    That can be built by an online DIY company for under $1500 dollars? I don't have the time or patience to build my own.

    I want something that can reach the depths of hell (10hz) with authority and can kick out high spl (105-120dB's if possible) in the 25-65hz range.

    Is there such a sub?

    We are in the process of emailing back and forth.
    I like dealing with people that tell me I will build you what "you want" and it will meet "all of your needs & expectations".
    I tried to make it easy on him by telling him I have no size or power limitations.

    Brian Bunge :

    Hey, I'm curious. I would like to know what you have in mind given BrianKR's budget, goals, and constraints. Twin malstroms ? Tumolt ?

    Just a suggestion, if high dynamic output is the goal, I would look to do everything possible to use a pair of Tumults. I realize this pushes the budget some, but this cuts the power to each driver in 1/4 and total requirements in half for the same output. Likewise, since ultra low frequency output is desired, I would see what could be done with multiple PRs, and maybe even plan on "under PR'ing" the design for the full capabilities of the Tumult while better matching into the room and still gaining the benefits of having a pair. 4 15" PRs really loaded up might just do the trick in a larger box size. Be sure to look at the output capability, not just the if you can overdrive them.

    Of course the other option which should certainly be considered is an infinite baffle. Lots of potential savings on woodworking, more money for drivers, and much better sub-16Hz performance depending on what avenue you choose with drivers.
