OMG! You're going to blow that 454 up in 3 minutes. Yeah, 50,000 miles later I'm still rolling my eyes. The first time I heard the song of the 6-71 in madmax...it wasn't not going to happen. Sometimes you just have to zero out all the negative nellies and self proclaimed experts.
For the s3600 cabinets I need to find out what works out of the 5-6 new 18s I have here now(including the neo and ipal). How well do they lend themselves to the cause? I also need to find a bottom-end for the new compression design(on top of the cabinet) from B&C. Single 15? Single 18" Dual push pull? How linear are the motors? so much so there's not going to be any audible benefit to p-p? So it's just playing around with distortion components right now and finding something for <500hz. Then build, measure, and listen. Maybe nothing comes of the whole idea. That's really not the point to be honest though. Not to me anyway. The whole point is just trying out stuff and learning/finding out what really happens.
Whatever works (if anything does) in the s3600 will work the same in the current s3611 and s1811 of course. Of course the key word there is "works" and how I define that.
All of this is really just play time for me. State of the art measurement rigs, some of the best components money can buy, mix in a little experience and imagination, shake, stir...
Do the new drivers fit in the 360# series cabs?
