Default Our Newest 2X18 Subs

These are really solid from 40 - 200. They are made to go in pairs, so they should, with processing, and sitting like a single unit get pretty close to 30. Tops are finished too. Each set takes AT LEAST 4000 watts @ 4 ohm to run, and should get 6000. Before they get processed, just the horn brings there output to over 110 db, with the drivers we are using. Pretty excited to get the alpha builds done. 3 versions of the tops coming soon.

Thanks - Although I have not taken actual data yet (outside) it models crossing 30hz at above unity for the driver, which is tuned at 32 hz. Long story short, it is already at 100db at 30hz, and well over 110 at 40hz.... For 1 driver in half of the cabinet :-). It is designed to be combined in pairs or quads in the vertical position. That is why there is no top and bottom bracing in the verticals. I will CNC a large piece of aluminum that will hold the boxes together, and double as a 3-way top mounting extender on the high side, so we can run 4 tops on this stack without them falling off. Or - Vibrating off.

I thought the turbo subs were more along the lines of the diy USB? I looked them up just now, and I would say that the volume of air moving would go from USB - Turbo - to our new beast :-)

That's why they are designed to be be used in pairs - series/parallel - 4 Ohm - 6000W

And a bit of electricity...
