Yeah, the flames are interesting, but who cares if it performs just as good, if not better than one without the bling? I agree it gets pretty loud.. I am just nervous going off of the manual for the AW1006T as there has to be SOME differences or they wouldn't have given it a new model number. Am I right or just paranoid?
I am looking for Audiobahns information regarding the box size, port size etc.
Crutchfield mentions "Audiobahn recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.714 cu/ft and one 4" diameter x 10.87" long port." but I cannot seem to find this information anywhere as verification.
They also say "The specifications in the Crutchfield database were taken from technical sheets provided by Audiobahn. Per Audiobahn, the specifications in the manual are incorrect. The woofer reviewed by Crutchfield did not come with a manual, but, according to Audiobahn, future shipments of this woofer will include a manual."
I know crutchfield is VERY reliable, but I am one who thrives off of information from multiple sources, not just one. Expecially when they grind on the manual being incorrect.
Yea, I haven't tried an amp through them but so far I am pleased with this sub. I have it in a temporary sealed box (I am in the process of building the ported one), and it matches what Crutchfield says but the sub gets BOILING hot. Like burn to the touch within 20 minutes of use with the Sony XM-2002GTW amp bridged and the subs voice coils ran in parallel.
