Default 10" Subwoofer < $100

http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchf...8/1081060W.PDF

That is the Infinity 1060w specs. A 4 ohm driver with a low qts of .41.

Anyways, I am planning on building a PORTED downfiring subwoofer for my bedroom with that woofer. I will not be running a lowpass/crossover. Floor will do that work for me.

What drivers would you recommend for such an application. I would them to be under $100. I would go with an Image Dynamics but that is out of budget.

Oh and I have modeled this driver in WinISD. 1.5 cubic feet tuned to 31hz is nice and pretty.

Thanks - Andrew

May I ask why you seem to be set on using car audio drivers for a home sub......as most need the gain of an auto cabin to perform well. Also, not lowpassing (budget?) your future sub is a recipe for a disappointing listening experience IMO. The floor may do "some" filtering, but in essence you'll have a stereo signal coming from your mains......combined with a muffled mono channel, up to the subs' high end cutoff that is. You'll also need some sort of steep (12-24db) high pass, or else you'll blow the sub in a ported box, best case the cone/surround junction will separate. I'd look for a proper home audio sub

Well crossovers eat up SO much dang power. And actually my last sub (a dayton Quatro 8) I ran in a vented box with no filter. Sounded fine really.

And that infinity, looking at the specs is a very good driver. I just compared it to a Dayton Classic 10 subwoofer, and it can go much lower in the same size box tuned the same. Even in a box designed right for it, the Dayton still blows it away. And they are the same price.

What do you intend to power the sub with? A passive sub X-over will rob some power, and is generally a costly endeavor (big caps). Also, any reason why you're set on a 10", a bedroom setup might be fine with an 8"....or even a 6 1/2.

Oh no. I had that dayton 8 in my room. I over designed the box because I was stupid. It was an 8 inch in a ported box tuned to 34hz. It woud hits its xmax due to the box being too big.

Wasnt enough

If you're wanting more and are willing to step up to 12", this would be 1st on MY list for $100.
