Ok, I think I have come up with a plan to utilize more space, Just have to convinc e the boss that it would be the best, decor-friendly option. Which in fact, it would be. I could build a furniture-style cabinet that would rplace a small piano bench that we currently have in our living room. Wouldnt be much bigger and would actually be nice looking the way I plan on building it. Ive been thinking about this all day, ha ha. Anyway given the space I have to work with, The largest INTERNAL dimensions i can do-not including bracing/port/driver displacement- is right at 5 cu.ft. Now, given that, I would like to MAYBE step things up a notch and go with an adire tempest, lol. Seeing as how I can get a tempest kit (tempest & 300W bash) from http://www.creativesound.ca/details....el=TEMPESTB300
and come out at around $300 after shipping plus a lttle more for materials. Or should I stick to the above design and increase the box size? Thoughts? A little extra money came my way because I sold my current HTIB sub for ~$100! With the tempest, I wouldnt really need to upgrade my sub when I eventually build a dedicated home theater, maybe just change the box to a bigger one with a lower tuning. If I went with a 12" for now, then Id eventually have to shell out more money for something like the tempest. Why spend the money twice you know? Of course I could keep the cost down by going with a 12 vs. a 15, but I assume the price difference would be negligable compard to what the 15 would bring,right? What Im seeing, the Dayton Hi-fi 12 + 300W Bash= $279.XX + Shipping. Tempest kit AFTER shipping $277.
