  1. Yes, change the title over to reflect what they are then take some pictures and they will sell.
  2. Had many Alpine head units back in the day, no Alpine speakers though. Never heard a Kicker sub i liked. Have not heard of Memphis.
  3. Used dozens of these with great success. Dayton 12" Box suited for them. If you need an amplifier i suggest US Acoustics, have had great luck with them in the past. Options are endless, just a recommendation based on my experience.
  4. My first car audio sub was one of dad's Altec woofers in the rear deck of my 73 Delta 88, the sun turned the cone to dust in under a year.
  5. They are woofers, a subwoofer is designed for 100 Hz and below for the most part. Sell them quick for $100 or so each and you could afford one hell of a car audio sub and amp with a little DIY.
  6. You can stuff one in a .5 Cu Ft sealed cabinet and see how it goes but a proper subwoofer will do a much better job. If you have been doing car audio for 20 years you should know what T/S parameters are as you need them for any cabinet design including car audio. Good luck.
  7. T/S parameters is what you need to design a proper box for the drivers, just throwing them into any box is a waste of your time and money. I suggest you sell the drivers or find somebody to perform measurements if you cannot locate the T/S parameters.
  8. If you know the T/S parameters of the driver(s) we could help. Klipsch will not disclose such information. Without this its only a guess.
  9. Dad had a Technics turntable (forgot the model) it lasted 15 years or so and could no longer maintain a constant speed, i removed the Shure cartridge and threw it away figuring it was not worth repairing. As for Sony i still have a few ES series CD players, never had any Sanyo products besides a room fan.
  10. Had a neighbor who worked for Panasonic named Ron who was one of the designers for Technics, really into music and sound systems much like many on the forum here. Ron was always telling me never to buy anything audio related to Panasonic as the management was always short changing the designs aimed at the company's bottom line rather than getting the best sound out and longevity of the designs. This was 30 + years ago, things have probably changed since then for better or worse.
  11. Terrible news Bruce, so sorry. Travel safely.
  12. Many of my plans are older from when i was one of the BFM authorized builders witch plans have probably been updated to include MDF. I just avoid it personally as the only advantage is that its a bit smoother surface for veneering.
  13. MDF is not recommended. Can't stand the stuff myself either.
  14. Or big bag of weed for a pillow, one of the best sound upgrades available.
  15. The only advantage to using Baltic Birch is its less prone to damage than softer materials such as moving them around often for pro sound use. I suggest on the next build you consider using Auraco plywood and building the cabinet as wide as possible to get as much as you can out of the designs. Your build looks nice by the way and I'm sure after building this first one you realize the design is so well thought out you really don't need to spend as much on material or drivers to get dam good performance out of them.
  16. Ported subs will have a steeper roll off than sealed models. Ported horns included.
  17. Sealed subs work better in small rooms because they take advantage of cabin gain to fill in the lower octave. Cinema's or movie theaters are too large to take advantage of any cabin gain thus making them a poor choice.
  18. Play a 30 Hz test tone through the mains and it will give you your answer.
  19. Any Air leak will impede woofer performance.
  20. Make sure there is nothing blocking the gasket from sealing like sawdust from one of the screw holes ETC... For the gasket to work you need smooth surfaces on both sides, that or something is warped or damaged on the mating surfaces. You may be able to get by using a thicker gasket to compensate for that.
  21. There should be no air leaks. Is the gasket compromised ?
  22. 3/4" Plywood is never actually 3/4" thick, its much closer to 18 mm. Stay away from the Chinese stuff.
  23. Any soft rubber feet will do, if the floor is uneven use 3 in a triangular pattern to assure a wobble free footing.
