Re: Build thread! Unknown 12" Sony driver...
Well, hooked it up to the 500W BASH. It definitely surprised again. Dialed it in to -9 from reference to play it safe. WOW. Played all the same scenes again. Everything hit the same or just below in terms of dB and this was playing at -3 less than before! I also ran a 20hz test tone....96dB @ -9 from reference and 100.4 @ -6 from reference. Didn't want to push it, but wow, what a difference! Nothing clipped or bottomed out....but likely wouldn't take much more do it.
I would say, without a doubt, it is worth it to purchase the $110 300W BASH amp for this build. No question.
