Re: Speakers came today

If you want to tune anywhere under 25Hz in a car, you may as well go sealed.

Re: Speakers came today

Anyway, 46x24x14 or so. 2.5 cubes each with a center port. 3/4 MDF and it should sound good.

Ignorance hijacked this thread the moment you posted in it. Intelligent people like ngsm have been trying to set it back straight


For the love of god, baby jesus and all things sacred.....do not tune your enclosure to 15hz as this doucherocket above is suggesting.

Re: Speakers came today

I'll put money down that you, Heron, are one of my opposition, or a close friend, seeing as that was your first post on this forum.

"Watch this, I can make another screen name and side with myself."

EDIT- Maybe you, all high-and-mighty-Heron, can explain to me how this, my very first post in this thread, was ignorance.

Give us some info, dude, if you want us to respond.
Ignorance would be answering his question without information. It's like telling someone what year the war ended without knowing what war they are talking about.

Nope. Completely different.

But a member here linked this thread on another forum so that the members there could laugh hysterically at how idiotic you are

(which, by the way, all 20,000+ members of that other forum are laughing hysterically at your posts)

Maybe STFU and actually learn something? Maybe know WTF you are talking about before you try to give advice to someone? Maybe understand the concepts being discussed before you try to disagree with someone?

Then I would stop visiting those forums pronto, because they are obviously and ignorant and idiotic as yourself.

Re: Speakers came today

Jet-Lee-tard, You are Incorrect. Simple as that.

Also, a ported enclosure will generally maintain SQ to about half an octave below tuning.

Also, a subwoofer will generally be fine (I.E. not bottom out) to about half an octave below tuning in a ported enclosure.

I know what Fs is.

I never said anything about losing SQ.

I never said anything about bottoming out either.
1. Graphing on a computer means nothing in a vehicle.

2. Building means nothing if not built properly, or designed properly.

3. Apparently you didn't know what Fs was, or you neglected the definition. Or, more than likely you didn't know it's REAL significance. You tried to incorrectly use the term as a basis for your incorrect assertion.

4. Never said anything about losing SQ? Must I remind you of what you said?

Hmm... interesting...

5. The bottoming out comment was to further educate you.

Thanks.

That is all.

Re: Speakers came today

I don't normally use ported boxes for exactly these reasons. The one thing about them I DO know is that any frequency much below the tuning freq of the box will cause the speaker to be essentially unloaded - as if you were just holding the raw speaker up in the air. It won't take much power to destroy the woofer like that.

Re: Speakers came today

I think it should be deleted. Some stuff was helpful but it was more arguing and flaming than anything. So delete it away.
