    should I make this sub?

    I had a 12" IDMAX built for my home audio. the box was sealed. It played so damn low, that i ended up swapping subs to a IDQ12 v3. But dont let anyone tell you an IDmax wont be a good home sub. its pretty damn impressive. Just make sure you put a good amount of power to it.

    All component video cables created equally?

    SVS subs versus any other brand

    The SVS is a great HT sub but not to musical in my personal taste. Try going with a Velodyne SPL or DD series. Another great sounding sub is the James EMB-1200. www.tmrmzine.com/ht20052.JPG
