    isbobaric 6th order designer

    Folks, who would you recommend as a good 6th order designer? I have had a couple of 4th orders before, but never tried a 6th order and my understanding is if the design isnt right these things dont perform well at all. I am looking at the MCM 8 subs and want to do 4 subs in an isobaric 6th order. I would be giving them about 700/800rms from an older Rockford 800a2. Again, who would you recommend for this?

    BTW, here are the subs Im looking at.
    MCM Audio Select 8'' High Excursion Woofer - 120W RMS 4ohm | 55-2421 (552421) | MCM Audio Select

    What are your goals with this box and why the idea of running isobaric?

    I'd imagine Buck could design one. But off topic: I ran one of those bad boys in an Autotuba design for over a year and it's a hell of a little sub.

    A guy on another forum said the same thing about the autotuba. I had never heard of it and googled the design. How many watts did you run to your Autotuba? I get the impression that most people arent running more than 2 or 3 hundred watts based on the sub they pick.

    Couple of the reasons for the isobaric. With 4 I basically can end up with a 4ohm load which is way better for my amp(old school and doesnt really do 2 ohm with my electrical). I also had a isobaric sealed back in the day and loved it. I also am trying to cut as much space as possible and the MCM isnt really a high motor force sub so iso should work well.

    That makes sense. I can model a parallel tuned sixth for you but I don't do cut sheets. So if you can take volumes and port dimensions and make your own box I'll gladly model it for you.

    I was running around 150W RMS to it, but I feel like it could handle more. My amp I had hooked to it would only output 150W RMS @ 4 Ohm. Honestly for what it is it gets down and gets pretty loud. I mean it's a $30 8" Sub.
