View Full Version : comps wont play below 80htz?

12-16-2006, 04:54 PM
recently, my AA poly's have been sounding really crappy below 80htz, they used to play real nice and smooth, but now, between 80and 100htz, they make a terrible, kind of air-escaping noise when they move a lot in those frequencies.

BTW they're in fiberglass kicks..

does anyone have any suggestions as to what it'd be? here's what ive done to try to alleviate the problem..

-non hardening clay where the speaker meets the kick to make sure there was no air leaks

- 2 additional layers of fiberglass inside the kicks to make sure there were no air leaks

-tried polyfil, actually made it worse.

-Fixed the tinsel slap that was mentioned on here a few days ago.. did nothing.

anyone have any other suggestions?

ohh, also, Gain set at 90rms, -12db slope, crossover @ 80 htz (tried 100, and 125 htz, made little to no diffrence)

Dying VC's?

Tried playing all of the components with no eq, flatline, etc...?

All I can think of.

yeah, make new kicks.

make them larger? smaller? not sure on the exact dimensions of these ones

thinking they may be to small?
