2x10 or 1x12" UK Woofer suggestions please.
I am building something along the lines of this. A Bass cabinet to sit under an Mark Audio Alpair 7.3.

Full thread here

Either 1x12" or 2x10" per side, ala B&W 800.

I am looking for recommendations available in the UK. Ideally under 300 but open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

TIW250XS? W300? With that C to C spacing you'll want something that will go high enough though.

Or maybe Dayton RS270 if the price is right.

Volt or Beyma
Hi Studio A

A single 12 inch Beyma 12SW 1300 Nd is great option, I have one in an 80 litre sealed box and with a little bit of Eq I get really rich supple bass, esp upright bass, Cello and left hand piano, very natural and clear.
The driver is a real Pro unit and can handle a genuine 1,000 watts ( AES ) and as the driver is reasonably sensitive between 30Hz and 120 Hz you can get a good 100dB continuous with 110dB peaks in room low distortion bass out of a pair.

Also great home cinema effects but here you really need two seperate subs, located in corners to get down to room shaking 20 Hz depths.

Try a pair, you wont regret it!!
All the best

Beyma sounds good, just seems a little pricey. Worth the money?

These will be active with minidsp 2x8.

Mini DSP & Beyma
Mini DSP is just about the best value for money in audio, great combo with the Beyma as you can exploit the massive headroom and power handling of the driver.
You will need lots of power to avoid amp clipping, a good 500 watts of clean power is great, more is better!
Keep an eye on excursion if you start boosting more than about 6dB to 8dB low down. Good room measurement software and a mic are invaluable.

Fab Filter and Blue Cat Audio offer great deals on studio grade plugins.
JRiver with JPlay is also a stunning way to go, you can use the JRiver Eq based on room measurements with Fab Filter or Blue Cat.
Using JRiver is great, all 64 bit internal processing so no digital losses from volume and or DSP.

Based on this thread

These Alcone 10" seem pretty good, come in at 105 ea.

Any other thoughts on them?

I was just looking at these a couple of days ago. They look reasonable and pricing is comparable to the Visaton i mentioned, maybe a little cheaper. I have no idea of their quality though, since have not used Alcone before. They do look like am interesting proposition. The kits they're used in look good value too.

Hi Studio, seems we are building the same type of speaker :) No no no no no trademark :)
I have to get my trademark soon :D

Anyway, I will be using 2x12" Delta LF's for the bottom part
