    RE Enclosure calculator

    Is it reliable? Does it calculate everything correctly most of the time?

    Re: RE Enclosure calculator

    Re: RE Enclosure calculator

    Well i build on box with the plans it gave me and im not sure if the tuning or the interior volume is correct. I had it done at 2.2 cubes @32hz with a type e in it. when i went to the TL the guy found my peak loudness at around 52hz. I've also heard good and bad things. it may have been that it was a type e and they **** but i dont know what to think.

    what? no you misunderstood.

    the mic said you peaked @ 52hz. meaning...you peaked @ 52hz. period thats all it means. they werent lying. they werent joking. they werent pulling your leg. you peaked @ 52hz.

    your box very well maybe sitting @ 32hz. i dont know...i didnt calculate your box.

    Re: RE Enclosure calculator

    Well now that I understand all of this I can say that I know the calculator was correct, however, it was not an enclosure that would do what i wanted to. I may need a larger box tuned lower.

    I just need to experiment with different sizes and tuning frequencies and try Win Isd for this to see how that works out. I suppose gaining experience at box building/designing would be the best way to gain knowledge.\

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Re: RE Enclosure calculator

    if you know the dimentions of the variables you can adjust, you can (well i did) use it for a cutsheet.
    its 100% accurate using it that way...

    Re: RE Enclosure calculator

    with a box you make on the RE calculator you must design it with the driver displacement added to it. so, lets just say you want 3 cubes tuned to 32hz for a 12" tc 3000, you must make it 3.02 because the calculator is also .1^3 off.

    so, you have a box that is 3 cubes tuned to 32hz on the calculator, but, its really 3.1 tuned to 31hz. me and a few other people have found this to be correct.

    It may be that .1 off because of wood thickness?

    and thanks for the help everyone.
