We went with 4 jb1500n's since if something goes wrong there cheap enough to replace later on.

Hi,

I finished building them, and they sound great, but I've had absolutely no time at all to do any measurement. And I don't have the regular old SS15 design to compare them to. Gonna be a while before I get around to measuring.

I'm interested in how the JB1500N fares, it looks appealing on paper! For the price, anyway... and with the right ply it'd be a cheap build all up.

Where in NSW are you located?

Just built 4 with form ply and jb1500n drivers. $400 for 5 sheets of 1.8mm ply and $600ish for drivers. These perform very very well for the money. Running all four off a crown xti 4002. all up inc amp, fittings/leads it was about 2.5k

$1500aus for miscellaneous fittings. That seems disproportionate.
What have you fitted?

It includes the amplifier @ $1100. The rest of the fittings are dual speakon plugs, internal wire, grills, grill covers, speakon leads, handles, paint screws, glue and probably more that I can't remember.

They are pretty damn loud although not as low as I would like. They have been running at near clipping with a limiter of -3db and a long *** release time on that crown amp for at least 16hrs straight with no issue. They sound very clean as long as you don't cross them over too high (I set to 150hz).

I realised I could nearly run 6 subs off one of these amps... maybe later on haha
