Peavey 18" Low Rider Subwoofer Speaker
Work in sealed box?
I have several road ready 4 cubic ft sealed custom enclosures and what to upgrade to 18" drivers. I am running a crown 1000 watt amp. I want as much loud and low bass as possible. My amp has a subharmonic synthesizer built in and digital EQ.
4 cubic feet is almost exactly what they need sealed, and should provide as flat of a response as can be expected out of this driver. The exact volume they need sealed for flat response is 4.29 cubic feet. if you want it to give you more on the low end, add up to 4 pounds of Acousta-Stuf to each enclosure. At 4 pounds, the driver will play as if it was in (roughly) a 30% larger enclosure.

I have 2 of these drivers I ordered from you and two 24wx26hx20d cabs but I am unsure of the size, amount and depth of ports needed to tune to 50/60Hz?
In a cab that size you will need four 4" diameter ports that are 4.5" long for a 50 Hz tune. I would recommend a lower tune, something like 35 Hz. This would require the vents to be 12" long each.

Good Replacement Sub for EV FRI-181s Sub Cabinet?
I understand it is best to build a cabinet to spec for the sub, but my budget will not allow me to replace sub and cabinet. I have two EV 18" sub cabinets that have blown, I reconed one but am not happy with it. I would love to put this peavey in the cabinet if it will work. I am not sure, but i believe the EV cabinet is around 8.0 cu ft and tuned to around 36 Hz. Any help will be appreciated.
Yes this will work in that cabinet.
