    Re: Bookshelf speaker tuning

    I would think tuning it that high would give you a weird peaks in the response.

    I'll be back in Cincinnati later this afternoon and will look at it then...

    How much room would you have? Any corners?

    If yes to the latter, do some BIBs for those things, you won't need a sub

    I was aware of that, but they fit nicely in corners, almost like they aren't there

    With its massive x-max, mid Q, and somewhat low FS, those drivers can easily go down to 30 hz or lower in room with authority in a 1/2 wave pipe horn (which is what a BIB essentially is). I doubt that footprint will be that big either

    Re: Bookshelf speaker tuning

    Playing around with the responses of the driver it actually models pretty nice at .75 cuft at 41 Hz.

    That would give you about -3 dB at around 40-45 Hz which will crossover very nicely with a subwoofer.

    If you wanted to use the 2" round port it would need to be 5.282" long.
