Item(s) for Sale:
Phoenix Gold Cyclone BNIB
Rotary Servo Subwoofer.
Purchased from a local authorized shop who sold them back in 1996. I saw several installs they did with them and always wanted one. A few years ago, a salesman admitted they still had a BNIB one in back. I snagged it with best intentions. It just isn't going to be used anytime soon.
These rotary subwoofers require maintenance. This is essentially a DC motor after all. The magnets need to be "cleaned" periodically. This procedure is well documented. I will share this process with any serious buyer (email description). I have not yet done this and am willing to sell as-is for a DIY person to save some money. If you want me to disassemble, clean, and re-assemble I will, but price jumps to $600.
This has never been installed, has never seen any power. There is nothing to rot or fail with time.
I have original specs, enclosure recommendations, etc. Best powered by a 2 channel Class AB amp bridged with 150W RMS.
Best ran with dedicated midbass woofers for midbass impact. This is a "smooth, buttery" subwoofer capable of very, very low frequency reproduction. I've heard 10Hz out of these things with surprisingly high output levels.
Frequency Response 11Hz to 60Hz *but lower is certainly available since it's just a DC motor.
Nominal Impedance 8 Ohms
Continuous Power Handling 300 WRMS *150W is recommended at 8 ohms.
Power Compression < 1.5dB @ full power @ 15 Minutes
Sensitivity 90dB 1W/1M
Maximum Excursion 38 Degrees p-p Linear Rotation
Required Crossover >18dB Per Octave, <60Hz
Mounting Depth 12 7/8"
Mounting Hole Diameter 11 1/8"
Speaker Displacement 0.5 cu.ft.
$450 shipped, or best offer as-is.
$600 shipped if I clean the magnets.
If you are wondering why the price seems high, try finding another one, let alone BNIB...
