Update. Ordered 3x 2512's, so the driver chapter is done.
Now it's time to design the box. I'm on a steep learning curve with all the software available, so any input is greatly appreciated.
First, I need to determine the volume. Mayhem, you are using 2.0 cuft, right? That looks what I will use too, but wanted to verify assumptions.
The goal is to get Qtc close to .707 for a flat response, right? If I read below correct, a 2.0 cuft box nails that.
Using the box calculator at DIYAudioandVideo
, and my goal to be about 30" tall and keeping the baffle at 15" wide (per BWaslo), I get the below options. I'm guessing that the first box (28h x 15w x 12d) is the better bet than the 2nd option (30h x 15w x 10d). The second seem to thin. What is the min "clearance" for drivers? Last, are folks using any floor spikes? I have thick padded carpet over concrete. These spikes
add 1 1/2", so that get's me close to my desired 30" with option 1.
