New Subject onto Buttkickers now..
I am currently interested in doing what was in the BEQ thread but before I start on that I was wondering a couple things..
The sub consists of the following::
1. Mach 5 IXL 18.4 Subwoofer in a 12cu. ft. box ported.
2. Behringer iNuke 3000 DSP Amplifier..
here are the T/S Specs for the subwoofer:
Fs = 17.7 Hz
Re = 3.4 ohms[dc]
Le = 6.09 mH
Qt = 0.37
Qes = 0.39
Qms = 5.59
Mms = 434.34 grams
Rms = 8.69 kg/s
Cms = 0.184 mm/N
Vas = 274.1 liters
Sd= 1029.22 cm^2
Bl = 20.51 Tm
Lp(2.83V/1m) = 91.60 dB
xMax is 22mm
When I built this thing I had a thread at another forum and still had unanswered questions. I am going to see if I can find WinISD again and input the specs and see what I come up with..
I am currently trying to find out what I could push Wattage wise the the sub without damaging it.. I know the subwoofer was rated at 800W RMS.. I remember in the old thread some guys stated with the box I was building I could put in 1000W into it??
Now I never did that and kept the Watts to 800 most times.. I think for a while I did not have the Peak limiter set and ran it at max wattage which was 880w..
my biggest question is how low am I going with this sub and how would I go about finding out how low and loud does the subwoofer play at currently..
I figure I am going to have to get reaquantied with REW and get a new U-Mik if that is the case then I will but I am just trying to determine how low I can go and if something is missing.. I keep reading the posts in the DIY sub section about some feeling the lower Hz which I really don't or maybe I just don't know I feel it lol!!
I did have 2 of these IXL's but since sold the 2nd one and just kept one, I really regret doing that now..
So how can I find out how low can I go is what is driving me mad.. I am thinking since I have and use the iNuke DSP I am missing out on some ULF?? I do have the shelf set to go below 20hz and is at -6 there was a sticky on it here and the other forum how to do it. But I am unsure if it really works as it is supposed too..
I need to find a way to test the Hz range below 20 ?? I just downloaded WinISD and it has a tone generator. If I use that with a laptop connected to my AVR will that work ok?
