I furiously searched google and found this thread. I was ecstatic to see this driver/enclosure plays flat from 25-100hz and now I want it in my Lincoln LS.
I am more interested in this enclosure for car audio use. I love the way these types of enclosures sound. My brother has a 12" Ascendant Audio Avalanche in a "SnailShell" which is a t-line/horn type enclosure -- it produces bass unlike any enclosure I have ever heard. I think it would be awesome to have deep great sounding bass without rattling my car apart. It would also be cool to see the reactions people have when you tell them it is 1x6.5" on 150wrms. (shock factor is partially the reason I am working on another build for my Hertz Air Mille 5400 21" subwoofer).Anyways, here is my question is, what would change if I were to make this out of 3/4" Baltic Birch? I am concerned that if I use 3/4" with these dimensions (adjusting for the additional 1/4" width of the wood) that I will be changing the tuning and I won't be able to achieve the same results as stated here.lilmike or radman12
- would you be able to send or attach here in this thread, the build sheets (like the PDF you made), that gave people the option to use 3/4" material instead of 1/2".
3/4" thick material is a waste on this build.
Take another look at the plans - I'd have to completely refold the horn to accommodate the extra 1/4" seven times from side to side and four times to fit it in from top to bottom. The enclosure would grow in all dimensions, and it would not sound any different.
If you tried to use 3/4 without a complete refold, the driver would not fit inside when you got done.
If it gets refolded and new plans get drawn, it won't be by me. There is NO NEED to use 3/4 material on this one at all. 1/2 baltic birch is even overkill, 1/2 arauco is fine.
