    Lol, as you can tell, I'm struggling too. It's so tempting but I've got a closet full of stuff already that I may never get around to. Probably be gone by the end of the weekend, let's hope. Must resist, must resist!

I have to watch what I say -- or type -- I'm not saying he did, or that it was a bad idea back then -- a lot of people built those and loved them -- but since the inventory went down so fast it made me remember it, that's all. Actually, they're so cheap that they could almost be considered 'cart filler' to get to the free shipping threshold. I could see them moving really fast at any rate. It looks like 4 is the number to get to keep impedance good and get decent output to cover the lack of sensitivity. That's a whopping $16 for four of 'em! I am resisting. I am strong. TomZ
        Yeah, I wasn't so strong.Too much thinking about what they could be got me in trouble. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk

          These have been in my cart a few times but I keep taking them back out. The price has me interested but the required cabinet size makes me resist. Yes, I think 1/2cuft is too much considering the size of the cone.

            What stops me is the ugly frame and the likely poor off axis performance from the recessed mounting. Sealed box performance is great. With DSP this could be awesome.

              im still asking my self why i bought 12 of them :D

              well when i bought them i was thinking of a 3s4p configuration, puts it at 4.5ohms, 300watt rms. was going to do free air or some kind of OB/IB setup. reading about OB/IB numbers and figuring things out for it makes my head hurt.

                  I just keep looking at mine and wondering how to mount them. Flush mounting seems like it would be very hard. Making a square-ish recess with an oval through hole accurately without a cnc would be very hard. Even rear mounting would need some type of jig or template. Maybe I'm just overthinking it.

                      Sorry, I have looked at them really hard, but that's it. Since the weather is warmer I have speaker projects that need to be finished. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk

                        I have had some ideas from a ultra affordable table radio or one heck of a wide or tall subwoofer. Sent from my moto g(6) play using Tapatalk

                          Xmax allows full rated power (25rms) down to 25Hz.
                          Mid 20s in 0.7cf tuned to high 20s.
                          40Hz in 0.4 closed cu.ft. Q near 1.0 .
                          Hey Chris, thinking of doing a soundbar sub for my sister so I just modeled a pair isobaric with the above numbers and the port I got was 1" x 4.1" but that wound up with a port speed of over 35. I modeled with a pair of ports 1.25" x 16.6" long and got the air velocity down to around 11 ... were either of those near what you might have come with? I'm pretty new with Winisd. Thanks, man!

                            Pretty much (you seem to know what you're doing).
                            I'd try 1-1/2" PVC w/a generous roundover on the exit (router). 12" long would do it. Aim the port away from listeners (in case there's a little chuffing).

                            Should be good @ 90dB @ 50w RMS (SA100 amp?), down to 20Hz. Yeowza.
                            Have fun.

                              Thanks for the reassurance. Wow ... lol, well that will be fun ... until her apartment neighbors get a listen. We'll be powering with a little external class d amp so she doesn't get too carried away ... or carried away.😄

                                And I figured I'd port them out the ends of the soundbar so looks like a plan!
