Hey guys. I had an idea for a friend. A small 6.5 inch high xmax subwoofer. I had seen the anarchy tapped horn sub with a tang band in it. Is there a better setup for non equalized subwoofer with only a x over set to say 100-90Hz. Planing on only using a 12 volt 700+ cca battery used to power a car amp pushing 100w rms. Looking for high output and low power consumption. Thanks!

You will need eq but if you just want loud and efficient any of the horn designs would be good. The anarchy is a great option and so are other small sub builds such as the T-6 which uses am 8" or 10" woofer. How small do you want the enclosure?

I would like to keep it as small as possible. Its for portable sound system that my buddy has. Its got 2- 5 1/4 coax speakers and a 200heart watt clarion amp in a box. It sounds ok but its lacking lows. Keep in mind that this will probably be riding in the back of a truck. The horn style would be good because of only one opening. Bandpass would be a good option as far as one port. I was looking for a subwoofer that was around 50-10012 watts.

The Tang-Band is a little monster -- I have used them before; great little drivers at a bargain price.

As an asides I am working on a meaty 6.5" subwoofer right now as well -- we will have a 2" coil (1.37" winding length) so it's thermally beastly... we ran a 300 RMS 12-hour test on it no problem :) If you are interested in it I expect it to be out by the end of the year and you can pick up more information over here :

Linear x-max should be 15-16mm on it based on FEA simulations with ~20mm of mechanical clearance one-way (relatively soft limit with the cone touching the spider -- coil will not bottom).
