Has anyone uses Clarions 32" sub (SRW8000) for a home theater. I have heard a few in cars but never in a home. Just looking for feedback, I could get one fairly cheap, Wondering if it would be worth my time.

The T/S params should tell most of the story.

What are they?

All I could find was Qts: 0.4, Fs: 17, Vas: 312.9 and that Vas number seems suspiciously low to me...

And how cheap is fairly cheap?

Here are the real T-S parameters.

I had to "hack" clarion's site to get 'em.


Music Peak: 1000W
SPL: 97dB/w/m
Fs: 17Hz
Vas: 100.13ft^3
Mmd: 613.2g
Qes: 0.42
Qms: 8.86
Qts: .4
Sd: 596.5in^2
Max stroke: 18.3mm
Xmax. Lin.: 13.8mm

It would be real interesting in a 100cu-ft box with 4 8" ports each 13" long.

Hmm, 10L of Vd from a Carion 32" sub or 10L of Vd from a pair of Tumults or 4 Tempests. I wouldn't have to think very hard about those choices.

Dustin,

We never said the sub was practical. I myself want to see what the Resonant Engineering/Adire 24" ends up like myself.

Not much to add until CES... just that you can now fit the linear displacement of over a dozen 15XXX subs on a 24"X24" baffle.
There's also rumors of a new Adire car sub coming out with over 4" X-max one way.

The further story is that they will be almost the same sub one tweaked for low Fs (Adire) and the other more for SPL (RE).

If you run some rough numbers. The RE XXX 15 has 5.183L of displacement. 12 times that would be 62.2L of displacement. If it were to have a 23x23" square cone it would have a 3.6" of X-max (1 way). If it were a 23" circular cone it would have 4.6" of X-max (1 way).
