Hey guys, a few of you have helped me out recently in lots of questions about subs that I've had.
I'm leaning towards building something using the DB500 drivers from TC sounds since they seem to be a good deal and it looks like their specs are good (20mm xmax, etc).
However, in talking with a couple of members, it seems that I may be dissappointed with going this route and shouldn't "cheap out" and should build something more powerful. However, I tend to think that even if I was to build a sub with one of these drivers, it would still probably be a much better sub than 75% of what's out there in the stores. Am I wrong to think this?
Sometimes I feel that because the people on this forum are probably the pickiest (I mean that as a compliment) when it comes to subwoofers, that perhaps I could build something that's not quite as powerful as some of the suggestions and it would still be a great sub.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all that I have learned from several experts in this forum! I just think many of the people here are buildings subs to satisfy the extreme of demands, not the norm.
I'd love to have the ability to put a 15 cubic foot sub in my family room, but ther'es no way that's going to happen, so I'll have to deal with making something much smaller.
Anyways, I guess what I'm asking is, even if I was to build a basic DIY sub with a driver like that mentioned above, and a basic 300/500 watt amp, would I be disappointed, or do you think something like that will beat most of the commercial subs available in BM stores (assuming it's build correctly)?
