 "Also, if you want to add this data to the port output, do not forget to scale the port data by the ratio of port diamenter to driver diameter squared. How do i do that? "
Assuming both port and driver are measured near filed, AT THE SAME LEVEL, your data show relative sound pressure at the microphone. Your Panasonic mic is very small, so it does not take into accound that driver has larger radiating area.
The overall SPL (sound pressure level) is proportional to the radiating area of the source. I guess the port is smaller than the driver. Than you have to lower the measured curve from the port by Delta=10*log(D port / D driver)^2 dB.

For example, say the effective diameter of your 4" TB is 3.5" and the ID of the port is 1.5".
Delta = 10*log(1.5*1.5/3.5*3.5)=-7.35 dB.

As soon as I wrote this, I started to doubt myself: do we have to multiply by 10 or by 20 here? I would appreciate a correction, if my memory failed me.

In any case, another good way of checking it is that at very low frequencies, say below 20 Hz the curves should coinside.

Important thing is that you should make these measurements as close as possible to the cone and the terminus of the port (no more than 5mm), and do not change the volume between the two measurements.

I did. But then its mathematics for the pro... Now i know why i need that! Keep going VadimB! But dont brag for us stupid. Learn us with example.

Solve,

I actually need your help to do just that. Earlier in this thread, I've posted an alternative design for 3" TB driver and promised to post measurements. I have screen shots from Sound Easy for that speaker, however they are large files with higer resoultuion. No matter what I do, the software of this Forum tells me that "attached file is too large".

Can you, please, teach me how to do this?

P.S. If there will be some interest in that design - I'll start a new thread on it.

 16th November 2006, 06:41 AM #40 VadimB   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Jan 2006 Location: Princeton, NJ Correction Folks, I've finally checked the DiAppolito book and, man, was I wrong! The correct formula for correction of port-to-woofer is: Delta (dB) = 20*log(D port / D woofer) Diameters are not squared! So, in the previous example (woofer 3.5", port 1.5"), the correction is: Delta = 20*log(1.5/3.5) = -7.34 dB, so the port near-field response should be lowered by 7.34 dB and then summed with the woofer. Sorry, but it's better late than never... VadimB
