i dunno wer x max comes from. heres wat comes with my woofer manual.
max power : 400 watts
freq. response : 30 hz - 5 hz
sensitivity : 90 dB @1w1m

suggested box parameters.
system type : 2nd order closed box
v(B) = 1 cu. ft.
Q(tc) = 1.003
F(sc) = 68.41 Hz
alpha = 4.2

what does those numbers mean. HELP!

v(B) = 1 cu. ft.
meand that the recommended box for this sub is 1 cubic foot.

google search T/S parameters for the rest

Max power = the maximum amount of power the woofer can take

Freq res. - the range in which the speaker plays, but that range is next to impossible, so please post what the speaker is

Sensitivity - How efficient the speaker is aka how little power it needs to get to said volume level. In this case, it takes 1 watt from one meter away to register 90 decibels. The higher does not mean the better, it's only helpful when matching with an amp and an enclosure.

Vb = Net volume the speaker wants, thus, after everything else is accounted for, the amount of airspace left over.

Qtc = Box "q" factor. Usually only used in sealed boxes, it's the total Q of the system at the resonant frequency

Fsc = I have no idea in hell, maybe the rolloff?

Alpha = Again, no fukin clue.

And xmax is merely the amount of LINEAR movement the speaker can make per stroke (one-way). Measured in milimeters, Xmech is how far the speaker can travel when only limited by the suspension components (this is usually NOT linear). Linear travel means that you're most likely not encountering distortion yet, whereas if you're reaching Xmech, you're most likely either overpowering the speaker, or have it in too large of an enclosure (ported most often).

Fsc is the resonant freq of the sub in the box listed.

For the Freq Response there is a "k" missing in front of the second "Hz."

I don't believe English is his first language. Looks like he's from the Phillipenes(sp?)

Stupid '06s. He was just asking what the parameters meant. :rolleyes:

Please tell me that this^^^^^ was error for emphasis. Give the guy a break. How many different languages can you speak (or type) PERFECTLY. Sometimes things just get lost in translation.
