PD1850 mini scoop or not!? was created by Zion
Hi all,
Need some advise, might sound crazy but would like to have this..
I currently have just had one of my pd1850’s reconed by Roy from RMJ and it looks brilliant and was thinking i would like to make a small low hertz dropping scoop for my living room! Yes i said it! :cheer: Living room! :woohoo: i mainly listen to Roots / Reggae and was thinking of making the Mini Scoop 18. What do you guys recon, i have a nice Pevey amp to run it so won’t be a problem and will just use the sub out of my AV amp which are connected to my other speakers for the signal in to the Pevey. But im highly confused on what enclosure i should make would like to keep it small and place in corner of living room, bare in mind my living room is rather big at 4.5 meters wide and 13 meters long so fairly big.
Any suggestions on small smart looking enclosure would be brilliant!
still think the mini scoop 18 looks cute!

Look forward to your replies.
Thanks,
Andy.

I'm afraid if you want a scoop to play REALLY low it is going to be the size of a fridge, especially if your only going to make one.

Well the sane choice might be a reflex, but if you can accept the size of a mini scoop then I am pretty sure that Stiper's MS18 MKII loaded with PD1850 and placed in a corner will drop low enough :)

Incorrect.

1x Shortman mini scoop (is commercial UK design) will do 32hz with PD1850, no sweat.

Personally seen it many times during testing.

Unfortunately the freely available designs, do not perform as well with PD1850 as the shortman.

X1 sub performs well with PD1850, or other possibility is to sell PD1850, and buy used Fane 1000 or Void V18-1000.

These will work well with Rhino MK2/MS-18MK2.

I didn't bother mentioning the shortman mini because I knew the plans are not available. :whistle:

But it proves, a mini scoop can be designed to both drop low, and loud, and throw.

I had 2x Rhinos built from modified MK2 plans, and they where very decent, just not quite shortman SPL.

If I knew then, what I know now, would have gone straight to 21" version, and be killing places.
