single 15" ported, lowest F3?
I am looking at purchasing a 15" sub for 600-800RMS, which I want to be able to tune into the mid/low 20Hz range. Box will be fiberglass, probably around 3.5 cubes give or take. Obviously I am not trying to win an SPL competition with that tuning frequency and power rating.
I have searched but haven't found any comparisons of resonance frequencies specifically for getting low. Certainly there are a ton of useless vs. threads but I haven't gleaned a lot of useful information from them.
My initial impression was to go Obsidian 15" because it looks like the F3 is just a little lower than Sundown. I want to be able to enjoy it daily and not have it overpower my other Morel components. The car is built for racing and weight is a concern, so I won't buy a subwoofer that has an 80 pound magnet for looks.
I haven't bought the sub amp yet and was considering something that won't sound like crap, but also don't need a McIntosh either. Maybe Sundown, or if cheaper will be ok, a PPI Black Ice.
I also have a 5th channel available on my primary ARC Audio amplifier with 200w RMS for 4 ohms only, and considered running a sealed 10" for midbass in addition to the 15 but think it might be a waste of time and space.
My system: Pioneer/Morel/Arc Audio
Profession: Sound engineer. One of the best.
