Default An on-line store in Australia / New Zealand to order subwoofer drivers and amps?

Because according to UPS and FedEx - its going to cost me about US$300 just to ship a Dayton 12" sub driver and a PartsExpress 250W plate amp to New Zealand?

USA citizens - be thankful! (In these cases I wish I did not live on the bottom of the world :-)

Try Adire Audio products, namely Shiva and Tempest, the authorized Australian distributor is Acoustic Concepts -- http://www.acousticconcepts.com.au Their plate amp is also the best I've seen here in Australia (based on specifications; compared with ones from Jaycar Electronics and Altronics).

HTH, good luck!

Hey 4fier,

Thanks for the web site! I swear I searched high and low and didn't find anything!

BTW - how do they Tempest / Shiva drivers compare to Dayton?

I want to build a closed box sub - mainly used for music. I presume the Shiva 12" will be more transient which is more important to me than bass extension or SPL - therefore I want a musical sub?

Do you have any experience with the Tempest / Shiva drivers (compared to anything else?)

Would you recommend an Isobarik or other sub setup for music than a single 12" in a lower order Q box?

PS: I downloaded your subwoofer simulation tool - Ilike it! - very easy to use... looking forward to the closed box modelling.

Thanks for your help

Basically, unless there is a very specific reason for using isobarik you shouldnt use it. If you've got the floor space, dual tempests are WICKED!

You could also check out WES Components Sydney...
They have a range of long throw Danish Peerless subwoofers 10" to 12" ranging in price from Oz$ 159 to $ 199 ea. If you want something bigger, they also stock Cervin Vega 15" subwoofers for $ 259 ea for the dual coil.
You could combine any one of these with the mosfet amp for a suitable system...
