You listen to classical music and you bought a 12 inch Audiobahn woofer??? You seriously need to re-evaluate your subwoofer decision. Get something that's designed more for sound quality - Audiobahn is trash.

I'm sorry, but that's wrong :)

Classical/baroque music often times has more subsonic content in it than rap does...it's just lower in frequency and actually is more demanding on a system to reproduce correctly.

I use orchestral tracks to test my systems...because nothing else can top it for dynamic range and yes, deep subbass content. Listen to something like Telarc's version of the 1812 Overture and tell me you don't need a powerful subbass stage to keep up...or TSO's Carol of the Bells, for more modern orchestra stuff.

I do agree that the choice of Audiobahn was the wrong one, though :D

my friend has a 12 aw1206t in his car and it hits hard with a audiobahn mono 550 amp so i dont think audiobahn is trash, i have 2 6.5 audibahns in my front door panels..i know most people diss agree with that..

Audiobahn does make hard-hitting woofers, but they are also some of the worst sounding woofers I've ever heard. On top of that, Audiobahn woofers have a tendency to blow easily.
Classical requires a lot of bass response, but it also requires a lot of CLEAN bass response. I can't imagine listening to Bethoven with a 12" Audiobahn in the trunk... that would be hideous.

for everyone who ansered about the classical, i was just joking. i guess some people DO actually listen to that.
"i listen to classical, and i want it to be somewhere beteween 1-50 db."
and yea the sub is garbage but hey it was cheap as monkey sh*t. it's a 12" and is 49 1/2 LBS. So what would be a reasonable price for a box like this?

Just find a friend who has a circular/table saw and a router/rotozip/dremel and build a box. Should only take about 40 bucks worth of supplies if you want to go sealed. Seeing as how it is an Audiobahn you may as well go ported.... in which case it wouldn't take much more $$ to build it yourself.
My answer: No matter what you do, you will get hosed if you have someone else build it.

because throwing 6 pieces of mdf in a square doesnt mean it will be a sufficient box for a sub. He would have to pay for plans at least if he did want to build it himelf. Plus i got him covered. Im building one for him the same price as a prefab a local place he went to quoted him, I'd say thats **** good.

it is crappy sound quality. Hitting hard is not the desired effect of classical music. Overpowering crunchy bass is all you get from audiobahn. He should of looked into an Adire Shiva or something similar for his desired music. They can go in a nice sealed box and wont overpower the rest of the speakers while prducing tight acurate bass.

was responding to one particular post hence the quoting of the post. After i respnded to that post I moved on through the thread where you stated it was a joke seen no need to edit my post cause it was true as a response to him.
