Hi everyone,

 

I had decided on an SVS SB-2000, but I want to make sure I'd not be better off building my own and save some $.  Can anyone recommend a kit that might fall into the spec range of the SB-2000 (or slightly better)?  I'm looking for mostly music, no real interest in super hard-hitting HT stuff, although I'd like to be able to know there's a sub in the room when I watch an action flick. 

 

Thanks, in advance for the help!

 

 

System:

 

Marantz NR1504 (AVR)

Sib XL (F,C,R)

Sib (rears)

 

Budget: around $500-$600

Find a iNUKE 1000 with DSP for around $200 on ebay. If you want a plate amp instead, http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-spa1000-1000w-subwoofer-plate-amplifier--300-809

 

Add some glue, paint, acessories, and it should come to around $550-$600.

i would suggest something that can play up to at least 150hz or so, as there are no woofers in your speakers.

Listen. It's All Good.

I figured I would try out SVS's subs and ordered dual pb-1000. 

 

After exploring, I am now contemplating building something simple like what you posted above.

 

I currently have polk audio CS2 and Monitor 70s II.  Would this be a better alternative?  

Dayton Audio 15" Ultimax Subwoofer $262.00

Dayton Audio SPA1000 1000W $271

 

I'm assuming putting this together is pretty straight forward?

Off the top of my head I would recommend 2 15” MK 4’s http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-ts400d-4-15-titanic-mk-4-subwoofer-4-ohm--295-405 or 2 SI 15"s and 1 amp http://www.parts-express.com/behringer-nu3000-inuke-3000-watt-power-amplifier--248-6704 or a $100 more if you want the dsp version which I would suggest especially if building sealed. Add wood and miscellaneous that puts you in at $150-$250 under the dual option you’re speaking of with conservatively a few dB ahead. wink.gif You always have the option of going a more budget friendly route also.. and a cheaper source for your amp.
