    Re: 165+ dB Testing @ Sundown

    We did some testing last night one vs. one woofer... stock Z v.3 compared to Z v.3 with ONE extra spider (Yellow spider pack). One on one it made a very substantial gain. Have to build a mate for it to try two subs (coming soon)



    So we will also be making a set with TWO extra spiders (Red NS v.3 spider pack) compared to stock to see if it keeps going or tapers off.

    Re: 165+ dB Testing @ Sundown

    At lower power the Yellow spiders were about 2.5dB louder than the stock black ones; but at high power only 0.1-0.2 dB louder. So this means we need to look elsewhere to make gains -- such as stronger motors, tweaking the cabin and box, etc.

    Very cool information to have on hand, though, in case anyone is doing a lower clamped power class with a similar big 4th order

    Derrick is still working hard on it in the mean-time.

    Currently 6x Z v.3 15" Dual-1 with stock spiders and NS v.2 coils (pulled from the Yard Sale... these are not optimized for the Terra) on 3x NS-1 v.2 amplifiers.

    Photo is from the TDH show in Virginia this past weekend; certified 3x dB Drag Score.
