DIY

And spend the rest of the money on the box. (maybe have a cabinet maker build it for you... there`s like full instructions on that page)

Re: Sunfire - I don`t know how it performs, but I`m sure it`s a safe bet. It`s one of those reliable brands IMHO. I`d probably put my money on the Legend, HSU, eD, and SVS all outperforming it though.

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Just got a parts express catalog. They have a special on titanic sub with 1000w amp for $700, don't know if it includes shipping but if it did, it wouldn't be much more than your list of products...20" cube, 15" driver, and parametric eq built in.

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Hey Andre, you didn't say what went boom. I take it the whole thing is toasted? I ask because we could probably find a replacement driver for much less than an entire sub, that is if you have a good cabinet and amp still in existence. Likewise if the driver is good and the amp fried.

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Old Yamy YST-300, not worth saving imho. Not really interested in DIY (not that handy, broken back from military). I have recieved emails from both HSU and ED. HSU is about $60 more shipped the the ED. I have yet to find a review on the A5S-300 and how it is with movies since that is what 98% of its job will be. Nothing in town I would think would come close to either for $700 Canadian. No idea about the Sunfire. Searched the internet for any other company in that price range too no avail.

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Hsu has lesser amp but balanced with larger, ported enclosure

eD has stronger amp but smaller sealed enclosure, I'm guess the amp has eq to boost the low end to achieve flat output.

Some say they prefer sealed for sound quality, others are indifferent. You'll likely end up with an excellent sub whichever way. Personally, if I went with a retail sub, I'd ask about b-stock (returns, slight blemishes) as it can save you money. If I got a deal like that I'd go with any of the subs you mentioned in your post.

Personnally i'd go for the ED, I think that way mostly cause i've seen first hand the quality of there product as i have no experiance with owning any store bought or name brand subs other then Paradigm.

That makes me think, are the price of Paradigms cheaper there being that they are built in Canada?

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

"are the price of paradigms cheaper in Canada" I can get the DSP3100 for approx the same price the the HSU or ED.

On another note I had a thought last night....what if my sub is fine and my problem is either the cable or the recievers LFE output. Checking the cable is simple, try another one, however, how do you check if the LFE output is outputing properly?

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

You can check the output with a volt meter, maybe +- 1V. Otherwise, you could check the line/amp by connecting the sub's speaker leads to another speaker (be sure to turn volume low). A midrange speaker may not output much, but should get some low freq, especially if you set the crossover to 100 hz or higher.
