Am i going crazy or is this for real? how can a pair of 6.5" get so low? i emailed them to see if i could order a box like it cause that seems like an amazing setup that's small, not much power, and very efficient, wow i wouldn't mind putting 2 boxes like that in my car!
i'm on a limited budget at this point until the summer when i get back to work. If i do end up getting a few of these box's i think it'd be hilarious to do the same thing the guys did in the video to the kids at my school, (guys have 15w3 and 4 12w6's setups) i wanna see there faces when i open up the trunk and show them that tinny @ss box with only 6.5"s!
can 6.5's really get that low though? the guys in the video were saying they thought it was 15's and 12's and 10's! can anyone explain how this is?
yea fanatic i'm planning on getting a 15 ti later this year and eventually putting it in a ss! that would be crazy!
that is if i don't get my cousins soundstream system, which would be crazy two 10" or 12" tarantula's with 1600/2 and 500/4 to other quality speakers. pioneer 8600mp hu!!!!
A snail shell works on the transmission line enclosure theory, where you tune the box to a certain fraction of the wavelength of the resonant frequency of the driver (usually 1/4 wave), basically it allows to speaker to drop 1/4 octave below it's resonant frequency, and below that frequency the driver loses damping, similar to a ported box. That's why it gets so low. Plus, T-line and Snail shells are more efficient than ported and offer SQ that is possibly greater than sealed, ported, etc. (IF it's build right).
when most people use the SS enclosure they mostly go with one sub do to the fact they are rather large. If you are on a budget they are very expensive just want you to knnow that. They are very very hard to make unless you absolutely know what you are doing. I only kow of two companies right now that make them. But like jon said they offer incredible sound down low and spl output without sacrafising the SQ of going ported. they are very nice boxes.
sorry james, but i meant the 6.5" box in the video on their website
they are relatively small and just from eyeing it i could fit 4 in my trunk with room to spare! I know the ss and doubleshot boxes are very expensive and that's why i'm looking at the 6.5" box because of the size but sheer ability to produce heart stopping bass!
