Someone is offering me a Dayton 15in DVC sub, with 250w Plate Amp, and in a ported encloser tuned to 23hz. Its made from 3/4in MDF with rollers on bottom. Laquered black with smoked glass top. Looks nice. He wants $300+ship. Is this a good deal? Apparently nothing is wrong with it.

Oh, would this be better than my Ported tempest + 240watt amp I was thinking of earlier? (A few threads back)

well, the tempest and the DVC are very close, i think the dvc has a bigger Vas, btu other than that theyre pretty similar. 300 us is too much, but if its 300 cad then its decent. I would reccomend buying hte tempest and the 240 watt amp and building your own sub though. Every room is different(not to mention tastes), so why would you use the same box?
Can your 450$(cad) sub hit 120db at 40hz?

Just the sub and the amp would run you $250 from PE. You say the cabinet looks good; I'm sure the builder has more than $50 in materials and time invested. Sounds like a good deal but I would find out what the shipping would be first.

I think its a pretty good deal... No mainstream products should come close the performance that will give for $300.

I think $300 is a good deal, you couldn't build it for less and you certainly couldn't buy anything remotely close for that price.

It really depends on how much time you have and your woodworking skills, if you have plenty of both then it's not half the bargain if you lack both.
