Bit of a change up here for me, tell me what you think, pros.
Prolly gonna just keep my Cap and perhaps add a second down the road for my eventual (lol) larger room.
That said, I'd like to have something to keep me busy during these fall Wisconsin months, so I've considered building a couple CHEAP subs for near-field fun. Who knows what tomorrow, never mind 3 years will bring, but I can always find a deserving home for these down the road with my brother or friends, if need be.
I have a Crown XLS 1500 laying around for 500+ watts per channel @ 4 ohms so I was considering picking up something like this if you men deem it to be a good value at $199: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=295-420
I've seen more than a few builds with it around here so I'm assuming it's a pretty solid choice. (?) If not, please advise.
What am I looking for? I dunno, lol, perhaps a bit of room smoothing for now and a little spice in the near-field? I'm not expecting to lower my ~15 hz in-room response, but opinions on the "best/most appropriate" cab would be appreciated. If there's one available from PE I wouldn't object to picking that up and spending my time on the finishing side of things.
Seeing I already have the power, I'd like to think I can build myself a pretty nice little sub for ~$300.
Any advice as to how I could perhaps do a bit better while staying at or below that mark would be appreciated!
