Hi- quick question:

I'm going to use my current sub stuff (Stryke SAE1204 and PE 250w amp) to build a sealed sub for music only, and plan to reuse the box I have with new drivers. It is a 3ft^3 box with 2 opposing 15" PR's weighted to around 1300 or so, and I can change the weight.

So, is my money better spent on:

a) Stryke AV12 and Rythmik 350w plate amp

b) Rythmik 12" servo sub kit (amp and driver)

I was getting the Stryke and Rythmik combo, but after reading the Rythmik site, wondered about the quality of the driver, since the intro special is a pretty good deal.

Rythmik audio servo kit

Thanks!

The best upgrade would be some room measurement equipment :) TrueRTA, wallin pre-ampII, and Panasonic WM-61A mic.

Next to that would be room treatmetns like bass traps.

I personally think that proper placement and room treatment are WAY too overlooked.

Thanks, guys-

Tony- I don't know if I'd get into measurement software for my home theater room. I do have a BFD running with a house curve dialed in. My room is fairly dead- not super big, with a large couch and wall to wall plush carpeting. I've thought about bass traps, but honestly I can't tell if I really need them right now.

It's a basement room on a slab, so I don't get any floor vibration from the sub, so sometimes it seems it's not having as big an impact. . .

I mostly thought of this upgrade as a way to prevent bottoming out on really any material at the levels I listen at. My biggest concern is being able to slightly widen the countersink hole to fit the AV12 since I have the woofer flush mounted. . .

Tony,

Not to call you unhelpful or anything, but the link you posted is to option number 2 in my first post. . .

Are you saying I should get both?:)
