Ported Box Size Based on Vas - Page 2

post #31 of 39
i'd go for the large slot port, but if going round, i'd probably take off a little, perhaps 10-15% what winisd indicates. with a 20hz target, it won't matter if you come in at 19 or 21hz. you'll never know the difference, so don't be too concerned about messing it up.

Thanks LTD. Does winisd account for Vd in the suggested box volume? And is Vd the displaced volume of air or is it the volume of the basket and magnet inside the box?

it is net after everything.

you have to subtract for the volume of the driver, bracing, and port(s).

If it is net volume, shouldn't we add the volume of the driver, bracing, and port(s)? 

 

Is Vd displaced volume of air or is it the physical volume of the cone/basket/magnet inside the box?

That would be gross/total volume.

I believe Vd is the amount of air displaced by the cone.

volume displaced is typically in reference to how much air the driver can move, NOT how much space the driver takes up inside the enclosure. I was assuming that you were talking about the amount of space the driver takes up inside the enclosure.

so, just to put it another way:

exterior volume - exterior panels = gross interior volume

gross interior volume - driver - bracing - ports = net interior volume.

net interior volume is the number winisd uses.

LTD I understand what net and gross mean but the way you are describing confuses me. let's say winisd suggests 100 ltrs net internal box volume and bracing/Vd/port take up collectively 15 ltrs. so, shouldn't the gross internal volume be 115 ltrs and i should build the box to 115 ltrs? coz when we minus the volume taken up by bracing/Vd/port (15 ltrs), the net is still 100 ltrs which is what winisd suggested.
