    Whoops, a newbie blew his sub!

    Can you tell us a little about your setup? What size box and what’s the tuning? What amp/ohm load or how much power are you running? Gain settings,bass boost (hopefully none) , etc. Too many variables we don’t know for anyone to be real helpful. My best guess though is clipping killed your sub.

    First off let me start off with I’m interested. Secondly I’m curious to know what happened that made you instantly realize the box was too small? Why not just build a bigger box for it?

    JLJunkie's Retarded Budget Build

    Definitely nice meeting you too @JLJunkieMX107 . I thought the Blaus sounded great man and definitely had plenty of output. Your windshield had some nice little flex to it when you turned it up. For the money invested in the subs it’s amazing and makes me want to get something going in my truck. Very pleasantly surprised at the heft of that sub I got from you man. I feel like I have so much to do before that show, I really need to get off my ***. Matter of fact I think I’m gonna go try to find my peak right now lol ! Keep me updated on that 6th.

    So I just ordered 4 of these...

    I went to buy one of the Blaupunkt tens today just to play around with and they’ve raised the price on those fuckers now too. 34.99 a piece now. Bastards

    Lovin' this 4th order

    [quote name='THATpurpleKUSH']I'm more of a consultant rather than a designer lol. Winisd wont give you any useful information below the point where cabin gain kicks in which is generally below 50hz, which is about 80-90% of the response curve. What I'm able to do is use Bass Box pro to plot various designs like winisd but with far greater accuracy. I can get you volumes, tuning and port area as well as all of the necessary curves and plots which i can export to a pdf and email, but I don't have a clue when it comes to using sketchup, hence I am reluctant to call myself a full blown designer. I really need to learn sketchup but thats not a super high priority for me at this time. I do have an spl lab meter if you ever wanted to do some testing, we don't live too far away from each other. @shredder2 did you ever play around with the low end response to get a feel for the limitations? I'm curious how low it plays with authority. When you still had the Blazer did you try different port firing orientations or loading distances?[/QUOTE] Hell if I just had volumes and port size I can work from there. I’d pay you for your trouble of course. Going to be a while before I get those 8 Blaus into something but I thought about building something to toss into the back of my truck to hit a show or two. Kinda ***** I have a Silverado double cab which is tight on space as it is but I absolutely have to keep the back seats because the kids are in there daily. I’d love to throw something together and compete again and it would be awesome if I could find my note before hitting a show. Do you plan on hitting the show in Tipton,MI on August 18th ?

    @THATpurpleKUSH do you design 4ths? I’ve been ******* around in WinISD but I don’t really know **** about 4ths. Thought about trying one for my 8 Blaupunkt 12’s

    I’m sure someone around here has got to have a meter but I don’t personally know of anyone. I might get one once I start my build but that’s a while out yet

    I’ve been watching the website everyday waiting for them to go back down some. I already have 8 of the 12’s but I’d like to get four more at least. They are definitely worth the current price they are asking but I have a hard time paying that when they were like 1/3 of that a few weeks ago.
