    Moving pictures of Paco's twelve 12" Obsidian's build.

    Here's the first video update on Paco's build. We will posting more video's in the up-coming weeks with more progress so stay tuned! Details of the build are mentioned in the video, but key elements are twelve Obsidian Audio 12's in a 4'th order bandpass, two alternators, eight 16 volt batteries, etc.

    Picture of Steven and Paco getting ready to add a little more to the build today. Over Steven's shoulder are all the runs of the flat 3 awg power and ground wire to go from the amp bus bars to the amps and Paco is holding one of the two 4500D's that he will be running. I will upload a video of the progress in a few minutes after it finishes uploading to YouTube.

    The beast is playing! Temporary setup for now, but at least it's playing. It's freakin nasty!

    Ok, I linked the wrong video in the post above. Try this link for video of the Obsidian build playing:

    We are going to try to play it again after hours. We had a guy "walk two blocks" to ask us to turn it down because he could hear it in his living room earlier.

    The camper shell is on it now and a few items have been ironed out (such as one sub wasn't playing and three weren't mounted properly so there were air leaks) since that video. We may throw it on the meter and see how it does.

    I'm doing 149 dB with a single 15" Obsidian, so Paco is WELL into the 150's with this build. It has a NASTY peak in the high 40's that makes you feel like your throat is imploding.

    30 Hz. Paco is going to build a loading wall if the peak doesn't drop during testing tomorrow. The peak was in the high 40's, which is where it hurts, but that was without the camper shell, the gasket, expanding foam, and both doors wide open. We will see how it turns out tomorrow when we put it on the meter.

    Just metered it three times and I am very stoked about the result!!!! Keep in mind this is with zero tuning. Just playing as-is with multiple things to be fixed. Video uploading now...
