    Looking at the driver recommendations of the ESP website, a Tempest seems to be a pretty good choice for a LT. Are there any projects on the net using a sealed Tempest, an LT and a cabinet around 50-60 litres?

    I don't know of any projects with those specific parameters, but it should work pretty well. I'm going to use my Tempest first with my LT, but in 5 ft^3. 60 liters is very small (Qtc=~.9) and will require lots of correction/boost depending on Fc/Qc, so you can approach Pe at fairly low volumes and may experience some power compression. Probably be an extremely nice sub for much-less-than-reference levels.
    Have you plugged your numbers into the spreadsheet?

    I have done a bit of research and have decided that i am better off with a Shiva in a 35litre, with a simple bass boost of 12dB at 10Hz, this will yield a pretty flat response and deep in room.

    Sounds interesting, just go easy on the volume.

    What does go easy on the volume mean? Less then full volume? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Putting a 10db boost at 10hz puts you in some serious danger of bottoming the sub. I'd be cautious.
