    So whats the difference between a 15 inch EV speaker and 15 inch sub?

    the frequencies i'm sure. I answered my own question.

    I have a 15 inch EV force speaker thats in a piano cab, 160watts rms, rated at 8 ohms, would it sound like crap put in a sub box and hooked up to me amp?





    looks pretty bomb proof...

    phooooh..... the speakers isn't likely to handle much excursion, and since the lowest frequencies produce much excursion I don't think it is a good idea using this speaker as a sub. Other thing is efficiency..... 3.3% meh???? That is really low, never seen anything like it even. And one last thing: the FS is 40Hz,which is pretty high, considering you normally double the FS on your tuning-frequency. In this case that would be 80Hz..... At the x-over point the sound of the speaker will be easily located and that's something you don't want in a sub. Last issue: We let most subs play from 50Hz or less..... That's not gonna happen, so you're letting it handle a too wide frequency-range.


    Conclusion? you can not use this speaker as a sub.
