i know a lot of people have had good success with using car audio subs for their ht setups. how well would car audio subs work for pro audio?
don't see why they wouldn't.
im sure it depends on your needs... and it seems typical pro audio woofs are very different than car audio woofs.
Then again, the stroker worked well for both...
it depends on the sub, some will do well, others poorly...just depends

i'm going to use a Shiva for my dorm setup...no reason why you couldn't use car audio drivers in-home...tuning is usually different for ported enclosures, but that's about it.
i've noticed a majority of the pro audio drivers use the accordian type surround. also they have very little xmax compared to car audio subs.
The shiva is actually a home theatre driver if I'm not mistaken. There is no reason why you cannot use any other sub in-home though. I've got my 15A setup in my dorm right now. Sounds wierd but it's because of the acoustics of the room...I know this because my speakers (JBL E60's) have dead and live spots in the room as well, and they are made for home theatre use.i'm going to use a Shiva for my dorm setup...no reason why you couldn't use car audio drivers in-home...tuning is usually different for ported enclosures, but that's about it
There will be a difference in the sound when going from car to home, but it usually works out okay from what I've heard.
