All,
I am currently running an eD A7-450 and a A7-350.
Additionally, I have an, empty A7-450 cabinet...l would really like to build a sub using the cabinet but not sure where to start. Could use some suggestions as I have been out of the sub loop for a past couple of years...
Thanks!

Maybe $500 - $600 for the sub (or less if decent sub) then maybe an external amp. Would have to do something with the plate amp opening though...

LF911,

 

The Mach 5 UXL-18 would be perfect for that cabinet (assuming fit is not a problem). It's likely a better performer than the eD a7-450 driver, so you'll likely get better performance than the a7-450.  Good luck.

That would be my pick also. It should be back out anytime now.

I believe the UXL-18 can handle up to 5000 Watts so there are a lot of options available.

I guess it really depends on how much you want to spend on the amp. There are many options from Behringer (inuke 3000, inuke 6000, ep 4000) the CV 5000 is becoming popular and of course there is the Lt.1300 wink.gif. It really depends on how much you are wanting to spend.

For your ported cab, I'd got with an inuke DSP amp. You'll need a HPF to protect the driver.

 

FYI, I do have a LT1300 laying around powering my transducers...I might be able to be convinced to sell it if interested...

I'm actually a little concerned about the Lt1300s. . I've got two, powering the 450 and 350...not that I've had ANY problems with them...but. well you know....

I used a 500w Yung amp to replace a LT550 and have no complaints. What are the dimensions of the LT1300? Although, with the drivers you're looking at, I would leave the amp in place to fill the cabinet void, and use an external amp from Crown, etc...
