    Apart from BK Elec what is a good source for speakers, specifically Subwoofers from the UK. And any recomendations? I'm half tempted to get the $199 deal from Adire Audio (DPL12+PR15) for sub #3 (got the bug) but before I do I want to see what I can get over here.

    Thanks, Wilmslow was the one I was after and couldn't remember!

    How are you getting on with the bits you got of Gary? Don't want to sell them :)

    Also worth a look from the US is Rythmik Audio I'm considering getting a cabinet made for their 350w servo sub. Sizes for a sealed enclosure are a dimuntive 54 litres...

    I ended up returning them, a very minor problem with the driver, but a major ear bending from the missus about the size of the tube enclosure it was going to be in !!

    Yes true, I was trying to minimise that by having the cabinet built here. I guess the driver and plate amp will be reasonably heavy and thus expensive to ship, but with the weak dollar it's very tempting.

    Apart from the fact that my girlfriend said the enclosure looked like a bridge support, there was very slight damage to the driver foam surround.

    Thanks - looking at peerless possibly, or the dpl12/pr15 combo.

    Yes I think peerless may be the way i want to go. Have been trying to email Rythmik audio but with no luck.

    Basically I'm looking for a simple active kit using a 350W and a 10" - 12" peerless XLS driver in a sealed enclosure of about 50 - 55 litres. Anyone have some designs for this or know where I should start digging ?
