My suggestion would be the B-stock DIYSoundGroup buyout 15, but he better act FAST before they are gone...Hi all!
It's been awhile. I have been seriously enjoying my Adire kit-281s, JVC D-ILA projector, Tuba HT, oppo blu-ray and old-school Denon system for many years now. So long so, that I haven't had the urge to make any changes and have fallen seriously out of touch.
I could use some help giving advice to a friend.
He is constructing his basement and has some space left over in a built-in (stud and drywall) section of his room.
I thought it may be a great opportunity for a built in sub, sealed or ported - probably a 15".
He will be running a Denon 5805 as his receiver and has a pair of Adire KIT-281s as his front L & R.
Volume probably about 5 cubic feet.
I am looking for a recommendation for a 15" sub (12" possibly - if a 6 ohm DVC might run well off two channels of amp from the Denon) Otherwise, do you think a plate amp is best, and if so, which.
Total budget under $500 for sub and amp(if needed).
I super appreciate the help, and am eager to dig into the details once this thread stirs the speaker building files tucked way back in my aging brain.
