I've always wondered what causes the tick at high excursion? Is it the coil itself actually coming in contact with something or is it the leads overstretching?
Current setup: 2 Obsidian Audio 18's with 8 layer aluminum spl coils and spiders
Power is via 2 car audio bargain CAB-1600.1's strapped @1 ohm. ..also in my spare bag of goodies is...
2 Stereo Integrity HT-15's
1 Stereo Integrity HST-15
2005 Tahoe which I nicknamed the william hung.... because she bang! Haha!
slight variance/deviation in the spider pick (more resistance in one spot), slightly uneven lead lengths, misaligned coil. in a normal ish gap, theres room for the coil to wiggle but at hih excursion, the deviation gets exaggerated
only issue you "could" have is the tick (usually former hitting pole) wearing through causing a short but its not real common as the pole would act as a simple series conductor

They are sa-12 v3 subs.
I need to build the box for them. I took out my current sub to motivate me to build the box sooner
I haven't tested them but I'll try to tonight. I'm just going by what it said on the box (tick)
I hope it's not too bad
I tested the subs I received and found the terminal leads very close to the spiders. Before testing them I bent the terminal leads up and tested them.
I didn't experience any ticking while I did a free air test. The only noise was them bottoming out! I guess I got lucky with my purchase. I finished my box today, 3.3 cubes net with a 6" aeroport
and i will install it tommorow with my tramps dsp3k. Thank you Sundown
