Default How to build a subwoofer... SOFT PARTS

I have assembled the basic frame and motor structure of my build.

MONSTER 18" sub BUILD MTX 9500 4" VC my first build


I have also ordered the coil spiders, I currently have the cone.



NOW I HAVE NO IDEA how to assemble the soft parts of my sub.

I have no idea about order or technically how to do this.

Any suggestions?

I dont need the measurements I have the parts just need to know how to assemble them.

*EDIT* ACTUALLY what is the height of the pole?

Also are you building the motor that you have or is it for sale?

Center of the coil goes in the center of the top plate.

Measure the top plate thicknessThen divide by 2
Measure the coils WW and divide by 2
Then minus your total from the top plate from the total of your Coils WW.

Example

1" top plate
2" WW
Top plate: 1" / 2 = .5"
Coil WW: 2" / 2 = 1"
Coil height = 1" - .5" = Coil height from the top of your top plate of .5"

I have tested that amp about a bazillion times. I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.
