    What to build a Nice big HT Sub!!!

    I want to add a good sub to our HT setup...

    Thinking of picking up a plate amp from Adire, like the ADA1200... I don't think you can really beat it for the cost...

    Which one of their subs would give me the Most output with that AMP... As usual, I want it all, I want it to hit Hard and Low and have a lot of output....

    I can go pretty big on the enclosure...

    on the contrary. from what ive read and the testimonies, the avalanche 15 does better in 4 cubes sealed off 700w in HT than a tumult did.

    ask mr tarnell (or whatever his name is) over at SiN

    Depends, you can order them with either XLR's or 1/4" phono plugs.

    1/4" phono to RCA is just a simple adapter from Radio Shack or PE
