dual 8w7's enclosure

Recommended Posts

I got this box made by Mike, AmiCreations.

 

The enclosure is 2cf, 30x14x15, 2cft tuned to 34hz, 25 sq inches of port, birch, double baffled, countersunk, 45 corners, rounded ports, and resin coated.

 

This is the short build log, if you care to see the complete pic by pic build:

thank yous!

 

Mike, AmiCreations (enclosure) was a great guy to work with, first class all the way! He let me make change after change, I know I was a PITA, THANKS AGAIN BRO!

 

OldOneEye, (amps) thanks again for working with me on the amps when I didnt have all the cash!

 

Toxic Tuan, (mids/hi's) we had a issue, you solved it quickly could not have asked for anything more, the comps sound great.

 

JH8909 (deadening), gave a SIC $$ on like 30ft enough to double up on my doors!

 

These are great guys to deal with DO NOT hesitate dealing with these dudes. Quick EZ PZ transactions!

 

Now back to breaking in these subs, there tight like virgins!

Soon, my installer said take it EZ for a couple weeks and killed my gains (there sitting @11 oclock/40%). He said that PPI d3000/1 (1200 watts@ 1.5ohms) could blow up those 8's without blinking.

 

I guess he KNEW what I was gonna do! Its only been like 4 days since the install.... Ill see him in a couple weeks for a retune and gain adjustment(60/75% gains if im lucky) for MAX output "according to him"

 

At first I thought BS, but I rather listen and be safe then SORRY... lord knows I dont wanna blow anything up

The good plywood is stronger and lighter...cheap stuff from Home Depot, not so much.

Also, I'm still curious why he needed to do 3 layers on the baffle...no need for that IMO.

Its only doubled baffeled, the 3rd layer is purely cosmetic for a flusher look. Maybe you wanna look a wee bit closer...

I knew the 3rd was flush, but it's still 3 layers all the way and 2 where the subs mount...just not necessary, they're 8" subs not monster 15's.

The triple baffle is overkill, but looks nice regardless...

Its not necessary to you, but then again its not your box!

 

Your opinion is your opinion, we all have one, even if we only talking about 1/2 sheet of wood! (maybe)

 

If I wanted a big stupid 15, I could have had that as well. But I guess calling 15's stupid is my opinion..

 

guess you can find fault in anything if you look hard enough...

 

Thanks for the insightful input bro.

Getting a little defensive? I'm stating that the double baffle with a third to flush mount is not needed for a pair of 8W7's, especially when it's a relatively long and skinny baffle...there's no denying that, it's just not necessary. Baffle stability would no be an issue with a single mounting baffle and a flush baffle. The only way it would be necessary is if you were worried about the subs stripping screws out of a single sheet of plywood, which in this case, would not be an issue. I'm more worried about if the builder told you that it WAS necessary to have 3 layers in order to charge you more for the build.

 

Can you tell me why it IS necessary? What exactly are you benefiting from having three layers as opposed to two? Why did the builder recommend it(if he did)?

Not defensive at all, just wondering why you care so much?

 

No, Mike @ AmiCreations did exactly what I asked him to do! And Im wise enough not to let anyone talk me into anythng to jack the $$$, its a pure buyers market on any service @ the moment. Futhermore, why are you so concerned at what I paid?

 

Frankly he undercharged me for this piece, considering he has a price list for size and other upgrades that he did/does. Before he started this build I started a thread "whats this worth" and all the feedback was $300+ for his design and build, lets just say I paid nowhere near that!

 

No, I did not want a single baffel, I wanted double, and countersunk just like I got. I should have it single b/c you said so?

 

Dayum dude I guess a single .75' thick peice of Birch bothers you that much, maybe I should trash the whole enclosure.. Must be a slow day on caraudio.com...

 

Are you jealous of Mikes work?

 

BTW, to answer your question its necessary b/c thats what I wanted, hows that!
