WO with 15s....

Can someone give me some dimensions on how to do a WO with 15's?  Like how tall should it be  if it's 36 inches wide and 36 inches deep??

2 inches taller than the subs, your going to have to angle the baffle alot though.

You would have to angle the baffle to make it wider, to accomodate your 15", remember you can't just make the depth larger than 13.5" and be done with it.

All of the WO's with the standard 36" width have a baffle thats about 11.5" wide when positioned in the middle. Angle it and you can change that to 15", but that would be a BIG angle!

Cheers, Mike

Yup, 17" high and angle the baffle. It should work, but alot of angle will be needed.

You're right about the extreme angle.  In fact the angle is so extreme that it won't work unless you also make the horn a little narrower.  That will give you a little more room to work with.  If you just leave it, the angle gets so extreme that the drivers will bottom out and won't fit.  I know I've said before that I will take pics of mine, but this time I mean it.

Here's the pics of the WO 15.  The baffles are somewhat removable at this point due to the fact that you can't get the speakers mounted with them in place.  I still need to come up with a good way of mounting the baffles and keep the ability to remove them.

sweet Cheesy
question,

what moves more air or is louder?

2x 10 inchers long excursion 500wrms each

or

2 x 15 inchers regular excursion 250 wrms each?

my point is if we want louder / more bass why not just use more powerful 10s' and a bigger amp?

why mod the box to suit 15s? Undecided

Your two examples may be on par with eachother, then again may not, there are alot of factors to think about.

Why do people go for 15's though? Simply to hit lower frequencies and/or have more usable bass in those ranges. Why is this possible? It's just down to 15's having a substantially larger cone area than 10's or 12's.

Cheers, Mike

but the driver regarless what size moves backwards and forwards at the speed the amp/signal dictates,so if a smaller driver is moveing farther then doesnt it move as much air?

Well, which would be louder would depend on the efficiency of your drivers. Grin
