Re: Orion XTR8MB

I couldn't find much; Orion is under different ownership than when the Extreme series woofers were manufactured. However, I found some T/S parameters embedded in the WinISD program; this will at least help you (or a shop) design a box for them. Impedance: 4 ohm Qts: .21 Vas: 11.3 liters or .399 cubic feet Fs: 68.5 Hz Xmax: .002 m Sensitivity: 97.3dB Power handling: 200 watts

I put a sub in my 2002 Altima but when I turn it up the bass cracks on the door speakers??? What do I do to get all the bass on the sub

Hi Ethan,

What you're looking for is called a "crossover". A crossover is an electronic filter for an audio or speaker circuit. In an audio circuit, a crossover is used to prevent or pass certain frequencies or a range of frequencies from passing through it. Since your sub will reproduce the bass or low frequencies, you don't want other speakers to reproduce them. A band pass filter on your door speakers will do this for you. A band pass filter passes only a range or "band" of frequencies and blocks those that are above and below the range or band of frequencies selected. Installing a band pass filter will prevent the very high & very low frequencies from getting to the door /dash speakers. Likewise, you should consider connecting a low pass filter to your subs, too. The low pass filters work a little differently from of the way band pass filters work - they only allow low frequencies to get to the sub - blocking all the other higher frequencies (your other speakers are better suited to reproduce those). Lastly, you would install a high pass filters on tweeters. Tweeters are designed to reproduce only the high frequencies - sending mid and low frequencies to them is wasting power and can cause damage to them.

You purchase the filters for specific crossover points (the block / unblocked point) as determined by the individual speakers. If a sub has a frequency response of 20Hz - 100Hz, a low pass filter of 100Hz would be ideal. Remaining filters would need to begin at 100Hz - assuming the mid-range speakers have a frequency response beginning at 100Hz. A band pass filter of 100Hz - 3KHz would fit the bill nicely if the mid-range speakers go up to 3Khz Match the high end of the band pass to the high end of the frequency response of the mid-range speakers. Next, a high pass filter at 3KHz would allow only the high frequencies to your tweeters. Basically, you want to have the entire audible range 20Hz - 20KHz covered by the speakers and have the crossover points that match the frequency response ranges of the speakers.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hi r these good speakers?

Power Handling (Peak) 300W , Power Handling (Continuous) 150W , Frequency Response 25Hz-22Khz , Crossover Slope @ 4.5Khz 24Db/Octave , Efficiency (1 Watt/1 Meter) 93 Db , Impedance 4 Ohm .

what this means is that the speakers are designed for a car stereo alone, NOT stock stereo as it wont have enough power. See the one 50w x 4 ,, yeah its designed for those. All and all its not a bad deal.

Would a Pyramid 15" subwoofer work for my Yamaha synthasiser?

Do yourself a favor do not get anything Pyramid they are cheap for a reason and you will not get good bass response from them even in a optimal enclosure.If you want nice bass for little money go with lanzar opti 1535D sub you can pick one up for around $265 and will blow away Pyramid any day.

    I have a 12 inch ORION HCCA dvc, 4ohm sub. My

    Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.

    In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.

    trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.

    As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.

    Hello georgesverme,

    I'd recommend starting with the local importer of Wharfdale products to see if they have exact replacement tweeters for sale. Contact:
    Bob Springston, Sound Import, LLC
    Phone: (508) 422-9788

    If you are unable to get tweeters from them, see if they will recommend a replacement or at the very least, provide you with the specifications, including the impedance, crossover point,frequency response, and power handling capability. If they won't or can't provide the information, then you are on you own. You'll want a relatively high-quality product, most likely 8ohm (but could be 16), crossover between 5-8KHz, frequency response from crossover to infinity (or at least beyond the range of human hearing).

    Then try They have a large selections of speaker building products and carry small tweeters like yours in several brands, price ranges, and quality levels. Vifa is excellent. Tang Band is good. Goldwood is acceptable for entry-level speakers.

    Hope this helps.

    I need to know the enclosure specs for the PSW615 alphasonik subwoofer... need volume for vented enclosure

    Hello chetdyal,

    For a ported enclosure with room for a port, you're going to need a box with about 3.0 CuFt internal volume. Using 3/4" material and outside dimensions, this translates into a box 25"(w)X18"(h)X15"(d) giving you 3.03 CuFt allowing a little volume for the sub and port displacement. For a tuned frequency of 38Hz, you'll need a rectangular port 2"X6" and 4.6" in length. A round or cylindrical port for the same tuning frequency would be 4" in diameter and 4.9" in length. Increasing the port length will lower the tuned frequency.

    There's excellent volume and port calculators on web site. I'd recommend that you browse some of the "box-building" information before you begin your build. The DIY Subwoofer site also has some great resources.

    Keep in mind that a ported enclosure will tend to produce the loudest bass notes very close to the tuned frequency. So tune it higher or lower according to the music you will be playing.

    Hope this helps.
