Hey guys,

I have decided to jump into the world of DIY and I have a couple of noob questions I hope you'll help me out with! smile.gif I want to do some sealed 15's in approximately 4 cubic foot boxes. I am really trying to stay within a budget of about $700-$800 build total.

I was really looking at the Dayton DVC385 but know have started to wonder about the Ultimax UM15.

I am looking at the Behringer iNuke3000 (~$250 at musicians friend) or something similar to power these. Will this amplifier suffice?

I will eventually be building two more of the same subs to run a quad configuration eventually.

Another question is output and extension-wise, will two of these put my eD-a5-350 (old, downfiring model) to shame? My room is approximately 20x14x8. I want to run duals to get the smoothest response across all my seats. My room does not play nice with one sub and currently I have one of my pa-120 subs worked in with my eD sub to help with some room modes.

I'm sorry for the cluster of questions, I just want to jump on this gear before it goes off sale today and tomorrow.

I like the Ultimax, but if you are short on funds the DVC is a really good deal. The iNuke 3000 SHOULD be enough for you. Thought about getting the DSP model?

Hard to say how this new setup will compare to the ED sub- is it sealed or ported?

I have thought about the dsp model, but I already have a behringer dsp1124, which should still work for this application.

The eD sub is a ported 15". It is rated down to +/-3db @ 19hz. I could still possibly use this in combination with duals, but I'm sure it would take some tinkering to get it to play nice.
