my 2 E8's sealed vs ported...
So I built the ported box I wanted to with a great result at the tuning frequency of around 34Hz
I think I'll keep it like this for a while but I already notice the peak in audible volume around tuning and I'm not sure if I like it.
I think I want to acheive a better low end and don't mind if I loose dB, I just want low and smoother curve
So here's the question, do the curves below look realistic if I was to turn the ported enclosure into a sealed one?
I know the volume of 1.1 cu ft net was ideal for the ported box, but when that goes up to 1.34 cu ft (ading the slot port vol) if I just seal the end up with a plate, seems large, especially as the recomendation for sealed is 0.28 cu ft per sub.
What will the it do to the subs going to over double the sealed volume?
is it like no air spring, like when a ported box is below it's tune?
