Alright guys, I'm new here, so be gentle So here's my question. I'm planning to build a sub for my dorm room fairly soon. The construction should be no problem, as my dad is going to help me. I am planning on building a box with internal dimensions of 15x15x15. (I might be able to pull off 16x16x16...if it's necessary to get a good sound). SO I've emailed a few companies asking for opinions on what driver/amp combo to use and have certainly gotten a variety of answers. I think I've narrowed it down to 2 combos though. I am thinking either the Shiva with a Rythmik 350 amp....OR a DPL12 with a Parts Express 250 WAtt amp. (These combos are based on price if you didn't notice) So the guy at Adire said the DPL12 is an upgrade over the Shiva, but if I go that route, we are talking less power. You can see the predicament. So, suggestions? Keep in mind, I'm a newbie, so if you're going to go into detailed technical explanations, try to put it in laymen's terms (or at least link me to a website that does ) Well, thanks, hope you guys can help me out.
