    Bigger box with new specs. Note the lower power.

    Model with new specs. More output at 40hz, and less at 20hz. Note....60hz low-pass makes f3 lower than specs would suggest. A 19hz high-pass filter rolls off a little of the bottom end.

    I've been modeling many drivers the last couple of days. I almost bought the 12" today, but missed the sale, so I held off. I have a situation of sorts. In my living room, there's two locations where a sub works well. One is in direct view behind the front right main speaker. I want a small box for cosmetic reasons. I have an AVR that has power for the sub built in. It's uncertain how much clean power is available, but I figure enough if I have the right sub. I was leaning toward sealed, but ported, and a larger box gets more output for the same power. Assuming I have 100w into 4 ohms, do you think that's enough (with the 12 ), for an action movie. This models to about 100dB if ported, but only 95dB if sealed. These are approximate numbers. If I get that spl at the seats, I'll be satisfied.

    The more drivers I modeled, the more a trend became obvious. (Hoffmans Law I think.) Several woofer sims with over 9 cu-ft produce great spl with only 25w! I have a 7 cu-ft sub that is normally used in another room. It sounds good in the living room, if located as mentioned, but horrible in other spots. I have a sealed RS270p in 1 cu-ft box that sounds very good with music, but I bottomed it out playing a movie recently. I believe that a low Q sealed roll off with the 12 will sound good, but I question having enough power.

    Was there a question in there? Oh, have you tried plugging the port(s), and comparing? Comments on how much power is needed?

    We reviewed the specs on these 3 new GRS drivers and did find quite a few discrepancies in the T/S parameters... specifically on the 10" (292-818) and the 15" (292-822).
    Here are the verified specifications:

    8SW-4HE SPECS (292-816):

    Impedance: 4 Ohm
    Re: 3.8 Ohms
    Le: 2.7mH
    Fs: 24.9Hz

    Qts: 0.45
    Mms: 93.7g
    Cms: 0.44 mm/N
    Sd: 227 cm3
    Vd: 243.9 cm3
    BL: 10.51
    Vas: 31.6L
    Xmax: 10.5mm
    VC Diameter: 50.8 mm
    SPL: 85 dB @ 2.83V
    Power Handling (AES426B): 150
    Usable Frequency Range (HZ): 30 – 700


    10SW-4HE SPECS (292-818):

    Impedance: 4 Ohm
    Re: 3.8 Ohms
    Le: 3 mH
    Fs: 25.2 Hz
    Qms: 4.00
    Qes: 0.57
    Qts: 0.50
    Mms: 110.7g
    Cms: 0.36 mm/N
    Sd: 346.4 cm3
    Vd: 379 cm3
    BL: 10.8 Tm
    Vas: 60.7 L
    Xmax: 11 mm
    VC Diameter: 50.8 mm
    SPL: 87.5 dB @ 2.83V
    Power Handling (AES426B): 200
    Usable Frequency Range (HZ): 26 – 500


    15SSW-4HE SPECS (292-816):

    Impedance: 4 Ohm
    Re: 4.2 Ohms
    Le: 3.7 mH
    Fs: 20.7Hz
    Qms: 4.27
    Qes: 0.55
    Qts: 0.49
    Mms: 283.8 g
    Cms: 0.21 mm/N
    Sd: 819.4 cm3
    Vd: 998.6 cm3
    BL: 16.6 Tm
    Vas: 196.6 L
    Xmax: 12.3 mm
    VC Diameter: 63.5 mm
    SPL: 90 dB @ 2.83V
    Power Handling (AES426B): 300
    Usable Frequency Range (HZ): 20 - 300


    All of the physical dimensions, impedance curve, and measured frequency response are correct.
    ​The product page on the website will be corrected as soon as possible and new spec sheets will be up in a few days.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Power ratings are thermal. Most modeling software programs will show mechanical limits. Since it will be different in every enclosure there's no point in testing it, especially as you can calculate it for whatever enclosure you use.

