    Going back to my issue with the drivers in electrical series, I can say there is absolutely no difference between them linked like that or parallel. All my tests and measurements showed me nothing changes, a small voltage difference is present, but only 1-2 V at 60 V sines.

    Second floor apartment? Really? When I have people ask about my subs and find out they’re in an apartment or connected condo, I tell them my subs come with eviction notices. Good luck with those and the fight to keep them. When I first turned on 3 sealed 18s for my wife, I said if that was too much vibration, we could put rubber feet under the couch. She looked at me and said, “you most certainly will not, that was awesome.” And I’m sure people ask why do you need a car as fast as a Bugatti. If you have to ask, you just don’t understand. Luckily, our subs are a heck of a lot less expensive for their capabilities than someone buying an exotic car.

    It’s not quite a sealed 24 but it might wreck something. Lol! I kid. Looking great so far.

    Reading through this thread has been really inspiring. I discovered new drivers that I would consider reference (IPAL and its brothers), and learned more about horn enclosures. It makes me want to attempt building a small horn loaded subwoofer for use with desktop speakers and the such, just for its high efficiency.

    Yep...I emailed Brian about the SP1-6000 plate amps a few weeks ago and he put me in contact with Justin. Brian says he still does consulting work for SP when needed but otherwise is retired.
