OK first off, just so ya’ll know I am serious. Today I went out and bought everything except for the wood and the drivers.

The reason I didn’t get the wood was because LOWES does not stock. 1” MDF or Particle Board. This brings up a new question: which one would be best to use MDF or Particle Board? I plan on laminating the entire cabinet in 1/4 “ red oak plywood, so the finish has no bearing to me.

Question #2 as I have posted before I planed on using the Dayton Titanic Series Subwoofers. I have been doing some research and reading as much of your old posts as I can. One thing I don’t see is a lot of people who used the PEAVY BLACK WIDOWS, specifically the PEAVY 1505 DT – 4 or 8 the last number representing the ohms load of each driver. There are several speakers in the Black Widow Line but these are by far the ones with the lowest response. Also they are Kevlar mixed cones, and power rated the highest. The rest of the specs can be found in this PDF.:

Plus it solves the Ohms, problem of two 4 ohm drivers.

In my calculations the DATONS being a 4 ohm speaker if:

If (4) were used, two drivers would need to be put in series, and the two sets of series drivers would be put in parallel, giving you a 4 ohm load over four drivers. This is optimal but very expensive another $400.00 in drivers.

If (2) were used the two 4 ohm drivers in parallel would give you an ohms load of 2 ohms. This is too close to the edge for me. My amp could release the magic smoke before you knew there was a problem

If (2) were used in Series of course you would have an 8 ohm load. As this is very safe, you are wasting a little less than half the amps power.

Now here is the key, if I use (2) of the BLACK WIDOW drivers at 8 ohms each. In parallel I would have a 4 ohm load.

Plus if I decided to go with four drivers I can get the 4 ohm models and save $240 on cost of four.

I have checked my calculations and was wondering, what you gurus think of the Black Widows???

Thanks,
