Re: Ported RL-P 15 Project

Well, it's been more than a couple of days, but I think that I'm on the last coat of poly.

Here's a couple of shots.

Re: Ported RL-P 15 Project

Glad to see a different shot of that cat.....in the first series of pictures, it looked like a demon

Looks pretty stout and a great job of keeping your work area clean.

Re: Ported RL-P 15 Project

Ok, the enclosure is finished. I'm just waiting to order the drivers. Mike should get back to me tonight with the final quote and I'll send him off the funds for two RL-P15 D2s. The amplifier will arrive tomorrow, so once the drivers show up I'll be ready to start up.

I've been playing around with some modeling and here is what I've come up with so far.



It is low passed at 80 Hz with a second order Butterworth and high passed at 20Hz with a second order Butterworth as well. There is 3 dB of boost at 20 Hz.

Any thoughts? I'm pretty new at this so I'd appreciate any and all input.

Well, I've constructed the grill.



The drivers should be on the way any day now. The amp showed up last week, so once the drivers arrive it should be ready for testing!

Nope, once all is said and done, this sub should have cost slightly more than a Velodyne DLS-5000R. I'm hoping it will outperform it (I've read that the Velo has some problems below 30 Hz). Since I'm moving up from a Mission 10" sub, I'm sure I'll be blown away regardless.

Re: Ported RL-P 15 Project

Nice looking sub you got there. Are you going to put any roundovers on the ports?
