Scott,

you are so close to done, what are you doing reading my thread? You better be waiting for glue to dry!
Now get back to work



Funnay, I never would have pictured you surrounded by hot moms all day, that's really cool




you know i'm just busting your chops

Dan, do I have this right? We're going BIGGER?


I agree to use what the driver has to offer, but 584l?
What happened to the original plan or the 380l proposal?

Vito,

I'm just bitching about how I think tuning lower is the way to go


The box will remain the same basic size, i'mmnna tweek it to get the most volume possible.

Alrighty then....

"aside from extended response lower tuning allows for:

lower vent velocity and less compresion related distortion in the pass band

less load on the driver above tuning, allowing it to actually move some air in your room."


Hmm.


Lower vent velocity but higher woofer excursion/higher distortion


"less load on the driver above tuning, allowing it to actually move some air in your room."


I don't get this one at all; maybe start with defining "load".

Ah yes...but I needed a break for the week. Worked a bit everyday. So I went and saw Transformers yesterday since I hadnt and in the spirit of these soon-to-be-finished subs, I had to go see a bassy movie.
But I really was letting the glue dry and cure overnight and now both baffles have the extra mounting blocks on them.

Dan,


Based on his 350l tuned to 15hz EBS suggestion, Mark from Mach5 says a 6.5" or 7" would work better. So would a 8" work for your design?

I think you should be asking Mark, I say 8" is too big, 350L @15Hz using 8" is ~45" long.


IDK but people around here start complaining when vent lengths get past ~26"

noah,

substitute the word resistance, mabey that'll make more sense to you.

Also, this might not be the place for you to be hanging out if your looking for low excursion


Mabey one of those folded horns would be better for you

Matt & Jim,

Dan,


Actually it doesn't matter which word, it still doesn't make sense to me.


Your statement was


"aside from extended response lower tuning allows for:

lower vent velocity and less compresion related distortion in the pass band

less load on the driver above tuning, allowing it to actually move some air in your room."


Why would the driver move more air at a given freq by moving the tuning point below it?


Driver excursion will increase because more of the output is directly from it instead of the port, but system SPL, efficiency, and max output capability are reduced.

i fairly recently built a llt sonosub design which goes very low (12" lms tc built sub). i wouldn't mind having a little reinforcement down there as well but really need upper bass that will fill a large room. my current llt will shake the living p1ss out of the floors and let you really feel what's happening, but it's not very audible in this large room.


i don't wanna threadjack this, so if need be i'll start a new thread regarding my Q's involving/comparing this with other options. i'm just looking to build something pretty budget minded that will donkey kick me in the chest.

Has this died or is a redesign/tweak effort on-going? I just ordered an IXL 18.4 this morning, and as my first DIY project, this looks to fit the bill.

Can someone explain this a bit. I'm guessing it's a chunk of 6" pipe, but what's SCH 40 and what's variable about the length?


Sorry... I am teh noob.



Also, I plugged the numbers into WinISD and see the "vent mach" is at 0.18 which is above the recommended ceiling of 0.16. Not that I know what that really means, but seems to me that there may be a bit of port noise. The 7 or 8" port brings the mach down considerably, but... Comments?

I'm guessing that Dan is either too busy, on vacation, or bailed out. I'm hoping it's not the latter. Dan told me, he's working on a redesign. We have to wait and see.


Mark at Mach5 suggested a 6.5 or 7" port diameter. The port resonance with the 6.5 to 197hz and the 7" to 258hz.

SCH 40 means Schedule 40 PVC pipe. There are 2 kinds of PVC pipe. Schedule 40 is the thin wall type and Schedule 80 is the thickwall type. The length of pipe in this design is 37.5 inches. That will tune the box to 11.5 hz. The "variable" part is to use a shorter length of pipe to tune the box to a higher frequency. I don't think the vent mach of 0.18 is an issue. You might hear some port noise playing test tones but I doubt it would be a problem with program material.

Thanks. Makes sense. I see you're in Sask too... I'm assuming SCH 40 pipe is pretty common. HD? Rona?


I figured that's what 'variable' meant, but I thought maybe there was something crazy like a dynamic port you could slide like a trombone and get different tuning on the fly.

Hey fellas,

sorry i've been away so long.

The schedule 40 pipe is the "normal everyday" PVC pipe you'll find at the Home Depot. You could use virtually any 6" ID pipe with no problems, another option is SDR 35 it's the thin wall stuff used for drainage tile, lots at times it's green and it also comes in a perforated version.

Vito,

did you typo?
Quote:

for a given length of port, the larger the ID the lower the pipe resonance, & at the same time the larger ID the higher the box will be tuned.



If i'm back home at a reasonable hour i'll see about the revision
