Alpine SWR-1042D (and build thread)
First post here, but I've been lurking these past few weeks looking at DIY speaker projects, and think I'm ready for my first project.
I have a sub that used to be in my Jeep that is now just sitting around doing nothing. Alpine SWR-1042D
I'd like to build an enclosure for it and get it amped up, but I need a little help from you guys.
Its going to be in a basement room that's about 12' x 12' with 6.5' ceilings. I know that the sub is probably too small to fill it, but I have the sub and want to put it to use. Even if I feel need to add a sub later. I'd like an opinion on what you think of the driver itself though. Is it even worth it? It looks well made.
I cant post the link but the PDF says that the power range is 200-500W RMS. This sub has two 4ohm coils. I'm not sure if that range is for each coil, or total. Basically Im trying to size up an amp, and I'm not sure how much power it can handle. Any help here is appreciated.
I plan to build a ported enclosure, unless you see a reason to go sealed.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
