its a COMP series. full name of it "KICKER COMP C12 4ohm subwoofer driver"There is a C series and a Comp series. Does your subwoofer have any markings that say C12 or Comp12?
unfortunately i cant put big box, i don't have much space in my room.im using 2 of them on a big ported box......they get loud for only being 150w rms.......im saving up for a bash 300W or 500W plate amp..
....thanks to MIKE P...for the enclosure help
yes, i see that kicker recemends box from 35 liters to 99.1 liter, box that i planed to but under my bed its a 49.9 liters ( designed in WinISD) but im not sure if its will be good if i put it under my bed.mine is 11cuft.tuned to 22hz..its over 200 lbs......then go for a small box......mike will help you.....
Is this measurement the external size of the box?18cm x 60cm x 65cm
1. no i cant place it in corner, i only have space between my beb and my MDF closet (in corner of room ), where is my left speaker are, i can place sub behind the speaker. this place is almost corner ( behind mdf closet are end of the room ( i can take photo of my room if you like )The Kicker recommendations for box size are for car audio use, in a house it is different. I will model this later today when I get home from work. Can you place the sub in a corner of the room?
Is this measurement the external size of the box?
ok, if all be good i will start the build after 3.10.0949 liters ported tuned to 24 hz would require a 4 inch diameter port 31 inches long. Modeling shows the box is too small for this sub and low end extension suffers. You may as well put the sub in a 49 liter sealed box.
ok, did a car amplifier will be good idea, if i power it up with dedicated computer power supply ? ( i have a 400watt Thermaltake PSU ).The usual connection is Kenwood LFE output - amplifier - subwoofer. I'm not sure if the SDPIF to Realtek will affect this or not. You will have to do some research.
the problem is that i live in Israel, and second one that i live i very small city ( about 30000 peoples only )find yourself a good plate amp that will deliver at least 150w [email protected] ohms...............
i found a bash 300w amp on craigslist for $60.00....i just got it today......... 300w rms @4 ohms..its like $150.00 it looks like it was never mounted on a enclosure cause it has 0 sratches....and the mounting holes are unmolested....
