 i just bought a 92 civic hatch back for an SPL project car i have been looking at the new MTX jackhammer .my ? is will the extra work  to make that sub work in a civic be worth it in the end  will it produce that much more SPL than say 3 15"  subs of high quality

Here's a link... it was discussed after it was seen at the CES this year...

Personally, a 6000 dollar, 320 pound woofer in a 2500 dollar 1100 pound car car seems a waste to me...

mtx now has a feature on there site that compares woofers. you can compare ie... 2 fifteens to one jackhammer.it gives you all the specs for each system.

The problem for us is we still can't even buy that sub yet ! We're placed on a wait list for them here in Canada. Has anyone even heard this beast yet ? I'd love to get a hold of this sub to show people but in the end, I don't think I can even sell one to any of my customer's because of the cost. Hey Blowntweeters, would you buy one if I had one in stock ?? posted_image

You could also try to stuff in a Bassault-R concert sub if you want to go this route.  It has 4-21" subs in it.  For either set up you will need to raise your roof up and upgrade your suspension to make this fit and your vehicle driveable.

Personally I would never buy any piece of equipment that I would have to redo my car's suspension. Also realistically what would the size of the box be and how much power would you need to power that beast? If I can find anyone that I know that still works at mtx I might run by and try to get a picture of it.

I saw them use the jackhammer on Pimp My Ride tonight...I watched just so I could see the sub....Gotta hand it to mtx for creating a Monster like that....

They had to build a Steel support system just to hold the thing in place...They were using a cherry picker to put it in the car...

I dont have the money but I would love to buy one just to play with it...Even if it sounded like Crap you know that you could do an install in a show vehicle with that and it would turn heads and get your shop some recognition...

Someone should wall up a panel van and use this sub. I bet that would sound badass then.

I was able to see one at the last car show I was at "Hot Import Nights"   It is frickin huge!   I know I will probably be able to see one in action in october, at USACi world Finals.   I have called Mitek for pricing, and they have told me that it is not in production quanity yet. All MTX distributers around my area (Midwest) have said that they dont even expect to see many of them hit the market.

Yeah, my Mitek saleman said that I'll be #260 on the list for Canada if I order one for the shop. He also said to get it to RMS watage you'll need to use 2 MTX 92001 amps ( strapped together ) just to get it to 6000 watts. That's only the RMS rating for the sub !!

Oh if i had money and time i would do it just to say i put that beast in a car. But good luck re-enforcing your suspension and building an sealed box with steel, then lifting the beast in. By the way this thing was designed for hummers and cars like that i serously doubt your honda engine could handle hauling all that steel and sub.

I will see what I can do about the T/S parameters. I personally have not seen a list of them or heard anyone talking about them at all. but I will talk to the engineer working on it and see if I can get them. the x-max is 2.5 inches

the meter that they put in the car was only able to read up to about 110dB. it was just a cheapy there for the effect. once it got over 110 it freaked out and jumped around.

Remember that it uses a very large diameter spider, so it probably can do the 60mm excursion claimed.  I would be interested in what the Le is as well (at a given Re).  However they could keep it down by using a 2 layer coil.

I saw Pimp My Ride tonight and saw this beast. Yeah, cheap SPL meter. But you know what this thing reminds me of? Back in the day, the Phoenix Gold Cyclone. Any of you remember that about 8 years ago? Maybe I'm just getting old. At the time, "Yeah, we're gonna produce it and sell it, but you gotta be on a waiting list." All SPL and no SQ like this thing. 120db at 10Hz? Yeah, it was awesome.

At the time, I had 4 12W1-8s wired in parallel (1 ohm) mono to a Phoenix Gold ZX350 (my Soundstream 500sx kept blowing up). It metered at 142dB all day from 35Hz to 50. And kick drums hit so hard it felt you were taking hooks from Mike Tyson.

Point is, SPL is not determined by xmax, low freq is not determined by Fs, SQ is not determined by Qts. It's a combination of all these things...and more.

I've got to disagree with you there.  The Cyclone was an SQ sub based on the Servodrive motor technology.  It was great at producing sub-bass frequencies cleanly.  However it didn't have much upper frequency bandwidth, which IMO would make it a poor sub to choose for SPL competitions.  The Jackhammer is just standard speaker technology scaled up.

Posted By: audiomechanic
Date Posted: August 09, 2005 at 7:29 AM
the jackhammer somes with 2 cone,voicecoil, and spider options that are field replaceable. one is a longer throw for normal listening and the other is stiffer and has a shorter throw for higher frequencies used in SPL.

I posted some pics of a prototype the box that will be available for it. look at the link in my sig.
https://homepage.mac.com/trevordobrygoski/PhotoAlbum8.html

I will try and get some more info on the sub today.

Posted By: soundmasta
Date Posted: August 09, 2005 at 7:54 AM
yeah, actually the cyclone was developed to be used like a subsonic freq. producer, like a "helper sub", in conjunction with a normal sut up. the idea was to reproduce every frequency, and that weird loking tube thingy did it. application-sq.

I opened a can of worms on this one I did.

Yeah, the cyclone was designed with sub freq reproduction in mind, and it did kick ass at that. But where did it really shine for that? 30Hz and lower. On the edge of audible sound. Not very useful for SQ in my opinion.




