These speakers are only going to be exposed to humidity heat and cold. You guys are way over thinking this. Untreated cones won't like the humidity

Nice work!



Wow that site is awesome. I've always wanted RF7's, I'm half tempted to try my own xover design with the drivers. What is the right horn for the RF7?

That center doesnt look like it matches at all, you definitely want the XLS center. No clue on those speakers, there were some measurements of the old model CLS 215 that looked pretty good though

Your amp should put out about 650 watts rms and can have a 20hz HPF set. Both subs shown have those settings. Here's a 390HO in a 4.5 ft3 20hz box (orange) vs a 460HO in 4.75 ft3 sealed (blue)

Power Acoustik Mofo152X

This is a woofer I've had for the past few years. Usually priced well on Amazon ($140 right now) with free shipping this is IMO a better buy then the DVC385-88.

That depends on your power level, ability to set a high pass filter, and desired output/extension. In 6 ft3 sealed you would probably be safe with 300 watts and no filter, xmax would only be exceeded...
