most people will take them apart to inspect/clean the motor assembly as they tend to develop some noise after prolonged use. I was only lucky enough to build a box for and install one in a customers car and I still remember being impressed with the output. We had to match it up with a 10" to cover bass above 50 hz but with a small amp on the clone and the 10" it pounded like all hell. The 4 cuft box between the two took up most of the trunk but watching my drill get launched off of the rear package tray when we first cranked it up is a memory I will never forget.

I came across a box that is built for 15's that 2.3 feet per chamber. All I have to do is change out the front panel in ordr to adapt the box for the cyclones. If the 4 feet is needed, I can cut out the partition between the chambers.

I have tried about everything in getting my cyclone unstuck. Does anyone that has cleaned one have any suggestions? I don't have a vice to use as suggested.

Yes, I used WD-40 and let it sit overnight. I could try adding more. I didn't want to use too much and ruin anything.

So I got the cyclone apart finally. The magnet is broken off in one spot. Does anyone know how much of the magnet can be missing and the sun still work.

I got both my cyclones apart and I'm afraid I'm gonna have to have one for parts and one that works. With my first one it has a chunk of the magnet broken off and on the second the "hot" wire is burned. Since one is probably gonna be junk anyway I may try to get it working and hope for the best. I can put the broken magnet back together and seal it so that it won't move or shake around and the burnt wire can be replaced. What's everyone's thoughts. I was really wanting to hear and feel both of these working.

Instead of using three different forum topics, I will start a new on about my journey servicing my cyclones. Please feel free to follow me on my journey making my clones come alive. I look forward to everyone's comments.
