    Hi, I built a sealed box (~100 l] for my LMS Ultra about a year ago. I recently bought 2 TC Sounds VMP 18 passive radiators and now I'm thinking my next build. Should I use both PRs for the LMS Ultra or is one sufficient? I'm planning on buying one more LMS Ultra when one is available (they...

  4. psi car audio PR mounting.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hey guys. This is a shot in the dark but does anyone know how to mount psi car audio 18" passive radiators? The reason I ask is because the rubber gasket that is used has mounting holes that are smaller then the holes in the actual basket assembly. I feel that there should be an insert of some...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Purchased a JL 13w7 for a new project. Been searching the forums and haven't seen to many diy builds with them so figured I'd reach out and look for some input. Thoughts are to go dual PR's.

    Hi Shack members.. I have decided to take on a 12” SDX PR build and thought I would share it over here at the Shack. It’s a design I never have built before or listened to for that matter, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. I’m going with the 12” SDX dual PR build because...
  9. PR ?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Have you considered using 1 or 2 TC Passive Radiators in your design...some of the reviews of PR's are very promising... I will be building my new TC sub with this combo and will probably use the Crown XTi 4002 XTi 2 Series Power Amplifier as it has the power range I want and the sub harmonic...

  14. Sealed or PR for this room

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've got my system in a room that measures 5x7 metres and I'm still tossing up what sub design is best and most value for money. Priority is for music as the floorstanders I want to match with are good music ones, but I'd still like to be able to hit the low 20 Hz level to get that "Wow!"...

Now that Exodus Audio (or whatever the company was in WA) is out of business where can I get the 15" PR's...
