Crazy 18" Prototype subwoofer


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the compliments fellas! Subs were excellent and held up well. People were treated to a very good demo before noon. Old batteries and stock electrical. I always do that! Can't help myself ....I like giving demo and meeting sq/bass heads more than competition. Before you know system is drained and two hours and 3 hours later its time to meter.

I'll charge the batteries and post a vid of the system fresh.

Thanks to ken/forevrbumpn. Sky's the limits.

Steve, also a thanks for the kind words.

Yes, smell a rebuild!

Wow, looks awesome, like a piece of a space ship. All that's missing is a plutonium cylinder and fog from liquid nitrogen sweeping over the floor

I have a ritual called "terminator". I crouch in the shower in the "naked terminator" pose. With eyes closed I crouch for a minute and visualize either Arnie or the guy from the 2nd movie. I then start to hum the T2 theme. Slowly I rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me get through my day. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It sorta ruins the fantasy.

Stevil I've been waiting 13 months for results from these lol. I never heard these in his system just 22-27-32 hz burps at half volume which was doing shirt tricks violently. Will needs to get in here and comment. I couldn't make it to the show myself or I would have posted Vid immediately. The xmax is 28mm one way but actual stroke side view is impressive. Definitely larger spiders needed

Larger spiders and a surround delete (yes, I said delete) ; )

Shoot for 40mm lol :)

Any time you have have a power wire next to your frame put some rubber hosing (or cut up an innertube) around it. The wire is bound to wiggle (due to driving or flex) and the casing will eventually wear through.

It will see 40+ I believe its only partially a high xmax sub its low end monster that can handle tons of power and efficient. More cone control towards peak xmax where other subs start to lose cone control. Xmax is what these can be modded for though

soon....but i don't have a heck of a lot of video of it. He rolled up his window on me and i didn't get the vibe he wanted me to film too much of it. I think he was pissed because it went into protect and i understand the frustration, i been there several times :D

if you want my bro, i can come by with the gopro 3 @ 60 or 120fps and we can do a much MUCH better demo. I can get you a ton of attention with this. People love crazy shit like this and it will look sick on the gopro LOL
