Project Flexington: 160.3db @ 37hz!! Parallel 6th order walk through, DC Neo Elite 18s, 4 DC 5.0ks, JY Lithium, 12 banks of XS Caps

Recommended Posts

So to catch up on pictures, here's where I mounted the subs to the removable baffles.

I used 1/4" bolts with nylon lock washers but was worried the points might tear the surround:

So I ground down 2 of the points, since the heads just fit in the basket, all I had to do to keep them from spinning as I tightened the nuts was apply a bit of pressure with my finger.

Here's a sub mounted in the removable baffle

Subs mounted, gotta say my removable baffle system was worth the time and work, almost no effort to load the subs. It was great!!!!

Crimped some ends, the kolossus fleks 4/0 is massive

Got wire?

Warhorse mounted. Made a temporary buss bar to tide me over until I get my projectdb ones.

Managed to get 4 runs of 1/0 from front to back and one nsb170ft installed. Definitely can tell it will get much louder once I get more electrical installed!

Awsome build. I'm taking notes on your box, I love it. Are those 10s SVC? Where will you cross them over at if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks man! I'm not sure what it am going to cross them over at. I'm planning on getting a dsp in the near future with active crossovers and adjust. And yes they're svc.

On that note, I ordered the DC 175.4 that will be powering the 10s!

I wanna get a demo some day! Dont know if there are any more meets this year tho :/ Wish I could have made it to Fond du Lac last weekend.

Cant wait to see it all done! Looks great!

Thanks guys! Definitely down to demo, it's what I am building it for, just hit me up, my schedule is pretty flexible.

Sealed off the wall tonight and now I'm crimping lugs on more runs of 1/0. I think I've decided to run dedicated grounds instead of using the frame but going to have to wait for another 100ft of black shca 1/0 to get here. Other than that I just need buss bars and hardware for my caps then electrical will be complete :)

      I've been helping a buddy install a system in his 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK.  I finally have enough pics to start a build log, so I'll be loading all of them up over the next couple weeks.
      The requirements were simple: he wanted (4) 8's or nothing at all.  Silly?  Maybe; but we met the requirements and hope to be banging before the end of the year
      The stock sub (an 8x10) has 4 voice coils


      Ran some numbers in TermLab at first, but then switched the design over to WinISD.  Came up with this size enclosure:



      That router feels good man



      Went with PSI-8's with High Performance suspension for 600Wrms per sub

      We were jammin some of that good techno

      The original plan was to have a few tube ports, but I had a hunch that they were too small.  Thats about the time that Triticum came out with his port velocity calculator, and I realized the port velocities with these small ports would give me the tuning we were wanting, but also gave us almost 100 m/s port velocity (yikes!)

      Then the design changed to have a properly sized port attached to the back panel, bringing the velocities down to around 25-30 m/s

      I didnt really trust my kerf skills yet

      More pics coming tomorrow.  Thanks for looking!

      Buddy's new (new to us) amp.  Got it used through Cody at Droppin Hz for a good price.
      Brands inside: 
      CapXon
      Samwha
      Samyoung
      On to the pics:
      Very interesting heat sink




      Amp was built one year ago and warranty is non-transferrable, so off comes the warranty stickers

      Sweep shots



      Details







      Used alcohol to remove the warranty stickers

      Cant wait to get this badboy playing down at half ohm

       I have 3 orion HCCA 152 woofers that im running on some off brand 3500 watt amps.  I wanna go with one solid amp to run all 3 at a 1.33 ohm. this is a daily driver 2003 trailblazer but I want it to hump.  the woofer are rated at 2500rms/5000peak, I currently have 5 d3100's in the back, 1 redtop in the front that I want to change out but need to find a battery that will fit due to the dual alt bracket that holds a 240 mechman and a 370 mechman.  out of these 3 amps, which one would you recommend I run on those 3 woofers with my current setup.  thanks for any assistance you can give me.

      I’ve designed an isobaric 6th order series tuned bandpass enclosure for my wife’s car.  I want to build a series 6th for experience and for science. 
      I have a firm grasp of the ins and outs of WinISD, but I am new to BB6.  So I started with measured values from my ported design with (4) 15’s, which I have dialed into WinISD and is pretty accurate.  Then I modeled the same box in BB6 to see the variation between the two programs and measured values.  That gives me a baseline ‘feel’ for BB6.
      Can someone check my design?  I plan to test and modify the design to optimize the performance, and then I’d like to funnel that real data back into BB6 so I can really get a better feel for the 6th order designs in BB6.
      Here’s what I’ve come up with so far… This got me the most area under the curve but also a decent low end response:
      [INSERT PIC HERE.  I COULDNT PLACE IT HERE WITH DIRECT UPLOAD]
      Low port (for the design shown above) is 6”H x 3”W x 33.3”L, with 2 flared ends
      High port (for the design shown above) is 8”H x 3”W x 8.4”L, with 2 flared ends
      Goal was to keep port velocities under 30 m/s, cone excursion within limits, and boost the low end response without getting a severe dip between the two port tunings.  I really couldn’t bring the high tuned amplitude response down, maybe I need to widen the bandwidth?  Figured widening the bandwidth would cause an undesirable dip in the middle. 
      ***
      Here’s the real measured TS parameters (via IM-SG) for the well-broken-in pair of Pioneer TS-W3003D4’s:
      Dual voice coil, wired in PARALLEL (for measurements below) and both subs wired parallel to the amp.
      Re (parallel, each sub) = 1.6ohm
      Fs = 31.4 Hz
      Vas = 2.822 cu ft
      Qms = 3.706
      Qes = 0.494
      Qts = 0.436
      Mms = 126.9 g
      Cms = 0.203 mm/N
      Dia = 10.2”
      Sd = 81.7 sq in
      Xmax = 14mm one way
      I’d like to set the tuning for the low side at 31ish Hz and tuning on the high side at 63ish Hz.  The subsonic filter setting will be determined via testing after the box is built and tuned to its final state.
      I have about 5 cubic feet total to play with for this isobaric series 6th setup.  I can toy with the final XYZ dimensions, I’m mainly looking for a solid set of values for volumes and port areas & lengths (if the ones I calculated in BB6 are not suffice).  Rectangular ports are preferred but I can do aeroports or kerfed circular port if that’s a better route.  I am competent with woodwork.
      I’ll be starting a build log for this box design and its installation.  Planning to include a lot of measured data (IM-SG and AMM-1).  Really stoked for this build.
      Thank you in advance!
