Ok, I got a Kicker Comp VR to spare, and I want some bump in my room...
What would be the best enclosure design?
Just ported?
I was thinking about something crazy, like horn enclosures, anything that will get the most out of this 8..
The frequency response is 30-500 Hz...
Any ideas???
Sorry, I'm a HT no0b...

I dont know anythgin about BLH enclosures but I'd imagine you'd be well off with a nice ported enclosure tuned low...

Bandpass maybe? An 8" isn't sufficient for a good HT system anyway. Look into at LEAST a 10", 12" is good and 15" is better.

Well, ****, i'll just do that...
I'll put the 8 in my brother's truck this weekend, and find something a little more suitable...
BTW, I really like those Bully 15's from parts express :up2somet: ...

An 8" will be just fine in your bedroom, unless your room's huge. If you would post your T/S parameters for your speaker I could recommend an enclosure for you.

Ohhh, it's a bedroom. Either way, step it up for a HT. Remember, there is no cabin gain in home audio and there's a good 10x more air that it needs to excite.

Good design, but def. not for HT......far too weak below 35hz or so

There is gain in a room it's just at a much lower frequency usually around 30hz. Once again dependent on room size.

No **** genius, the point was that whereas in a car an 8" might have some good bass due to cabin gain, you don't have that luxury in a large room inside a home.

The point of the PM was to be civil, JACKA$$. And like I said you can disagree w/ me all you want w/o being a sh1thead about it. But I'm done w/ this now so post away and dog me out all you want but at the end of the day everything you told this kid is still wrong and you obviously don't know much about home audio. I'm going back to my hole now.

I love it when the **** hits the fan...
Anywho, the sub is going in my bros truck...
So I'm getting a bigger one to go in my room. With extremely low extension...
That's all I know I want right now...
Something that will pound on low notes...
Any suggestions?

Since you like to put in your snide remarks on topics that don't pertain to you, I also invite you to explain to me how saying that there is no cabin gain in home audio is wrong.

Then I believe that there is no need for ******** remarks when nothing even concerns you.

"Room gain" in home audio is a very real thing. It is the same as "cabin gain" in car audio. Look man I'm not trying to make you look or feel stupid I'm just sharing knowledge. I'm sure there are a lot more sites with even more in depth info than what I've provided.

I never said that you were wrong, I agreed with you. What I did say is that there is no cabin gain in car audio which equals that you cannot rely on a speaker to have a large boost in output in a bedroom when compared to in a home. If you don't agree with that, then fine because it's the truth.
