Default Single 18" Trident on a BC3500

So far I have less than an hour of play time on this thing so it is still super stiff and seems no where near it true ability yet.

I'll just leave this here...

Is that even moving? I think you need more power.

It sounds pretty dang good to me so far. Haven't had much time to really get a feel for it. I'll have to report back with that after some more listening.

It's moving, my phone doesn't want to pick it up to well. It is nowhere near mechanical limits though. I was intentionally giving it hell and got a little stink and it still had plenty of excursion available. Curious to see what happens when it loosens up a bit.

I did a 1 second burp for each frequency to see what response looked like. Pretty darn flat if you ask me. The exception would be the chunk from 44hz-52hz where I was actually trying to score. Driver door open, left display is in the kick, right display is at the headrest while holding rpm at 2k. 147.56 at 50hz in the kick!!! I'll take it, considering this is my first time ever playing with a meter. I also took a video run on music at idle and did a 140 at 24hz, unfortunately my S3 seems to have corrupted the file.

I've had some more time to play around and just listen to a variety of stuff. So far, the trident seems to excel at everything I have thrown at it. From pop and rock to hip hop and down to the DJSNT/Decaf/etc. Accurate and powerful. Nice tight kick drum when called upon and just gets silly with the lows. Have yet to try any electronic and dubstep now that I think about it.

Box is 5 cubic feet net tuned to 30hz with 99 inches of port. Running at 1 ohm on a BC3500. When not going hog wild and chasing raw output, it has a heavy low end and peaks around 24-25hz. It seems to roll off on the high end around 60hz or so and 23hz on the low end(SSF is set at that point). I am thinking this sub would benefit from a larger amp. I feel like I am overdriving the amp to get the sub to come into it's own and both amp and sub warm up pretty good.
