Yeah, that's my point. The guy wanted to buy something from Canada and I suggested a way for him to support a Canadian company, save the time and money of driving for hours to go across the border and back...and NOT have to lie to the border agents about what he's bringing back just so he can come on avsforum and tell everybody what a great deal he got by buying in the USA!
Lets just say this, if a person is honest and pays the duty...you ain't saving much at all....not to mention that most electronics is not covered by warranty once it crosses the border. But then again, you could just lie about that too and pretend it was in the USA the entire time.
BTW, I can buy an Inuke3000 dsp in Canada with free shipping for $260. Somehow I think you're full of it when it comes to adding up the money you 'think' you save. Anyway, some people prefer to do things the honest way....just not people like you.
Sorry for the interruption Pax, I'm not sure where you'd like to buy your equipment but I can tell you one thing....buying in Canada doesn't have to be much, if any more costly. You just have to keep your eyes open and know where to shop. If I were you, if it's a 'first' DIY attempt, I would probably build a sealed sub because it's nice and easy and it's on the smaller side. You can buy the Dayton Audio RSS390HO-4 and build a 3.5cft sealed enclosure. Feed it with the iNuke3000 DSP and you're golden. The driver is $200 on Solen, the Inuke is $260 on ebay. Oh wait, you could order the driver from PE in the USA for $175 and the iNuke for $220 or so....maybe it's worth saving $50 to drive a couple hours across the line and pretend you have nothing to declare on your way back! lol
If you think a 15" sealed sub is too much then there is always the 12" version which means cheaper driver and cheaper amp...or use the same iNuke amp and build two 12" subs
I would definitely try building one yourself, it's a great hobby!!!
