Default Update on Audiobahn 34 Inch Subwoofer Install

Finally, I got it installed. I am updating my project on this site and the MobileDIY forum. If you haven't seen my previous posts, I have been working on a project for a long time. I have been wanting to see what a 34-inch / 211-LB Audiobahn Subwoofer would do in a tiny car. Will be ready to test soon. Enjoy the pics...

Reminds me of the time I took a friend's Pantera out for a spin without the cowl in place.

The big, howling 351 Cleveland was just behind the seat, with pulleys and belts churning away, just waiting for a bad shift to toss my right elbow into it's teeth.

That 34" has the same look on it's face. Are you feeling lucky, tomtomjr?

I hope there were no injuries while wrestling the beast into the car.

Poor little Honda...

It might do best with all the doors open (i.e. mobile open-baffle); from what I remember this monstrosity has a fairly high Qts.

EDIT: Yep, here's the manual. Qts = 0.968. It does best in a 22 cubic foot sealed enclosure.

So, just open the hatch.

I don't think tomtom's too worried about that. The high Q may be just what he needs to disassemble that Honda.

Dual 2 Ohm coils, what a workout for 2 Punch 30s.

My back hurts really bad. Nobody lost a finger or anything. It was by far the hardest to install speaker ever. Several thousand speakers over the years, and this was by far the hardest. All 3 of us were completely worn out. I was worried about the sub falling into the hole and taking a finger or two off. Or the sub breaking out the back side and knocking someones head into the back floor. Would suck either way. But we are all ok. Was a real workout.

I remember the Fane 24's and they were neat. Wayne Harris had some back in the early car audio days. Drew Luther had some also. I never played much with them. There was a 21 I got to play with for a little while. I think the brand was called American Pro. Big sub. But nothing compared to this one. I have a pair of the Clarion 32 inch subs and they work great. If this one doesn't work out, I know for sure I can get a Clarion 32-inch to work. And make it sound good. Just can't put more than about 300WRMS on them. (1000 peak) ...

I hooked it up for a few minutes tonight on a Harrison Labs 400W amp. Sounded pretty good. Way better than what I was expecting. I just couldn't wait any longer to at least test it. This is not how I am leaving it though. I have the facing done though, and that is the hardest part. I can try several different types of ports and some other types of enclosure mods now. Will keep it updated... Here is a pic with one seat in. I need to recover the seats and redo the carpet too. Will be one of the last parts of the install...
