    4 6.5" Massive Audio Hippo XL subs enclosure

    "Sigh"... Looking at that green grass means a temperate climate... and makes me "green" with envy at the moment... lol... its forecast high of 112 today here. How much amplifier power is the guy going to be using? Did you design the enclosure or just build it?

    Any Spl predictions?

    Eventually that's the plan. 1st 110 degree assault of the summer is currently happening here in Phx... And I'm waiting on FI to ship the recone. I hope it cools off a little bit by then.

    Looks pretty big as well... ought to sound pretty much the same too. I'm glad it was what you were after Op.

    I'd measure 1/2 front radius to 1/2 rear radius for length, as long as you're close the tuning change ought to be slight anyways if a roundover bit is used. If actually flared it will change but only slightly and the same way of measuring length ought to apply. The displacement changes using a small flare ought to be slight, using a roundover even less. OP shouldn't worry... a 5.9id should be overkill anyways

    Have an amp, need to choose a suitable sub.

    I pre-mark (spacing/port width... etc) and pre-drill all parts where needed... then i'd assemble the side panel/assembled portwall 1st. I personally use #6 coarse thread drywall screws 1 5/8" long for single .75" materials. Just take your time and use plenty of woodglue. Bar clamps can come in handy when assembling.

    What’s the new Forum Boner?

    Please protect your peanut when diving into the deep end gramps. That kiddie pool can hurt.

    Pics? Try to flare the port entry and exit... it's probably overkill but I'd do it.

    The same as previously... 2 spiders. Same enclosure to start... we'll see. I'm gonna test, test... no predictions at this point.

    I'm going to try this 1st... its my 1st recone btw. Believe me... I was close to doing just that.

    The same but in d1... it was 1 extra spider, I'm adding a larger Northstar as well... SMS Agm 220. I got a set of those Gp terminals so why not. I'll play with airspace once I start testing too.... might stay the same, might not. Everything is ordered... now the wait then finding motivation.

    I thought I'd clamp 2k-2.25k as well, and that would get to my goal but I'm fighting rise (almost 3ohm) and voltage drops to resting or just under with a tone being used. Every burp dropped voltage from 14.4v or so to resting 12.6v or just under.... so yes... I'll need more reserve for sure. I'd redo it but it's getting hot soon and I figure for now wiring lower along with some added reserve ought to get me there. My goal is a decent daily with a 150+ on burps. Maybe over the winter I'll get serious about numbers but like I said its getting hot and that's not something a stroke survivor should endure too much if possible, the event left me with a sunburned scalp and that's fun enough... that I can endure. Another stroke?.. I'd probably build a smallish box using a 10" Aero, tuned just a touch higher and aim the port different if I wanted to chase #'s but for now I'm going to see where I can get to using what I currently have. So its recone time and then I'll focus on electrical as needed. Damn... its getting warm

    Bad attempt at humor apparently by me... hard to ship to=damaged packaging. I'm out

    Where do you live... on top of K2 man?

    Any Spl predictions?

    Sounds like a plan... I think I'll probably go that route. With all the changes I've made recently it's beginning to be a chore building and redoing for me. Jeez... I gave 4 enclosures away free yesterday (6th, 4th and 2 ported) along with some extra gear at the event today just to reduce clutter around here.

    I have a 250A Ces Duracell H6 starting Agm And a little Northstar Sms80 agm in back. I've got lots of plans but we'll see how it comes together eventually. Now that I'm semi-recovered from my stroke I'm able to get out in the heat a bit more. And who knows?.. I just might try to tackle the recone mostly myself (with a little help of course... motor skills shot). Been decent weather here lately for the last month. That'll change tho... ain't nothing like those 110-115 degree days right before and during the local monsoons... gotta love phx Honestly I remember those hot, humid summer days in the NC Piedmont as being worse... the bugs sure loved it too iirc
