  1. Matching sub woofer for CSS SD12 ?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I built a ported sub woofer a few years back using the CSS SD12. I would like to build another one, but the SD12 is no longer available. Any suggestions for another subwoofer to match closely to the SD12, would be greatly appreciated. The specs for the SD12 are: Fs 23.3 Hz Re 3.6 ohms Qts .387...
  2. SD12 or SDX12 or TRIO12

    A confusing plethora of 12inch subs here! What are the differences in real life? Does there really need to be that many? Why would a user pick one over the other?

    Creative Sound Solutions

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Anyone have any experience with CSS's SD12? I'm pretty sure I'm going to get that and the 300 watt bash plate amp, slap them in a 2-3 cubic foot (sealed) enclosure for my 11*12 room. Right now I've got a 240 watt dayton, with a Mach5 MAW15 in a ~5.5 vented tuned to 14-15 Hz. I'm tired of...
