Good morning all, I got my...
I got my woofs in last night and the wife hardly said anything at all. She took it all out on my son, who happened to be home at the time, so when I got home everything was cool and only got a few bad remarks--lucky me hehe.
So they are actually nicer than what I was expecting. They came packaged in very nicely and FedEx delivery for free . They weigh about 22lbs a piece, cast frame, hugh motor and magnet, copper in the coil, etc, etc. Overall, I was delighted with the build quality--but how does it sound? I first wanted to do an impedance sweep with no luck. My son installed a computer game and somehow it mucked up my SC or the processing or something so I need to figure out how to fix that. Dang kids...
So, I was a little bumbed out about not getting to do the impedance sweep so I decided to give it a listen in free air at low volumes of course. I disconnected my speaker wire on my right speaker and hooked it up to Kappa Pro 15LF-2 woofer. Holy cow, this thing sounds great! And I mean the whole FR. I didn't have any passives on it so it was running wide open. Natural roll-off and very, very, very, nice sounding. Not a lot of bass in free air but you can hear it and you just know that when it goes into a box and baffle that it's just going to rock the house. Everything I played on it sounded good. No ringing, no bad noises, just smooth sound. Why in world have I waited so long to get one of these I tell myself now in hindsight. It's definitely not a subwoofer, it's a music woofer and woof, woofs mighty nice. Yes indeedy, as you can tell I am very pleased with the initial listen on this guy. Just seeing two of them right next to each other gets the goose bumps going.
Anyways, I need to go finish up this retention report for state submission so I need to get back on that. Again, I am very pleased with the build and sound quality of this finely made "American" product
