i retested with everything the same except that i tried out a max volume of 65 on the receiver and these are the results from that. what gives with the 40hz drop?

80hz - 102db
60hz- 106db
40hz- 84db
20hz- 101db (max volume attained was 61, 62 created distortion)

267.5 L

tuned to 15.35 Hz

6" round port x 29.17" long

is what i'm showing. but there really isn't much difference is there. i'm really tempted to use this subwoofer instead of going the SVS route. Cost would be similar to the 10" nsd with hopefully the performance of the 12" nsd or greater. Not sure which amp to go with though I know I wouldn't want to be spending more than 300$ on it. Another problem is Sonotube. The local UBC doesn't carry anything bigger than 16" and while hes got good prices on it, I don't know if he can get the bigger stuff nor whether he can order just one if thats all I want.

OUCH the driver did reach some kind of limit! With sealed and no limiters and proper filters it is unfortunate but drivers can take a beating. Plus EQ boost often pushes the cone travel beyond its design limit...

I was wondering how a damaged looked,this will make me go mellow ....on my drivers.

yeah, the old driver took some abuse. i've managed to keep my current one in working order so far but would still like some info on getting the most output from it whilst still protecting the driver.
