  2. shiva x versus def tech super cube 1?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I need a comparison please. I am wondering how the shiva-x will compare to a def tech super cube 1? The shiva x will be in a 2.5 ft3 enclosure with a PR tuned to 20hz. The shiva x will be run with a 500 watt amp. I am guessing the shiva x will have more output down low but how else do they...

  5. 26" Cube, Maelstrom-X dual PR build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I figure I would make a thread with my build. I made a variation on SturmMDs build and made it 26" so that I could center the PRs in the cabinet. I am using a Crown XS1200 to power this, 3kw at 4ohm mono. I have a Gen II Maelstrom-X, I had a Gen I, but it was defective and Kevin replaced it...
  6. 24" Cube - Sealed or PR?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have finally gathered all materials (sans MAL-X driver) to build a 24" cube (based on NEOdan's cutsheet).
