Reason being is the HF has lower inductance.0.96mh vs 3.17.. although the HO in parallel Would be 3.17 divided by 2...still not as low as the HF single 4 ohm which is 0.96mh... not sure what to do..
Wow that would be just as good af the HF. Good enough to where I wouldn’t see it reasonable to switch my Rockford 1 ohm amp with another 2 ohm amp. I would be using two of the DVC 4+4ohm HO’s to get down to a 1 ohm final load. I believe the 3.17mh listed on the spec sheet is the inductance with the coils in series if I’m not mistaken or do you think it’s 3.17mh per coil?The ho in parallel would be 0.56 i believe, and not 1.585 👍🏼
Also consider that loudspeaker technology hasn't changed much for 100 years. Yes we have fancy new cone materials, and some tricks to reduce distortion, and increase output, but overall speakers now aren't significantly different than they were 20 years ago. This is why there is still love for "old school" gear. Unless it's broken, an old speaker is just as good as it ever was, and plenty of old speakers can be used in the same hi-fi scenarios as a modern speaker. Considering the simplicity of a subwoofer, it's no surprise that there are plenty of great options floating around for very good prices.Forgive me for the confusion. I wasn’t saying to go with an Eclipse sub as I did. I was merely trying to say that there are A LOT of very good subs out there that don’t get the recognition that they should. I brought up my Eclipse scenario because it was a sub I wasn’t even thinking about. It was by chance that my installer had one around that fit my application perfectly and I’m glad he pointed it out. I hope this helps!
That will be in series like you say as the specs are with the coils in seriesWow that would be just as good af the HF. Good enough to where I wouldn’t see it reasonable to switch my Rockford 1 ohm amp with another 2 ohm amp. I would be using two of the DVC 4+4ohm HO’s to get down to a 1 ohm final load. I believe the 3.17mh listed on the spec sheet is the inductance with the coils in series if I’m not mistaken or do you think it’s 3.17mh per coil?
If it’s 3.17 in series then in theory each coil would be 1.585mh so in parallel LE would be 0.7925mh...
This is just a guess because I’ve seen other DVC subwoofers with their spec sheets listed with the coils wired in series...
Check this out:Dayton RSS265-44 ho has been serving me well for ~ $160. I’m currently searching for information on the perception of distortion. So far it seems like there are better places to spend then on a premium subwoofer. Anyone wanting to throw some numbers on where, frequency wise, perception of distortion begins to “matter” please do. I’ll even purpose that some like certain types of distortion when present.
So true ! I don't know how many different brands / sizes of subs Ive owned in 30 years, but probably at least 20 brands, from 8"s to 18"s... and as it turns out, my current sub (somewhat of a budget brand 18"... Skar ZVX) "in its current enclosure" is the best sounding sub, I've ever owned. I swear if you could only hear it, without seeing it, I might be able to convince you, that it was four 8"s, or 10"s. Super tight, fast, and articulate. But then on really deep stuff, it can do lightweight hair tricks. FunJust about any sub can be an “SQ sub” if it’s in a proper box. Subs are far more forgiving than high frequency speakers, displacement is king. We barely hear distortion in low frequencies, and a lot of the distortion we do hear simply makes the sub sound louder.
Pick the sub that models best off of the power you intend to use, and the enclosure size/type you intend to use.
