I have read that earlier. I just thought I would give it a try.

Have you listened to the Sonodyne/ polk audio subs? Any stuff you can recommend? Budget is about 10K or maybe slightly more.

I have not heard the Polk Audio subs. I think the Sonodyne drivers are made by PI (Peerless India aka Mr. Ratha).

I am not able to recommend Mr. Palesha's yet as I have not heard his revised Sumokoo subs recently but that is probably the cheapest HT sub you can get. Last time I heard them they made more BOOM than anything else.

This is confusing. What to do is the question now since building one does not seem to be worth the effort.

See if you can listen to Sumokoo in Bangy. Failing that Sonodyne might be one bet. Ask Cream if his Lithos subs are available in Bangy. TO be honest these subs will all be lacking when compared to JBL or Whafdale but they sell at half the cost.

also ask Corrson if they have any Vifa TC series 10-12" woofers still in stock. These woofers requrie ralther large sealed boxes and have limited Xmax but atleat they are decently built.

I had already asked Corrson. They do not have 10 or 12 inch subs. He was saying that the Sumokoo subs were pretty good. How was the punch in the sumokoo subs?

I will have to mail the others.

Vivek -

Check the subs from Yamaha... Start at 10k (I am sure you can get them for less as the prices here seem to be a bit higher)
Even wharfedale has one thats around your price range

When I heard Sumokoo they had more BOOM than punch but Mahendra has upgraded the subs since both the driver and the amp so that is why i am inclined to ask you to listen to them. Having not heard them I cannot recommend them though.

For Home Audio my favourite is Velodyne.

And for DIY sub for home the best driver is IDQ12/15. Cannot beat it when it comes to speed and extension. With more budget you can consider IDMAX too

Car sub for home? That's very cross-gendered. With due respect for ID, I would never advice to use any car sub for home subwoofer applications. Unless, of course the driver in question is truly gay.

There are no problems using a car bass driver in home B&T. There are lot of DIY people in the US using ID Drivers for Home subwoofers. One of them is Mr. Bruce Edgar of Edgar Horns (one of the exquisite horn loaded speaker brands)

While Vivek is better off looking for a budget driver for his application... I second Jb on this and let me add that Dr Bruce Edgar sells iDQ based subs as part of his range of speakers.

Here are some pics of a setup that uses the iDQ...

Where will I find that budget driver for my HT sub project? That is the question.
