these subs made by soundstream are the loudest mothers ive ever heard, even louder than l7's. if theyre loaded on a selaed box they suck but theyre bad az if theyreput in the ported box down the middle. has anyone encountered these subs. please reply
the soundstream tarantula is a good sub. comparing it to an L7 isn't saying much really as I'm not a big solobaric fan anyway. I still prefer my RE triple X subs to be honest, but there's a big difference in price there too.
the cerwin-vega stroker and stroker pro are good subs, too. great for SPL events but very touchy about being in just the right box to work to their peak performance. They also like a lot of power.
an SPL of as little as 156dB can stop the human heart. Keep that in mind when you turn the stereo up really loud in a confined space.
Hey glass, how you running them? I saw on your site you had AP on the system layout picture. Did you do the membrane in front or behind the cone? Just curiosity. I found a car from a guy today and I think it's the one 1970 Fairlane, all original, burgundy. Package tray is HUGE, I could probably squeek 3-4 subs AP back there.
Thanks. I'm contemplating a lot of things. I was thinking front mounted membrane if I do AP, simpler to install and it'll couple better, and cut 2nd and 3rd order harmonics. I guess I'll have plenty of time to think it out saying $$$$ is a factor right now. I found an Arc dealer in Savannah, gonna call them up and see if they have the Rainbows I want to demo, I'm kinda wondering about the new Eclipse components too. I'm not too sure about them though, website says they now have a titanium tweeter, which is usually ugh in my book. Never know, though.
heh I may give ya a call this winter and see what kind of deal you can get on some alpine and dyn stuff for me. I'll let ya know after I finish with the motor and tranny, and body work... that's coming first.
My brother closed the shop bout 2 months after I left, he had finished school, supposed to be getting a job in HR soon. We had been suffering this year cause of all the jobs lost in town, plus he was getting tired of audio in general. All you'll find there is some Italian restaurant named "The Brick Oven", at least that's what the rumor is. Should be good food, though
