    I would like to know the response of an ABC. I have a idea of the frequency response but am not sure if it is correct or not. Basically I took the FR of both the chambers and put them together with a proposed cabin gain in it. Something like this. Where the light blue line is one FR with cabin gain and the Pink one is the other with cabin gain, then the red one is both combined with cabin gain. Like I said I would like to get it on an RTA to see how it is acting exactly. I was planning on getting a cheap RTA setup later on.

    I've seen people use horn/Transmission line type enclosures. I just don't know what type of calculations they are using because the mouth area and throat area's on them are no where close to traditional calculations. Even using some of the compromised configurations they still seem to have larger Mouth and throat areas then what I seen.

    Theres an idea. I almost put one in the ABC I have to see what it would do. I would like to try a 4th order bandpass but I'm not sure I could fit it in my cars trunk. I also started to do some research on horns, but I can't seem to see how people get them small enough to fit in a car. (I see what you did there. Got me thinking of different enclosure ideas and make me want to get it back in my car. :angry: )

    Thanks guys, picked me up a bit. I can probably safely say that I cant ditch audio, we'll just say I'm taking a break from having stuff in my car for awhile.

    Thanks, it will probably turn around. I more then likely wait till it gets warmer out to put everything back in the car. For anyone that was wondering, I got into an accident 2 weeks ago and my car had a good chance of being totaled so I pulled all the equipment out. The car was fixed and now there is only stock stuff in it.

    X2 except for the potty training, I'm already potty trained.
  9. What are you supposed to drill through the bottom cover to mount it then?
  10. Is the plastic piece on the bottom able to slide? It looks like it should.

    I don't believe so. I guess it could have shorted between the bolt and star washer. Everything else is fine the fuse isn't blown, just the star washer. I'm thinking the washer was just poor material and failed under the current load. No worries though went to the hardware store got new washers and everything is fine now.

    Yes I seen all the problems doing the research for my friends. They all seemed like fixes most people could do. I dont know just seems like a typical microsoft product that was rushed out. As I'm not to much of a gamer I think I'd rather have the PS3 for bluray and Gran turismo 5.

    That would be sweet but no I didn't. It was a friends and he was flipping out because he couldn't fix it. After seeing the insides and the way the heat sinks are held on ( his problem), I dont know if I'd want one. The sinks are on by a just placing it over the chip and threw four holes in the mobo then a four point spring clamp on it. After everything is connected the stock clamps allow for a little bit of play, which I think there shouldn't be because if there is play then it is not transferring heat well.

    I was a little vague on my PLC experience, I've learned all about the I/O boards and the way they work. I've had to write ladder logic diagrams for the tests, the place that comes up short is writing an extensive program in actual software. Written simple programs, but that doesn't matter seeing as every manufacturers programs are a little different.

    Only learned Q BASIC and that was enough. While it was amusing and felt good to get it to work, just couldn't imagine looking at lines of code all day. Touch a little bit on PLCs but never got direct hands on experience.

    12" Flatlyne Review

    Ordering process and packaging. I posted in a topic at SSA asking if they were available in D4 coils because they only listed D2 the places I looked. Nick told me they could do D4 and to email him if I was interested. So following various threads here and other places I decided to go with the Flatlynes because I like to be different and not to many people have them. I emailed Nick(Incriminator) on the 22nd of December and got a reply within a half an hour. I sent payment 10 minutes after I got a reply and an hour after that he emailed me and told me they were added to the list. After all the holidays he emailed me on the 5 of January and told me they were going out that day and I received them on the 7th of January. Upon receiving them I was impressed by the outside of the package, fragile tape and stickers letting the handlers know to be careful with the packages. I like the foam cushion protecting the top of the woofer and the woofer was in a plastic bag as well. The motor was sitting in a half box lined with foam to prevent it sliding around. Each woofer also came with a little care package consisting of a sticker, pamphlet showcasing their product line up and mission statement, a user manual for the woofer consisting of wiring diagrams, enclosure recommendations, and warranty info, and a disclaimer sheet explaining hearing loss and the air driven cooling used. Build quality. This driver is heavier then it looks, shipping weight is 30lbs and I believe that is all driver. I couldn't imagine the top assembly being more then 5lbs leaving about 25lbs for the motor. The surround on the sub feels to be really heavy duty just from the feel of it and I punched through some of the mounting holes which was a little resistive for a tiny screwdriver. The cone appears to be very rigid having a smooth feel to the back and a textured fiberglass feel on the front. The dust cap on the driver is very tasteful not flashy(which I like, not a flashy person at all). The dust cap is also very shallow not a big convex shape also referred to as boob cone. The drivers suspension is stiff only moving about a 1/4 inch when pressing firmly. The driver has stitched leads which is a nice touch and the coils all measured in spec of 2.8 per coil. The ADC is an interesting feature on their lines which raises the basket about 1/4 inch from the motor assembly. Playing the drivers free air you can really tell it works, just playing a 30Hz tone for a minute at ~75watts the motor seemed a few degrees cooler after playing. That means the coils should have stayed cooler then without it. And last the motor assembly, it is about 8 & 1/4 inch in diameter with a top plate of 1 & 1/4 inch tall, about 1 inch tall magnet, and a bottom plate that is about 3/4 of an inch. Almost forgot about the beautiful "black chrome" finish on the motor. Listening impressions Some of the test music included. There was just to many to list. Trick Daddy - F**kin Around 50 Cent

    12" Flatlyne Review

    Thank you for the compliments I tried. HeHe Yes Barry Adamson. I loved the work he did on the Lost Highway soundtrack so naturally I investigated more into his music and like a lot of it, I also like a lot of Angelo Badalamenti's pieces also. Yes you can port the Flatlynes. From what Nick(Incriminator) said they follow the same box requirements as the LI series.

    12" Flatlyne Review

    I didn't do any type of strict break in, played a 30hz tone free air on 75 - 100 watts for a minute or so, and a couple hours of playing in the install. My amp that is pushing them is a sundown Audio prototype rated at 1400wRMS @ 1ohm @ 12.5V.
