    That won't work for sealed subs would it? I am looking for 4 of AV15 x or h and not really sure yours will be right for that design. But at the price might be willing to risk it if I can find some more info on the net.

    Are these the IB15 model? What impedance are they? Did you buy them new or second hand?

    They are IB15s, all 8ohm. I bought them pre owned but haven't used them as they were for a future project that looks fairly unlikely to be doable now. I have the box for every driver and they're in mint condition.

    I just checked their specs are realised they need roughly a volume of 4.5 m3 per driver....I was hoping to have 4 into a space of 3 m3! I think I need a new house too!

    IB drivers essentially want no cabinet at all. To use them in a cabinet the cab just needs to be large enough to essentially remove the effect of a cabinet. I spoke with John from AE and he assures me they will work fine in volumes as small as 2 x vas. That works out at around 800 litres per driver.

    Oh really? I read that you really need 10x vas per driver. Was that an email from John? Is there anyway you could forward it to if it is, saves me asking him the same question.

    10x vas is the idealised cabinet volume, but by no means the strict rule. The IB cult forum FAQ also says that 4x vas is still workable for an IB. The AE speakers are unusually clean though, so I'm guessing that's why John thinks they will be fine in only 2 x vas as well. Ill PM you the info this evening when I get to a computer if you like.
