thanks ThomasW

My problem was with that design was primarily the crossover. Im new to speaker building and i wasnt sure if a sub woofer needed a crossover or not by that plan it mentions it but doesnt give any deatils of construction of it. Do subwoofers need a crossover?

Yes subs must have a crossover. And active is certainly the best way to go. The parts cost for a high quality passive can equal or exceed that of an active unit.

Since you're in OZ go with something from ESP

My problem is i have no idea how to build a sub. Sure i could buy the driver and get an amp but how do i know how to wire the cross over or the proportion of the enclosure and the baffels.
I would like to work off plans of a tried and tested design built around the shiva 12" driver cause i hear its one of the best. Can anyone tell me where i could get such plans or give me some advice on where to go from here?

If you go to the adire web site http://www.adireaudio.com/

then click on diy audio then click on shivas then click on techinal

choose app notes you will see app papers on building a sealed or ported box for shivas

down load the one you want they both contain plans for building 3 different size box .

remember if you want to build a ported box you will a rumble filter

can be bought from jaycar in a kit .

if you dont want a down firing its just a matter of building it on its side

If you're building the audax home theater kit, then surely you'll be using an av receiver ?

If so the av receiver will do the crossover stuff for you, leaving you only to buy an amp.

Cheers,

Rob

Ah great thanks Rob, thats what was confusing me. So bisically all i need is the driver and the amp wire it up and im set? So the hardest thing will be the enclosure i guess.
