    I've got a shiva in a sealed box with an AVA250 amp, should I scrap the box and build a sonosub?
    they seem so popular, would the performance increase be orth it?

    It's just an effective, easy-to-build enclosure. There's no performance increase inherent in its use, although a cube would have to be pretty strong to match a Sonotube's effectiveness.
    If, by "Sonotube", you mean building a ported sub as most do, then that's something else.

    I agree with Jack, with one caveat: if the size of your current box is not optimum for the driver, then yes, you'd benefit from building a sonosub. However, you could always make a larger rectilinear box too, the sonosub would just be a little easier. If you've already modeled the box you have now, or bought it from Adire, then i'd stay with what you have. If not, I'd recommend trying the cad program they have on Adire's site to model a different enclosure. Good luck
