Even if you say 'very very small' for the enclosure, it seems quite heavy from the pics. Could you give the details of the material used in constructing the enclosure?

Also, this is the first time I am seeing Noise Kill damping inside the enclosure. Is this a standard practice in making boxes?

Hi !

By my standard; this is a very very light sub.
There is No Box in Box construction.
There is no double wall.
There is no Concrete.
There is no Ceramic Lining.

Besides it is a .65 cft box [i.d.]
That is God Damn small. But that is what I need for 2 woffers from Illuson Audio - ND 12 if they are in an isobarik sealed enclosure.

Now, I still have 50 % of my boot space for a small swimming bag to fit !!! Just kiddin.

The material in this case is just MDF or HDF board.
No elaborate material was used.

Just put the box on the scale;
18.32 kgs without carpet.
That is still to be done.
The Sub should be complete by tom. Will be installed by then. I hope.....

Sir,

No one puts noise kill / damping on the doors & the boot, where it is needed the most.
The question of puting it in the sub enclosure does not arrise.

I like to use it. Have been doing it for many many years now.

I also fill the box - more often than not. But not in this case.

My Noise Kill - Deadning material account got closed. I used and installed 168 sq. ft. of Noise Kill in the Swift. This was for all 4 doors + boot + sub enclosure + A & B pillars etc.

Why did you leave out the roof of the swift? Any reasons or was it not required? Wont that ring? I am asking but I must admit that ICE means solidified water to me!

The roof of the car does not ring / sing.

If, I did find the roof of the car to be resonating, trust me, I would have put the noise kill there too. However, it is not in direct contact with any speaker / woffer. Hence, if it vibrates, it is minimal & cannot be heard. Therefore no noise kill on it....



Thank you sir....

You are from Mumbai, do drop by for a listen.
The install should be complete this evening.
Just have the sub to be installed & rear tweeter position fixed and installed.
Some covers & carpets have to be sorted.
The car will be back on the road by tom. 1 full week went in.

I seem to be satistied with the out come. I do hope the sub enclosure performs well. That is the only variable, I am scared of.........

God has been kind, I am sure all will go smoothly....

cheers:

it looks like a 9 pin connector
mostly used in audio connections, makes it easy to detach the sub and take out if required and as far as i know the 9 pin usage leads to better SQ
