They are 1016 piezo's.I know I know,but they sound great in bunches.I run about 300 watts each to them for parties and they don't sweat it.I eq down a little bit from 10 to 20K as they are alittle bright.Maybe now I'll start finishing fireplace mantle.I run 2-Tuba36's for low end and the rocks keep falling off.

Shawn,

How do the Shiva-Xs perform? I've used the original Avatar/Audire Audio subs (including Shiva #1) in Subs and found them to be very good. The new "X' version is just that much better if everything claimed for them is true. I've seen the drivers 1st hand, but have never seen nor heard them in use.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Gone, but not forgotten. Kevin Haskins of diyCable/ Exodus Audio has brought out a new Shiva that is an improved version. He also has the Tempest-X and Malestrom-X Subs that are likewise updated and improved versions of the originals.

Try: www.diycable.com and click on the logo when it comes up.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Shawn,
With 4 Tuba's you could probably convert your listening room into an atrium very quickly.

The original Shiva was a pretty good driver, but the Exodus version is a lot nicer build with XBL2, vented spider, cast frame and those wonderful wire terminals. If they polished the basket, I'd probably install them in a display case instead of a Sub


Best Regards,
TerryO

Thanks guys! I unfortunately already ordered some decent woofers for a current OB project of mine- I would've definitely gone with those Exodus drivers. Nice prices on the Cardas and Clarity Caps as well .
