Add this to your list:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=295-466

And this if they ship overseas:

And don't forget Peerless, it's an Europe brand and they sell nice stuff too.

May be if you are sure in the quality and about this speaker I can try to buy the Assassin 12".I can`t buy Peerless because Bulgaria is a very poor country,but In this poor country The price of all Peerless drivers is
double in comparison with the price in Germany.I can`t give 400 euros for a 12" Peerless XLS driver .This is a robbery for me.
The Assassin is a beautifull driver,but I feel nervy because this driver have a 4 ohms imp. and the other speakers for the channel are with a 8 ohms imp.The other problem is that I work with electronics,not with speakers,and I am in need of any help for the calculation of the cabinet

The Dayton hi-end drivers are also 4 ohms.

If you use a plate amplifier like in the design you're showing us, no problems with a 4 ohms driver.

Yes I'm sure the Assassin 12" is a very nice driver, but you should look with the owner to see if they ship overseas.

With PartsExpress, it's easier to get your driver shipped.

You can't order a Peerless XLS in germany and pay half price?

There's nice software tools to design enclosures these days. Choose and order the driver you want, and we will help you design the enclosure.

Thanks Simon.The conception is:
I can buy the Peerless drivers from the shop in Bulgaria for double price or get the money for the precious shipping,because for bulgaria the price is cosmic.
I have one friend in Washington and I think that he can buy the Assassin 12 and bring it to me in Bulgaria ,but I can`t find any information for the weight of this speaker and any graphics.
It `s a good option if you know for any European online shop who sell the Assassin,but?

Consider the AE Speakers AV12. It's probably the closest thing to the driver in that Aerial Acoustics subwoofer cutaway photo.

looks like a tc sounds one to me IMO but hey, i could easily be wrong. if youre ordering a decently large amount of stuff from partsexpress the shippping price becomes more reasonable....

if you did a box similar to that one, but taller, and put two 12s in each and a ice big plate amp at the back, it would be deadly.

research a bit on sbwoofers to make sure that what youre making will give you the kind of bass you want for your room. also no matter how big and powerful a sub is placement is very important, or else it will sound weak.

or you could always do a group buy, find some friends that also want subwoofers and order a large shipment from partsexpress. i live in canada, and even then its usually cheaper to get from partsexpress than it is to get something locally.

Hi,

Why you can buy 2 Assassin at 95$ and only one Dayton 12" HO at 104$ ???

2 Assassins is definitely better than a single Dayton.

To destroy a house, two drivers is better than one.

Because I have only One Mono Block 600W RMS@4 Ohms and because and the Dayton driver with 700 RMS have minimum 390W RMS.
I have many problems because the Ascendant Assassins I can buy only with PayPal payment(in Bulgaria I can`t open a PayPal account) and because the shipping cost 300$ for my country.This is a very big problem
