    Im toying around with ideas on making a small sealed sub with some high excursion/power driver. Im in a dorm and am going to be moving around every year probably so I want something small to take around as well as something that wont take much space, but can still kick ass. Ive been happy with my sealed shiva and my vented dayton at home but both are still a little bit big for my liking (well the sonotube at home is 12cuft so thats a little more than a "bit" big, and the shiva is in a 2.5cuft sealed box in my dorm and its managable, but id like to get smaller.) Im thinking around 1~1.5 cu ft, and feeding it with some 1KW+ amp. Can anyone give me some suggestions on drivers and boxes to look at?

    thanks!

    Has anyone tried it yet? It seems like many people were playing around with the idea, and Jon bought a bunch of the 1203s...

    Jon bought a pair of 1203's. Their current mission is serving as sculptural accents to the living room decor. (aka paperweights)
    He's actually working on a low buck MT or MTM (builders choice) project that can be expanded into a large but moderately priced line array. This was something he promised to do about 5yrs ago.

    those are some pretty nice paperweights [​IMG]. What about the Adire Brahma?(sp) It seems a little too expensive but how would that work in such an application?

    I would think it would need much more space than 1.5 ft^3.

    If you want big bass from a small sealed sub, the only thing I can think of is a velo HGS. Stick with the BP 1203 in a small sealed sub. I think you can get it to perform well is a small box if you have lots of power like Jack said.
