This may be considered a nube problem, even though it is not my first build.
My new dual opposed Tempest 15 sealed sono-style sub has a resonant buzz at a consistent frequency when I sweep it. I can get up close to the drivers and both have a buzz which seems to come from the rims.
I used the Parts-Express Speaker Gasketing Tape 1/8" x 1/2" x 50 ft. Roll
Unlike how I would tighten the bolts on an engine valve cover gasket (ONLY snug plus some), I tightened the 8 nuts/driver with a nut driver, medium tight.
Did I over compress the gasket?
Any reports that the P-E sealing tape creates resonant buzzes?
I know, I know, thin and lame...
I'm just looking for any other possibility than that I have to break two siliconed seals and redo the gasketing.
Some feedback from voices with experience would be appreciated, before I commit to surgery on my new baby!
FWIW: the finish on the protube will be black burlap wrapped around the black cylinder area and polyurethaned.
