Default Fi Q10, Hornresp, D.A.T.S. vs. Me :)

How to start this off??

Well, I got this way cool Fi Car Audio 10" Q. Here are some pics of how it arrived to me.

Waiting at the doorstep.



Opening up the box.



Out of the box and on to the driveway for some pics.



Side profile shot.



Get a load of that motor. O_o



A word from the people who made this possible.



The plan will be for a simple ported box with an aero-port. I'll input all the manufacturers parameters and box specs into Hornresp and see what it chugs out. To follow up, I'll use a Dayton Audio Test System (D.A.T.S.) formerly know as the Woofer Tester, to verify the impedance curve and box tuning.

If all goes well, I'll have a nice bumping system. Worst case, I get flamed to death on the interwebs. Stay tuned.

Alright, well, not much happening just yet. I had to mow the lawn today. :/ Good thing, is that a cold front rolled in, so it was nice and cool outside.



Now the good stuff. I broke out with the old tape measure and took some measurements of available space. Scratched my head and stared aimlessly at the Hornresp Input Parameters screen. Then I came up with this:


Box volume 1.5cuft (42.47L). Port specs: 4" aero port (81.03cm^2), length 17" (43.18cm). Tuning: 33.62Hz


Hornresp Input Parameters screen.



SPL Response, [email protected], I think. Eeek! look at that peak. O_o



Impedance Curve. :/ Looks right to me.



Group Delay. I have no idea.



Here is a sketch I made of what I'm gonna build.



Excuse the mess, I'm left handed. That's it from me. Now your its your turn. Share your thoughts, suggestions, and predictions.

Here are various shots of my box build.



I had been hearing many things about "Arauco" plywood so I decided to give it a shot. A bit shout out to the fellas at the Home Depot around the corner from my house. Those guys have always been cool about trimming the wood down to manageable sizes with their awesome panel saw.



The goods:





Another change up for me is using a nail gun instead of wood screws. This made it so much easier and quicker when being an army of one.



The box coming together:




Under this stack is the baffle being glued together. On a side note all that wood is for a project I said was going to be a quick one. Joke is on me, that wood has been sitting in the garage for a year. :\





Here is a shot of the baffle ready to go on the box.





I though I'd give the box edges a little round over.





Assembled box pics.







A little shot of the terminal cups I made up for the box.





Sub, meet box. Box, meet sub.





Woot, woot! Box finished.









This is officially my fastest box build. It took me a week of afternoons to pull this off. Hooray for me. :P

:/ I know, I'm old and I'm slow. It doesn't help that I'm only allowed to play after I serve dinner and all my chores are done. Thanks for the complement.

Thanks. It also makes for a nice stool to sit on and eat a sandwich.

Love those subs! I had a Fi Q 15 on a DTR1.1700 and it was a great trunk setup.. better SQ than most subs and love to play low.. box looks great!

Don't knock on us left handers.. lol. I love being left handed
