Default DPL12 w/ PR15

Hello all,

I'm a bit of a newbie, so any help would be appreciated. Does anyone have any thoughts on this setup?

Thanks,
Chris

What, no replies?

I'm starting to like the idea of this setup, unfortunately I cannot find all of the specs needed to input it into winisd, so I may be flying blind on this one.

Also, does anybody have any recomendations as to a good amp (not a plate amp) to use on this setup? My research on the dpl12 says it's a little power hungry so I want to be sure to give it plenty of juice.

Thanks,
Chris

I was also thinking about using a Apex senior amp, would this work with the setup above??

What specs are you missing? E-mail our tech support at techsupport (at) adireaudio (dot) com and ask for the missing specs - they'll get them for you.

As far as power goes, anything in the 200-350W range is fine; no need for really big power levels.

Thanks Dan, I will do just that.

Does anyone know of a good non plate amp bridgeable into 4 ohm that would suit this application?

Also, my goal here is to beat out a hsu tn1220 sono tube sub.....am I in the ballpark? I could just go buy the tube, but I'm a bit bored and like to do things for myself.

Thanks,
Chris

Musician's Friend has the Nady XA900 for ~$180. Does ~350W per channel into 4 Ohms...

Having helped a friend build a DPL12 in a 75 liter sealed cabinet I can vouch for the performance of this driver. Very nice and controlled, easily worth the few extra dollars over the Shiva. The PR'd cabinet should provide a little more bottom end while maintaining cone control.

So, is this thing gonna shake the room, or what??

I've gotten myself confused with wiring. With that Apex amp, do I bridge it down to 4 ohms (it does not say that it is capable of this, though), then wire the dual voice coils in parallel? Is there really a need to go out and find more power, or will this thing outdue the HSU?

I really do not have a good reference for subwoofers (I've demo-ed an sunfire true junior and a velodyne cht-12 in a store) my father has a p.o.s. mitsubishi and my friend has a polk setup, but none of them "shake the air" like HSU are known to do (at least that's what I read).

I'm looking for a "shake the air" kinda sub.....something low but controlled. I'm not sure if I'm headed in the right direction, any help would be great.


Thanks,
Chris

That may depend on the room.

Unfortunately I move fairly often (military) so I just hope that it turns out to be quality, or else I guess I'll just buy something from a manufacturer. I just need it to shake the average 15x20x8 family room.