Posted By: Steven Kephart
Date Posted: August 10, 2005 at 3:33 AM

Well, what is the definition of SQ?  I would say the most faithful reproduction of the source material possible.  The Cyclone uses a motor that provides extremely linear BL over it's entire operating range.  This translates to a lot less distortion as compared to standard motor topologies.  Keep in mind that distortions produced by the motor are mostly harmonic in nature, mainly 3rd order (which is also the most unpleasant).  So if a driver was playing a 30 Hz tone at 120 dB with 10% THD (which is being generous), the harmonic distortion it produces would be at 90 Hz with an output of 110 dB which would be extremely audible.   Since the Cyclone doesn't suffer from this, I would say it is one heck of an SQ sub.  It just doesn't have quite the bandwidth that other subs have.  But it plays it's limited band of frequencies superbly. posted_image

160db???? in a coupe????    What mic system are you basing this off of?    If your doing 160db in a trunk car you need to start running at some shows because that would shatter some world records.   Who would have known...I thought the 149.9 db that we are doing in a trunk car was nice.       

And yes the vehicle is ranked #1 in HER class in the state and #9 in the US right now in USACi.    You canada boys need to start running at some USACi shows there are Canadian records on the USACi site and they need to be improved on!     www.soundoff.org

But when they come by and I ask if they want to put my Term-Lab Meter in there car, they either say no....or say ok, and then cant figure out why they just did a 132db when there friend with (2) Legacy 15's and a Pramyid 5000 Watt amp is doing 1465DB's in legal position and he ran at a show and won 1 MILLION DOLLARS!

Ok Im done for now

I have never seen PMR before... living under a rock, I guess... but after watching THAT, I don't think I *ever* WANT to see it. All I can say is: "There's 5 minutes of my life I'll NEVER get back"...

If I never click another link to a PMR webpage or PMR content, it'll be a week too soon, and God forgive me if I happen to land on the channel while it's playing...

"Lame, Lame, LAME!!!" >Syndrome, The Incredibles...

Also, 130dB... with 6kW of power?!?! What's wrong with THIS picture? I can get 130dB with one Eclipse Ti 12, and a third the power. And I still have a trunk, and back seats... In my CIVIC!!! I think this woofer is compensation for something... Using the trunk as an enclosure? How many OTHER things are wrong with this story? Alternator? Old style caps? Buick CENTURY!?! They just QUADRUPLED the value of the car, with the woofer alone! "Weak, man... Weak." >Cartman, South Park

I agree the show IS lame, but it is also one of MTVs highest rated shows and a lot of people love it. which makes it a great advertising tool. I have personally seen it hit in the high 140s with prototype parts and enclosures with less power than it needs.

but to be fair to West coast Customs, take a look at their website and some of the jobs that they do for customers and not for the show. they do a really great job. it may not be your personal taste, but the finish work is really good.

We just dont care down here in the US.    Espically the group of competitors I have been running with.     If you cant get the # you wanted, blow it all up trying!

And this we have done.    So far the year has taken its toll on 2 eclipses, 2 kicker xs100's, 3 kicker L7's and a head unit.   

No one siad this would be a cheap sport to get into, and next year I will finially be running for myself...To many questions asking why I dont run and just help build everyone elses stuff haha.    

Well it is time to Tell everyone to build thier owe SPL cars between shows, Im gonna go and work on my own.

It should be interesting, there are some plans in motion already that include 8 amps, 4 subs, about a dozen batterys, and a small car.       should be interesting

Here's some of the things I have had my hand in... Both electrical and cabinetry... The design of the TL subwoofer (and this is one of TWO in that living room) started as my idea... This one was built by the two of us in his driveway, at 10:00 at night! It wouldn't FIT in the workshop! *THAT'S* a big cabinet! It's about 7 feet tall, 2 feet wide, and 4 feet deep - that's 56 CUBIC FEET! - it weighs about 300 pounds, and there are two of them! We feed them with an Adcom GFA-565. EACH! Resonant Frequency? A subterranean 11Hz! (13.5Hz for the other one - it's a little smaller posted_image) Verified!

Jeff, I think the one you might be thinking of is possibly the Parasound GMAS - Grand Mother of all Subwoofers. I heard it at the CES about 8 years ago... That one sure didn't last long.

There was also an Orca (now defunct, I believe) 36 inch woofer... Saw one, touched it, wanted it... Couldn't have it posted_image It was at CircleSound in LA.

If I remember correctly, It had PERFECT specs for a TL, and I think that's why we discovered it... It was tripped across in our driver search.

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

We can put a 48" cone on our Parthenon if we wanted to.  That's a 68" cone using Kickers way of rating square cone's (diagonal). posted_image   And that's with 6" of peak to peak linear excursion as well, or more if you wanted it.

I heard the retail price on one of these would be like $5000. I just drool when I think about the amazing ENTIRE SYSTEM i could build for 5 grand.

Speaking of huge subs, a shop near me has the audiobahn 34" on display. it makes the front of the shop shake, the lowest bass ive ever heard, but pretty much usless for reproducing and actual music.
