call it what you want, that peak is what arises in a manifold design. in this case, it is only a partial, which is why i called it pseudo. ymmv.

Listen. It's All Good.

I don't recall my manifold designs having a peak worth mentioning, and they were barely big enough for the drivers.

you probably had a good design. :-)

here is an example of how it can potentially become a problem:

Great graphs, thanks! smile.gif

Looks like aiming for a slot cutout of the same area as the cone would be what to aim for in order to extend the top end of the rising curve but avoid too much of a peak, perhaps even a little larger if the subs are set back from the opening? (which I presume most of an 18" driver would be? lol)

I'm not quite sure where 'slot loading' turns into 'just a massive hole where the driver is located' biggrin.gif but I think I will just have to design to the smallest plenum/slot/vent I can as I am so limited on space! Hopefully it will sound ok...

Yes and no. Transmission line design (I am just a novice) revolves around the rear line volume being determined by the surface area of the woofer (Sd) and the tuning frequency to match the natural resonance of the speaker. I did not work with a predetermined volume requirement. So I could have used a single 4 ohm sub and build the same size. I would expect the same performance but that is just a guess.

I am thinking that the overall enclosure volume might control excursion of the woofer but I have not deep dived into those aspect of enclosure design.

That sounds complicated tongue.gif lol I will save that reading for another day, I seriously need to get this sealed PPSL-like design finished first! biggrin.gif
