I've been out of the DIY theater world for awhile and thought I'd build a new sub with an Adire Audio Shiva I had lying around. I was looking to spend approximately zero dollars on this as I used stuff I had lying around, so here's how it turned out in comparison to the Dayton DLS-10 I was using...



The box is 6.5cu ft tuned to 18hz using a NAD C320BEE amp I had doing nothing feeding each coil 50 watts. I was pretty impressed what a 100 watts can do and no money invested. Seen a 20-25dB increase from 15hz-22hz.

This reignited the good ole feelings of building speakers...

Rather surprised myself considering it's the same amount of power as the DLS-10. Luckily the Shiva is very efficient, I designed this sub to utilize it's volume and port efficiency over power. Worked out surprisingly well.

I caught the bug indeed, good to be back in it!
