I am a newbie who had spent these past few days on this forum and surfing the web as well to learn about sub and DIY. I have a big headache now!!!
I know nothing about sub and audio components! What I know is I do not want to spend $$$ at the local electronic store for a sub that obvioulsy cost a few $ to build. Ending on a site like yours gave me the thrill to build the sub myself. It seems this way I would get quality equipment for a fraction of the cost at the store, plus the satisfaction to build something myself.
My room is appr 28' X 16' X 9' ( +/- 4000 ft3). Main use is for home theater. I have NHT speakers (front, center, rear) and an Onkyo TX-SV70PRO that I got someting like 12 years ago. Use as been very light and equipment is working very well (I think!)
I am not looking for anything fancy and do not need to go wild. I just want a decent stuff to enjoy a good movie or cd. I am looking at spending $300 - $350 or so
1) What size sub sis suitable? 10, 12 or 15"?
2) Can you recommend a combination of face ampli and speaker?
3) Can you recommend an enclosure type?
4) Can you recommend an enclosure size?
Thanks in advance for your help.
