    To all,

    In addition to the new sub amps at Parts Express, they are offering premade sub cabs for sale. Here is the link

    http://www.partsexpress.com/webpage....44436&desc=ASC

    1 cubic foot is $100
    2 cubic feet is $126
    3 cubic feet is $149

    Note, there are no cutouts for woofer, amp, etc.

    The 3 cubic feet enclosure has me peaked my interest. I'm planning on building a tempest or av15 but I do not have any of the tools yet. Figure a circular saw and router will cost at least that much money maybe I should go with a pre-built box and use an av12.

    However, does anyone have an idea how well an av15 or tempest would work in 3 cu.ft., given ~350 watts? The sub would be used approx 75% HT / 25% music.

    Thanks in advance. My modeling skills are in their infancy [​IMG]

    Good point Ronnie. To me, PE has always had high shipping charges. I think there's some profit built in.

    LanceEAR: The new sub cab prices are very good. Why not call and ask for the shipping charge to your zip code?

    George,

    Looks like you're all set if you can get ahold of a router to cut the driver and amp holes.

    Brian,

    Oh, not necessarily. I am willing to pay more for better quality and to help out someone I know versus some faceless corporation.

    Hank Frankenberg: Shipping charges are not an issue as I have family in Dayton (PE location) that are coming for a visit sometime next month [​IMG] They do not have much trunk space but I think they could squeeze it in there! I suppose I could borrow a router/jig saw from someone to make the driver cut out.

    I guess I have to learn how to use some of the modeling software. The problem is the few I've used always produce different results for the same driver/enclosure [​IMG]
