Long story short I built a sub enclosure (sealed) for a tempest x2 stuff happened I no longer own a tempest x2 or the amp and the tempest is not available any more. so now I have A very nicely built sub enclosure 25mm thick hmr mdf (more dense then mdf) of 240 liters and no subwoofer.
I could not find many subs that were recommended for around 240 liters Closest I could find was sound splinter rls-15 recommended for around 10 cubic foot or 283 liters now with my super in depth understanding of how not to model a subwoofer and winisd throwing a spasm when try to perform a simple routine task, I came up with a high qtc of 1.1 something and a bit of peak in response, now if I don't sound like an idiot already a high qtc makes for a boomy system, high spl but not as good deep bass extension and starts to sound dry, and a peak in response isn't that what contributes to this boomy sound?
The enclosure is in my room 4.0mx4.0mx2.7m Not super huge I'm really after %100 music now your probably asking why I built such a big enclosure for the tempest if I am not after ht well I changed my mind halfway through to late!
%95 of the time I listen to metal lot's of double kick that's really what started this all so maybe a more boomy subwoofer is suited to this application, price does not bother me by the way it's going to cost nearly more then the driver to get the rls here, sucks to live in Australia.
Driver availability is mostly why I got the tempest from audio market place in Australia getting any non mainstream driver is like ripping teeth.
So if any of you hardcore subwoofer people know of a driver suited to my situation please post info I always have the other option tear the top off the box and shut it but I really don't want to.
By the way if I just sounded like the biggest dumbest brain fart idiot who thinks he knows audio you ever witnessed please tell me and I will stop.
