    2x Skar VVX 15s tuned low

    Just thought I would post this here because I like reading peoples comments xD

    The woofers compared to the old DC Level 2 12 that was in the enclosure. Don't ask why one logo is larger than the other... I have no clue lol




    The Enclosure that used to house my dc lvl 2 12:

    I always **** up painting wood haha, so I decided to use something that would basically be idiot proof. Painting metal however I can do some nice work :P

    Color doesn't look right in the pics, its more of a gray color.

    It was actually originally for a single 12. It is 4.4 cubic feet tuned to 26hz

    Re: 2x Skar VVX 15s tuned low

    Well I hadn't modeled the woofer before deciding to buy it as Skar had a decent rep on CACO... I wish I had. It is a nice driver but their recommended box volumes are way off! Likely to increase the audience that would purchase them. The motor is way too weak for the displacement of air that it has to move.

    Green: 4.4 Cubes (2.2 Per woofer)(Min Rec by Skar) - f3 = 34Hz
    Red: 8 Cubes (4 per woofer) - f3 = 28Hz
    Blue: 16 Cubes (8 per woofer for shits and giggles) - f3 = 20Hz! (Awesome)

    Enlarge in imageshack.



    Its sad that the motors are so weak that you need at least 4 cubes per woofer (more than max rec.) to get good low end from subs that are advertised as low end monsters.

    For some odd reason I have seen VVX15s with recommended specs get super low and sound great doing it. They must know cheatz

    I don't doubt they do when you factor in cabin gain... Sorry, I am just disappointed.
