If you have a ported sub corner loaded and it sounds boomy how is replacing it with a sealed sub going to help? Corner loading a sub is usually what causes the boomy ness not the sub. But my earlier opinion of adding a second sub is to help even out the freq response. So if theres only one location for putting the sub and its, from a freq response a bad location how is going from ported to sealed going to help?
Gt. I never said the nsd sounded poor. It sounds very good actually. Its just different. Yes it is in a corner but thats where it sounds best. If i move it out it starts sounding loose. I have had several subs in this spot with the same results.
It just seems to me that sealed subs have a cleaner sound. I dont think it wise to say that as long as you have a flat frequency response they should sound the same. Im confused by this. I think theres more to a subs sound than fr.
This is turning into a sealed vs ported thing so im going to ask a different question.
Do you guys think That the legend should perform on par with the pc12-nsd based just on the specs and the performance of its big brother?
