Anybody who builds a sub uses a high pass filter, that's so basic its stupid. Who attempts to run a sub driver full range?

 

Oh your an expert......I forgot.

 

 

 

 

You are probably thinking about a low pass filter.

 

This will need both a high pass and low pass filter.

 

With that attitude good luck getting help here, sounds like you really need it too.

No.....they use a LOW pass filter most every time; not a HIGH pass filter.  Using a high pass filter limits the low frequency is allowed to a driver whereas using a low pass filter limits the amount of highs a driver sees.

Yes you are correct, I had corrected my post if you look back. Actually some subs do employ both an adjustable high pass and low pass filter like Rythmik subs.  Subsonic filter = high pass

 

Brian Ding is the originator of Rythmik, an electrical engineer. He designs his own plate amps. Rythmiks are noted for his feedback servo technology.

They are based out of Austin TX.

Oh please enlighten me.

Many times the manufacturer will post a frequency response of the raw driver and you can see how it performs.  TS parameters (which they DID supply) shuld be all you need however when you design your box.  Winisd will quickly tell you what you've got.

I'm not quite sure what I or anyone else has done to deserve attitude.  I'll apologize and bow out of this conversation.  Good luck with your build and post pictures for others to enjoy.

Seems to be a decent driver for $60.00.  It just needs to be used in the right application.

You're right. You probably cant get a better 18" at that price.....

My apology to you and Jason, I was sort of being an arrogant di**head for sure. When I went back and later re-read this thread, it was apparent to me.

Thank you, I appreciate it.  Please post pictures of your build.  Those of us that currently don't have projects going will build vicariously through your photos.
