    Since I'm too impatient to wait for the Shiva, how about a 15" Tempest in a 24" wide, ~29" high tube? What port size would you recommend?

    If my calculations are correct, that results in a 214L enclosure before you subtract driver and port displacement. Have you taken a look at the Tempest applications files on the Adire website? It tells you everything you need to know.

    Yes, that's why I wanted to double check and see if anyone has done it like this.

    Maybe shoot for a 5ft^3-6 ft^3 sealed Tempest sub.

    What Hz range would the sealed one provide? I'm hoping for sub 20 [​IMG]
    Hmm now Adire has sold out of Tempests.....

    If you corner loaded it, you'll come close to the mid-20's, but with authority and a shallower dropoff in the bass, and you'll get a little bit better (tighter) transient response for music. (Of course, this is making the best out of the given volume constraint).

    Pete Mazz loves his sealed Tempest subs, he's got 2 of them, each in around 5 ft^3 sealed enclosures.

    Pete's been great at answering my endless questions on another HT board [​IMG]
    I've decided to go with the PE MKII 12" w/ 1 4" flared port
    in a 24"w ~25"h sonotube.
