 ohms.

or just buy my custom 15 built with the TC9 motor :D

Edit: mine needs more than 170watts though lol

Not gonna get a TC9 moving much at all off 270 watts.

you could possible get two or three ehqs 12" subs three svc2 or two 4ohm subs, it could possibly get low and loud enough

my audio pulse axis 15 will be perfect for you sir, its new too.

400 shipped to your door. :D

Thanks for all the suggestions, but I'm not going to get any of them moving with 250 watts I'm throwing at them. Every one of those subs has RMS at least 800 watts RMS.

Not perfect if I'm giving it 250 watts. :)

Power handling is not a power requirement. I would personally go with the Acoustic Elegance AV-15.

How about looking into Image Dynamics IDQv2 15"? ID equipment is super efficient and will most likely fit those requirements very well! I am running one with a blown coil and it has been working and sounding great for about 4 years now.

That's a good suggestion. I really like those AE subs, but I don't have $300 to spend right now. I'm gonna search for some IDQs on the classifieds.

buy a better amp? run 2 of what you have...

250 watts is a lot in a house. It's not like a car where you run 250 watts to your mids, lol. Plus, plate amps are quite expensive for the power you get. Efficiency > power in a home setting IMO.

JBL GTO 15

A bigger box would be preferable with a tuning that low, but it should still slam off of 250 watts. They're cheap, too!

just buy a EP2500. cheap and a good amount of power.

anything less than 2 15s on 1k a piece ported at 15 hz is weak sauce in a house...

:crap:

Behringer is essentially Boss/Pyle/Legacy.

I'd rather spend 30% more for a Crown.

8x 15s getting 125 a piece in an attic IB will do damage too :)

Werd on both of these choices for home. Dayton will be easier to obtain though.

FlipX99 is pretty happy with his 12" dayton sub in the home. The 15" titanic I listened to got down in a sealed.

Yeah, first time I saw those Behringers I couldn't believe how they could make 2500 watts for so cheap, then I read a bunch of bad reviews about em.

I may look into the GTO over the IDQ because of how cheap they are.

This sub is nice for HT, and will be nice on that power for HT. Tons of people use them for HT set ups.:)

Peerless XLS would actually be a good choice for you.

I think I'm going to go with the GTO 15 Single 4 ohm. The price is too good to pass up. And I don't have to modify my current cutout.
