I want to build my own audio setup in my living room for as cheap as possible.I would enjoy building my own subwoofer but I need to know if it is worth buying dual voice coil subs (sub?) or buying an 8 ohm sub.I sold everything to start over and have limited amount of money.Is it better to try and construct big bass or fork out the cash for floor sub?I want over the top sound.

There is a store down the street from me called Speaker City. They sell cabinets, cross-overs, drivers, speaker components, baffels, etc. to build your own speakers. Their site is I've never built my own speakers, but I've purchased replacement drivers from them because they sell the exact drivers for many commercial brands.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
