if u have an unlimited budget hire a bunch of scientists and engineers to build the greatest sub ever. Or just go to a major sub company and talk to them about a completely custom driver...if ur too lazy to try that call tc they make custom drivers
Strength to Moving Mass/Area ratio is highest with the MTX Jackhammer. Wether you think it's the loudest or not, it has the capability of creating sound pressure levels higher than any other conventional sub. Now as far as amplitude, which is relative to spl, there are a few other low production woofers that have been assembled that can deliver more amplitude than a jackhammer.
Think of it like this:
Lets start out by comparing two types of woofers, woofers A and C, by horsepower. Now... sub A 100 horse sub C 25 horse (also note both have equal cone area)
You would think that four C subs could create as much sound pressure level as only one A sub. This isnt always the case. Lets do an experiment with sub A and C so this can be better understood. We'll start out with two 6" pvc pipes with a diameter the same as the woofer's voice coils. Each pipe will be afixed to the top of the woofer where the cone and voice coil meet. Next we will be connecting the maximim positive DC voltage each woofer can handle. What we are looking for and measuring here is the amount of physical weight each woofer can lift. In this experiment we wont be comparing suspension ratios or anything like that, just raw "horsepower".
Now that we've determained sub A can lift 100 lbs and sub C can lift 25 pounds we have come up with a new way of measuring the subs strength. So with this in mind lets get back to comparing these two subs in a real life atmosphere.
Lets say sub A created a maximum 160 decibals of spl. You would tend to think that four of the C subs could do 160 as well however this isnt possible for this reason.
Sound pressure level does not even out or distribute it's force to each idividual woofer, the pressure level will be equal on all four woofers in turn limiting the spl to the woofers "horsepower". So, no matter how many subs you pack in the car you are still limited to it's individual strength.
Now back to the MTX Jackhammer, the one that weighs 320 lbs, 22", and has tons of power handling, yeah, I think this sub will crush anything else out there. But then again, this is only my opinion
(btw, this "experiment" of course is not an accurate way of testing, What I intended however is to give a visual image and understanding of how important motor strength is in spl regardless of xmax and all the other variables)
Strength to Moving Mass/Area ratio is highest with the MTX Jackhammer
how do you know this, and when you add more subs to a system..its only like a 3-4 db increase as in doubling power as well....but if this sub is soo ungodly, how come not so many people use it in competitions, how come i cant find it for sale. if its just that great, why isnt everyone out there with ubers of money trying to get ahold of this sub
who care about the one loudest sub it's about quantity if all you want is it to be ridiculously loud
actually there isnt really a single thing that means the most in spl, i would say the air its the motor strength. but dat dude. lol...get out of this convo if your not going to know what your saying lol
Remember most all manufactures stats include the top plate, back plate, and the yolk in thier magnet weight. Where as MTX isnt giving you the motor assembly weight of 900oz, no, thats just the magnet itself at 900oz, which I might add is the largest magnet on a woofer ever. I've spoken with MTX a few times about this woofer, even before its unveiling at CES, what really gives you a sense of its size is knowing that there wasnt a charging table large enough for the magnets they designed for this woofer. So, they had to custom order what is now the largest charging table in the world at over a quarter million dollars just in order to charge the magnets on this beast. And the rating of 5000rms, that means wrms, not burping power. A 50,000watt burp is more like it.
dat dude...ok yea adding 15 subs would add a ton no matter what, but if you took 4 sony p5 15's and stacke dit up to a 15 inch Mt, the mt would eat them alice, but adding UBERS of solox's which i doubt you could properly power, properly box, run correctly it wouldnt do that great
zac, i see what your saying, but i still dont understand how this is the BSET EvER, what about cutom woofers and so on and so forth for example those german scientists who hit 177 with like 2 subs i thinjk..i dont remember, but what do you mean by charging table?
you would have to make a tank of a box to hold the jackhammer, not to mention the size of it. if you have the money, then space is the problem, he would just be able to afford the sub, and not a 3000+ dollar amp setup
dat dude...how many times are you going to post that CNN link????d*mn ive seen it in like 4 different posts.
HiFonics has made the 10,000wRMS XX Maxximus Mono-Block Ultra D-Class Design 4-Ohm Power Rating 2x5000 2-Ohm Power Rating 1x10000/10kW hes just needs 13 of those to match his 130,000 van, but man he'll need like what double 0 GA wire? but anyway, I dont see the point of making loud noise to just beat the guy next to you, but hey if you want to hear a system over a jet or spaceshuttle... neat yes but nothing you can enjoy.
Dude, how can you all forget about great brands like Pyle and Pyramid LOL jk, the loudest sub would probably make you go deaf in the first hour of listening anyway, not really, but eventually it would.
lol yea bass, lets do it lol, i couldnt imagine, i mean seriously, thats like an ant standing the box of an MT or X.x.x or somen lol, imagine having a box big enough for you to get into and sitting in there while the music is playgin
