I have searched alot and found threads talking about some enclosures before you guys recevied them. HOw about actual enclosure sizes that you have built. I just swapped out my Shiva to my new AV12 in my (115L Dharman Clone with 2 3" Flared ports) and WOW that AV12 is like Jack said AWESOME. I tried my hardest to bottom it out with no resluts Posted Image

I am using the PE 250W amp with te rumble filter modified, now i want to build an enclosure for the AV12 and the AV15. What would you guys recommend.....


Thanks,

Tony

Could you bottom out the Shiva in that enclosure??

The reason I ask is because I have had a few different alignments with my Shiva. Sealed, large and small, ported and now in a transmission line. I like the TL alignment the best. Unfortunatley, it tends to bottom out on some low frequency scenes, like Scene 13 in Monsters Inc. Also, with some music, particularly bass test tracks, I just can't get to WOW levels.Posted Image

I was wondering if the AV12 would be any better with a TL.

Dude,

There is no comparison. I had the Shiva in the enclosure and couldn't turn the amp gain past 1/4 without bottoming out. Now with the new AV12 i can turn the amp ALL the way up to disrotion levels(I Know this is not good) and the sub NEVER bottoms out. I am building another enclosure right now......

Haven't built mine yet, but I plan on either a 4.25cu-ft tuned to 18hz or 3.5cu-ft tuned to 20hz for my av12.

How important do you guys feel frequencies under 20hz are? I'm thinking the loss in db from the 20-40 hz region(with the 4.25cu-ft) isn't worth the extra extension down to about 18hz. So I'll probably build the 3.5cu-ft box.

One other thing, is it worth it to spend the extra 30 bucks for the rythmik 380w instead of the PE(300-794) 280w amp? I probably won't use any of the rythmik's additional bass boost features...

Here's the box we built (not finished yet) for AV15. It's around 5.5 cu ft tuned to 23 Hz (I think, its somewhere around there). It sounds great and can play pretty loud. We're powering it with a Crest VS900 (with a new quiet fan) and the amp definitely has headroom (probably for another AV15!). Here's a pic of it:

Dual 4" ports are used to tune it. No noticable port noise can be heard. I'd recommend this alignment to others because its pretty much as small as you really want to go with this woofer, but still responds flat to 23 hz anechoic and has good output.

I just got done building my new box for the AV12 and i used the SVS IPB1 alignment. Its coming out nice, it's a total 3.5ft3 with a 4" port tuned to 22hz.


Ryan,

that is a nice box, can you do me a favor and take measurements of that Bad Boy Posted Image


Brian,

I think tuning that low IMO is a waste. I have the AV12 currently in a 4.1ft3 tuned to 18hz and i have been messing with the PE 250W amp resistors and tuning higher and it sounds WAY better at 22hz on up....


Back to the Garage i go.....Keep this thread running guys..

Tony, how much extra space(cu-ft) are you adding to compensate for the volume of the av12 and the bracing?

Brian Bunge is building me a AV15 sub. The outside enclosure dimension will be 28"H X 24W X 26D. This comes in at 225L roughly. It will be tuned to 20Hz with the HS500 amp. It will have two 4" flared ports.
