The Short Version. Then follow the link to the more detailed approach. I do not recommend building a line using this methodology... althou if you are looking to tune the line for flattest impedance Jon has some useful info.

IMO, this is the complicated approach


Dave, I think you can explain me:
In Augspourger's tables, what does the Qts mean? Is this the Qts of your driver, or the pipe's one?

Default I like Martin's tl worksheets but . . .

I could never understand why every driver I found to input into the open end tl file always works best, for low-end output, with a very large starting line. Atleast 3 times the Sd of the driver just like Martin's Focal that the file already has inputted in it. Any body else experience this?

Default Pipe Size

The old wives tales of pipe with starting cross=sections of 1.5-2 Sd just won't die. I always start a simulation session with MJK's worksheets with So=4*Sd. Occasionally a pipe will work with 3*Sd, but not often.

Augspurger's tables really only work with large drivers with low Fs. Remember that Augspurger's method assumes Fp>Fs. So, if you start with a driver Fs=45, you are going to have a Fp and F3>50Hz. By using the mass-loading concept, you can design witn Fp<Fs. For exmple, my "Peerless Pipe" has F3=38Hz, even though the driver Fs=56Hz!

(However, if you do have a large, low driver and can stand a refrigerator sized cabinet, Augspurger's method can lead to a really impressive speaker. Of course, you can always get finer detail with MJK's worksheets.)

Bottom line: Unless you are using at least a 10" driver with Fs<30Hz, forget Augspurger, and please, let's never again mention the "classical method".

Bob
