    I'm looking for a good 10 inch subwoofer for a new project.
    I made a sub about a year ago and i'm looking for a bit more extension and cleaner bass.
    The first project i did was i bought a Coustic HT810 10" driver from parts express which cost me a mere $39.
    here is the picture of the driver

    Anyways i put that in a 2.00 cubic foot enclosure which is 56 liters and i tuned it to 35Hz and fed it 70 watts into 4 ohms and used some equlization for a bit more low end.
    Well i loved that sub it sounded awesome the bass was tight pretty clean had some pretty good output and the low end was great to.
    But the sub quickly droped off around 32Hz but the sub was great for dvd's & music.
    But now it's time to upgrade i'm looking for a verry good 10" driver that would sound good for small home theater applications.
    I'm looking for a sub that can be tuned to about 25Hz or 30Hz and be placed in a 2 cubic foot vented enclosure.
    i'm also checking out some plate amps so the sub might be fed 250 watts into 4 ohms or 150 watts into 4 ohms.
    Any suggetions on a verry good 10" driver for under $140.
    After i'm done postin this message i'm gona look for some 10" drivers & post them here and you guys can say if there any good thanks.

    I just got a e-mail from Paul from parts express and he said that the Dayton 12" DVC subwoofer would sound awesome in a sealed 1.2 cubic foot enclosure with a 150 watts driving it.
    He said he would rather have that then a Dayton Titanic T1000 in a 2.00 cubic foot enclosure with a tune of 25Hz and a 150 watts driving it.
    What would be better for home theater applications ?
    And what would go deeper & louder ?

    I don't blame you Jack , I could have swore I just saw this post a few days ago [​IMG]
    Eddie, I don't think you could go wrong with either drivers you mentioned , but don't forget about the Shiva , it is a great driver made by a great company. I have had several of them and have been very satisfied with their performance in boxes from 2cuft on up to 8cuft.

    Eddie is my dad who lives in Thunder Bay ontario Canada.
    My name is Tyler Dan Jonczyk i'm 16 he's 45 he is looking to build a powered subwoofer using a good quality 10 incher.
    Dad [​IMG] hehe try going with the dayton 12" dvc in a 1.2 cubic foot cabinet with lots of fill.
    Doing that you will get tight bass verry good output for the size of cabinet and the power you will be using.
    You should also be able to reach bass down to 25 to 30Hz.
    This would be much better then a Dayton Titanic in a 2 cubic foot enclosure with a 30Hz tune
