Forevrbumpn

Quarter Wave / T-Line tutorial-UPDATED

Recommended Posts

i just wanted to chime in about forevrbumpn....dude know what hes talking about! he has given me a ton of help and i just built a tline for a single eclipse sw9102 10 and i just metered 144 flat on a new tl in a mits montero suv sealed up. maybe some have heard a single 10 hit that but i dont think its too common especially since it street plays great! hits every note. im gonna try a few other subs over the next couple days. ps dont bother trying a l7 kicker  :-X qts sucks! thank bumpn!

T-lines and folded horns are fun. I built plenty of both in the past few years. By far the best overall sounding boxes. I could never get one to kick ass on a meter. The wife's got a T-line with 2 Selenium Xtremes for her daily driver.

I dont care what people say about pro audio, Seleniums are bad ass, even tho Iam sure your talking about the mobile line. I would like to try some of there PA sub woofers. Eff of like 102db, and Fs of like 40hz, would be a insteresting  sub set up...

And yeah, I agree, metereing tlines is hard to do for spl, only because if you tune them wrong, and put to much power to them, you can easily bottom out your woofers, cause some damage to them. Thats why its best to keep your max power to your sub, in a tline, to about the rms point of the woofer- Just in case

But like King said, they are fun, because you can impress your friends by saying, "Yeah, I have 1-10" and 250 watts" and look at the expressions on thier face, when they find out your telling the truth, and dont have some 15s back there

I love the looks I get when I run them. I get the " it's that flee market crap" till I show them what they can do on a 200w amp :^

I will be upgrading my front stage to their pa line this next year. 3 way setup with horns.

I've seen the PA 18's at the Namm show that I would love to mess around with

that would be awesome, all pro audio. This company I worked for, proved you can use pro audio in a mobile/ marine envirnment... Look at the Skylon Rubicon 450 tower speakers, and the 350s, all horn and accordian surround, and they sound awesome. We played around with them in home audio, and car audio set ups too.

I forgot to throw this drawing of the box from a side- its on PAINT, but the red lines are shown as measuring points. which are very important-obviously

so, measuring port length would be directly down the center of the port(the redline) correct? do you have to make any adjustments when measuring that, due to the 45's??
