I got a t3 tsns 15 that I'm going to be powering with a saz-3000d. I am going to be doing 4cuft but am unsure about the tuning. I was thinking 30 or 31 but I've heard they like higher. I'm not really looking for a comp box and want it to destroy the lows.

I have a pic of a TSNS 18, i'll put it up tonight if you want. I put it in my box i had for an mt 18 dual .7, and i had two 2500d's on it, and two kinetik 2400's out back, and a yellow top up front, and the tsns was dual 1 and i used both 2500d's, both did the exact same #, I believe it was like a 151.8 at the dash..
They are heavier than all of he11 though I tell you, way heavier than a freaking MT 18

^Thanks for the offer but I've already seen them, played with and repaired them.

BTW OP I have a friend who has 2 15in recone kits straight from T3 if ya ever need one.

30 or 31 hz ported??Just go sealed then..Did the same thing to my t1rf subs went to 35 hz then 32hz 5cuft was the best for me but some songs didn't sound to good. Then I went to 4cuft sealed and **** night and day with the sealed with the lolows..IMO ANYTHING UNDER 32HZ SHOULD GO SEALED FOR THE LOLOWS SQ WISE.. who makes that sub thank

I'm at work right now but will post some pics of it when I get home. Its an older style with the 12 spoke basket. Its a beast though. 70lbs. By far the heaviest woofer I've ever had

I have a design for a 35hz w/ 4.2 cuft, would that be good? if its not good with the lows, I can lengthen the port a bit.

Since when does the TSNS use a 12 spoke basket...?

And yes that very much seems to be rust.

there was a little surface rust but it came right off. i got it straight from jd, he said it was from several years, 5-6, ago so its a little different from the newer ones.he gave me a deal though that i couldnt refuse

Just for future reference if someone else gets this sub and need a box idea, I went 4.1cuft after all displacements, tuned to 34-35hz. Sounds great. Gets the lows very well and still gets stupid loud. Car was peaking at 43hz w/ old subs tuned to 38hz. Now it peaks around 37-38hz but is louder. Now I just need to be metered.
