I came across these because I made an error in the design of my 1st build, a ported 110 liter box for a 10" Kicker CompVR 2005 edition that was completed last week. Today I decided to visit a few local audio store and behold one had these PG series. Trust me, I was exited after visiting the 1st couple shops that deal in Boss & Memphis Audio, yuck! After plugging in the numbers, the R3 10" will correct my error in box planning and give me an opportunity to try these out. I will also be able to use my amp above 125 watts now. The R3's and Ti2's are stating 30 & 40mm excursion respectively. They are coming out with a Ti2 15" next year and would not release the T/S parameters for it until April. Here are the spec sheets if anyone is interested:

That's peak to peak. Divide that number in half.

That is disappointing. I really thought I had something going. Maybe my next build will be a lot sooner than I thought since my amp is still held back.

Well there's nothing wrong with buying subs with 15 and 20mm of xmax. I bought 4, 15's with 13mm xmax. You just have to use them within their limitations and design a total system, sub driver, box, amp, room. In the end, your sub system can still be good.

Agreed, nothing wrong with it at all my bedroom "subs" are a pair of Vifa m26wr-09s. I think the only have 7.5mm Xmax and they're more than adequate.

I went ahead and bought a R310d4 Driver to drop in the box that I have already made. Pending paint, the box will be complete. I have a question about putting in a high pass filter circuit for it. I do not know how to build one, but it looks like if I throw in a 2nd order butterworth HPF at 22Hz, I will be good. My question is it really needed and where would I begin to calculate the components for it? The 109.1 liter box is tuned to 24.55Hz with a 3"x10" port 30"s long. The actual box dimension are 20"x20"x25". thanks... here are the attached WinISD images
Edit: this is with 300w to the driver.

Finally test fitted this sub in the box and the fit is very good. A little more sanding then off to finishing. Still up in the air to laminate it or apply a two stage (base/clear) automotive paint for a glossy black finish. Both are going to cost the same in materials.

Here I am a year later and still not finished! Would you recommend putting a grille over this, I am thinking just the woofer hole, or go with pulling the sub and finish painting where the wood is still showing? The cabinet was laminated by a friend of mine.
