Anyone hear of Creative Sound Solutions or have heard their products?

I'm leaning toward a DIY sub and they seem to have some good drivers and 'kits' that don't cost an arm and a leg to ship over here. Another Canadian company that charges less than any US company to ship stuff here.

I've been on their website a number of times but haven't bought anything from them. I think they have a storefronts on both sides of the Washington/BC border.

You may find some info about them on one of the DIY sites as I recall seeing some postings about their sub kits.

They have a good reputation. They also have a forum at hometheatershack.com

Thanks guys!

I found them over on hometheatershack, and they seemed to offer a decent line at first glance.

I have dealt with them before. The fellow that runs it is very good and helpful. Originally from the Greater Toronto Area, he, at one time, sold the Velodyne SMS-1 bass equalizer and I purchased it from him at a very competitive price. He has been around for awhile now so worth a try.

They do have some interesting sub kits, as well as the "tuneable" weight passive radiators(up to 15").

I was looking at the Trio 12 kit. Seems like quality components. Even though that sub is their 'budget' version it seems like it would do ok in that kit with the amp tweaks.

I just need better low range extension than what I'm getting with the BIC F12. Looking at the SPL pdf on the site I'm thinking I should be able to get decent response at 20hz...not stellar, but decent.

I do have space for their SDX15 driver and am trying to figure out WINISD to get a good design.

If you have room, skip the pr kits and step up to the SDX15. It does well in anything from 7.5 to 12 cu.ft. ported. An 11-12 cu.ft cap tuned to 15 Hz will get you flat to 15Hz in room.
