    HT Enclosure Design for 8 incher...r

    Ok, I got a Kicker Comp VR to spare, and I want some bump in my room...
    What would be the best enclosure design?
    Just ported?
    I was thinking about something crazy, like horn enclosures, anything that will get the most out of this 8..
    The frequency response is 30-500 Hz...
    Any ideas???
    Sorry, I'm a HT no0b...

    I dont know anythgin about BLH enclosures but I'd imagine you'd be well off with a nice ported enclosure tuned low...

    Bandpass maybe? An 8" isn't sufficient for a good HT system anyway. Look into at LEAST a 10", 12" is good and 15" is better.

    Well, ****, i'll just do that...
    I'll put the 8 in my brother's truck this weekend, and find something a little more suitable...
    BTW, I really like those Bully 15's from parts express ...

    An 8" will be just fine in your bedroom, unless your room's huge. If you would post your T/S parameters for your speaker I could recommend an enclosure for you.

    Ohhh, it's a bedroom. Either way, step it up for a HT. Remember, there is no cabin gain in home audio and there's a good 10x more air that it needs to excite.

    There is gain in a room it's just at a much lower frequency usually around 30hz. Once again dependent on room size.

    No **** genius, the point was that whereas in a car an 8" might have some good bass due to cabin gain, you don't have that luxury in a large room inside a home.
