    My 12" Eclipse / TC Sounds 3hp motor hybrid subs

    Some of you expressed interest in seeing my reconed Eclipse titanium subs so here they are...












    I was told that they're very close to an Audiopulse Axis, they laughed at 1000 watts each so I suppose it's quite accurate. Too bad the huge prefab box ****** and they blew a panel loose, I suppose that gives me the excuse to make my own haha. No amps to run them either...

    It's a shame Das Bot covered up so much of the cone with that huge cap. Pretty clean drivers, though.

    On a more trivial note - Did you happen to notice that you have both versions (castings) of the Ti basket?

    Now that you mentioned it, they do look a little different, it was like that from Eclipse though, must of been from different batches.

    Anyone in the central Wisconsin area? $500 for both you come pick it up hahahaaha... but seriously.



    I think the box I want to make for them are going to be at least 5 cubic feet common chamber with one slot port tuned to 32 Hz, think that's a good idea? I'm going to go for at least 3000 watts RMS total since they seem to like power.
