Hmm, I may have to try a pair of these since the Mk V is off for now.

Default SUNDOWN audio SD3 shallow mount -high excursion -small enclosure- 10"SUBWOOFE...

Mine has been an absolute trip. In my tuning efforts I've even got this sucker at a blasphemous 95 low-pass in effort to blend. When mids and sub are phased in well it's crazy good after finally attempting to treat my rear deck buzzing. Don't know how obscene it is to cross it that high but it kinda works. With cabin gain, my SD-3 10 doesn't seem to sweat reaching way down. Sealed in about .85cf.

Hey Babs,

Got myself a single SD3-10 and was wondering how much power you used yours with. It states 500 RMS however is that a conservative power or would it be able to handle a 1000 RMS with proper gain of course. I'll have it in a down firing sealed configuration with about .51-.55 to play with after placement.

Ran it with a PDV V9 no problem.

Question Re: SUNDOWN audio SD3 shallow mount -high excursion -small enclosure- 10"SUBWOOFER Re

I'm trying to size a square box that will put this at it's minimum net 0.5 cu. ft.

In doing so, is it wise at all to leave a slight gap between the back of the magnet and the inside wall of the box? I'm concerned about buzzing and thought I'd try to leave a 0.125" gap.

Also, with a box this small, would 0.75" thick MDF be necessary, or would 0.625" or even 0.5" be suitable since there aren't large expanses of wood?

Those motors are not vented. And the baffle should never flex. It can sit right on it if it had to.

I used 5\8 because that's what I had on hand. 1\2inch should be plenty though. Small surface would be harder to flex and let's face it this isn't supposed to be getting a crazy amount of power for burps.

I to would have some buzzing sound concerns of sitting it right on the enclosure.

Excellent. I'll design the box around 1/2" Birch ply and probably keep at least a 1/32+ of clearance between the back of the magnet and the back wall.
