Default Apex Jr. Super 8 Dipole

Has anyone built a dipole sub using the Apex Jr. Super 8s?

The price is right and the driver specs look pretty good for a dipole alignment. I'm thinking of building a 'W' dipole sub using these. I wouldn't expect 'killer' bass but from what I can find about the Super 8 it seems like they might sound pretty good.

Anyone built an 8" dipole sub or have an opinion?

Thanks -
Bruce

i agree the specs are pretty good for the dipole alignment. if you're interested I have two of these Apex Super 8's for sale for $60 USD (you pay shipping). Let me know what you think.

This is a very intriging woofer... i have 6 on the way (probably 3 TLs). Woody claims they are not bad out to 10k (pretty awedome for a sub) which really helps when it comes to doing XO.

Default Super 8's

any chance you got the super 8's yet? I am very intrigued by these....Xmax doesn't seem very high though for such a beefy looking surround. Greg

Of the 6 on their way or here 4 will be mated with Jordan + AC G2si and the other pr with Fostex FE108eSigma

The Q is about right for a TL, after my 1st pass (a while ago) thru Martin's tables the Vas might be a bit small.

Still a TL of some sort is what i'm aiming at.

_henry_,

I have a pair of Supravox 215 Signature Bicones on the way I'm planning on putting in an OB. I'm looking for a good pair of 8" - 10" woofers for a dipole sub.

My listening room isn't real big 12' x 15' so I don't need really big woofers. I would also be using this with the Jordans too.

the fs is pretty high for a sub, but then again dave, u're going for TLs that probably can make them go lower, aren't u?

for $70 a pair is very helping overall budget for a good system, or semi dave's frugal-tm system

little bit off topic, u're using g2si with jordans? i thought u said they don't match them ? and i remember in my thread that u're suggesting horn tweeter will do the job better? or am i mistaken?

apbea,
how about those supravox against jordans? any comments?

Haven't received the Supravox yet, hopefully next week. And yes indeed, as soon as I get the supravox setup I'll compare them side-by-side to the jordans and report back!!
