    Hi, I have a friend building a Sub, and he doesn't know which cone to buy. Any Ideas ?

    Planing to spend from $100 to $150. (Up to £100, I think).

    Thanks for the help

    More information required, but two blindingly obvious ones' are Volt and Audax(?). Volt may be a little more £'s i'm not sure,

    Sub bass is all about moving air and lots of it. A large diameter (12" minimum) HE (High Excursion) driver will give the best results. Most HE drivers come from the US.

    Have a look at the Adire Audio Shiva- http://www.adireaudio.com/cd/shiva.htm
    $115. It shouldn't be much over $150 when shipping is taken into account.
    Adire Audio also provide many different enclosure application plans for you to use.
    They also have excellent tech support and will answer any of you queries regarding enclosures, in room SPLs etc.

    Also have a look at- http://www.stryke.com/ http://www.audioc.com/subs/drivers.htm
    Both excellent companies.

    You may want to read the LDSG
    (Loudspeaker Driver Selection Guide)- http://www.snippets.org/ldsg/index.php3
    Section 4 discusses subwoofer drivers.
    http://www.diysubwoofers.org/ is another excellent resource.

    The US Home Theatre Forums have dedicated DIY sections. If you search for DIY sub you'll return plenty of info.

    If your friend is a beginner I suggest researching as much as possible before you take the plunge. The above links will lead you to all things DIY.

    Cheers.
