    Enclosure design for 16 8's

    Looking at a clamshell design.


    Considering doing it for my own.

    However. The mouth, I can only get about 8x33.5....=268"s Surface area.
    The speakers have a surface area of 804"s......16 8"s.

    Any idea on how well it will work?

    What kind of 8's are they? I say bandpass if you're going to wall it.

    Oh by the way, this is a trunk car, I will be attempting an IB, with the clamshell front.

    going with clamshell because of space, I just don't have it.

    Re: Enclosure design for 16 8's

    What are the rules and things to look out for in a clamshell? Do you need the opening/mouth to be as much surface area as the cones or what?

    Re: Enclosure design for 16 8's

    that's what I'm not sure about.

    I was told it'd at like a bandpass, and I had enough surface area that each 8" would have something like a 4x4" port.

    Re: Enclosure design for 16 8's

    Someone that knows something about this please chime in! I am curious to know some things about clam-shells since it is more than likely going to be my next setup as well.

    BTW how much power are you going to be running to the 8's?

    Re: Enclosure design for 16 8's

    I will be running 1 or two sundown 3000D's

    soo... anywhere from...

    I can wire them to 1 ohm, or .25 ohms. or 4 ohms

    8000 watts/ 500 each @ 1 ohm strapped
    3200 watts/ 200 each @ 4 ohm strapped

    kill 1 amp @ .25 ohms and get maybe 5000? with 312.5 per speaker.
    Run 1 amp @ 1 ohm, and get 3000 / 187.5 to each speaker.

    Rated 200, has been run 400, and burped at possibly 800.
