    Icon14 Recommend a good 15" HT sub

    I plan on building a low tuned ported enclosure and using this for HT as well as in my vehicle occasionally.

    For HT use, I have 500rms @ 4 ohms to work with so I would like a Dual 2 ohm sub.

    I was hoping for an 18" sub but the 19Ov.2 is out of stock at the moment and have heard it is pretty cheaply made.

    I would like to spend $250 or less.

    What would you guys recommend?

    Thanks.

    Re: Recommend a good 15" HT sub

    Any sub in the proper enclosure is fine for HT. the enclosure performance is drastically different as sub placement, room modes, and listening position dominate what you will hear.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Recommend a good 15" HT sub

    Thanks. I decided on a Dayton Titanic Mk III.

    Is there a tuning range that would work well for both the car and home environment or should I just **** it up and make two boxes?

    You could use the same box for both if it would fit in your car. For home use you are going to want a larger, lower tuned box than needed in a car, in general.



    HU - Pioneer
    Front Stage - Old school MB Quartz run off a JL e2150
    Rear Stage - Stock - well one works, LOL
    Sub - Tang Band 740C in between the front seats
    Sub Amp - A tiny Kenwood. - because it fits under the seat.
    Total Spent on everything $50.
