Does anyone have pics or info on how you ran wire? i.e. from the back to the front and screw hardware to the side walls...lol

I know it should be self explanatory but rattle is what I'm concerned about and the logical way just seems so odd.

Just got in 4 Dayton PA465's and Excited

Thanks

Hmmm, drill and straight through instead of zig zag up and down.
Awesome.

Drill the hole as close to the cable diameter as you can and seal around it well with silicone. Else pressure will find a way (out)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the PA465 is not a good drive especially for a scoop.

Depends what your aim is for the project, really. If you want scoops no matter what and that's your only driver option, go for it but don't expect optimal performance. It's a reflex driver not a horn driver.

Phase 2: ?????
Phase 3: Profit!

Bet I got mixed up on what driver I picked... I started with the Omega Pro and the guy thats going to be running them wanted more Xmax and in looking through options.... I was thinking these listed themselves as scoop options but ,, nope. Oh well I will drop them in some reflex and sell them to him lol.

So what effect does having a high QES and QTS have.

QES - .62
QTS - .57

Long and short of it, quite a weak motor. Small magnet, low magnetic flux in the gap, not many wire turns in the gap, small voicecoil. You get the idea.
