now that ur eyes have popped out
... push them back in & have a close look at the layout which i have marked on 1 of the sides (if u not seeing it good then save the pic & zoom in on the markings)
this box was ALOT of work - took 3 sheets of 3\4" plywood + more ply to make the scoop part
so i really couldnt stop to take pics of the pieces going in 1 at a time
here is a inside shot of it b4 the curved scoop & a angle piece was added on after : the completed box
had to get help to lift it upright to take pics but during the entire build its just me alone doing all the heavy lifting ... Review :
in the car audio there exist 5000+wrms subs but "only" 1000wrms in pro audio is considerable , especially with the cone area of a 21" speaker & a horn loaded enclosure .
Note i said speaker & not sub since its freq response is pretty wide ... its a brand new never played b4 8 ohms svc speaker & i had 'only' 500wrms of car amp power to test it in full range mode with cut off point of around 35hz according to the design ...to play the upper vocals & highs i used 1 RCF N850 getting about 100-150wrms which was a really nice match to it in both tones & loudness
IMHO it sounded pretty good for a box in the open outdoors with a full range signal & with a slight bit of 12 band EQing from my car deck ...i played from oldies like BGs to recent colby cailat adult contemporary to dance hall & rap
...it played from vocals to bass though not so good on certain jeezy low freq bass songs like 'white girl or 3 6 mafia 'late night tip' ...maybe it will do better on those when its broken in properly or with more power
i even tried it playing just bass off my orion 2500d monoblock which shud be giving the speaker about 500-600wrms @ ohms , sounding quite good with that too ... u can feel it strongly hitting ur body if u stand up close
so u can use this in full range setting or bass only setting & it will do the job either way ...does not shake ur innards from far like 30-40ft away but u do hear its tones quite well ...quite a big heavy enclosure so its not something u wud enjoy moving around alot ...
...(unless u put it on 4 wheels) ... the owner said its for personal use in his backyard ...
he PMed me his review on it :
i figure he & his neighbors might not get along too good from now on ...
like i said above this exclosure was ALOT of work - all those angles & precise measurements took me a wk to do this , not working 8hrs\day on it but this took alot of energy & time - i could have built 5 car audio slot port boxes in the same amt of time ... i was happy for the challenge & experience though ..... 8-)
