Default Please help me chose as sub/design

I am just fininishing up a Tritrix build and it is the transmission line version. I have not seen any measured results but folks seem to think that they will play down to 50hz or so in this configuration.

I am looking to build a sub that compliments these subs and I am looking to build something that extends to 35hz F3. I was looking at the folowing drivers and was thinking about using the 1000 watt Dayton plate amp or possibly stand alone amp. I don't want to build anything much larger than 3 cubic feet.

The drivers I am considering:
http://www.parts-express.com/pdf/295-464s.pdf
http://www.parts-express.com/pdf/290-570s.pdf

I tried to model the Dayton sub in WinISD but aparently I messed it up bad somewhere and it will not even compute it. It looks like the LAB sub will get it done with a 3.5 cubic foot box tuned at 22hz.


Please help before I pull out my hair. Also please feel free to completely erase this board and start over if you have some suggestions.

Sorry guys I was in a bit of a hurry. I did not mean to call the Tritrix "subs" but that was on my brain

Also, this is for music. I listen to more R&B and blues and would like the system to excel in the lower bass octaves of bass guitar and keyboards.

Here is the WinISD file for the RSS315HF-4. Save the file to the "Drivers" folder in the program.

Mickey,

Thank you! Did you happen to model this one vs the LAB sub. Are there any thoughts against using the LAB sub for home use for music?

I think you have to go sealed with the RSS315HF if you want to keep it under 3 cubic feet. It models pretty well with a 2-2.5ft^3 box and a bit of low end boost. I actually just helped a friend of mine build one. It is really quite an impressive driver.
