    IB woofers water enclosure?

    Could an IB woofer invert mounted in a sealed box full of water function?

    No water cannot be compressed thus it cannot act like a spring for the sub an react on

    Though water cannot be used, what about other fluids such as different gasses. A perfectly sealed box filled with nitrogen could sound different. This opens up a whole different world O.o

    Re: IB woofers water enclosure?

    Why was this even brought up? Are you wanting to change the sound of the sub, the response, something else? I am curious why an air-filled box is not good enough......

    This is car audio. NOTHING is ever good enough

    But I think the different gases/liquids idea would be awesome. Maybe sealed boxes can be smaller and have the same response! who knows

    Same reason I was wondering where are these physics majors let's see if someone can figure this
    Shouldn't be too hard to figure the diff in compression between everyday air and some other gas since we know the rates that most gases compress

    If you fill the box with Helium your sub will only be able to produce High notes.

    I would guess type of gass in the type of gass would make little to no difference. Considering how little audible difference say a 25% change in volume would even make.

    Re: IB woofers water enclosure?

    just now realized this was my thread.

    Actual reasoning behind this was to ask if the front of a woofer is waterproof give it is not a paper/pulp cone. Marine applications and such, given that the back of the woofer would not be exposed to any water.

    actually a good question. even though water dont compress sound travels 15 times faster and 10 times farther in water than in air. i think someone might be on to something here

    Re: IB woofers water enclosure?

    Going to need some 10krms woofers with 10" neo magnets to resonate through water though. With a metal cone to prevent distortion/cone flex with some crazy pole stabilization.
    Or something crazy like that.
