  1. Shiva X2 Enclosure

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Running a Shiva X2 single 4ohm right now in a 2cuft box. Looking at getting more output and perhaps deeper extension. Would like to run it in one of the flat pack enclosures like this one http://www.diysoundgroup.com/ported-subwoofers-1/4-ported-sub-flat-pack.html I can't find any of the...
  2. Cut sheets and model for Shiva ported build?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been searching everywhere thinking this is such a common driver that there should be existing plans out there. I am looking for something around 6 cubic feet, with two 4" precision ports. I am planning on driving it with the 500w OAudio plate amplifier, but may just go with an external...
  3. Exodus Shiva II and Tempest II

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I recently assembled two subs. The first was a Shiva II in a 3cf enclosure with a 15" passive radiator (TC Sounds). The enclosure is a pre-built one from PE. It is tuned to 16 Hz. I use a miniDSP to equalize and for a high pass filter at 18Hz. I am very impressed with the results. The...

  5. My Shiva Build Project

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi all, I recently bought an O Audio Bash 500 amp from the USA and a Shiva-X2 from my local audio Distributor for my home audio system. I'm following the suggestion of Exodus Audio & building a 3 cu ft enclosure - tuned to 22Hz. As no-one really wanted to assist me in a box design (with sheet...
  6. DSR7997 First Build - 12" Shiva X

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Here is my first build. I am using a 12" Shiva X that I picked up for next to nothing and an Elemental 500 Watt amp that I picked up as a b stock item. The box is 18X18X36 and was inspired by Sonnie's Pulse sub design. I didn't want to spend too much until I learn a little bit off of the first...
  7. Littlemike's Shiva Tapped Horn Build Thread

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    OK, here it is. I have a ton going on in addition to the sub builds right now, but I really wanted to get this posted up and let everyone know the results of what I have been working on. I'll cut right to the chase. Modeled is red. Actual is blue. I offset the data to match the curves at 30...
  8. 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...

  10. Shiva mechanical noise

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    If you were to use a Shiva in a push/pull arrangement with one driver reversed, ie cone facing in, magnet out, would there be any reason to expect any mechanical noise from the driver? I have not experienced it myself, but I have seen others mention it (not for Exodus drivers IIRC) as an...
  11. Shiva Tapped Horn

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Last year the design below was posted on diyaudio for a tapped horn with a LAB12 driver in this thread. With the Danley DTS10 being a bit of a craze at AVS at the moment, but not available forever, I was looking at this design again and wondering whether it would be worth building. The aspect...
  12. Shiva - X2 passive radiator build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hey I'm building this box to kevins recommendations from the exodus audio website, except I made the box 1/2" wider to allow for some more wiggle room for bracing. Also I used biscuit joints all around for the first time which created a nice strong box. Hopefully the sub will be up and...
  13. Box designs for the 12" Shiva, beginner

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was wondering did anyone have any plans or designs that will instruct on how to build or construct a box on this great driver. Like the dimensions, size ports I need and how long they need to be. I just want the box tune to 18hz or 20hz and maybe in nothing bigger than 6.3cu box size.

    is it possible to have a shiva x2 10" made or to just buy the motor?
  15. Shiva in 1.5 cf ported?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Is 1.5 cf ported too small for a Shiva in a car? I've been running the idea through my head of putting 2 Shivas in my car. My amp had to be sent back for repairs, so my Revo 10 is also out and I'm getting to upgrade bug. I designed a box that fits flush in my trunk that will be 3.194 cubic...

  18. Shiva Sub Set up

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    About 6 years ago I built a vented 142 liter sub enclosure using a 12" Shiva sub as per specs provided by Adire Audio. The sub has performed OK but I'm not convinced it is set up properly or it is performing as best it can. Does anyone have experience with this sub and design? It is powered...
  19. Elemental Designs E3.12 vs Exodus Shiva

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was thinking of dropping the gun on a shiva gen 1 before it's gone, but thought I'd look around at what other company's 12's offered. A rep at ED stated the E3.12 would compare with the Shiva, but I am skeptical as while it appears to model almost identically in a 3.6ft^3 20hz sonosub, unless...
  20. Shiva X or Dayton Titanic 15 sonosub

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am building a sonosub and I am having trouble deciding on a double firing Shiva tube or a single 15" Titanic 15. Any input would be great!
