Default Rumble Filter

I found this (PIE Adjustable Line Driver with Subsonic Filter) and was thinking about buying it. Will this work like a rumble filter. I'm still looking for a rumble filter.


Thanks Solo

10 Hz sounds kind of low for a rumble filter.

A rumble filter should filter out frequencies below what the port on your sub is tuned to.

My ports are tuned around 15-16hz.

the posted filter/booster does not specify the steepness of the bass roll-off.
I would suggest that 2pole is too slow to be really effective.

Try building one based on 4pole (dual opamp/channel) or even 6pole (2duals/ch).

You should simulate with WinISD pro to determine your requirements. Look at power and the excursion curve. Add filters and see what you get.

That unit looks fairly useless.

just to add : the best sort of rumble filter is a peaking second order.
It is precisely tuned to very near the port frequency and usually has
adjustable Q for precise tuning of low bass levels.
The above implies that the normal 4th order roll-off of the sub is
overdamped and that you end up with a 6th order overdamped
extended bass alignment.

If all the above is done well then you also get a built in rumble filter.
(compared to simply driving with an amplifier with flat response)
