We palyed around using WinISD, but things didn't look just right. It seems like most people on this board have a ton of experience using WinISD and giving advice on systems. Would some one be willing to run the numbers for us and provide some direction?
Thanks in advance!
here is the sub with 1000 watts in a sealed 3 cubic footer (yellow) and 5 cubic footer ported tuned to 20hz (green). ignore everything over 80hz, that is just how i have winisd set up.
t/s specs as i entered them are below.
for a form-factor, i believe the svs pb13u is a net 5 cubic footer tuned to 20hz when all ports are in use.
good luck with the build.
the driver has plenty of excursion.
I am consumed by the ability to take this sub to 20hz with a 5 ft3 and 15 with a 10 ft3 box respectively (bigger, better, faster mentality from years gone past).
- What size port tubes would I need to run in each of these boxes and would it start to get boomy or would I still have good movie type thump?
- Would well braced plywood or MDF work the best as the cabinet material.
Thanks in advance (again)
10cu ft ( you need to make the box slightly larger to account for the driver and port volume, use THIS)
Tuned to 15hz with a 2nd order highpass @ 15hz
3 x 16 x 51.50" slot port
I also threw in a sealed enclosure to compare.
Boomy sound is a result of a poor design and room placement. This driver has a pretty good bump at 60hz so tame that down if needed. You might get some room gain down low so it could flatten out. Some people don't like working with MDF because of the saw dust and weight, either is fine just make sure to brace it well. A brace every 6-8" or so is alright.
