View Full Version : How would this enclosure act?

May look stupid, but how would a ported box with a compression chamber act?

Would it provide the

"spring" effect with also the advantage of a port.

the gap between the board and the wall would act like a port but with a port length of 3/4"

ive seen tri tuned enclosures work before.

I was just wondering.

The port would become very inefficient. As the cross sectional area of the blocking section gets larger, the sub will begin to act more and more like a small sealed enclosure and the port will become less and less efficient.

If the opening is small enough it will act like a crappy dual-chamber reflex box (unless tuned specifically and properly). Otherwise it will just act like a crappy bass reflex box.

Here's an example of a DCR (dual chamber reflex) enclosure:

reminds me of the dcr tri tune i was talking about but with slot ports.
