    RLP owners come in and help me out.

    I have a RLP 15d4 running of a Kenwood Kacx811d @ 2 ohms around 900 ish watts.

    It seems it doesnt move much excursion wise, I was playing it near full tilt tonight playing The blues man chopped and screwed from Llyod.

    So what I want to know is if you have an rlp 15, what kinda power are you throwing at it and does it get moving?


    Am I overreacting because I think it sounds good but I just think it should be moving much more than it does.

    SS says it has 25 mm xmax and should reach full excusion with 600-700 watts.

    Also its in a ported enclosure tuned to 35 hz around 3.3 cubes.


    Opinions please.



    I wanna go to where the women are easy and the drugs are cheap, and we all stay skinny cuz we just won't eat!!

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    I run 2 off a SAZ-1500D and they get moving nicely and get plenty loud.

    That 35Hz tune must sound like ***. I tried mine at 34Hz and hated it, NO bottom end or punch at all.

    If all your settings are right I'd try a box at 30-32Hz. Best mix of SQL I found was 32Hz...

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    I was actully considering going sealed with it but am afraid I will lose all my output.
    It sounds good just dont seem to be moving and I am afraid something is wrong, Im gonna break out the dmm tomorrow and check some stuff.

    maybe I should just sell the **** thing and buy a 10" sub and runa sealed setup and ahve my whole back end back.........

    maybe the song peaks near your tuning, if so the sub won't be moving much

    Possible I will have to ask Lloyd what the song peaks at.

    I seriously hope that you don't think that changing from a 35 hz tuning to a 32 hz tuning makes a significant difference...

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    his is directly from Lloyds post about the song....

    the first frequency is 37hz, then 49hz, then 55hz, then back down to 37hz...

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    i dont get it, are you not satisfied with the output? why do you want your sub to 'move more'

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    I am satisfied with the sound but I think it should move more.I think it should have better output.

    I watch all these vids from members and their subs move alot more than mine no matter size and power.

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    if you want movement, and i dont see why you'd care about how much it moves, the rl-p will probably have more excursion sealed on the lower notes. if you want output, stick to what you have and who gives a **** how much its moving.

    Re: RLP owners come in and help me out.

    I asked the same question in the SSA forums a year ago. It does seem like it should* move more. I had it in a 3.15ft^3@ 28Hz powered by a JL e1800d. In my case, all I had to do was turn the ssf off, but since it was a large investment for me, i played it safe by lowering the power to about 600 watts.

    I have my RL-p15 in a 2.1 cuft. sealed now which is what I personally prefer.

    I think this is the route I am going.......

    do you still have decent output going sealed and reducing the power to 600 watts?
