HWK 15 Question.
11/02/12 at 15:13:12
 
Hello Gentleman,

  I started my quest for the HWK15 about 3 months ago after i won and auction on eBay for a pair of the Dayton series II woofers. In my search for an enclosure design for these i stumbled upon a post on a forum relating to the HWK i was immediately interested bought the plans and built my version. I'm running the true Iso alignment but i have made some modifications. I had a PSP 6" Aero port left over from my days in competition car audio so i used that in substitution of the coffee can method Smiley.  I also added a Dayton 250w plate amp to the rear panel opposite of the port. I know it will shrink the volume but the difference was minimal.  Here in lies a problem. During some very low bass notes i get a loud pop from the front sub (in the 6") port section. Obviously the sub is bottoming out and even though im feeding them quite a bit less power than there rated for. Any ideas from the more seasoned vets of the HWK 15 as to what could be causing this issue?

Don't get me wrong the Dayton Series II are excellent woofer but are limited to about 8mm xmax and if the plate has a bass boost built in, it will cause the woofers to bottom out. If you could step up to a sub that has about 12mm/15mm xmax you should be able to cure this problem and it play a little lower. You could try a shorter port but I doubt that will cure the problem. Changing the align might make a difference but I am not sure it will solve anything either. The best thing about the HWK is all the experiments you can try. If you need more info let me know.

Is there a cost effective sub you would recommend?

Cost effective is whatever the budget can stand. Here is a list to start :

1 HO for big power and low booms

1 HF for average power but excellent bass

It all depends on the budget and how low or loud you want to go...
