I am looking at building some subs for around 800 and here is a list of what I would like to have.

2 sealed boxes no bigger than 3.5cu.ft. each
15" drivers
Somewhere around $800 for amp/drivers/eq, not the box.
60/40 music/movies
Room 3,900cu.ft. listening at moderate levels

I am not a subwoofer "builder", but I would like some info from those of you who are knowledgeable in this area for good driver/amp combo's
Thanks.

My build thread meets your criteria, and was super simple. Of course there is still a ton of driver/amp choices available.

I've got an idea for you @ $800. Give me that $800.

No, but seriously...

Pick up two Dayton 15's (either DVC or HF) and two 250w plate amps. Build a 20" for each. Done.

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

I was kinda thinking that but maybe using a Behringer amp rather than plate amps. Would two HF's compare to one lmsr15'?

Wouldn't 2 15" Fi SSD's and an ep4000 be better?

I might need to go with a smaller box especially if I go with duals.(waf)

does this look right?
tc sounds lmsr15 vs FI q15
1500watts 2.5cuft


106db at 20hz....Not to bad?

~$400 in drivers, ~$400 in amp w/eq

Listen. It's All Good.
