i was running a sub in my room off of a battery + charger and i went to take a pi$$, while i was gone i hard the volume all the sudden get horribly loud and then i heard a really loud THUNK. when i came back in the room i found my cat lying on the floor next to the wall, and next to a piece of what appeared to be a driver! the damn thing wasnt in there tight enough =(. RIP Scotch.
That makes absolutely no sense. Did the fricken sub blow up? From the way you tell your stupid story, it sounds as if somehow the volume was cranked up, and the sub rocketed out of the box and hit your cat, (which even if it were possible, it wouldn't kill a cat immediately)
Have you ever tried to break the magnet's off of a sub? Their riveted onto the basket of the sub. They don't just shoot off. I don't care how crappy the sub is, it's hard to break the magnet off. Find some pos sub and go out side and try to break the magnet off by throwing it around on cement. It takes quite a while.
Try putting your own ear up to the port, lol. I've done it... wasn't very smart. Just don't have the volume cranked, and slowly get closer to the port... then you'll see why people hit such high numbers in port-wars.
Marshall, I didn't say anything about what Matt Sibley hit... I don't even know who your talking about. All my point was, is once you hear just how loud ported boxes are with your ear right next to it, then you can comprehend how people hit in the 180's with port-wars.
I think that our poor friend mr. anonymous has his story backwards I think it goes like this: I was in my room trying to get my subwoofer to massage my nuts, I was running the setup on a charger since I don't have a drivers license even though I'm 28. When I turned the volume up for pleasure my cat started to pe/e all over the charger, I then screamed very loud as I heard a thunk which happened to be my cat rolling on the floor laughing his a$$ off at my pathetic attempt at arousal. After all this I learned a valuable lesson.....DON'T COME IN FORUMS LOOKING FOR ATTENTION YOU DUMB A$$
