I'll let you all know how it sounds in a little bit. I just opened the box, and I gotta say this thing is more massive than I even thought it would be. Pictures do it no justice, and the magnets look a lot bigger in real life. Thing weighs a ton.
It's a 15" and weighs 45 lbs. You gotta remember, it doesn't have as big of a magnet as say the Brahma, because the Avalanche's magnet is wider, and has more surface area, which is just as effective as mass.
Ok guys, I tested it out, and saying it's a low end sub is an understatement. I swear, you've never heard anything like this. In my old system I didn't even hear some notes I can hear now. The lows are so incredabley strong, I'm afraid now that I'm gonna rattle stuff apart in my car. I'm a little afraid of screwing up my headunit too, because it shakes so much. I played a 7 hz test tone through it, and you wouldn't believe the amount of air moving. I will agree with other Avalanche owners and say that it's such a low end dominant sub, that the highs aren't as good as they could be, but I really can't complain.
I got a new idea for a subwoofer motor design but im not sure if i should leak any information. It would be incredibly small, same power or possibly more powerful then the average motor, require less enclosure space due to smaller size, have incredibly low failure risk, and be alittle bigger then say a small can of cat food. It would revolutionize the industy.
I wish you'd share your idea with somebody. I'm sure there's no way anybody in here could steal our idea and actually produce a motor. You know, if what your thinking is the real deal, and works, you really should make a prototype and get a patent right away. A North American patent is only about 400 bucks.
Lol. It's pretty hard to figure out exaclty how your gonna make something very small with high power handeling. You don't think other people have tried it already? I meen, no offence at all, but it's really hard to beleive that a 14 year old has come up with a revolutionary motor design.
Hey Joe. How does that Avalanche compare to the x.x.x-15".Leave the money issue aside. I've heard that it hits a lot lower than the x.x.x. Is it as loud as x.x.x.You know, I was going to buy one from a local shop employee but he backed out on me at the last minute. FU(K!! He wanted 275 for it but settled for 250 so I gave him the cash then when I went to pick it up from his home he changed his mind and gave me my money back. I never even got a chance to see it. I don't even know if that was good deal or not 'cause I don't know how much they're going for new.
If you were gonna get a 15" x.x.x for 250, then that woulda been an awsome deal. The 15's are over 400 bucks new.
As for comparison, I can't say, because I have never heard a X.X.X. It is an absolute low end monster though, and crushes MTX 9500's and Jl W7's. That's really all I have heard to compare it to that's in the same league.
Yeah, I waited around forever to build mine too. Just make sure you get the d@mn thing done so you can pop the sub in the day you get it. Trust me, once you see if your not gonna want to wait to put it in.
Well when i bought mine they only had 1 of each left of the 12, 15, and 18 ava's and i bought the last 15 so if any they have 2 left and Dale said that these are going to be collectors items. And their not using their own motor its just a motor that they dont have to pay to use
Well, I love what I've heard so far, and I don't even have my HO alt in yet, and I really didn't listen to it for very long, so I know it can only get better. Even though, I still do plan on selling it eventually and trying something different. It won't be for a while though. Probably 6 months or so. Next sub I'll test out is a SoundSplinter Rl-P 15", then after I sell that I gotta get an ID MAX
WHAT - so all 15's and 18's are gone ? I was looking at their web site and saw the price for the 18" at 275. I'm still gonna give em a call tomorrow 'see if I can still get an 18" Ava. What do they come in , dual 2 ohm ?
My brother-in-law has designed a residential back-up-power electrical pannel, and he has got a pattent on it. It is active for 20 years (I think). He would have loved to pay just $400 for the pattent, but he actually spent over $20,000.
