Ghents,

A while back a few of us were searching for the parameters for the PylePro PDN8 8" Midbass.

PylePro - PDN8 - 8'' High Power High Performance Midbass

Here they are finally - (Per the documentation included with the PDN8 :D )

PylePro PDN8
_________________________________________________________________

FO(Hz) - 100
Qms - 8.2
Qes - 0.58
Qts - 0.55
Vas (CuFt) - 9
SPL (DB) - 94
Max Power - 1000 Watts
Rms Power - 500 Watts

I know I searched endlessly hoping to find these parameters. This is my ultra Budget whip-your-ass driver for my door enclosures. 2 per door to be exact.

Enjoy all!!!

- Scott

Well, I may not know for a LONG while. I haven't even started my doors yet. I will post a review when that is done.

Treetop used a set of the 10's in his door. Coupled to a set of horns. ended up being a concert in a tahoe. won an sq comp I believe. they are pro audio drivers so very efficient but they do not dig low.so 80 with an LR4 slope would be a necessity if not a bit higher.

Thank you, I couldn't remember who had used them previously. Also, thanks for the info on the crossover point. I will make note of that for later.

Hopefully I'll get off my butt and try the set I've had sitting for 3 months. Going 3-way with FR-88 mids and Diamond D6 silk tweets in a '07 Tundra.

Nice, I want to see someone using these or the PDN65's
Id like to find some PDN65's for my doors. I think they are shallow enough to fit.

i had 4 of these installed in a car and i have t/s parameters too

i pulled them myself with a wt2 a few times on different woofers to see how far they varied hope this helps

WOW! What a difference between the two drivers. Pardon my ignorance, is that typical of different drivers in general? Or, is it an attest to the "lower" quality manufacturing etc.?

I REALLY appreciate the info! You provided some parameters I was looking for while trying to figure out some of the enclosure specifics I was curious about.

Thank you!

Those two sets of t/s specs are actually very close!

Very nice.
REALLY?! Well, that just goes to PROVE my ignorance! :eek: How would those differences in the specs compare to those of a mid to high level driver? Now you have my attention. :snacks:

Honestly those specs are basically dead-on for two different drivers.

The only spec that is that much off is the [email protected], but it's less than 1% different.

How they would compare to a high-level driver is somewhat apple to oranges since these are more geared toward pro-audio.

Wow guys, thank you for the insight. I was playing around with Bass Box Pro and needed more T/S Parameters to do what I wanted. I am trying to figure enclosure size per driver for my doors.

A couple more questions if you all don't mind-

What parameters are you looking at/for when you determine whether a drive is well suited for a 'Free Air' (or Door) application?

Opposed to the parameters you look for versus sealed and vented enclosure? (Which are ?)

I have essentially a large flat canvas to work with when deciding on enclosure type.

Thank you all for the education!

Hey man, the PDN65's are to be found on the CHEAP! I remember seeing those for around $25.00 each!

Here actually,

Search Results for pyle PDN65 | JR.com for $26.99 each.

I got my PDN8's here as well.

Search Results for pdn8 | JR.com I got mine on sale for $29.99 each at the time.

****, you may be able to find them cheaper even. Not a bad price to experiment with and maybe find a gem!

Is that a white on red Corvette?

The short answer is: It depends.

Generally, low Q = small box; high Q = large box. Play around with various drivers in BassBoxPro to see how various specs affect enclosure requirements, and what those enclosures do to excursion and efficiency of a given driver.

If I were gonna run those Pyles for a midbass application, I'd put them in as much space as possible so as to not raise the Q and Fs. If you can do a ported, I'd try to tune it as low as possible because I'm sure those woofers don't have much Xmax. But again, it's best to massage the models to see just how much effort and volume you have to put into getting how much gain.

Unfortunately I've given up on fitting the PD8N's in my Tundra. Tried a bunch of locations and combinations and they're just too deep without seriously relocating the window track. I'll be posting them FS soon.

I was really looking forward to hearing them....

2 per door? I hope you plan on doing one of them as a .5 way. Otherwise you could end up with some interesting midrange results.

I'm looking to use them strictly for midbass. Why do you think 2 per door won't work? Just curious. The front will be running 3 way active. Still undetermined on the tweet that will accompany the Dayton RS100-4 in the pillars. Maybe looking at some different speaker options and moving the tweets lower to the kick with a 6.5 midrange. And of course, the 2 PylePro PDN8's per door, each in its own sealed enclosure running my midbass frequencies. This all is still in the experimental stage with the speaker placement.

Any food for thought?

Im running 5 (maybe 6) alpine amps total with 16 (or 20) channels available. Audiocontol EQL's for (R\L), and Audiocontrol 4xs crossovers. Not to mention my PG TLD 66 line driver and the Alpine 3617 DSP. Absolute overkill. Just always wanted to build a system like this. Now I have the equipment so i'm gonna give it a go! Almost forgot, sub-stage will be 2 MbQuart RWE-354 15" subs. As we all know, it is all ever-changing.

Nah, it's a 3rd Generation Camaro. Not even mine. Just an example of the door acreage available for the enclosure.

Also, thank you for the recommendation on the enclosure type and size. All of this info really helps! And thanks for the lesson on 'low Q' and 'high Q', not to mention Fs. This is starting to make sense...a little. :bash: I know for a lot of you this is all like :dead_horse:

I appreciate all of your help!
