  2. What driver specifically is it? These could be the specs to a Lambda Acoustics driver, or to a Pyle. Specs are only part of the story...and sometimes they are over inflated. If it is a Lambda, then it is a good driver (thought theLE's are at 1/2 the price), but a Pyle is a pile.

    $150 is on the high side for Most 12's, but not all. it could be way underpriced if it is an Aura NRT (though the Xmax doesn't suggest that), or way over priced if it is a Pyle.

    Where did you go?

    What is the driver you posted the TS-prams for?

    Don't be shy, it dose not matter who makes the driver.
    Lets see what could be done with it if you have one, or maybe your just looking at drivers.
    Also the boys might be able to suggest possible alignments for it, or other driver alternitives/alignments for a certain type of performance you might be looking for.

    Regards
    Geoff

    Humm, For the money better woofs are out their to be had.

    Assuming the TS-prams are truly correct, cough, it's a bass maker. Doubt it was designed PA duty though.

    Thanks for the link. The guys got an interesting array of stuff. Primarly used Organ related goodies and then a raw sub and amp. [​IMG]

    Where in hell did you come up with the 2 Descent 10's?

    Regards

    Well about the MartinLogan 10's, i cant find specs for them and I really want to build a sub box for them but I dont want to pay to have something built that wont sound good. any suggestions? I do know they are dang good but right now they are in an old hatchback car sub box and i have to keep them at low levels or they sound like !#$#@!


    And I didnt mean that the above mentioned speaker was a Public Adress I meant Parts Express. hopefully that clears things up.

    The driver you posted is the Titanic. It is the original version (not the mk. II) and is still sold by Parts Express. It was designed as competition for the NHT 1259, which at the time was one of the only long-throw woofers available. There are certainly better subwoofers available today for the same or less money. It was designed mainly for sealed enclosures like the NHT. Take a look:

    Hope this helps...
