I've had this sub pre-ordered for 3 months, and it just came in today. The only other subs I've had were a Logitech Z-5500 (lolz) and a TC Sounds Epic 12". This thing is a beast in comparison! BTW- the databass review of this driver mentions that the plain dustcap is some kind of flimsy plastic or something. Mine has the plain dustcap, but it's the same material that the rest of the cone is made out of.
I used a 4cu ft flat pack from DIYSoundGroup. It's a perfect flush fit if you remove the rubber gasket. If the hole were a mm smaller it wouldn't work out.
I already had a neighbor pounding on the wall when at 2-3 clicks on the volume knob with the Epic 12". I can't wait to see what they think of a 1200 watt 18". I am actively trying to find a house with basement that I can move in to. I really
need the privacy/freedom to crank it up.
My next project will be to build FL/C/FR speakers (I want to build Alpha-12 Zephyr's, and to use my current FL/FR as RL/RR. Then, I'll need a second UXL-18 for the second channel of my CV5000.
18" next to a "puny" 12" woofer.
UXL-18 vs Definimax 4012ho.
I'll be able to get it loaded in to the enclosure later tonight.
