    Hi

    After having done a lot of reading I want to build a diy sub. Here in South Africa finding 8ohm drivers is very hard but I have come across these. What do you guys think? will they be any good and in what type of enclosure should i put them to get the lowest F3. Size of the box i will be putting 2 of either of these 2 subs in doesn't matter. What can you guys recommend for a sub that goes EXTREMELY LOW and LOUD for movies but will also satisfy for the occasional dance/hip-hop listen?
    All help will be appreciated.
    Regards
    Chris

    Chris,

    Unfortunately neither of those drivers will go extremely low for movies. They really seem better suited as woofers in a 3way live audio speaker cabinet.

    Yeah, those are not subwoofers. Even car subs would be better than those. If you cant find any good DIY sub drivers, have you considered www.svsubwoofers.com ? They are not a lot more expensive than a DIY sub.

    "They are not a lot more expensive than a DIY sub."

    They might be if you count shipping to South Africa.

    Since 8ohm drivers are hard to come by, what rating(s) is plentiful that have a low Fs?
