    obsidian audio build V2.0

    well after metering (145.3 at 48hz) the last box which was 5.4cubes wit 4 4" ports tuned to 33hz. it does good and sounds great also. i just felt like the small box and the ports were holding the obsidians back some and they had more in em so i went back to the drawing board and came up wit a design i liked, which is 6.2cubes and 101sqin of port tuned to 35hz. hopin the combo of larger box and larger port gets me a gain on the meter. well here are the pics. none really of the box being built, but pics of it built and then felted.



    all port edges rounded ova


    port painted

    thanks! dont get me wrong i like the box that i have in there now, i just thnk that the woofers have more in em and that the small box is holding em back. hoping the larger box and bigger port will get me a gain of some sort.

    Are you sure that the new box is tuned to 35? That is a very short port and looks to be tuned very very high...like a burp box.

    Re: obsidian audio build V2.0

    yea there 15s and yes im sure on box. just went back and rechecked everything. port goes down into box 13.5" and is 7" wide. box is 6.1cubes Net tuned to 38hz. forgot to factor in the 45s i put in so lost a tad of space and raised tunnign a touch, but still in the area i was shooting for. so all is good. if anything having it tuned a tad higher then i originally thought may actually help my score....

    thanks for the comments guys and the concern made me go back and recheck lol

    Re: obsidian audio build V2.0

    Could you PM me the dims on the box and port? Not saying your wrong but I would happy to double check for you. I would hate to see you miss something and then do all the work of swapping just to be disappointed in the result.
