I meant the Daytons, sorry...and make space! They mate for life, so one just won't be happy or perform as well without a partner...j/k :D

I think that I'm going to go with two 15" DVC's compound loaded for the dorm room in a temp box that I already have, and then build a box proper when I get a place I can REALLY make noise in. Compound saves space and gives me the low end I want, sacrificing SPL for a box that's half the size doesn't bother me now, considering I can always build a bigger box.

here's my bass

So I'm thinking Isobaric, 3 cubic feet tuned to 28hz. That gives me an f3 of about 25hz, and a calculated output of 115db at about 35hz and 800w from that bass head I linked.

Then later, I take the two DVC 15's and do them properly, something like 8 cubic feet to 12 cuft, tuned to around 25hz. Or a horn. Always wanted to do one. Still can't figure out how to yet though. Suggested reading material for horns anyone?

If you're doing bass guitar I actually wouldn't recommend one of these drivers. Go with a P.A. driver with a fuller upper range response.
