Default Rhythmic in a car

Has anybody on here had a chance to look at the nuts and bolts of the rythmic servo subwoofers? I am wondering if it would be possible to modify one of the 12'' units to work in a car with a car sub amp. Do you think this would be possible?

But then the motion feedback circuit isn't being used.

There is no "motion feedbadk" it is electronically monitored and corrected. I would definitly want to use the motion feedback of the units, otherwise there would be no point to using a rhythmic sub in the first place. I just want to be able to use a car amp (12v supply not AC outlet power supply...) instead of the amp that comes intergrated with the servo control unit.

.. by an additional coil in their drivers that is used for feedback. Yes there is. The feedback system is part of the amplifier. You'll need to contact the company. Their servo feedback boards mate with they're amps.

gotcha. yeah i understand how it works. There are just some servo systems that physically track (via laser etc) the actual physical location of the cone.
I dont know why they have not released anything like that. It would be HUGE in the car audio market.

Yeah, it would. I made a displacement limiter myself using a doppler radar antenna, and see the benefits for car applications, too.
Reading driver displacement with radar!

Something like this would help out - then you can use one of their amps, with the circuit.

600W DC 12V to AC 230V Power Invertor : In-Car Power Invertors : Maplin
