Coil Former Knocking off dust cap 3x

Recommended Posts

I recently reconed my BTL UFO 12" with high xmax option.

I used the spacers provided to space the basket .250" above the bump in the motor.

I first knocked the dust cap off in a huge box I had made for my zcon. 3.1 cu ft. tuned to 32. Glued it back up and I did it again.

I built a new box because I thought big box, over powering, exc. could have been the cause. Plus it didn't sound that great (anticipated)

I have a box made.. 2.4 cu ft. tuned to 32. Knocked the dust cap off again today.

I am using household goop to glue the dust cap. Should I go with CA?

Possibility that the recone was not made to be spaced from the motor?

I checked the pole vent when I bought the motor and it is not shifted.  But considering all solutions.

had the same thing happen with a 12 inch btl n3. ended up using amazing goop on it and it stayed on. after that though it made a horrible rattling noise on low notes. lol was being stupid and put it in a 4th order box thinkin it might hide the rattle. it made it echo way louder lol

goop is what I'm using. I really want to refrain from using CA on the DC

How hot are you getting it?

normal temperatures. I keep on checking it, and its warm to touch, but not flaming. Seems like it always comes off after a certain amount of rocking though..

I just got my alt in, so I don't know if I'm getting greedy with the power since I don't really have to monitor voltage anymore as my limits to the volume button.

Cheap enough to try, but I am a believer of Amazing E-6000 and you can pick it up at "Most" walmarts.

I used amazing goop but it was the kind for arts n crafts. I believe it said craft on it.. found it at walmart over by the arts n crafts section. tried regular amazing goop from lowes and it flew off.

*edit

      Slow build, but wanted to get a build log going.

      Hello all, I have been away from the forums for some time since graduating college and started working again. Now that I have some money to finally move away from these seemingly low powered setups (6 systems since 2012), I am looking for help with my wall build. I am going to be building the base to the wall in my 2016 Ford Focus sedan in a week or two, and there is a lot of room to work with (over 30 cubes). I will be running 2 18" ZCONs on (undecided) either a 5.5k or 6.5k amp with supporting electrical (batt bank, lots of OFC wire, and HO alt). This is my daily, and I just want a ground pounder with no care to what numbers it'll put up in the lanes. I would like to demo a lot. I'm thinking 8 cubes per sub (16 cubes net) tuned to 32 Hz is a good place to start (recommended by SSA). I'm thinking either a center slot port, or a top port.
      ** I listen to ALL kinds of music, Decaf/DJSNT, rap, hip hop, metal, rock, 80s/90s pop, jazz, country, movie scores, blues, dubstep/electronic, classic rock, oldies, etc, etc..**
      Now... my questions are: How much port area do y'all recommend? Is 8 cubes of net volume per sub a good amount? Should I be alright running an underrated 5500 watt amp, or go with the 6500? What port orientation shall I go with? 
      If I think of more questions, I will be sure to post them. 
      P.S. Sorry if I am asking some questions that are common knowledge among these builds, but this is my first "loud" and "high powered" setup. My two loudest systems thus far have been a single Obsidian Audio 15 on about 900 watts, and 2 Sundown Ev3-12's on 1300 watts.
      Thank you for your time and patients everyone! Cheers.

      I recently purchased a SSA Evil 18in sub, and a 3k rms amp. my first ever real set up so im pretty new to car audio. but i have a question and in need of advice. when i turn up the volume it almost sounds like the subwoofer is bottoming out or making a clicking noise. is this normal or do i need to lower the power on it. or  is there more to it than just that?
