    Just wondering .. what kind of results could one expect mixing a tempest and a shiva.. tempest for very low extension, shiva for my accuracy... would there be too many problems with crossovers, wave cancellation or anything else?

    has anyone done this?

    Sounds like a lot of work for nothing...small drivers don't always make for "better" sounding subs. There are plenty of other factors that affect the sound of the sub and most aren't related to the physical size of the driver. If you want a fast sub design it to have a Q from 0.5 to 0.707 and it will sound great.

    Tempest is just as accurate as Shiva. Ask Dan Wiggins and also ask for unbiased input on this forum.
