Went deaf tonight.... woofer related
well my friend(toyota celica) had a kicker comp 10" (150rms) in a 1 cubic foot sealed box and 150 watt rms amp and he switched to a $30 pioneer 10"(200rms) and it was a lot louder. so i told him i could build him a box for the kicker that would put the pioneer to shame (since the pioneer works better in a sealed and the kicker in ported)...
so i designed and built him a ported box (he paid for the supplies).
Played mims - move on his current settings with pioneer sub and sealed box(bass boost +12, gain at max, bass on head +10, played at volume 35(just clipped and distorted after 35)). was loud but very distorted, shook a little bit and could kinda feel it.
Switched to my ported box new settings (bass boost 0, gain adjusted to not clip so turned down a lot, settings on head Flat, played at 40) played a lot clearer and hit 10x harder... gonna get some vids up tmmrw on youtube hopefully.
drove around and blasted songs for an hour, kinda deaf right now lol
