I've been modeling this sub to see its capabilities, for $139 this sub is going to be the new standard for value. :T
Yep a couple of designs up my sleeve to. Just need the time to knock them out.

Is $139/$144 a pre-order price or the standard price?

I gather from the kits this driver will handle/require 500W.

Hi,

Haven't decided on the regular price yet, likely US$149 but there may be some other combinations with attractive pricing. The spec sheet needs some more work including the power handling which is 350 watts RMS or 700 peak. The modelling for the kits is based on 500 watt plate amps.

Bob - I'm seriously considering the Trio12/PRx2 setup for my DIY sub. Would there be any problem in having the Trio12 in a downfiring config.?
It'll transfer just a little vibration into the floor. To help cancel that, you could buy 2 kits, have a front and rear driver, then twin side mounted drivers. That then means you can get a bigger amp! +6db FTW!:dumbcrazy:

In all seriousness, I've had a down firing sub in the past, Klipsch Sub12, and it did transfer more energy into the floor than I liked. Some people, however, enjoy it because it's like having a free tactile transducer.:hsd: But it's really not that big of a deal.

Recieved my kit today. Thanks Bob! The kit is of very good quality!

there is a big difference between cheap and value, this sub is definitely not cheap! I look forward to the build,, but mostly the improvement in my HT

thanks again.
