    What is this exactly??

    Hey guys so this is my first post, so if this isn't in the right spot I apologize. Anyways I bought 2 Kicker 12 inch CVR's, and they came in a bandpass box. Well, I was looking at how they were wired, and whoever wired them did a sh*t job and just used old wire they had lying around.

    Anyways, I decided to redo it, and pulled the subs out. After I pulled them out I noticed this piece glued in the bottom of one of the chambers. I have never seen one of these before, and wasn't sure if it had to be there, or if I could take it out.

    Also, I noticed that whoever wired these subs last, drilled a small hole between the 2 chambers to wire up the subs. So I'm not quite sure what this little spindle would be for. If someone could tell me I'd appreciate it! What is this exactly??-20171012_224353_320x240.jpgWhat is this exactly??-20171012_224406_320x240.jpgClick image for larger version

    That's a coil. To drown out all the unnecessary freq to the subs. I bought my 1st 8 and was told I need a coil to go with it. x-overs at the time weren't around yet.

    Re: What is this exactly??

    Thanks for the reply. So I've hooked up a few systems, but can't say that I've ever had to use one of these. Is it mandatory that it gets used? I have dvc 2 ohm subs and a 1000 watt jl audio at 2 ohm so I was going to wire the speakers accordingly, but how would i incorporate the coil into the mix?

    That coil isn't needed, thanks to new technology. Hook up subs to amp like normal.

    Almost looks like one of them insect/pest traps for use in home lol

    Lol ya I was a little confused because I've never seen one. But I've really never used bandpass boxes too much either, so I didn't know if it was something specific to these that I needed to use. But thanks for the help. I'm going to just hook em up like normal then!
