Indeed biggrin.gif
I was also thinking for awhile about electromagnets, with a car battery as a power supply, but i figured id prolly end up in a hospital...rolleyes.gif
If this turns out more fun then i thought, ill see if i can get some neodymiums on ebay.

Uh, transformers don't have magnets in them. They have 2 electromagnets, but no permanent magnets. Unless you meant pump motor?

Also, you'll probably need an actual amplifier to drive 4.5ohm- the headphone jack on your interface will probably collapse too much with that load to do anything.

But you were probably going to need an amplifier anyway.

Ah yes yes motor. Because i disasembled some transformers that day it got messed in my head with the pump motor.

Pic related.


Also, if i try to up the resistance to 20ohms per coil, it would give me about 6.6ohms total.
Would that drive better or worse?

Edit: my brother used to run his 16ohm speakers trough this, if thats relevant info at all

Bumping thread with progress i made 2 days ago, this would be finished if someone could tell me if 6ohms is easier to drive then 4 or is it vice versa
I do not know this because i am an idiot.
Sorry for doublepost.




Cut down to size, halfway from height of speakers to allow for maximum cone movement before hitting something (if it moves at all that is)

Also look what just got in the mail 10 minutes ago. Warning: Offtopic (Click to show)

Ordered FF6, got kart extra.


Works.

Anyways, still waiting on that question.
Please help.

Just to clarify what I said in the PM, 6 ohms is going to be far better than 4. I still think you will need an amp. No harm in trying without one, though.
