Enclosure question - bracing/polyfill
cloud77 posted a topic in General AudioI'm currently in the process of reconing a 2004 RE XXX v3 15" woofer and haven't made the enclosure yet. I'm planning on building a 3.43 cu. ft sealed enclosure to house this monster, as my goal is more on the ""SQL"" side. The sub's displacement is .21 I've come to a design and have my cut sheets marked and ready to go, but I wanted to see if anyone could provide some input on if I should brace this box with a horizontal or vertical support? Does the enclosure absorb and vibrate this much with that back pressure to where I should brace the box? If so, what materials should I go about using? a piece of wood is fine? The box will have a double baffel, and be receiving about 1400-1600 wrms. I never actually found enclosure recommendations for this driver, but I am open to suggestions. I've only researched successful enclosure designs done by people in the past. Another question is polyfill..Should I use a lb or so to fool the sub into thinking its in a bigger enclosure? Please educate me. Keep in mind another reason Here's a link that helped me decide on an enclosure design: http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/member-reviews-product-comparisons/109015-2005-re-audio-xxx-15-review.html Keep in mind, I would go ported if I could, but I dont have enough space in my trunk. I have max like 3.8 cubic ft for a ported.
Re XXX v3 recone
cloud77 posted a topic in General FiHey guys, First of all Happy new year to everyone @ Fi Car Audio. It was a great year with your products and hope it was a great year in sales for you. Down to business, I have aquired an RE XXX v3 motor from a craigslist sale. (paid 150 for it) Its spiders were off of the landing and luckily no one who had the sub knew that was the problem, Hopefully I can glue them down and the coil didn't rub too much. I see you guys have a recone option for RE 3x, guessing thats the xxx you just cant use the name for copyright purposes. It says that the recones are good for 2005 models and up, but I have a XXX motor that uses XBL^2 technology (I think its 2006 model). Im guessing that recone is a little different perhaps more pricey, but I was wondering if you can make one for me since I have not yet gone through psi for any recones. I love your craftsmanship and quality in the products you use in your drop in recones and was just wondering if I can get it through you guys. I was j/w because I thought the xbl2 technology recone would be considerably different than the newer coil designs. Thanks guys If anyone wants to chime in and tell me a little about these motors and the way they sound please do! this is my first time dealing with this kind of motor. this technology originated through adire audio correct?
