Just received the dsp in the mail today so I'm on it.Must be hard to get you out of the car some days.
Ok Tarpon - get to it!
Over my head I will admit, but I do know when something sounds good to me!Yea I do tend to sit a little longer and enjoy it. Still might tweak the amp a little. Reverse the phase.. try a filter slope. The amp has 12 24 hz slope. I don’t think crossover will change it any. I think I have it on 80 now. Maybe 60.
I made a similar enclosure by gluing rings of mdf. I used a Stereo integrity MKIV shallow mount 12. It requires .5 cubic ft of space. I’ll post pics when I get home. It sounded very good but blew the sub and they released the MkV but it needs more space.Been working the subwoofer spare tire solution and settled on making my own. Haven't installed it yet so I can't offer results at this time. The enclosure is comprised of (12)-high quality 3/4"wood panels glued and screwed then bonded in a special weatherizing penetrating sealant and then covered in God-awful Flexicoat. The connectors are from SMD. Same size as the spare tire and will line the well with DynaMat and rock the bottom end.

Keeping in mind a non-moving car with windows up is very forgiving in that you have a sealed environment where you can add and take away with equalization easily but once you open the windows and start moving all bets are off and you can't possibly expect things to sound so great that's why people add tonnes of power attempting to overcome the deficiencies ...so perfection isn't an option and what you end up with is subjective anyway - as long as it sounds good to you!My sealed enclosure is way undersized for my sub. Probably half of what it should be. I used an accoustafil polyester to help negate that some but I am sure the sun has much more potential if properly spec’d. But it is one of those things were you can’t win them all. And for what it is I think it sounds good. Probably not quite extending the lower frequencies as well but that’s ok.
