Been hearing some good things about paraflex bins and tops. 
Who else, apart from Sinai and Volcano, are running paraflex, in dub n reggae. I heard Volcano at NHC.

So forgetting about sims and plots, how does 1x21" paraflex, compare with a decent 21" Full Scoop,   32hz - 100hz !?

Wasn't there a post here on speakerplans from  a person that replaced  18" scoops with altcon 15" paraflex loaded with 15ds115 (yes, those exist, that's not a typo!!). He reported very good initial results.

Iirc it was user "noud", in a thread about a top build. 

EDIT: found it! 


Edit 2: scoop was apparently fane 18xb loaded.....

Goodevening Guys,

I Started building some new subwoofers to replace my scoops.
so I looked at a lot of different kind of subs like:
-th18 xoc1
-cyclops
-tham18
-tham 15
-Cubo sub
-21 br
and finally a paraflex Altcon 15

I wanted to be smaller go just as low or lower en just as loud. (if possibleBig smile)
so I started reading and reading and a bit more of reading.
until I finally decided to go with the Paraflex Alton 15.
the Hornresp sim so a similar output and range as the scoop.
so I de build begon and there are some result in the pictures.

Keep in mind the scoop is about 590Liters and the Alton 15 only 312Liters


Green=scoop 18XB
Purple=Altcon 15ds115

HPF=34hz
LPF=100hz

Not even comparable to a shutter ply 18" sb with minimal bracing. I wouldnt even use paraflex for pa let alone reggae. Definatly a design that shouldnt have left the work shop imo.

If I was going to move away from scoop based bass, I think I'd rather go bandpass style , kinda like what Kutty is putting out, rather than paraflex...

If you want to come over the Pennines with your boxes, you're welcome to A/B them against mine 

Got a warehouse space with 3 phase power where we can run it as loud as you want.

This offer goes for anyone.

I think I will build 18/21 double bandpass manifold boxes from the 18sound enclosure designs page - if I get bored of my mini scoops. I like their drivers too!

In my universe,  a 1x21 paraflex, would need to "Thanos"  a 1x21 Full Scoop, 32hz-90hz, to justify it's existence.

I have heard a 21" Paraflex a/b with 21" hog  , 21" flh and 21" tapped horn all run on same amp , just a listening test ,it was agreed by the 6 people present the paraflex was very impressive over the other cabs , will say it was noted it had a 4r driver but even so in all aspects it suprised us
