    Has anyone uses Clarions 32" sub (SRW8000) for a home theater. I have heard a few in cars but never in a home. Just looking for feedback, I could get one fairly cheap, Wondering if it would be worth my time.

    The T/S params should tell most of the story.

    What are they?

    All I could find was Qts: 0.4, Fs: 17, Vas: 312.9 and that Vas number seems suspiciously low to me...

    And how cheap is fairly cheap?

    It would be real interesting in a 100cu-ft box with 4 8" ports each 13" long.

    Hmm, 10L of Vd from a Carion 32" sub or 10L of Vd from a pair of Tumults or 4 Tempests. I wouldn't have to think very hard about those choices.

    Dustin,

    We never said the sub was practical. I myself want to see what the Resonant Engineering/Adire 24" ends up like myself.

    I think I'd have to hear/feel it before I could make that call Allen. [​IMG]

    The Calarion is only goodfor 60hz or lower and down.
    It needs really strong midbass.
