Is the baffle pre cut?

 

No, you would at least need a jigsaw.

If I used the svs pb12 plus sledge amp. I could use one of the peqs to most 35hz i think. Do you think this amp would work well? With that sub?

 An 800 watt plate amp?  Heck yes!

 

I strongly suggest you measure first how big that SVS sledge amp is.  Make sure it will fit in the back of the 3.0 cuft flat pack.  My Yung 500 seemed a perfect fit, you can find the specs on PE.

Idk I probably would leave it out. Build/buy a box to put it in.

Do these kits come with speaker terminals? If not is the kit have a spot pre cut for them? Didn't notice any pics of this.

It's easier than you think and it fits fine, it was designed to accept a plate amp.  I'll post a pic of mine later.

 

And yes I have an alternative.  I have a Yamaha P-5000 pro amp, about 700 wpc.  I'll sell it to you for what I have in it $150 shipped.  I'm not actively looking to sell it but if you want it I'll let it go.

 

I've got run for now, we can discuss later and I'll tell you the story how I got it.  Basically picked a pair up locally for another forum member who went another way, so I'm just passing them along for what I have in them.

No they don't.  If you go with an external PA amp you'll need connectors.  Look up speakOn, by Neutrek.  It's what the cool kids are using.  B)

Ultimax kit

 

The Kits only include driver & cabinet. You will need to buy a terminal cup, screws, stuffing and wire to complete the basic build.

 

I mention a terminal cup because i don't recommend installing the amplifier in the cabinet.

What do you like about this over the 15" kit?

Second your opinion on not putting the amp in the cabinet :) ... but if you have the plate amp already ... :D 

Just use some individual connectors ... just 2 holes to drill ... easier than a "cup" ... like https://www.parts-express.com/gold-binding-post-banana-jack-pair-extra-long-shaft-with-solder-tabs--091-340

The kit mentioned earlier or the Ultimax 15" kit ?

 

The 15" Ultimax kit is fine.

The HO kit if you could substitute the HF series driver is OK.

 

I'm just not a fan of sealed subs unless you have a bunch of them.

I like ported too.

 

This would be used for 25-50hz range. Near field like a few ft away (right behind me). Im using a cheap 10" polk sub atm. Works great for low levels. But then disappears pretty fast when I turn up the LaScalas.

If you need a sub for La Scala's get a horn loaded sub.

 

None of the subs mentioned here will do them justice.
