Hey i'm hoping someone could help me with my box design?
im using 25ml ply and want to make a bass box with my
driver, if anyone could give me a hand with getting the volume/size of the enclosure that would be great.. also I'm aware that 80watts isn't much but its all i have to work with... also i don't know i i should use a vent i have a spare one that is almost 3inch's in diameter, i'm a complete rookie so don't hate...
Yeah I can't find anything on the internet for that driver. Not even sure if it is a subwoofer so it would be hard to guess what kind of box to make. Personally I would say that if you want to experiment with it as a learning experience, I would make a sealed box. Much easier to construct than a vented box, for a first build.
I have a car sub 10 inch recommended for a sealed box with external dimensions of 438mm x 279mm x 229mm using 19mm MDF, and having an F3 of 48 hz (which is not extremely low but still improves the car sound). So internal dimensions would be 400 x 241 x 191. The internal dimensions would be the same if you use 25mm wood. Might work, might not. Will certainly make noise, just a gamble as to the quality. Impossible to tell without the speaker parameters.
Also, here is an online site for calculating sealed boxes based on the parameters I was talking about, but it won't do you any good without choosing another driver with better product infos.
There are other calculators on there too for vented boxes and horns which I have found useful. Serious design programs for speakers unfortunately requires a non-mac computer. WinIsd and Hornresp are the two that I use.
