Hi,

Forget subwoofers, they simply wont work.
10" PA types high passed are your best bet.

Why you say subwoofers wont work?

This ia for home hifi. At the moment I have two 3way monitors and for listening to reggae and dub it asks for more bass.
I shall use an active crossover with it.

High pass ate my best option? Can u explaim a litle bit? I am a begginer on this

It doesn’t matter if they are for home hi-fi or PA…..You have already been told on both the threads you started on the speakerplans forum (a forum that has a scoop section!!) that 10” scoops will not give you sub because the horn is to short, as its the horn length dictates the low frequency response…….


….. I guess you simply didn’t like what the guys on their told you so you have moved here!!

I think what everyone is saying these cabinets aren't considered subwoofers because no matter what driver you pu in them they are not going to produce much of any output in sub bass frequencies. Can I ask why you built the cabinet first and then went looking for a driver instead of first choosing a driver and getting a cabinet designed for it?

Hi,

Totally the wrong design for home hifi and subwoofers.
They belong in a PA doing upper bass and midrange.

I got the idea from reggae sound system that use scoops as subs.- so yeah lets start build, only after i start to think..
Very helpfull the other forum. I put the question on booth forum at same time so i can get more answers.
I know this small box wont go as deep as a 18inch scoop. I cant measure exactly the horn size, (any help?) But i think is something like 1.5meters so cut of about 55hz.

Fine for 100Hz up, look nice, might hit hard.
If you truly wanted a sub, rent a white van and ditch these...
