With so many people going for the jugular on designs and fab work.. I'd like to see it all in one thread. So here it is!
Some designs win. Some designs fail.
Some turn out perfect. Some don't fit or work for shit.
IF your post is of a WIN title your post WIN.
IF yours post is of a FAIL title your post FAIL.
Make sure you give credit to whoever designed it also!
I don't have one to post off the top of my head. I'm looking for your submissions.
I honestly don't have pictures.. but I can tell you about 12 years ago I built what I intended to be a 4th order for eight 15s in a blow through..
it was three long skinny chambers much like a few disigns I've seen pop up lately. It failed miserably because the port acted as an extension of the front chamber... it was really bad. Giving each 15 5oowatts RMS at 14.4v..4000 watts through eight 15s!... and it was an epic fail.
After giving up on it, we ripped it out and I built a 6th order for one of those 15s.. ran it off 300watts.. and it was LOUDER..
worst fail of all time. but i redeemed myself with on 15.
anyway.. long skinny chambers on bandpass.. stay away from them. lol.
Also.. when the port is more than half the surface area of the wall it's mounted in.. it's not really going to act as a port.. it will act as an extension of the chamber... so.. whatever your rear chamber is.. better be pretty good.. cause that's what you are relying one.
I know.. but 12 years ago means.. I don't have a digital copy and I'm not sure where I have the hard copies.
