Dan's making the driver from the Sadhara available separately, ETA sometime in May. No idea on price, but he sent me a few specs:

Fs: 26 Hz
Qms: 5.1
Qes: 0.55
Qts: 0.5
Vas: 45L
Xmax: 27mm one way
Sd: 436 cm^2
Re: 2.6 Ohms

Looks pretty cool. No Le spec, but I'm guessing it's relatively low (~4mH) due to the XBL2 motor. 3ft^3/20Hz is an alignment Dan recommends, although I've never used a Qts that high in a reflex. Some pics and discussion can be found in this HTT thread .

The driver in the AV3 has a really high QTC and is used ported too.
without modeling it, that driver looks almost more like a car audio driver than the brahma 12.

It does look good in Dan's alignment, but has a small hump around 40Hz. Sealed under Qtc of .707 looks very good, too.
Wonder what the Sadhara alignment is.

From what I've seen, it should be in the ballpark of the Brahma 12.

FYI, the Sadhara sells for $1000. I don't know the exact internal volume, but the kicker on that one is the equivalent area of a 6.5" dia. port. Supposed to be pretty stout to 18Hz.
