i added some more wood behind the sub and increased the height of the model to get to 15.07 ft^3 i originally didn't include the bracing and subs in the calculation and had to increase the height by 2in
the subs aren't the greatest but they have about 1inch of travel and were quite loud in the truck, hopefully it will work ok in the house.
i am going to buy a ep2500 or ep4000, is the 4000 worth the extra 100$? they look identical
that is called the tinsel wire. it is pretty hard to replace depending on how your subs have them integrated into it. it is the wire that connects the subwoofer's voice coil to the input terminals.
"I replace lead wire all the time, its not that difficlut to do. Tinsel lead is light gauge wire wound with fiberglass strands for streangth. The wires are set to certain leangth to prevent slapping against the cone or pulling out if to short. Using connector or soldering in jumper is a tempory solution. These wires take alot of vibration and any hard spots in the wire will break. Try finding a "blowen" speaker and steal its lead, if you cant find "new", your solution with 16g will work."
- found that online.
if you have any lighter gauge wire that is very flexible you can do it. just be careful.
