Default Peerless Subwoofer

I'm considering building a subwoofer using the 10" Peerless SWR269 (http://www.d-s-t.com/peerless/data/830452.htm) and the 12" Peerless passive (http://www.d-s-t.com/peerless/data/830548.htm)
Anyone care to pass any comments and/or recommend a box size?

Default XLS drivers

I have used both the 10 inch and 12 inch XLS drivers. Both are great sounding drivers. If I were you I would stick to the standard driver and avoid use of the passive radiator. Passive radiator drivers are much more difficult to align properly and they go deeper in bass but don't have as much slam as a normal driver .
Both drivers sound great in a bass reflex cabinet and go very loud and deep which is what I guess you are looking for. In addition the enclosures are pretty small for such large drivers.

Petter, I can't speak, read or write the language - Norwegian I presume - but maybe my Danish friend will help me out.
............
As far as alternatives are concerned, I'm looking for something I can acquire in Oz rather than having to import - I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks for the assistance.

This is the drawings of the 12" peerless version. The element you should be able to pick up locally, as you should the amplifier. If not, consider going to www.apexjr.com for some great deals (not in OZ). Better still, consider rolling your own amp ...

The original request was for box size which you see in the diagrams of the PDF file.

I can help you with translation should you desperately need it.

For quality amps contact Redgum amplifiers, and for the peerless driver, contact speakerbits.com.au, the amounts for the drivers are actually incorrect, the XLS was $240 last time i called a couple months ago.
