    I guess it's recone time.. What would cause this?

    Hopefully all goes well with the curing process. Do you guys think I used enough clamps?

    Welp, ordered my recone kit and did some prep on the sub still need to finish the spider landing. This will be my first recone. Used some cheap sound deadner to cover the coil gap, it pulls off clean.

    That makes sense. What is the point of running at 4ohm at all? Also, so any amount of clip hurts the sub? I thought that a soft clip was typically how people set their gains.

    That makes sense, I knew I COULD do it that way, but thought I shouldn't given I do not have the proper electrical. So if I understand this correctly, at 4ohm it pushes the amp hard but with less power and at 1ohm it wouldn't push the amp as hard? Also, something that has never been clarified to me is, if I tune with a -10db and a song has -5db bass notes, am I definitely clipping? Do you clip as soon as you hit 0db? Its like when is too much? I've always heard when you can smell the coil or when the sub gets hot, never smelt my coil and the sub never got past luke warm.. I dont understand lol, I am making a concious effort to learn this stuff, typically I'm learning from mistakes. So if you set 2 of the same amps, one at 1ohm and the other 4ohm, set the gains to say -5db on the 4ohm, then voltage matched the 1ohm. The 4ohm would be dirtier power? If so, why? This is where my knowledge falls kinda flat, I don't know the intricacies of how ohms law works in real world application. I've never seen a tinsel blow because of clipping, why would that happen? Also, what about the spider? It ripped in like 4 or 5 places. @PPVtahoe11, @Jeffdachef If I'm coming off as being a smart@$$ or a d!ck, I promise I'm not intending to come off that way. I legitimately want to learn from you guys that actually know wtf you are doing. The people I work with including my boss know so little in comparison to even me when it starts to get in depth. I want to learn my dudes.

    Uh, no sir. It's supposed to be black on this sub. My thought as well, I had it for about 2.5 years. I run at 4ohm because of wattage. I know that it won't exceed what I can safely put out while at 4ohm. Has nothing to do with not clipping. I simply dont have the electrical to support an oopsie. I know you can't hear it, hence why I use an o scope. It looks shiny to me, might be just the pics. Wire at 1ohm turn down gain or wire at 4ohm normal gain set; same difference. Do you disagree?

    I never audibly heard clipping, nor did anyone else. That's not to say it DIDN'T, but the coil appears to be perfectly fine. I mainly play music in the 20s, it makes sense to me that I caused a mechanical death through over excursion.

    @shredder2, @THATpurpleKUSH, @PPVtahoe11, @MattinMO What ya'll think? Was I pushing her a little too hard? I "may" have played some clean boosted stuff (djsnt, etc. ) Oops. It appears to me, the main issue was the blown tinsel, although I apparently f'd my spider while I was at it. The coil is perfectly fine. How does clipping affect tinsel or spider? It would be the mechanical movement that would mess with it, yes? That burnt spot on the spider where the tinsel was intrigued me. Can someone explain what I have done? I'm trying to learn the ways, all ya'll are who I come to for learning.

    I'm ordering a recone kit, I'm gonna cut her open and inspect.

    4ohm so (2200W approx), -10db with a DD-1 & DSONanov3 o-scope.
  11. Sub stopped working while playing, a couple days ago. Just today had time to finger out what was the deal. Blew out a tinsel apparently. Did I do this? If so, What did I do that would have caused this?

    Yeah, they are pretty f'in cool. Haven't got to hear them yet, but with an Fs of 27hz a 28hz tune should be awesome. I wanted something different, that not a ton of people have. Tired of all the cookie cutter.

    How's it going guys, I have a SCV-7500D that I'm going to try running at .5ohm (once my electrical upgrades are finished.) I am going to be buying 2 RF T3 19s (after I get a 3rd gen Tahoe) and I'm curious if anyone has any experience with them and if you think the 7500d will be too much for them? I am going to tune at 28hz and hopefully destroy those lows and my tahoe.
  15. Actually not from Amp Lab, but they were my second choice if this deal fell through. Local dude had 4 nsv3s and 2 7500s out of his demo 4runner and was selling it all. my sundowns could never handle that, need funky pups for that or maybe one of these.
