Hey Ruckus, saw your car at the stands in Brighton & it was looking as good as always. I noticed you have now got a RF processor below the switch panel, is that a new addition?

I didn't even know there was a sound off at Crystal Palace? Where was it set up? I would have entered my car if I'd known where it was as I've doubled the power to the sub & fronts now so would like to know what it's pushing. I got 125.6dB from a single 10" last year at the SMD, so am interested to see what it is now.

Hi Mr Ruckus,

Cheers

Tim.

Found it... On here! LOL

When the enclosure was moved across to the new mini it was changed a little.

The original panel was cut out to leave a 60mm ‘Frame’ and a new front panel made from 18mm MDF was put over it.
This was also routed on the face out so the sub sits a little counter sunk.

I needed to add a little capacity to the enclosure and beef up the panel as the new Seas sub is heavier and it running with a lot more power than the original RF Audiophile sub.

pretty much... im not a very serious person as is and i thought you's lot had a sence of humour...

.. i was sadly mistaken!

i have not at any point in your thread said anything nasty to anyone.. nore been rude.. nore have i started an arguement with any one..

some one thought your dog bowl idea was a little "left field" and you replied to them.. i make one little joke about it and IM THE BAD GUY!..

... its joking around.. having fun in what you do that makes it all the more fun!, it makes people think up stupid things.. makes them come up with wacky ideas!

.. lighten up.. if it wasnt for silly ideas you would never had come up with the bowl idea


... see theirs some-one with a sence of humour bursting to get out of you, let him out to play some time.

peace and love folks!
