C15.1 15" available - similar to old AV15

Postby stryke » Tue Oct 23, 2007 5:37 pm

Hi Everyone,

We have some closeout C15.1 available. These are quite similar to the older AV15's we used to sell. They use the same 2" coil, cone, etc. They are dual 2ohm coil. Parameters are slightly different, but they still model close. In any case, they are a nice 15" driver with 23mm Xmax for $125 each. Yes, you heard that right, $125. :)

Here are the parameters and a picture:

C15.1 15" alum cone woofer

Quantity Available: *** 1 Left ***

Fs: 22Hz
Qts: .46
Qms: 9
Qes: .48
Re: 2.9ohm
Bl: 16.75Tm
Z: 4ohm
Le: 3.3mH
Vas: 130L
Mms: 340g
Cms: .154mm/N
Sd: 771sqcm
Xmax: 23mm
Vd: 3.54L


With these a 2.2cubic foot sealed enclosure stuffed nicely gives a Qtc of .7 with 35Hz F3. Vented enclosures could range from 2.5cf tuned to 35hz for maximum output in a car, all the way to an 8 cubic foot EBS enclosure tuned to 18hz.

Give us a call 920-469-9198 to place an order. At $125 each these will not last long.

John

haha oops. Yeah, Mms is in grams not liters. You can throw from 500-800W to these without any issues.

hmm...well I'm really excited about these. Because I've been waiting for something to buy from you for awhile. To bad it came in a tight budget squeeze,lol But i'm working my way around.
As you know...I had that 18" BL i purched from fi a ways back in a haste for the SPL comp. Question is though...i'm looking to replace it with 2 15's from ya and these just happened to pop up. Questions about the pluses and minuses. Lemme give you the details and maybe you can give me some comparisons.
Set-up: 1200 watts @ 1 or 2 ohms, 5 cu ft to play with, honda accord trunked.
Currently:
18" BL in a 5 cu ft box tuned to 34Hz Firing upward. Sub up, ports back
This new set-up:
be 2 15's at 1200 watts in a 5 cu ft box tuned to ----Hz? rear firing with ports most likely back also.

What do you think?? I'm not sure what your experience is with the Fi Line-up

Hey there, all-

John, with 23mm electrical xmax... was wondering what kind of clearances/xmech these have.

thanks!

I don't have any direct experience with the Fi woofers. Looking at the Sd and Xmax you would move about 5L of air with the single 18" BL woofer. With the pair of these 15's you would move 7.1L at the 23mm Xmax. How loud you can play in a sealed box is directly related to how much air you move.

The formula is as follows in half space: SPL = 20 * Log (Vd * F^2) + 48.6

So say we pick 40hz and compare the two:

SPL = 20 * log(7.1 * 40^2) + 48.6 = 129.7dB for the pair of C15.1's

SPL= 20 * log (5 * 40^2)+48.6 = 126.66dB for the single 18"

This is of course only half space with no cabin gain included. Simply to compare the output of the two drivers directly. You can plug in any given frequency you wish to compare the two. This is also for a sealed enclosure only. As you get to a vented enclosure you have to take into account the air displaced by the port as well which gets more complicated. However, the driver capable of moving more air will also be more capable of exciting the port resonance in most cases, and the difference in overall output becomes larger between the two.

Again I don't have direct experience with the Fi woofer, but this is an objective comparison between the two, much like comparing the horsepower between two engines. Your vented box volume and power looks very acceptable for the pair of 15's also.

These have a physical clearance and suspension travel of about 29mm.

Going with one of these and a pair of 18" PR's in about 5 cubic foot can be a killer HT subwoofer. You can tune down to between 16-18hz and really get some good output on the bottom octave that way.

John,

I called on Wednesday regarding an order for the 15's. Your receptionist said you would call or e-mail me on Friday. Are there any left?

Hello,

Yes we have a few left now. We found out on friday morning that we are having some issue with email. She usually sends me a note over email when I need to call someone back. We found that internally on the aespeakers.com email it is taking sometimes hours for email to go from her to me and some isn't even getting there at all. A few weeks ago our hosting company's mail server went down. Since then it seems that many emails aren't getting through. I even went down from about 70 spam emails a day to only 20 or so. Which is good, but it seems the same percentage of important emails are disappearing also. Send me an email to john at aespeakers and I'll make sure to respond.

John

Hey there, I was just wondering if you have 2 of these subs left, and, if so, how much it would cost to be shipped to 44691?
