  2. Alternate driver for the MFW-15? Tempest-X works well but is overkill!

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hey guys :) Just curious if any experts here have any recommendations for an alternate driver for the MFW-15! It's been found by many, that the stock driver for this fine sub will bottom out way too easily, thus needing to keep the gain lower than desired and thus having not the desired...
  3. Front slot ported (front), Tempest-X opposed push - push (sides) sub?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    For my down stairs area I'm contemplating building a sub myself, scary thought I know. I'm wanting to create a sub that I can place a TV on top of so minimising vibrations is a consideration. Something like the Seaton Submersive with its opposed 15" drivers would do the trick. But... to...
  4. Gen I tempest-x slotted port build

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Will the EZ slotted port design build work for the Gen I tempest-x? If not, will something similar work, b/c I really like the ease and dimensions of that build. It will be powered by an EP1500. Thanks for any input!

  7. FS: Two 15" Exodus Tempest-X Subwoofers - $200/e

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    SOLD SOLD SOLD - both have been sold Awhile back, I bought four Exodus Audio Tempest-X gen1 subwoofers. I'd planned on all four in 12 cu.ft each vented enclosures tuned to 16hz. But after I built two, I realized that was actually more than enough! So I have two that are barely used (tested...
  8. Tempest-X as midbass module?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've got a pair of Tempest-X that are unused, because the other pair have excelled so well in their 24 cu.ft. enclosure tuned to 16hz that I just haven't needed all four. So I'm thinking about turning the unused pair into midbass modules. I have the ported pair low passed at 40hz. So these...
  9. Tempest-X (orig., NOT the X2) with EX-18 radiator

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hullo, I have a Tempest-X driver that I was going to put in a 150 L sealed box. However, despite sealed having less group delay, etc. leading to "best" sound quality, a ported/passive radiator would result in vastly reduced excursion, with a corresponding result in vastly reduced distortion...
  10. Tempest-X Subwoofers - four each for sale

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    EDIT: THESE ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE - I DECIDED TO KEEP THEM I have four Exodus Audio Tempest-X 15" subwoofers for sale. Probably one of the best 15's ever created. Two are new in the box (never used) for $188 each. Two are lightly used in excellent, new looking condition for $160 each...
  11. Tempest-X Thiel/Small Parameters

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    The Tempest-X has been missing from the web site for a long time (likely due to it's current lack of availability). However, I would really like to simulate one. If anybody has the T/S params for this woofer, I would appreciate if they would post them. Thanks in advance. Mike
  12. Having trouble modeling Tempest-X LLT --> Keep exceeding excursion??

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Guys, I am still learning WinISD. I recently discovered the Excursion tab and I'm trying to model a Tempest-X "LLT" enclosure using it. But whenever I go larger & lower than DIYcable's recommended 12 cu.ft. 16hz enclosure, I start to exceed Xmax. My goal is an enclosure that has low decay...
  13. Building two subs, how?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi, I've two Tempest-X, DCX2496 and an EP2500 at my disposal. I have no idea if I'm going sealed or ported. Many people say "just build two sealed boxes, 8^3 each". I don't know. First, they'll be huge. Second, if I go ported, I'll get more output. I can add a subsonic (highpass) filter with the...
