spreadsheet to calculate enclosure size

Post by AirPower » Thu Dec 11, 2008 9:03 pm

I can supply those interested with a spreadsheet to calculate the required box size for the woofer. You'll need the woofers info - Q , resonating freq ect.

I don't think I can fit it on here (is there a way?) It's an excel sheet. Otherwise I'll e-mail it. Don't ask me to explain how it works - I don't do support. :D

DD your problem is not that bad, its just the case that the sub could harm your 6x9's at high volumes if they share the same enclusure. For "optimal" results the enclosures have a calculated volume.

Airpower email it to me at and I'll post it on here.

Eben - I e-mail them zipped up, to you - the reason I didn't want to post them on the forum is due to copy protection. Have a look, you decide. I'll still e-mail to anyone's e-mail address.
