  • Giggling like a schoolgirl.

    The other night I moved my primary sub, a Dayton DVC 15 off a BASH 500, from the wall dividing my garage area of the basement to the HT area, to firing into the outside concrete wall at the front of my house. I messed around with it a little bit, but didn't crank it up because the kids were sleeping. Fast forward to today, I sent the kids down there to watch Boss Baby at a low volume today to keep them from waking my wife up, as she is a night shift nurse. They left everything on so I went down to turn it off and everyone else had gone to the pool this evening, so I decided to crank it up to see how the repositioning worked. I looked for something with some bass and there was a CD laying there with the words New music- March 2010. First song is I wanna Love you by Akon. Cranked it to 65 on the Onykyo with gain on the BASH to about 3 out of 10. Sub enclosure is only 5.95 cuft tuned to 23 hz with a 14.5 x 3 port. It was amazing. It actually was shaking the thin rock I had stacked under my front deck to rock the i, OUTSIDE!! The garage door was pulsating. We're talking about an area of 13.5x 30 ft. I would like to get a good microphone to actually quantify what I am hearing. The best part was that, this positioning left nearly no 'dead spots', whereas there were several at the subs previous position. I had already planned a 1/4 wave TL for the Dayton DVC, and I was going to run it with my Dayton 240 plate amp, then build another 1/4WTL for my Ultimax 15 and use the BASH for it. I mention this because I have an older Elemental Designs 13kv2 DVC 4 with 4 ohm coils with the silver cone running off the Dayton at 8 ohms. It was amazing and super efficient design and I want to see what it will do with a 15 with a much longer stroke off more power.

    When I get both built, I will corner load the Ultimax in the right rear, which proved to be fairly good with the ED 13kv2 in the 1/4WTL. Do you guys think I should do this or simply use both in the same position I have the single DVC 15 in now?

      Awwww. I figured a thread titled 'Giggling like a schoolgirl' with a response from Junior was certainly going to be more entertaining. (How ya' been Buddy? DaddyWorld treating you well?)

        Well I planned on taking some pictures, and since the sub enclosure I was listening is finished I thought it would fall under the speaker projects, not Techtalk. disregard the question portion of the post. The sub enclosure is just under 6 cu ft before port displacement, and port displacement is almost 1 cu ft. Final tuning is right at 23 hz. I believe this sub can improve greatly with the 1/4 wave TL. I will post a cut list and specs when I start it.

            Cool sub project. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing your pictures. Are you saying you are gonna ditch the 6 cubic foot bass reflex enclosure and build a monster TL for that 15"?
            Expensive caps need time to break in. More expensive caps take a long time. Cheap caps sound great right out of the box.
