    Are any of you guys formilliar with the Audax PR330M0?
    A company her in Norway has a sub-kit wich includes this woofer, and I was wondering if you guys and girls had heard good things about it.
    Here are a picture and som facts about the kit:
    [​IMG]
    Design: linear bass reflex
    Volum: 92 liters net
    Impedans: 8 ohms
    Frequency range: 27-110Hz
    Sensitivity: 93dB (2,83V/1m)
    Measurements: 35*57,4*70cm (w*d*h)
    Weight: 46kg
    What do you think?
    Regards,
    Oivind

    Oivind,
    I've used the PR330 before. Nice woofer, with a very "clean" breakup. But as Thomas cautions, it DEFINITELY is not a subwoofer! Doesn't go deep at all, and can't generate a lot of SPL down low. But for PA type apps, it's a great choice.
    If you want high efficiency and more Xmax, I'd consider the Eminence Kappa 15LF. About the same cost and efficiency, but able to play a bit lower and louder.
    Neither is going to get you bone-rattling output down around 20 Hz, however.

    Thanks Guys.
    Looks like I will look for another kit with a different driver.
    But the choices here in Norway is not great.
    I may have to import one...

    Well, it is not out of the question.
    But there are taxes and freight costs to be considered.
    The tax in Norway are 24%!
    I am in the window shopping phase.
    Just seeing what my options are...

    Oivind!
    I ordered my Shiva from Ls-Wagner in Germany about a year ago. The total cost incl. shipping was 1700Skr(170USD.) to Sweden. I don't know if this is cheaper than to buy from Adire direct. There is no driver that can compete with the Shiva here in Europe that I know of, perhaps Peerless XLS12.

    I've had my 2 Shiva's sent to a friend in US. He unpacked them and removed the invoice and shipped them as a gift to us in Tanzania. No VAT, no tax. I assume the same procedure is ok for Norway. Oivind, don't you have a friendly friend or relative in US?

    Oivind,
    Shipping a Shiva to Norway would be $37.16 for surface, or $64.24 for airmail. Tempest would be $5-$6 more, because of the extra weight. Surface takes 7-10 weeks, air takes 2-3 weeks.
    Magnus,
    I'd love to be your friend! Problem is, Uncle Sam (nor the EU) wouldn't be my friend then, if I tried to skirt export laws... [​IMG]

    Guys,
    No close friends in the US. But it looks like Shiva is an option worth looking in to.
    After reading only good things about it here in the forum, I might have to get one. (Shiva winnig again:)
    At least it should not be hard to get some help building a decent sub!
    Thanks!
    Øivind

    Oivind, if you decide to get a driver from Adire Audio, I recommend buying the Tempest. For the little extra it will cost for the price of the driver and the shipping, it is like getting 2 Shiva's worth of performance for a lot less than twice the price.
