    ported or sealed based on T/S

    What is the general rule for subs being in big, small, ported, or sealed boxes and creating an SPL or SQ box based on T/S parameters alone. I know that qts and vas and fs has a lot to do with it... other than that i'm a total noob? If anyone could explain or post a link THANKS!
    -Tyler



    My Winter System:

    15" L7 completely fiberglassed into the trunk w/ fiberglassed kicks for Infinity 6000cs's.

    Sealed:

    Qr = Qtc/Qts
    Vr = Qr^2-1
    Vb = Vas/Vr
    Fb = Qr*Fs
    F3 = Fb*((1/Qtc^2-2+((1/Qtc^2-2)^2+4)^0.5)/2)^0.5

    If Qtc>(1/2)^.5
    then dBpeak = 20*log(Qtc^2/(Qtc^2-0.25)^0.5)
    Else dBpeak = 0

    where,

    Vb = net box volume (litres)
    Fb = box resonant frequency (Hz)
    F3 = -3dB frequency (Hz)
    dBpeak = maximum peak or dip in system response


    Ported:

    Vb = 20*Qts^3.3*Vas
    Fb = (Vas/Vb)^0.31*Fs
    F3 = (Vas/Vb)^0.44*Fs
    dBpeak = 20*LOG(Qts*(Vas/Vb)^0.3/0.4)

    where,

    Vb = net box volume (litres)
    Fb = box resonant frequency (Hz)
    F3 = -3dB frequency (Hz)
    dBpeak = maximum peak or dip in system response
    Dv = internal diameter of port (cm)

    Re: ported or sealed based on T/S

    General rule of thumb is Qts of .4 or above is best suited for sealed, below that best suited for ported.

    Along with that, EBP (Qes/Fs) of closer to 50 is better suited for sealed, closer to 100 is better suited for ported, and in the middle can go either way.

    Squeak, look at the Sealed spl box size recomendations on the Type R, why are they so small, and also those are all Gross box volumes, so after displacement, the 12 inch type R will be in about .35-.4 cubes....WTF?

    That graph is .5ft^3 sealed. That is normal. And it needs to be .5ft^3 after displacment...

    at the bottom of the first chart it says all volumes are Gross volumes.
