We’re all in this together! His neighbor has a horse. Ported enclosure systems are much more sensitive to misaligned parameters than sealed enclosure systems, which makes their construction more difficult for the beginning DIYer. From the plot you can see that the actual box tuning with the stuffing and lined walls is about 27Hz.

So let’s try changing the size of the vent to bring the resonance frequency back down again.


BassBox suggests these be in a ported enclosure. Mach5audio MAW10 Yeah, its difficult to judge though, since in car response may show differently. Ok, so you achieved sealed-like sound quality in a sealed config Last edited by BuddahX; at Mach5audio Suwboofer I am running 3, in a common chamber 1.

Prior to installing the driver, fiberglass insulation is subwoofet loosely in the box to provide additional damping Photograph Fiberglass Insulation for Damping.

The change in the response curve is caused by reflections within the box. To fill in the bottom end of my Sealed Bipole with Fostex FEEI decided to design and build a small subwoofer which would mate up with these fantastic sounding fullrange speakers.

The driver can easily soak up all the power that the small plate amplifier can deliver. F3 is still 50Hz, but you can get down to 30Hz with only a -6dB drop till it plummets lower than that. They are just too cavernous.
