    Actual recone process is quite easy. DJ can walk you through the steps if you can't find someone to help.

    I did my first recones a few weeks ago on 2 HDC's. Bought them blown for a good price. I run copper coils with 3k per sub. I've done 10-15 minute demo's at full tilt with no issues. Give em a clean signal and they'll pretty much live forever on 2k.

    I burped at 31Hz which is 7Hz below box tuning and at 4.5k per sub I might have hurt one as it made a bad flapping sound. I think one pair of amps went into protect, so a single 15" in 8.5cubes is NOT good. But it's been playing fine ever since, so the recone is still sitting in the box.
    Sweet, thats good to know See, just like I said, you learn something new everyday

    BTW check your amp. I had an amp send dc voltage to the output and fried my Brahma. Weird thing is the amp seemed fine at first (no protection light or power failure) until i measured it on a resistive load and it was throwing dc .

    Ahhh tis a nice beach style beer, just like Corona. Ive only recently seen them around, first time I got one actually was at a bar around here that had them on special for like 2 bucks.

    I hear ya on the school crap. I have to pay half my tuition by friday, which is like 4500 bucks and I still need all my books and stuff. Not to mention, I have a shift kit to put in the trans on my cougar, paint the rockers on that, and fix a weld on the exhaust. Not to mention I need to build this XXX, make a box for it, wire in my new front stage amp and 3 new sets of RCA's, and then I get to mess with all the active features in my 9887

    Oh why does summer have to come to an end I almost wish I was taking a semester off.

    Why would this hurt coils?
    Those coils alu or copper can handle that thermal power......
    Dmm's are trash when setting up amps. There worst than guessing IMO.

    oscope is the only way to go when trying to figure if its clipping or not period.

    And those coils can't take 2k for long.


    Im not saying, that they can't take it, for short listening terms, but when they start smelling and he keeps playing=blown coil. PERIOD!
