    Does anyone have any experience with this subwoofer driver (it is offered at Madisound)? I am in the planning stage for my upcoming home setup and I am stumped on the sub setup... these NHTs are one of the few subs that can achieve an F3 of ~30Hz in a sealed box so they look promising. I would be using two of them if I decide to go that route.

    I also thought about the Dayton Titanic 1200, which I have used in car audio before. I no longer have the driver that I used but I do recall it being a very nice sub. But I wonder if the NHT may be an even better choice.

    I would prefer to stay sealed if possible since I have always been a big fan of sealed boxes and the benefits they provide.

    FYI the rest of the system plan looks like this so far:

    Sansui AU-517 Amplifier *
    RCA 5-Disc CD Player *
    Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra Curve

    80-200Hz
    2x 15" Eminence built midbass drivers (not stock models) *
    200-2.5kHz
    PHL 3451 10" Midrange Driver
    2.5kHz+
    Hi-Vi RT2-II Isodynamic Planar Tweeter

    -- I will be using the Optical out on the CD Player to utilize the DAC in the Behringer unit.

    * = I already have this equipment

    Any comments or suggestions on the setup would be appreciated!

    I will do a search, thank you for the links [​IMG]

    I plan to build the enclosure myself and the sub amp setup is undecided. I am looking at the plate amp offerings by Adire but also thinking about doing a DIY amp kit if I can get the PCB for the AV800 kit by Anthony Holton (no response to my e-mails yet).

    The Adire DPL-12 is my favorite sealed box woofer.

    Jack,

    I hadn't looked at that driver.. it also has a 30Hz F3. I will have to seriously consider that one! Thank you.

    Thanks Jack, you just helped me make up my mind on what subwoofer driver I will be using [​IMG] Now I need to decide if I want to spring for four of them or just use two of them... two should be sufficient for my home listening tastes and I can always add more later I suppose [​IMG]
