Thanks John,

Would they be reasonable candidate for a DIY subwoofer for home use?


This guy has a pair of these and I have been looking for 15" JBL woofers for a sub project but as you know they can get a little spendy. He is asking for $100.00 for the pair.

Would they be reasonable candidate for a DIY subwoofer for home use?They'd be fun to play with, and $100 isn't a huge investment. Frankly, they'd probably sound pretty good in the right enclosures, (better than nothing), though I think that series might use a stamped metal frame instead of the cast we're used to.

Yep, stamped metal for sure not cast.

Might get lucky with the performance but who knows. Listen, I appreciate your input. Maybe I should just save my pennies for the real deal.:D


Thanks again
