Default Basic box design.

Hi all,

UnixBox (and a few others) is saying that the recommended vented box for my driver is 20.5L with a Fb of 37Hz.

Ive seen quite a few kit designs using the same driver that use a much smaller bass-reflex box (like 15L) with a lower Fb.
If i put thier box configs into UniBox i get a nice smooth curve but with a higher F3.

Basically what i would like to know is; what are the sonic effects of going with a smaller box/lower Fb?

Im guessing that the smaller box and higher F3 gives better accuracy.... ???

Cost and/or aesthetics (or available premade cabinets) are the only likely advantages. Nothing wrong with either design.

smaller boxes can work with some loose fill....and you can acheive punchier bass to a certain extent but then you will also exibit some distortion at higher levels so it comes down to a trade off on what you willing to sacrifice
