whats up ppl,
I used to be do a lot of car audio stuff, but I never messed around with HT too much. I am currently looking to design a nice set of speakers with some left over equipment I have. I'm planning on building either floor standing speakers or some decently sized book shelf ones.
Per side I'll be using:
2 x Peerless 6.5 HDS Woofers
Peerless 831735 6-1/2" HDS Driver 299-281
1 x Vifa Metal Dome Tweeter
The Madisound Speaker Store
As of right now I do not have a sub woofer for this, however I will most likely be adding one eventually. Now, I mainly have two questions.
1) Would it be better to have both woofers play the entire mid-range or would it be better to low pass one at around 220hz (or other) to add more warmth and depth at cost of some effiency.
2) Would it be better to port the woofers at around 53HZ using a smaller box, adding more mid bass to blend with the sub woofer... or is it better to design a larger box with a lower port frequency to obviously add depth?
I know these might be a couple noob questions, but any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
