I am looking for a diy option that will play well or out do my ED A2 300. The goal is to keep it as cheap as posible must reach 20hz or lower. I have the skills to build the box if i know the volume it would be.
thanks

I'm building two Kappa Perfect slot ported subs for a friend of mine.

Using the Kappa 120.9w for $130 shipped. 500 Watt BASH plate amp for $189.

About $50 in lumber. So figure about $370-380 with misc items.

An audiophile likes to talk about how much they spent and how good it sounds.

Yes. I built my whole theater from ground up. But that thing is a little big check out my theater thread and you will see under the screen I have 2 and a half feet wide by 21 tall by 22 deep so I have to stay within those outside dementions. Thanks for the ideas.

You won't out do the eD and extend below 20hz within your budget. Sorry. I would suggest supplementing the eD sub with a sealed sub whose primary function is 40hz and below. Combined with the roll off of the eD you should wind up with usefull response into the teens. But driving low frequency sealed subs requires power and the amplifier alone will gobble up your budget. If you can extend your budget a bit, I can help.
