It's a neo magnet, i've got the older model without the fancy basket and it weighs NOTHING.

I was actually using it in a small bass-guitar enclosure. It sounded VERY tight compared to my other fender amp with a big 15" in it. Never used it for anything else, but i plan on using it in an install for my 63 beetle.

Me like 'very tight'. What alignment were you running. And too cool on the '63 Bug. The sound deadening must increase the weight by half. My buddy had his car literally lifted over another by thieves. It would be nice to see a build up.

IIRC, it's been that price for close to a year now.
Nope, this is $10 off the price it's been hovering at for the last 6 months or so. The price has come down a few times in the past year, and I'm betting they're going to run out soon. The 12"s have gone NLA, so this is the time to jump if you intend to buy any of the 10"s.

Sadly my 63 beetle hasn't gotten the audio build started yet. I'm going to go as nice as I can on it, take my time, do it all right. Since i'm running a generator instead of an alternator, that means low amperage so i have to make it very effecient. I couldn't stand my NS10 sitting on a shelf so i actually just built a 1.6 cu. ft. box with a port today for my home theater. IT SOUNDS AWESOME! It goes VERY low for a 10" sub, it is pretty dang efficient as well! For the decently small size box with small port (2.25"x appr. 4" long) it hits low, hard, and makes the floor shake! I'm tempted to get more now that they are this cheap. I actually made the baffle out of a 2" thick piece of solid wood...a solid wood door piece :)

'Generator', dang this is gonna be a challenging and interesting build. That ported NS10 should fit the bill and ya gotta love the recycled door HT box. Thanks. There are so many damn interesting subs out there that are affordable until I try to own too many.:rolleyes:

Yeah, i'm beyond impressed with this little sub! I hooked it up in my apartment and kept having to turn the volume down lower and lower throughout the night from where the volume knob I assumed it should/would be on the receiver powering it, it's just an efficient, tight, lightweight, and accurate sub!

Why don't you do an alternator conversion on the Beetle?

Right now the engine is perfect and built out of 100% new parts, i would feel just wrong if I didn't put 100% new parts into an alternator conversion. That said, the cost is $200 + SH and right now it's not very high in my list of priorities. That's also for only a 81 amp output one which is the "high output" series. My generator currently outputs 30A which is not that bad if i design a system with low amperage in mind.