    Last year I bought a set of Polk SRT's. Price was good as one of the sub amps was inop and one of the 4 10" subs had been replaced after being blown. The mains had some beat up grills ans some slight damage to the cabs but work great and are sitting in my living room (with the grills off), In the meantime the second sub amp quit working.

    I've gone back and forth trying to decide on what it would take to return these to their full glory. The sub amps at the very least need the PS caps replaced (10,000µF x 4 x 2) and who knows what else. But the amps are only rated for 300 watts each, good by mid-90's standards but not so much by today's standards. I have other working amps I could use instead and a single 1,000 wat amp seems like the most practical solution.

    I've debated dropping a single 15" Dayton RSS HF sub into each 3 cubic foot sub cabinet. That would probably yield the most impressive result but it's also the most expensive option. I've been meaning to shop for 10" diver options as well but the cabinet is a single reflex bandpass design so getting a driver with specs close to the factory sub is key to getting predicable results. I'd been contemplating a post asking for help on this. Considering the price of these GRS drivers and how close the (yet to be fully determined) specs seem to be then I might have a pretty affordable option.

    Polk Sub:
    Qt: .584
    Fs: 29.6
    Vas: 1.284cf
    It's basically a 2 ohm driver. 2/side in series for a 4 ohm leod on each dedicated amp.

    GRS sub:
    Qt: .31 (published), .46 (figured from published ZMA files)
    Fs: 29Hz (published)
    Vas: 1.36cf (published)
    Power is rated at 200 watts. I'm not sure if this is more of a thermal or mechanical limit. A bandpass enclosure should help limit excursion. If I use a 1,000 watt amp then 250w/sub doesn't seem too crazy.

    Maybe the folks at PE could test these drivers (8,10 and 12 and 15) so we know exactly what to expect.​

    So if there's a good chance the specs are off, there's also a good chance that the driver may perform even better than what's shown in my sim!

    OK so, I randomly changed Vas, Qes, and fs in my sim, and left the box size, and tuning the same. Just look at that f3! I conclude that this is still very nice, and the room acoustics will have a much larger effect than your suggested imperfections in the specs. I can make up some more specs if I didn't make my point here. Also, I suppose some builders might use a little EQ as well.

    Unfortunately I can't do that, as if the published spec for Qts is off, there's a good possibility that the published spec for Vas is off as well, and at the minimum Vas, Qts and Fs are needed to any box modeling.

    Um, I didn't quote Qts in my post. I provided only Qes and Qms. They're calculated using a curve fit in the workbook that I used, so if the ZMA file for the driver is accurate, then the calculated values for Qes and Qms I provided should be accurate as well, more accurate than DATS IMO because DATS does not take the semi-inductance parameters into consideration.

    Given the values for Qes and Qms provided by the workbook, Qts works out to (0.519 * 3.73) / (0.519 + 3.73) = 0.46. That's quite a bit higher than the published value of 0.31.

    So, either the published values for the driver are incorrect, or the published ZMA file for the driver is incorrect. My money's on the former because both the 8" and 12" versions of the driver have higher published values for Qts.

    There's nothing wrong with the Q numbers if they're the only thing you look at. But when taken in context with the rest of the published specs they don't hold up to the light of day. In WinISD, for instance, if you enter the Q numbers from the spec sheet first the calculated electro-mechanical parameters don't agree with the spec sheet. If you enter the electro-mechanical numbers first the calculated Q numbers don't agree with the spec sheet.

    Also, an (old) AUDAX HM210G0 had a Qes = 0.36, Qms = 2.70, and Qts = 0.32 (which are nearly identical).
    So there's nothing wrong w/those Q numbers (mathematically).

    I did notice BB6 complained about a couple parameters when i plugged them in. I agree measurements would be good. Still looks promising, could be quite a bit worse than the published spec and still competitive.
