Discussing measurement data or techniques in no way detracts from my enjoyment of the subs. Makes it more fun, actually, because the discussions and debates usually lead to greater knowledge and deeper understanding in the end.
Just want to say I've read and learned much for your thread, and many others here.
Love the DIY spirit and the sharing/collaboration that goes with it.
I've found once I started taking measurements for my IB sub, it helped tie all the books I've read into reality, still learning.
You read this and that acoustic/speaker book, but until you take measurements, think about what they mean, and experiment you are not really learning.
So, I am/was/are partially driven with a passion to learn. Plus maximizing my investment's output for listening pleasure.
Hard thing to do is "call it quits" with the graphs/tweaking and just enjoy the sound.
How long did it take you to "de-compress" from this build?
Or, the journey is never ending?
