    Hi, I was just wondering if anybody thinks that the new subwoofer kit that partsexpress sells: the 15" TITANIC MKIII SUBWOOFER KIT (Part Number 300-764) is tough to beat for $688 shipped.

    Here are the stats on the Titanic MKIII woofer:

    Power handling: 800 watts RMS/1,100 watts max
    Impedance: 4 ohms
    Fs: 19.93
    Xmax 20.5 mm
    Sensitivity: 91.7 dB 2.83V/1m
    Vas: 7.79 cu. ft.
    Qts: .38

    Here are some stats on the sub amplifier:

    High power Class AB output stage
    Patented tracking downconverter power supply
    Full parametric bass EQ
    Phase reversal switch
    Auto On/Off
    Advanced soft clip circuitry
    Toroidal power supply transformer
    Power output: 512 watts RMS @ 8 ohms, 1024 watts RMS @ 4 ohms
    S/N ratio: 98 dB (A-weighted)
    Low-pass crossover: 30 - 200 Hz, 24 dB/octave
    Auto On/Off

    Given that the sub has to be about the same size of about 20" cube, it seems like it would be tough to beat this sub for $688 shipped.

    The only SVS in this price range and size is the PB1-ISD, but it seems the 15" titanic could beat it hands down in displacement and power.

    Right now I have 2 tempests... This sub will be for a friend who has a room that's about 17'L x 15'W x 8'h. I've heard good things about the Titanic driver and I predict it should sound similar to a small sealed tempest.

    Any thoughts before my friend gets one?

    oh, BTW I'd go DIY, but the box alone would cost $350 which is why I believe that this sub kit is a better route.

    This looks like a really nice kit! The driver is great (based on other Daytons) and the amp looks really powerful and flexible.

    Yes, but not necessarily in output. Tough to compare reflex and sealed designs. I'd guess it'd be close, though. I'd certainly go with the Dayton kit over any Velodyne.
