After 9 months this showed up. She is a beast at 21”, 48.1 lbs, 5,000 watts RMS, and identifies as a fridge that is going into a 6th order dual reflex bandpass enclosure. I have always been big in audio reproduction. I bought my first car stereo before I had a car to put it in and used to compete in the IASCA (international car audio competition) Sound Quality challenge. My stereo cost way more than my car for a long time. Even though my wife enjoys it. She would not allow me to do what I want with the home audio. She just doesn’t like the look of speakers and the space they take up. When I started to build my shop last year she told me that is the place I can put my radio. So I did with a system that would put most night clubs to shame. I currently have 4 15” speakers in each corner that would be plenty for most people. But there was something missing from 60 Hz and lower. This tour grade concert speaker should fill that void. I was going to make 2 of them but thought that would be silly. I have done my best to soundproof the shop with 6” of rock wool in all the walls and ceiling with a layer of mass loaded vinyl. The garage door still needs some help. If my little 12” sub rattles my soffits I can’t wait to hear what this thing does.
Who else has a passion for audio?
Attached is the frequency response at 1,000 watts. This is not my enclosure design. This devastator design came from Red Five.
