What is the best DIY kit (that will take me an hour of so) for an HT sub under $500?

Do you absolutely HAVE to have a built-in amp? (Blah!)


If not, my vote goes to a VMPS "smaller sub".

VMPS WEBSITE


12" Woofer, 12" tuneable P.R., true -3 dB response down to 24 Hz, and very, very smooth for music as well. You can't beat it. I've got a "Dedicated Sub" and a "Larger Subwoofer". Get the kit version and pretty much all you have to do is solder the speaker cables from the terminal board to the speaker terminals and stuff the cabinet with included insulation. Takes 20 minutes...


Kit with cabinet (what I described above) is $289 and the highly recommended (by me) "MegaWoofer" upgrade is $70. Throw in just about any old steady state amp and you've got a heck of a bargain that'll really move some air.

I'd say yes, but if you want to be sure, call VMPS. Brian Cheney, owner and designer, answers the phone himself 99% of the time. If you don't have an electronic crossover, order it with the passive crossover (just a few bucks and 1 solder joint more). When tuned properly, this sub is unbelievably smooth...
