  2. Building a new enclosure for a peerless xls10 with matching passive radiator (400gm)

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    This is my first time posting, although I've been a long time reader of the forums. I am rebuilding this sub in a new enclosure, with a new amp, since I did such a cheapo job last time I built it. I had basically just thrown it in an old Velodyne enclosure that was made for an 8 inch sub with...

    Hi all, new to the forums :) I'm struggling with something I'm hoping you could help me with. I have a JVC RX5032V Receiver, and i'm trying to connect a Peerless S-200 powered sub-woofer to it, without much success. I've attached a photo of the rear of the sub-woofer, as well as a connection...
  4. Peerless 835028 or similar as a small HT subwoofer?

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I see that most of the postings in this forum and elsewhere deal with >12" subwoofer drivers in atleast a 2 cu ft box. My problem is a bit different. I am looking for the most bass/bang for buck in a <= 1 cu ft box. Has anyone tried the Peerless 835028 (XLS shallow mount 10" driver) in a small...
  5. Weak bass DIY Peerless

    DIY Speakers
    Hi all, I am a beginner in DIY speakers and have been reading quite a lot lately but cannot find the reason to why my speakers perform this bad at the lower frequencies 150hz and down. I am using Perless nomex 830875 crossed at approx 810hz with a 2nd order, no Zobel. Internal cabinet...
  6. Peerless XLS10 P830452 car build

    Mobile Audio
    Hi guys, long time lurker here. I fancy the above driver in a 1.0 cubic feet box in a honda accord. Is this feasible? I don't have access to winISD at the moment. I'd like to think I'd get better SQ at lower cost compared with a JL 12w3v3 recommended by my local car audio outfit. Grateful for...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi, after lots of researching and help on this forum, i decided to have a go at building my own subwoofer. I had the carpentry skills and tools, just needed a little more knowledge on what goes on inside that box. I used a 4ohm 10" peerless woofer with vmax 83lt. I decided to go the ported...
  8. peerless nomex + vifa xt25 any ideas.

    DIY Speakers
    I have never built speakers before, and my mom wants speakers for her birthday present. I will try bookshelf speakers first, but may attempt a tower if the bookshelf goes well. The peerless nomex and vifa xt25 seem to be a decent match, but I haven't seen a lot of builds with this combination...
  9. Looking for Peerless 850122

    DIY Speakers
    I have two pair of these 6.5" woofers and one is now breaking up at low volume. I cannot find any physical damage on the unit but it's old and the suspension is getting soft, so the coil may be dragging(?). I love these drivers but I believe I remember reading that they were out of production...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    my first DIY was a sealed peerless 830452 in 1cf. i have sense acquired a sdx15 which is going into 5.5 cf tuned to 20hz so the peerless will be somewhat obsolete. i have another ten in my second zone so it isnt really needed anywhere else in the house. i was wondering what i could do for the...

    Hi all, After seeing the amazing builds on this site, I knew it was the forum to join for an aspiring DIYer like myself.

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I originally posted this over at AVS (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1161766). This was my first attempt at a DIY sub. I have been looking at the M&K subs for a long time now but as I'm still in college I don't have that much money to blow on a sub so I chose to go the DIY...

    Has anyone ever used these peerless p830856 drivers from parts express? I cant find much info on them, other than the 2 reviews on the P.E. website. Unfortunately they are "no longer available", I dont know if this permanent, seeing as they have been on buyout for some time and have sold out a...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am a newbie and I am getting ready to build my first sub in about 15 years and I don't know much about either one of these companies. I was wondering if the Peerless 830500 XLS 12" Subwoofer or the Dayton RSS315HO-4 12" Reference HO Subwoofer would be better for a ported HT/Music Sub...
