I've been reading the diy subwoofer forums for quite a while and I think I'm ready to have a go at building one, but need some help. My main purpose is to build the best I can for music not movies. I currently use an Axiom EP500 but want to see if I can do better.
I really like the idea of the 18" sealed as per this thread. I've read a lot about sealed vs ported and want to have a go at 2 sealed boxes. I'm looking at getting a crown amp (maybe a K2) as it seems to have excellent reviews at handling subs. I want to get some high quality 18" drivers known for accuracy with max power being a secondary consideration. I can plug in the tech specs to the simulators but I don't yet have a good feel as what makes one driver better than another and was hoping someone could advise
Price right now is not the first consideration as I don't want to limit any options, but of course my funds aren't endless.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Someone put together a list of common diy drivers, but I'm open to any suggestions:
18" Aura NS18
18" lms ultra 5400
18" Mach 5 Audio IXL 18.2.2
18" Mach 5 Audio MJ18
18" Ficar audio Q18
18" Soundsplinter RLp18 D2
18" eD190v2 by Elemental Designs
18" Maelstrom-X by DIY Cable
