    Re: 6th order clamshell?

    I've never seen a 6th clamshell and there's probably a reason for that...IMO 6th's are a PITA as is, just do a normal setup with it if you wanna use it. The easiest way to do the clam with a 6th would be to have it be parallel tuned but parallel tuned setups blow most of the time...

    I just want a clamshell because they look sick... I really just want some great low end extension, but I really dont like 4th's. thats why I thought of a 6th clamshell.

    Re: 6th order clamshell?

    A 6th clam shell would be a pita for sure. The reason is because of how touchy a 6th order can be.

    However, if you do a center ported clam shell it will react like a 6th order.

    That is not much of a "clam shell". Clam shell's are based on there angle and called that do to those angles. Your setup there is more like a fluted 6th or similar. Hard to see the pic on the phone while driving. lol

    Re: 6th order clamshell?

    It can, just depends on the overall design and build. It would would need to be 100% accurate in design and build or you will get some negative reactions from the setup.

    Re: 6th order clamshell?

    I run a series tuned 6th order, or clamshell if you want. Baffles need to have a decent angle otherwise front/rear wave end up cancelling each other.

    First try would play from 30-35Hz and drop off like a bish. Made a few adjustments and now it plays 30-50+ with authority.

    I'd base 4th, 6th, or whatever off the subs you plan to use and what music you will mostly play. Mine will play into the 20's but I hate that **** and never play it. 4th orders are also quite popular for playing stuff that low. Some subs work better in 4th's, some work better in 6th's....
