    I'm sure lots of you are familiar with it. I'm wanting to build a sub and I'd like to clone this thing as close as possible. I already searched this forum for info on cloning PB1-ISD, but couldn't find any info.

    Basically I need the enclosure dimensions, port dimensions, and the driver/amp combo. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    I doubt you can copy them as the parts or their products are specific to them. You can however order from a number of other vendors like Stryke Audio, Adire Audio, and Parts Express to do what you want, and perhaps if done right even beat that particular model.

    Parts Express 300-794, 295-185, 268-352.

    All in a box made of 3/4" MDF, braced somehow, to equal an internal volume of 4 feet after subtracting port and driver displacement. Port (straight part)should be 14" long.

    Add a can of bed liner spray or two to match the finish...

    Good luck!

    For the minimal additional cost you might want to consider using the Stryke AV12 MKII. In the propper enclosure it would give something more similar to something inbetween the PB1+ and a PB1 Ultra (if there were such a thing). An AV12 MKII in a 4 ft^3 box with an 18" long 4" diameter port would give you an F3 around 17.5hz with flat response. The rythmik 380 watt amp would be a great choice at not much more than the PE 272 watt amp and would be plenty for the AV12. The PE amp is well suited for the AV12 (that's what I use with mine) but the driver can handle more power easily.

    hope this helps [​IMG]

    No doubt. If size isn't an issue there's no reason not to go with a 15".

    [​IMG] Why is it that I suck at searching just this forum? Hell, I even posted in that thread.
