Default equations for FR charts

The various loudspeaker books I have show frequency response charts for Qts's of .5, .707, .8, 1.0, 1.1, etc... Can anyone tell me what the formulas are for those charts?

Well, the response at resonance can be given by the formula:
20 Log Qts.

So a woofer with a Qts, (or Qtc) of 0.5 is -6 dB at resonance.

I also have a copy of Richard Small's article Loudspeakers in Closed Boxes from the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society on my hard drive. I think the formulas are there.

I can Email it to you if you want.

Thanks.

Pasted from www.diysubwoofers.org

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
To calculate the frequency response of a sealed enclosure system, you will need to know the following:
Fb = resonance frequency of the system
Qtc = Final Q of the system at resonance


then,

Fr = (F/Fb)^2
dBmag = 10*LOG(Fr^2/((Fr-1)^2+Fr/Qtc^2))

where,

F = frequency (Hz)
dBmag = SPL 1W/1M at frequency F
------------------------------------------------------------

Now you plot dB vs. Frequency and you have your chart.
