I have an old Elemental designs e12k subwoofer (d4) in a .88 cu foot box. Is it possible to use it for home audio with decent results?


Here are the specs:

And how would a HT receiver power it?

I think in the right box it should work fine. Contact eD and they will tell you what size to build your box. You should float this idea on the forums at their website.


They sell plate amps for subwoofers also.

By the time you buy the proper AC to DC converter with the appropriate amperage output, you could have bought a proper plate amp with more controls.


The older 12k subs were either built by Destijl Engineering (the blue logo models) or TC Sounds (flat cone). Based on your T/S specs you have the flat cone which is really a TC2+ sub.


Why don't you post in our DIY section?

I've actually got 2 car subs, each in its own sealed custom box, and a passive crossover wired in series connected to my old Luxman 2-channel receiver's "B" speaker out. One is a 10-inch and the other's an 8-inch. The 10-inch hit pretty hard - good box.


I *think* I'm presenting the amp w/ a 2-ohm load. Sounds pretty good for what it is, running alongside my vintage Boston Acoustics A70 (8-inch 2-way) speakers in my 20'X10'X8' (1,600 cubic foot) sealed room. Great setup for my former 1-stall garage ManCave/cigar smoking/workout room.
