what peerless driver?
Hi, I'm planning to build a sub, and I came across two driver from peerless:
From a quick simulation with winISD they both reach low F3. I don't have problem of building big cabinet and neither of space. I'm going to use the sub with a pair of B&W monitor. What driver should I buy? wich has the best quality? from what I see the SLS series is a raplacement of the Classic series, right?
thank you very much
Active or passive?
The second driver appears to have been discontinued.
I would go for closed box.
1. Vc=75 L for Qtc=0.71 Fc=49 Hz
2. Vc=95 L for Qtc=0.6 Fc=45 Hz
3. Vc=125 L for Qtc=0.5 Fc=41.5 Hz
Try 2. Vc=95 L, x-over 12dB/oct. at 75-80 Hz.
It could be something about 87-88 dB/1W/1m.
Monitors should be less. If its not, with this unit, you must go on bass-reflex (90-91 dB) or active.
I made some simulation with lspcad lite:
for the first driver 309 liters with 2 reflex tube 10cm diamater 16cm long, so it goes around 21hz
for the second
131 liters reflex tube 10cm diameter and 26cm long and so we're again near 20hz
it's active, I already found a good amplifier with 100w on 8ohm
If the quality is equal or very similar naturally I would choose the first because it's bigger, and it's newer and if I'll broke it( but I don't think so) I will get better support.
thank you to all
Did you see anywhere/anytime 310 L bass-reflex box with 30 cm bass?
If you go with BR: Vb=110L, Fb=28.5-29.5 Hz, Dt=100 mm, Lt=160-190mm. Don"t ask how I calculate this.
I have the SLS12 in a closed box of 86 liters and my measurements are a f-6 of 27 Hz
The sound is very good and natural
Do you have an especial interest in BR?
Regards ( and sorry for my english)
Thank you Miguel for sharing your experience, finally I found someone who tested on ears these speaker.
I ordered the SLS 10.
well, I have special interest for BR because I can get lower F3.
But If I can get F3 30hz with a closed I would be happy, but I think it's impossible.
