    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...

    im guessing shipping a shiva/tempest driver to norway is out of the question?

    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.
