Default Adire Tempest Plans anyone?

Main question
Does anybody have a link to Adire's plans from their now defunct website for cabs for this driver. I'm thinking of building a pair of subs. from a pair of Tempest 2s which I'm considering buying. I have a meaty MC2 MC1250 amp and Velodyne SMS1 to drive/EQ them.

I have WinISD but think these plans would make for a good start and reference source for cabinet plans.

Subsidiary question
Any other suggestions welcome for drivers available in UK for closed or vented cabs of up to 200 litre, but preferably less. Maybe Isobaric to save space. I want clean, fast and tight bass from 20 to 80Hz. I'm not worried too much by Db count or power requirements with 1250WPC@4ohm on tap. Driver budget per cab up to 200. That's probably $200 US given current exchange rates and usual higher UK prices.

leadfinger, you are now free to roam among the natives. Walk softly and carry a big stick, these people are crazy and they want more recruits like you. Be careful out there and don't think that because you have some years under your belt that you aren't one of ones sought after.

Thanks Leadfinger, I've got the PDF's.

That'll keep me going for a while. Great.

They seem to be hard to come by new now that Adire are no more even more so in the UK.

Main answer:

Unfortunately they didn't keep what you're looking for, though I believe between me and leadfinger we have everything they published.

Thanks GM,

Yes, I had found that page. With Leadfingers help all I want are their vented designs, and CAD drawings if I go that route.

Peerless XXLS are edging ahead at the moment for pure sub use though. I like the flat Adire response into the upper bass in case I get ambitious and go active at a later date.

Early days yet. Much more thought required.

Thanks, they're the missing ones. Having seen the others they were as predicted, but there may be other interesting reading there too.

They're along the lines of what I'd modelled. I was going a bit taller to cut down in footprint. Interesting to see their suggested bracing too.

Now, those Acoustic Excellence AV12 and A15 look interesting. Aluminum cones like my main speakers, that could offer similar 'voicing' synergy. Can't get them to model though. ...Ah well, more thinking and figuring to do.
