    There are plenty of great subs on the market. SVS is popular with knowledgeable enthusiasts because they offer one of the highest (if not the highest) performance values in commercial OEM subs.

    With that said, DIY can't be beat for the $$, and is a lot of fun too. Basically you exchange sweat equity for $$. If you are a first time DIY'er, I strongly recommend sticking to a set of plans from a manufacturer for "can't miss" proven results.

    I would look very hard at the "SBB4" or "Adire Alignment" box plans for the 15" Tempest. Everything is laid out for you, and you can even buy inexpensive kits that include all the small parts needed for a turn-key installation.

    Go here for details:

    Also, something similar (in enclosure volume) would probably work well with the Stryke AV-15 MkII. Check with John Janowitz at Stryke to be sure, though, as the t/s parameters probably differ somewhat on the two drivers and I doubt they would give the same exact results. Styke does provide some suggested alignments for the AV-15, but no actual plans AFAIK.

    Good luck in your quest for affordable great bass!

    Regards,

    Ed

    Hey Bernard;

    If you send your shipping address I can do a shipping quote for you ([email protected]) but though shipping to Manila isn't cheap it definitely wouldn't triple the price of the sub.
