    Hey guys, Im thinking about taking my first plunge into DIY. Since all the Avalanches are gone I need another recomendation for some. I would rather not get the atlas or tempest suggestions cause I would alway have that "what if" question about the avalanche/tumult. I would love a tumult but they have gotten too expensive for my tastes. The box im wanting to build would fit into my front corner at a kinda triangle shape(think 45deg. straight edge). I figure with the dimensions it would give me about 10 cubic ft to work with, although I could always limit the internal volume by sealing off part of it if I needed to. Im gonna try this box shape because I figure I can butt it up to the corner pretty flush & paint it the same color as the walls & it wouldnt stand out like a 10cubic ft black box. I would prefer an 18" but if you think a 15" in that size would be plenty low & loud, ill go with that.

    The Dayton Titanic subs are excellent. 2 of the 15" wired in series in a 10cu.ft. box with a 4"x7.5" port would hit 106dB with only 3mm excursion on 15W of power and have a roll off that should match the gain of a large room nicely assuming the amp has no boost.

    A step up from the Titanic in quality and price would be the Soundsplinter RL-p 15". Another thing to consider would be multiple 12's in your large enclosure.

    The OAudio TC2+ drivers are a great choice. The new Exodus drivers from Acoustic Visions are another choice. If you can wait a little while, the new drivers from Ascendent Audio sound very promising. There is always the "standard" recommended drivers (Dayton, Adire, Peerless XL/XXLS, etc.)

    Bryon,

    I am interested in that deal. How long have you had the AV15's? Is that the Sampson amp that SVS sells?
