    OK, I have excellent brains(talking about my system) But lack in the speaker dept.

    I have an Okyo 575X Reciever

    A pioneer DV333 DVD player

    Everything runs good except my Piece of CRAP AIWA sub. It wont work anymore.

    I need a sub fast and BAD. Only problem is for the money, I canf find anything that interest me.

    So, do any of you make subs on the side etc. Do you have a DIY sub for sale?

    I'm not sure how much you all charge.

    ORRRRRRRRRRRR can you recommend me to some places to learn to make my own sub.

    I'm familiar with box designs etc. I've made my own CAR Audio boxes. But as far as what amp to buy, power supply, drivers etc. I'm clueless.

    Visit Acoustic Visions. Kent is a regular on this BBS and builds DIY subs for almost nothing. He's currently working on my 142.5L monster and has even been sending me images of the work in progress (very cool). There's lots of styles to choose from, you should check it out.
    Edit:
    hahahaha![​IMG] Martice beat me to it.

    HI Jerry. How's it going? I know you're licking your chops just thinking about that monster you have coming soon. I can't wait for you to see the attack scene in Pearl Harbor because I doubt that you'd have a house afterwards with that monster you have.

    Ruben,
    Go to www.partsexpress.com, and pick up a 12" DVC subwoofer (currently $100 IIRC) and a 300-794 250W plate amp (might still be $130). Build yourself a 1.25cuft sealed box, and away you go. You'll be up and running again in no time. Later, when you have more time, IF you feel the need for more bass, you can research a little and build a new enclosure with the sub/amp that you just bought!

    I would have liked to put in my $.02 on this subject.. but I've already spent it on another thread. [​IMG]
    Anyway, I just wanted to say... I think building a subwoofer is the easiest as far as audio projects go. Once you've established the enclosure size for your driver, you pretty much have free reign (sp?) to do what you want.
    I built this sub with the cheapest parts I could find. I expected it to sound bad, but I was thoroughly impressed with the sound. It out performs the one-note thumpers I hear at Best Buy.
    Just buy a decent driver and a decent amp, and build a decent box, and you will be impressed.

    I must agree that if you have the ability to put a DIY sub together it's a no brainer to go that route. However, I needed a sub in the worst way and didn't have the room (apt. dweller)nor experience so that's why I went with Kyle at Acoustic Visions because I still have a sub that's tuned to 21HZ for a little more than $300.00.

    Once again, if you have the space and ability I say go for the DIY sub because no other company is going to give you the amount of performance you get with a DIY sub for the money and I'm sure I have total backing on this statement.

    Any companies that sell prefab sonosub sytems? I emailed Acoustic Vision, and I would like to see if there are any other places that do it? (Aside from SVS. A TAD bit out of my budget!)
