    Are these subs any good for HT because I have heard there 12 inch sub is better than the Adire audio shriva for car use and I was wondering how they would be for ht.

    Like Jack said. Looks good except for the Fs is too high and the Xmax is less (and not clear if they are mentioning Xmech or Xmax; they say Xmax, but a lot of car manufactures quote Xmech in that field).

    That is Xmax not Xmech and the 15 is only $105 and it should have more displacement then the shriva for less $$.

    Your linked driver:

    Vd- 1.38L; Fs- 27hz; Cost- $105 (edit, don't know anymore)

    Dayton DVC12"

    Vd- 1.53L; Fs- 21.7hz; Cost- $105

    The Sd is actually lower than stated on PE, but the Xmax is actually higher so it evens back out to that Vd or a smidgin lower. The Fs was also DUMAXed lower than 22hz. Essentially it is a Shiva clone.

    Shiva

    Vd 1.52L; Fs 21hz; Cost- $125 including shipping

    The prices for the Dayton and Shiva are from Acoustic Visions.

    Edit, oops, just noticed you said the 15 not the 12. The 15 has a Qts that is getting a little high.


    The 15

    Vd- 2.3L; Fs- 25hz; Qts- 0.49; Cost $105

    Dayton DVC15"

    Vd- 2.44L; Fs- 20hz; Qts- 0.378; Cost $125

    Because of cabin gain, low Fs is not as important for a car sub. An F3 in the 40's will be flat to 20Hz in most cars. Small cabinet size is more important.

    I wouldn't say not as good, but intended for different purposes.
