    Old school subwoofer recone

    I just did an old m&m godfather that sat in my friends back yard 20 years. The voice coil had a hornets nest in it. I took it apart and measured everything and bought comparable/generic parts. I did reuse the voice coil which was a real pain in the ass, but can be done. Now I'm doing a g&s redline. Same story, but I managed to not destroy the cone this time so I might reuse it if I can get the spider off it. If the dust cap is paper or felt you can put a little acetone around the edge and carefully remove it. It is a lot easier if you can get a complete recone kit, that's for sure.
  3. Making distribution blocks inspired by the pic here is on my to do list. I just scored a bunch of free copper plate, which is a good conductor. I'm going to use wood, copper, aluminum and stainless. I have gathered an abundance of these materials off the free section of craigslist.

    Working around impedance rise

    So the resonant frequency of the sub could possibly outweigh the box tuning in terms of output, or am I misunderstanding?

    Working around impedance rise

    In my experience I have cabin gain that affects the loudness more than the tuning of my box. Is this what you are talking about here? Why else would you get less output when the amp is putting out the most watts?

    Plate amp

    I'm running a zapco amp off a astron power supply in my apartment. Its a really small room and I can't crank it, but I made a plexiglass cover for the amp and it really ties the room together. I have a bluetooth receiver on it and the amp takes care of the crossovers. Its a 4 channel unit. I run it wireless off my laptop. Probably not your cup of tea but I'm throwing it out there anyway.

    Amplifier sound quality ?

    I think you have to look at customer service too. Fosgate has answered all my dumb questions over the years and you can easily reach them by phone if you have to. If you value this level of service maybe its worth the extra money, maybe not. Do you think you could get someone from kung pao amplifier company on the phone?

    Muting front stage

    Thanks for the suggestion. I found a feature on my head unit that switches off the internal amplifiers.
  9. What are you going to use for your drone cones?
  10. Word to the wise, don't let Wesley Dasher Scott borrow anything from you.

    Size and amount of fuses?

    There are lots of "discussions" on here about this. I suggest you search for them. Figure out the amperage rating of the cable you are using and choose a fuse with the same or lower rating. Using a fuse with a higher rating will not protect you from catching on fire in the event of a short.

    Sealed or ported?

    At tuning do they move very little like in a ported enclosure?
  13. Fine if you plan to only build enclosures with them. Question for the excessive clampers - do you screw your joints together also, or just clamp? When I screw joints together, I find one clamp is enough. Sometimes I don't use screws and then I use every clamp I have.
