    Hey all,

    I can't get the search engine to work on HTF, and am thinking about getting an original SVS 12" driver for an inexpensive sub coupled with the new $65 sub amp from PE.

    Could somebody post the original T/S parameters or approximations for that driver, and/or opinions would it work in a smaller box?

    I'm looking to build a smallish box, mostly for music and some movies. I was going to build sealed, but can't remember if this driver will work well for that or not.

    If somebody can give me a quick answer I would appreciate it. I haven't been able to get the search engine to work all day, always comes up with "no results". . .

    thanks!

    Wes

    The original SVS driver models EXTREMELY close to the Adire Shiva. Most people use the Shiva T/S specs when modeling enclosures for the original SVS drivers. I beleive the Shiva may have 1 or 2 mm more excursion, but they're pretty much interchangable when doing calculations.

    You may want to consider the $89 250watt plate amp from MCM. More than double the power, which is a fairly noticable increase, for only $25 more.

    Good luck with your project [​IMG]

    I checked, and the MCM amp is now out of stock with an 110 day lead time. This sub project is a gift for a small apartment room paired with some little TB W3-871 home theater setup, so I don't need a ton of output. I also need it to be quite small.

    I'll probably build a smallish Q .67 or so sub with this amp and the SVS driver (if I get it) and plan on some room gain to bring up the bottom a bit. I'm aiming more for music than HT with this one. . .

    Thanks for your reply-

    Wes

    Dayum, that's a long time. I just sold two of those puppies on Ebay, too. I didn't realize they would be so popular.
