seriously though... i'm interested to see if you can maintain anything resembling an OEM look with a 10" midbass... how exactly do you plan on placing it? whats the door panel look like currently?

they're goin in doorpods if at all possible.

In the factory location, no less.

The pod is going to ecompass the entire area that used to be my map pocket, and then the speaker will be tilted into the footwell 30 degrees or so, directed at the opposite seat.

the tweeter and midbass will be above the midbass.

it's gonna be a design as i go procedure, for sure.

are you sure you guys are still talking about speaker sizes?

heyman421
10-18-2006, 05:15 PM
hahaha

do any of you actually have your big drivers installed yet?

how do you like them?

i did this purely out of impulse from being completely disappointed with my last setup, i've never actually heard anything larger than a 6.75" in a car.

this was really just an overexaggerated reaction to everything i didn't like about my previous install......... the install's going to be a *****, but i know it's gonna be worth it

and to whoever asked, everything including my x'overs was ~$600 shipped. Not bad, imo.

Of course I have em installed, so far lovin em, but I gotta give them some time to see how I Will like them. For reference here they are:

those are beautiful, 6speed.

i looked at those, as well, but they were a bit outside my budget.

and theCybe, let's wait until i see how the install turns out before you make any arrangements in your datebook ;) i didn't fully realize what i was up against.

for some reason, a picture on the internet, and a ruler, don't really convey the full gravity of trying to fit these things into a car install........ i'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

speaking of which, iloveslp, the opti4000D is in today, and the thing is a MONSTER!!!! It's WAY bigger than i could have ever imagined, and the thing's gotta weigh about 50lbs!!!!

Opti500x2's still not here, tho. I'm expecting it any day. that's gonna be powering the components.

and ya, that's spanning the arms of my office chair. The thing is quite large.

ups shipping label says 8lbs., but it feels like it's built like a tank.

can't wait to fire it up.

Welcome to the Opti club .... I'm sure you will be very happy with it. And yes they are built like a tank. 8 lbs? Someone saved money on shipping ...

(ignore the RF amp ... its gone)

hey squeak, what did you end up with in your doors?

your old posts about wanting to put 10's in your doors turned the light on in my head that it was possible... and then much to my dismay you said you never got around to it...

what's your setup now?

hey squeak, what did you end up with in your doors?

Right now....just the remnants of my now defunct temporary install :)


your old posts about wanting to put 10's in your doors turned the light on in my head that it was possible... and then much to my dismay you said you never got around to it...

Much to my dismay...that install never went down. Sadly sold the equipment about a year or so ago. Such is life.....


what's your setup now?

Would having 8" woofers with 9mm Xmax in the doors, put you in the Big Midbass Club? :D

I'm not kidding... the 8" woofers in my doors, have 7/8" inch LONG voice coil windings. With a 1/4" thick pole piece, that's 5/8" total overhang, or about 16mm. Divide by two and multiply by 1.15 (which is the standard definition of Xmax as specified by ALMA, the American Loudspeaker Manufacturing Association, calculating from geometry), and you get 9.1mm...

The fun thing? It's a readily-available woofer from a '70s-to-early-'80s Genesis Physics home speaker, that works GREAT in IB in a car door. They made thousands of them... I've got a stash of about 22 extra woofers, that I've gotten and fixed/rebuilt. Don't think I'll be running out of spares anytime soon, even if I build a 9-woofer-per-side home line array speaker out of 18 of them, like I've been casually "planning" for several years...

Amazing how much output they can put out, from 22w/ch (Proton 222) on them... they're flat from 25-400 Hz. No subs, THEY are the ONLY woofers needed!

Regards,
Gordon.

i'm not an authority, but i would consider anything bigger than a 6.75" quite large for a car......

like i said, i've never even heard 8's, 9's or 10's, i just wanted to do something new.

Morel Supremo 9s.

Conserative 200W RMS rating.

SRP for set with Piccolo tweet is: $2200

Driver alone SRP is: $799

Can come as a raw driver or paired with the Piccolo tweets, currently the set is only active.

Haha, i'm gonna get started TONIGHT.

Been waiting all week.

I honestly don't know what my plan is, i didn't want to think about it too much until i actually had the drivers in my hand.

I'm taking the camera, tho, so i'll let ya know what i come up with!

I'm thinking the drivers will be alighned vertically, tho, and aimed toward the opposing seating position, of course.

My only real criteria, is i want to make them as flush with the door as possible, and have room inside the enclosure to mount the HUGE ugly *** x'overs, so that i only have to run one set of speaker wire to the doors, and into the enclosure (less $, less work, and less chance for leaks)

I'll get the pics up later, tho. I'm hoping to get the holes cut in my door, and finish the back of the enclosure tonight, as well as upholster and mount the covers i made for my rear doors while these dry.

how do they differ from those in partexpress(HU9.1) and do they play clearly till 2khz? and is the hexagonal voice coil and external voice coil claim is true (plays very accuratly and tonal balance is excellents...)?

looks like some heavy technology went through these little beasts!!! the voice coil is bigger than my 15" sub LoL.


also, how do they compare to them Rainbows:up2somet: ?
