    got a DD1512a ...

    ...off CL, and i need a lil info.

    I met the seller because when I asked what model DD 12 he had, he sent a screenshot of the DD 35 series page and said he wanted 80 for it. A 3512 for 80... pffft, i was on it, lol.

    Met him and found him holding a beat-up 1512. I wasn't very pleased, but kindly informed him of what he really had, and I told him I'd take it for 40. So I took it home and unbent the two spots that were hiding under the mounting ring gasket, and dabbed some epoxy on the 2 punctures in the surround... It's ok now.

    Anyone know what volume/port area/tuning this likes for daily beating? I was going to tune it in the higher 30's to try and wring the most spl out of it on 5-600 wrms as possible, and it still sound ok on music. Also, when I get to it, what should I sell it for in the enclosure? It's going to be plywood that's well-sanded, primered, and painted black.

    Tune it to 36, it'll be the perfect all-rounder, 40 bucks was a helluva deal.

    even with a bent flange(just the flange, not the rest of the basket), and a couple of holes in the surround, lol? And the coils slightly dark, but not burnt up. Just kinda cherry in color.

    Better than most 40$ subs, Those DD's are definitely the best stamped basket subs ive messed with.

    It seems pretty well built for a 2" coil sub. I figured it was worth it to play with, and sell later. I wouldn't have given him more than twenty if I'd seen under the gasket though... I just DMM'd the coil and said "ok", lol
