$1500 CAN enough for two decent DIY 15" subs?
So as above, I've got about 1500ish to put towards subs (give or take a hundred dollars). Canada's dollar (as most of you know) is not great at the moment, so it eliminates any thought of shipping a pair up from my favorite American manufacturers (PSA, Reaction etc).
I was going to pull the trigger on a pair of SVS PC12 NSD available new here north of the border, but with tax it will still be just over $2000.
I've seen the Dayton kit's, but don't know enough about the whole process to judge if they're worthwhile or not to buy and ship up here (and take the hit for duties and exchange). There are a couple of 12" kits available at Solen.ca (I'd link to them but the website is having problems ATM), but again don't know if they're competitive with Dayton's stuff or not; though one purportedly hits 125db at 25hz.
I'd ideally like extension to about 18hz (hopefully room gain adds 1-2 db) and thought if I built my own I might be able to pull it off within my budget? I don't mind large subs, but have no preference for sealed or ported. I'm also more concerned with extension than I am output. I don't have clamps (but could buy them) - and would prefer flatpacks to save me from having to cut myself (though I could always just get the specifications and take them to a carpenter to cut them for me)
Is there any hope to pull it off within my price range? Cheers!
PS. The other option is to seek out a pair of MFW-15's here in Canada and order two of Mark Seaton's new amps (will run about $1300 all said to get the amps here).
