I’m buying two identical 12" (car) subwoofer drivers from a friend, well, it’s just too good of a deal to refuse even though they’re “for cars”. These used to cost over 200$ a piece when new (now buying them both burnt-in for 150$) and they’re generally well regarded products.
Their power handling is around 1,2kW continuous and 3kW peak. Sensitivity 92dB, impedance is 2x 2ohm (dual voice coils). What are the cons of not wiring the coils in parallel? My experience of DVC subs is null.
I can’t possibly hope for an affordable plate amp that handles these in parallel, in parallel. So, for an isobaric sub, I’d need two ~500W amps, right?
For home use, I don’t think I need to even approach the power handling specs.
Thoughts? Is this just stupid?
Should I invest in actual dedicated purpose woofers and forget this project?
(I just want something to tinker with…)
(And to clarify, I want infrasonic response)
