    Thinking of building a new sub

    Considering tearing down one of my 15" ceramic sigs to make a 10" with it. I don't know what I'd possibly do with it, but it's something I've wanted to mess with. Not sure what coil or suspension I'd even use, but I kind of want to do it just to see what it looks like.

    Discuss.

    that would be nasty. but i feel like the surround will limit the motors abilities. correct me if im wrong. unless you have a nice tall basket.

    Surrounds are pretty wide on the old stock Shocker 10" cones.

    All the 12 spoke baskets generally limit when the spider hits the top plate. I suspect I could space it up for a little more rearward stroke, but with a coil long enough to keep the gap full you'll actually find bottom.

    Re: Thinking of building a new sub

    Tough choice which dustcap to go with. I have a few unique small carbon fiber caps, some prototype Shocker dustcaps, older Sundown caps, a couple Kove Armageddon caps, and a few others. I really like the large Shocker cap or the RF HX2 cap:






    Opted for the concave carbon fiber/kevlar one. It's very solid and I trimmed it up to fit nice with the edge of the surround. Actually I was having second thoughts of the low MMS from the Aluminum coil...




    * f(s)= 47.78 Hz
    * R(e)= 5.35 Ohms
    * Z(max)= 37.11 Ohms
    * Q(ms)= 3.095
    * Q(es)= 0.521
    * Q(ts)= 0.446
    * V(as)= 11.040 liters (0.390 cubic feet)
    * L(e)= 3.57 mH
    * n(0)= 0.22 %
    * SPL= 85.53 1W/1m
    * M(ms)= 189.30 grams
    * C(ms)= 0.06 mm/N
    * BL= 24.15


    Has decent potential for SPL and could be made to play down into mid to high 30's relatively flat with some 50-55hz cabin gain working for you.

    Was trying to break the 12" neo to do something else with. Once I get my alternator back in I'll try to break some 15's. I'm trying to free up some neo motors to play with.... I wasn't impressed with the cosmetics of the parts on this ceramic so I tore that one down. Can probably recycle the coil with an acetone bath, so a minor loss in parts.

    Won't be terribly practical I think. Inverse mounting should work and be good for some laughs.
