Default Adire audio tempest bessel sealed enclosure driver options

I while back I built a bessel allignment enclosure for a tempest sub I had. The plans are at this site.

http://www.acoustic-visions.com/~aco...ledtempest.pdf

I ended up blowing the sub and adire wouldn't cover it under warentee and I never replaced it. I now want to let a friend use the enclosure so that it isn't going to waste. I know I could buy a tempest and put it in there but are there other drivers that may be a little more affordable that I could put in that enclosure?

The original Tempest is being manufactured again. For 136.00 U.S. it would be pretty hard to beat considering your enclosure was designed for it.

Here you could try this driver by Dayton, I believe it is very similar. I have two of them in my car powered by a 1600 watt amp. They sound great and can take alot of abuse.

They also look alot like the tempest

If my memory serves well the AV15 from acoustic elegance modelled well in tempest sized boxes.

Rob.
