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. www.mh-audio.nl/ClosedBoxCalculator.asp
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.
