Sub project ideas

Hi,

Im in need of some ideas for a new subwoofer project. Currently i use a bkelectronics monolith driver in a 95l ported cab tuned to about 20hz, this is a very nice sounding subwoofer but i want to design something new and better.

What i have to work with is 2 monolith drivers and an undecided plate amp.

What im stuck on is a trying to design a good subwoofer that will ustilise the monolith drivers the best.

Specs of the drivers:

Impedance: 4 Ohms
Re: 3.7 Ohms
Le@1kHz: 1.30mH
Fs: 23.5Hz
Qms: 2.73
Qes: 0.416
Qts: 0.361
Vas: 61.6 L
Mms: 232g
Cms: 0.35 mm/N
Sd: 468.7 Cu Cms
Bl: 17.46 T-M
Xmax: 15mm

So any one got any ideas of what box or tube would be good for 2 of these drivers?

atb,
Greg
 
Greets!

Check out the big tapped horn thread: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=97674

Anyway, with this driver it's not small by most folk's standards and of course with two it's somewhat larger, though not the 2x it would ideally be if sealed or ported:

14.14 - 112.98 Hz conic TH = 329.104 L net
14.14 - 112.98 Hz conic TH - dual = 451.112 L net

Compared to my mid '50s dual 15" ~566 L EBS 'subs' that peak out at ~109 dB/16 Hz corner loaded, the dual driver one is by far the size/performance winner, with so much dynamic headroom you can EQ it flat to ~12 Hz if corner loaded and still do DD/DTS reference with enough dynamic headroom above ~25 Hz to boost EQ as much 'slam' into it as you can stand if you want to assuming a suitable amp capable of driving them to Xmax. Short of downsizing, this could be the last sub you'll ever need. ;)
