    T-Line Enclosures

    Can someone explain these to me?

    I tried the search button, didn't get anything.

    Re: T-Line Enclosures

    Its essentially a long 'port' with an area = to cone area, and the length is = to the quarter wave length of the frequency you want it tuned to. There is no 'net volume' in the sense of a ported box, in a t-line, just 'port'.

    If you need one designed, pm me for a quote.

    Re: T-Line Enclosures

    how does the port area = the cone area? I think I understand the wavelength thing...but the other is throwing me for a lupe.

    can it be used for a daily box and not just a burp box for a certain frequency?

    Re: T-Line Enclosures

    The line area should equal or exceed slighty the cone area of the driver used. Normally, it is difficult to make the line area exactly equal to the cone area, as the frame and mounting immediately force an area larger than the cone area. The area can be gradually tapered down to the actual area to save space, but it can remain the same as when it started, as long as it is not more than than about 20-25% more area. This means a very tight sizing for the woofer mount and the begining of the line.

    Lets say for example your cone area = 100 sq in. you'd then need the area of the t-line to = 100 sq in along the whole length of the line (like a port area of 100 sq in)

    In terms of response, it will be affected by your car and your sub, but they have close to an 'ideal' bandpass response generally in terms of output. They are meant (typically) to extend an octave or so below tuning without the loss of output you see with regular ported boxes, as well as plenty above tuning, for a very flat response.

    please expain the quarter wave length a little more. That's got me a little perplexed.

    Re: T-Line Enclosures

    To tune it to a full wave length, you'd just use the length of a wave of that frequency. Divide that by 4 and you have your quarter wave length.

    Re: T-Line Enclosures

    (Speed of sound in inches/second) / (4*Frequency in hz) = wavelength in inches

    Transmission line enclosures do not always need to have the line area equal to the cone area nor does it always need to exceed it. This can work but is often not necessary. In order to find out how much line area you need, you need to consider the resistance factor of the driver, the shape function of the line (line taper and line frequency), the Sd, and the Re/(BL^2) product. That will give you an idea of how much line area would be optimal for the driver. Changing the line taper and line area will affect the frequency response and low frequency extension of the system. If the line area is too small for the mounting depth of the driver, it's possible to add a compression chamber for the speaker to fit.

    Transmission line enclosures don't have to be as large as people think. I fit one in smaller dimensions than I fit a 2.2 cube ported enclosure. It had better efficiency; low frequency extension; power handling (mechanical power handling increased around 15-25hz); and transient response.

    They are not going to be the best for getting loud at a single frequency but will offer a very musical and very efficient enclosure with a low end that is effortless and full. That is if the design is well implemented for the driver and vehicle.

    You should write one up.
