It's hard to find 6" driver with big Vas to get SPL around 95dB. I read somewhere that Vas can be ignored in calculation because there is no box, is it true? Sheldon, good idea even better with motorized baffle wing! See you.

Yup.

Of course it does. My spreadsheet calculates the absolute SPL for 2.83V applied and 1m distance. Most Box Calculation programes only provide a relative SPL calacuation. A larger Vas meas a more efficient Driver.

I am not surprised. You are running up against the little thing called Physics.

Of course not.

Happy New Year 2004, to all you guys, may audio be with you!

That comes from using unsuitable drivers (Low Qt and low sensitivity) and way too small size baffles (remember, folding gains you only minimal LF extension over the front section of the baffle on it's own.

Do the job right (Suitable driver, sufficiently large baffle) and the result will be very good.
