    I want to build a ported sub(s) using the 1203 or 1503.
    I've seen the AS-15 using the HE-15, that would be as large as I would want to go. The 1803 looks cool, but I don't have a freight elevator in our house.
    What about buiding a stereo pair using the 1203 vs a single 1503?
    Thanks, Kevin

    Well start by reading this thread if you haven't already done so. It contains pretty much everything you'd need to know to build either a sealed or ported 1203

    2-1203's are a little expensive, when compared to a single 1503.

    Thomas,
    thanks for the reply. It looks like the 81L tuned to 20hz is the ideal enclosure. Having to use a 4" port 25" long would make the cabinet rather deep. If I build a cabinet that deep, I might as well build a single AS-15. Would the 1503 work ok in your AS-15 enclosure?
    I will use a Adcom GFA555 for a amp.
    Kevin

    Yes the 1503 is a drop in for the AS-15 cabinet. It will also work fine as a downward firing driver in a ported tube sub.

    Regardless of the cabinet used be sure to get a pair of the AeroPort 6" flares.

    Jon says that the AutoCAD plans for the AS-15 enclosure will be completed within a week. There will be a download link on the Klone-Audio webpage when he completes them.
