    direct only as of yet. We don't do dealers

    also. 2.25 cubes you could easily port a single 12" K series driver, you could easily fit 2 12" K series drivers sealed in 2 cubes or less. 2 cubes for the pair is perfect could go down to .8 for each driver and still be just fine. 2+ cubes would work great for a single sealed shiva.

    Either the K or the shiva will sound **** fine in a ported enclosure but finding the room may become a issue.

    I personally feel it would be more than competitive with a he2. The K is designed first and foremost for sq applications (if a speaker this affordable doesn't sound good, what's the piont?). However, the way it was built allows it to do many things very well. The extremely versatile design allows it to sound great due to the middle of the road q in sealed or ported applications. The amount of throw it has allows it to get stankily loud in sealed or ported applications. The low end on the lil sucker is just something imo. The sq side of the K series is more than capable, it just has a 'hidden agenda' if you want to call it that meaning it sure as heck likes the spl side of the game as well. Port and tune it high the peak just grows and grows allowing it to be extremely usable in that application as well. It's one of the sq subs that wasn't happen with the traditional sq label that got desigend to do a few other things as well.

    bit too large for a pair sealed, however port them and tune it to around 30hz in that box size. and your output is going to be incredible.
