archive.org -> reaudio.com -> 02/03 XXX -> SQ: .75-1.25 cuft sealed or 2.5 cuft tuned to 23Hz

ported eh? never have i ever heard anyone or any company suggest ported for a sound quality setup..

a properly built ported enclosure will do just fine for SQ applications. Tuned low they perform very well

and im assuming this will still yield an output gain over a sealed box, yet still sound good?

SQ is also very subjective. I never cared much for sealed and will take a proper ported enclosure over a sealed anyday.

There's a thread on DIYMA where tuning higher then normal had very good results and using EQ to tame down the bump/peak you get from porting...

2.5 cuft tuned to 23Hz

Are you trying to communicate with whales or something?!

A big box tuned really low won't have the peaky output of a louder ported box, but the response curve will be super flat and it will sound great, just not get as loud, but the SQ will be there.

If you do 2.5-3 cubes at 23hz I am sure you will be impressed as long as you're throwing optimal power at it...... The ****** will beat hard and be a low note ***** fo sho!

this.

tuning low like that will definitely have an even response curve, avoiding peaks and drops, and the output rolloff will be gradual and you probably wont notice it until it gets below audible level with a tuning that low.

if you can get me the sub parameters, i can model it up for you and show you the rolloff curves, so you can decide how big the box should be or how low you want to tune.

PM me if you want me to. I wont be able to do it until later tonight.

Most HT applications use ported subs...

My HT sub is 4.6 internal volume to 16 hz on a Shiva-X. Sounds phenomenal.

And I doubt you'll find any HT setup that SQ isn't the main objective

XXX is considered a home theater subwoofer, or am i mistaking HT?

either way my main objective is SQ for sure.

Supergumby5000: I'll be in touch, thanks!
