Hi, what was the spray used after ca glue....?

How do you work out the wattage?
James Mason

So how can you work out how much power you can feed it?
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 3 days ago
@James Mason that will all be dependent on the coil used and the motor design. Both are just as important.

@EMF Audio ooh that's interesting, what's the usual thermal limit?
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 3 days ago
Thermally, I test to get a rating if there isn't established data. Mechanically will depend on the enclosure.

I have a question, since the magnet is bigger diameter than the sub, how do you mount it in a box?
uno efx
uno efx 7 days ago
@EMF Audio ok, got it that time, the trim ring on the surround didn't look as though it would be good for an inverted mount so I was thinking a 2 piece ring but in all my years never saw one used. We have made rings to run smaller subs boxes with bigger holes already cut but the rings were one piece. I love your description of it " that is not a ME issue" haha

Where and how much for a kit like this? I rebuilt my 12W7 and it was kinda fun.. I used Gorilla glue clear on top of my CA glue and it had a rubber like texture to it and sealed the spider nicely. I am surprised u didn't have to use strips on the outside of the coil..? !2w7 wasn't having it without it.. But they say the W7 is the hardest sub to rebuild.. not as much room in the motor of a W7 either. Whats the RMS on that sub 2000watts?
Jerred Calwell
Jerred Calwell 4 days ago
@EMF Audio Yeah iono.. But I do know the space on the motor slot was very minimal on the w7 so it didn't take much to space it out.
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 5 days ago
@Jerred Calwell If it was over 60% around it should space the same as completely.
Jerred Calwell

perhaps the once over roll project paper not completely wrapped around more than once offset the vc? on the one side...
EMF Audio

@Jerred Calwell I'm positive the inner shim was not correct because there isn't such a thing as an outer shim, because the shim on the pole is the only one needed when it's correct.
Jerred Calwell
Jerred Calwell 5 days ago
@EMF Audio maybe my inner shim wasn't thick enough? but after added the outer shims no issues..

Awesome video and sub! An emf 10 like this would be sweet, anyway my question is......using your chosen method, is there any concerns of debris from cutting the former getting in the gap? And how easy would it be to get it out?.. Love your vids and your products (always wanted an ermagerd of any size as the build quality looked insane compared to the rival brands but being in the UK it would have been crazy expensive I bet!) Keep up the good work!!!
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 10 days ago
Generally speaking, you would cut the former NOT while assembled, so you wouldn't have any issues with anything in the gap. But let's say you forgot to check clearance after it was glued in so you had to, you would want to put tape on the inside of the former to cover the pole and gap.

No choice but to invert it. The magnet is wider than the cone.
Bit Rage

fo you have to cut the cone? cant you just glue the 4" coil to the 3" cone, as long as its centered? like cant the coil just be cut shorter so cone sits right on top?
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 15 days ago
That wouldn't provide a good enough bond and the leads also have to connect somewhere, under the cap is best. If it wasn't cut you'd have to put holes in it for that anyway.

That may be possible if the saw was precise to the size needed and a jig was setup to be perfectly centered.

Perfect, sub for compound mounted isoberric bandpass puah pull in a quad clamshell mounted box Thats 2 sub's in a push pull face to face. Each side with a 3 chamber box. Very complex box. Super tight deep bass and will move tons of air.

Where was the glue between the motor, spacer,and basket? If any one part shifts it could scrape the vc and short out to the basket and damage the amp. This doesn't take into account a assembly that's not inline centered but built at an angle because of dirt between layers. If you seriously think about it speakers should be built in a clean room.
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 25 days ago
No need for glue between the motor, spacer, and basket. As a matter of fact, I absolutely hate it when that's done. If you torque bolts correctly it's unnecessary. There isn't dirt between the layers, it doesn't take a clean room to not have dirt between layers. Nobody is building subs in a sand box. Hundreds and hundreds of subs have been built on that bench without issue. Also, if the dirt was there and secured in place, because it's built on shims, any angle would be consistent across the spiders and cone so the coil would still go up and down straight unless it was an extreme angle, which you'd visually see.

You can also get 7 stitches when it breaks. Not sure what you're referring to with poor soldering skills.

@EMF Audio what's the power handling for that 10"?
EMF Audio

A new one would cost more because there are ferrite motors available, but you can basically take the price of the 12" and that's what I'd build the 10" for.

This is awesome. This 10 has GPT to SLAM with some decent power going to it. This almost reminds me of a scaled up version of the B2 6" sub. Awesome work my man!

These things are probably jackhammers... My only issue would be the magnets being wider than the driver. If you want to invert the subs, which you probably do with those fucking magnets on them, then sure. No problem at all.

@EMF Audio I'm factory trained by BASF and PPG on coating pretty much every substrate on the planet. Proper surface prep for maximum adhesion is the foundation of every job. Not saying it is that critical for what you're doing in this application, but decent abrasives are worth their weight in gold for a reliable properly prepped surface and finished product.

Matt Cangie Month ago
the left over tube at the top you didn't cut off due to cutting angle doesn't effect appearance in the end but it will effect its overall Qts factor which will change its frequency response performance in a relative volume enclosure. So: if you're planning to install two or more of these, match the moving mass weight/volume so their response is even. ...If I was the customer, I'd tell you to grab a Dremel and grind that excess crap off. I'm not so I won't..
EMF Audio
EMF Audio Month ago
No, it won't. If both of them are done the same way it doesn't matter. Even if they were done differently, the amount of mass difference is less than if I used more glue on one sub than another, which won't effect the Qts either. 2 grams difference when it's 400 grams won't change anything.

Hi Need help I have an old pioneer 12 tsw 3000w and need a recone kit any idea if you can hlep
EMF Audio
EMF Audio Month ago
@octy mocty I'd put a Lowballer 12 against that sub without a question, those are $199. A recone would cost you at least $175 and you'd have to ship it both directions too. I think those things were under $250 brand new.

If you've been in audio since the invention of them, it's never been called a chassis. In some instances it's called a frame, that's cultural differences.

Easier yes, but having a ring made to build 2 speakers isn't practical. These are the only two 10's I've built with that basket, which is different than every other 10" basket.

When you put the 3 ring on there, werent you supposed to spray it with the hardener spray before setting it in place and then going over it again?
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 2 months ago
It isn't hardener, it's accelerator. It will still dry without it and it's not going anywhere in that spot so it will bond fine. It will just take hours instead of instantly.

46 grit is a bit low, the glue will stick better to a 1200 grit scuff, same goes with paint Edit- scuffing its better to use scotch brite anyways Another edit- no this does not mean go get scotch brite at walmart you have to buy scotch brite from an hardware store so you get scotch brite made to scuff not to clean

@EMF Audio thank you for the information i will remember that if i ever have to recone one of my speakers
EMF Audio
EMF Audio 2 months ago
The viscosity of the glue is really thick, a high grit paper is still too smooth for it. Paint is very very different than the glue. Even when I grind off a surround (because after using the 46-60 grit I've never had one come off) I use a 60 grit or lower to do so and it gives a clean texture to bond to.
