    I recently purchased this driver and have a PE 250 watt plate amp. Any reccomended enclosures? I was thinking of going with the sealed low Q design of 3.3 cubic feet. Any thoughts? Anyone have this driver and what are you using for an enclosure and what's your impression? thanks
    everyone.

    Jason,

    I have the same driver and amp. Since I am going to use this for 60/40 music/HT I am going to put it in a 2 cubic foot sealed box, stuff it with about 2 lbs of polyfill, and this should get me a Q of about 0.65. Without the stuffing it models with a Q of about .7

    Hope this helps.

    I'm about 80/20 HT/Music. Maybe even 90% HT. Would the lower Q be better for mid Q the best? I like accurate deeper bass.

    Jason,

    Got mine in a 101 liter with about 3lbs of stuffing. This combo really produces the goods, much better than the shiva that was in the same box.

    That's probably around a Q of .6 or maybe .577 isn't it?

    Any other input? Maybe suggest an alignment for me? I'm just not sure what would work best with the driver. I'm thinking larger sealed. ??

    Based on your 90% HT needs I would go with the Shiva EBS alignment (142.5 liters, 18.1 hz tune) found on Adire's website.

    So you can use the Adire design exactly and just pop in the Titanic driver instead of a shiva? Are there any adjustments that would need to be made? thanks

    The Titantic mkII will work as an alternative, no adjustments needed.
