Hi everyone, I know this is not car audio related, but maybe you can still help. I'm interested in building my very first 3-way home speakers (I've already built a 2 way vented system which turned out real nice), and was going to go with a vented cabinet but I've been thinking about transmission lines because i've heard a lot about them but dont really know 100% what the benefit is over a vented cabinet.
Anyone have a quick and dirty answer as to why a transmission line might be better than a ported cabinet? I assume downsides would be complexity and size. I'm trying to decide on an alignment that would give me the most clean, extended and articulate bass. The goal is not SPL but just a sense of effortless bass. If I can hit a solid 30Hz, that would be idea.
Speakers will each contain a single Dayton RS28F tweeter, single Dayton RS150 6" drive and dual 8" Vifa PL22WR09 drivers.
Thanks in advance.
