rl-i 8 review/still pr0n

Recommended Posts

Mike, do you have a best volume for sealed?

teh recommended was .17ft^3...but after testing, i think .25ft^3 would probably be better..i'm going ot try to build the ported and larger sealed boxes this weekend..

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :slayer:

Nice Kent! Yea the 0.17 cu ft is the smallest recommended enclosure size I'd give, but it will make for a very nice non-peaky flat frequency response until it starts rolling off. Generally, anywhere between 0.17 - 0.5 cu ft sealed on these should be great.

tom, there ya go, from .17ft^3 to .5ft^3....in .17ft^3 it was really punchy and loud..but not as low as it could get...

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :slayer:

Magenta seems to have nice transitions while being loud

Hey 80.. we got about 0.019m^2 cone area and 17.8mm Xmax - if you need quick spec reference, visit this link (page in progress).

Edit: The above link is no longer active, but the new pages for the RL-i Series are now available online in the regular products section of the website :)

the charts add depth to the product, providing the viewer much more info right off the bat

Thanks for the compliments guys! heart.gif

The way the page has been setup it goes:

Main Index --> Series Index --> Series/Driver Info

I figured that since I'm catering to DIY'ers, more information the better.. so I added a new level:

Main Index --> Series Index --> Series Info/Driver Index --> Driver Info

Up here in the Bay area so I can't upload the Series Info/Driver Index page 'til I get back, but it looks very similar to the current Series/Driver Info pages, except with a link to the fleshed out Driver Info page instead of just pop-up links for the t/s & enclosure rec's as it is now. Hopefully this will cut down on my email load since more information will be readily available on site! ;)

Since I'm tired of having a huge 2^3 Net box for a single 12 I may try two 8's and these little monsters fit the requirement I believe. I think I'll try sealed, and if someone would like to sell me, or just be nice and create some box plans for two 8's let me know. I have an idea of how I want the box to look, I just need someone to do the calculations and create the box plans :P .

But first, I will need to save up $270. :wacko:

buying new computer parts and wanting Car audio stuff = :poop:
