  • $65 - 19mm Xmax...

    ...Buyout 12" DVC subwoofer. Looks handsome in 3 cubic feet tuned to the mid 20's. Wire the coils in series and build a pair, run them in parallel, and power it with a 1000 watt plate amp.

    Not the ugliest subwoofer out there, but the cone printing can be a major turnoff for some people but then again - people use ugly pro woofers all the time, soo....

    Plenty of venting around the spider and coil, the motor looks large enough to house that long coil, the surround looks capable of handling the excursion... Probably a pretty good deal even if it is a stamped steel frame.

    Or, each driver in 1.25 cubic feet sealed with 6db of boost applied around 30 Hz. Not as low, but much more WAF-y.

      That's a pretty cool deal. The xmax sure is nice on that, and it looks like it handles some power. I like 2 of them in an 80 L sealed enclosure. A Behringer iNuke 1000 DSP would be a great way of powering them and being able to boost the low-end at the same time.

        i was looking at those, but the fs was so high i looked the other way. so these could be used(well) as home subs?

          They would work quite well, actually. Fs isn't much of a metric when it comes to subwoofers these days.

                That's a heck of a deal if they meet those published specs. 90dB sensitivity and 19mm xmax = loud! Fs could be lower, but I suppose they are meant as a car sub.
                "I just use off the shelf textbook filters designed for a resistor of 8 ohms with
                exactly a Fc 3K for both drivers, anybody can do it." -Xmax

                  From the rest of the specs, it looks like the efficiency is closer to 85dB 1W/1M. That 90.7dB number probably corrolates to 2.83V with the two 4 ohm coils in parallel. It still looks like a very capable sub for $65, though. The print on the cone isn't particularly cheesy either.

                    I wonder is a solvent could remove the print without damaging the anodized finish?

                      The VC is 34mm long and the xmax is 19mm? Perhaps it's 19mm p-p.

                        You're probably right. Still, it's a good deal if it doesn't need to go really low.

                          I wish I knew the answer to how well they would perform as pairs in a "w- baffle"...

                            Even if Xmax is 1/2 the 19mm, a pair will still take the 1000 watts without exceeding Xmax.

                            Ed, the problem with drivers like these is they require a leap of faith to try them. They are an "unknown", and someone always has to be first.

                              I am glad you pointed them out.
