    Smart guys only: Recommend an enclosure for a BA G5

    I want to hear your thoughts about enclosures for the G512. Based on the specs, does the driver appear better suited for a sealed application or ported?
    What size for each?

    Specs:


    Fs: (Hz) 28.88
    Qms: 9.93
    Qes: .49
    Qts: .47
    Vasliters) 75.28
    Mmsgrams) 148.50
    Cms: 215.00
    Xmax: (mm) 15.00
    Xmech: (mm) 45.00
    Sd: 499.00
    Bl: 9.15


    FYI: BA recommends a sealed enclosure of 1cubic ft

    and ported 2 cubic ft tuned to 33.

    Qts is right around the middle. Probably pretty versatile. I'd try a ported first though because if you like it, good. If you do sealed, you'll want to know how it sounds ported anyway.

    it will work well in a large ported enclosure with a fairly low tuning....I start designs from the flat response curve and modify from there

    4.5ft^3 @ 25hz is flat

    I just picked up a pair myself...Might go with a set of the Boston gtr radiators so I can get more output yet maintain the sealed box size.

    LOL, you are probably right about at least trying ported no matter what.

    What I may end up doing is trying one sealed at first-- I have a well made box around 1.5 that is currently collecting dust. But very shortly after that I am going to pick up a second most likely and go ported with that box.

    I would love to hear how you like them. I have been wanting to try this sub forever. For some reason I have always been reluctant to try the radiator (not that I know anything against them).
