Furious Wolf Tone
Hello. I hope that you are well and enjoying life in general.
Over the decades, I have only had two loudspeaker systems with poly ~6.5" woofers, and both of them had furious wolf tones in the low midrange-upper bass area. The resonance was so loud in one of them that I had to strain to tell what song was playing, and in the other (which is present), it is merely torturous.
With the one that I have now (an old Infinity model, if you must know), I was able to abate the resonance a bit by adding fiberglass stuffing in the ends of the cabinet. Still, when a singer hits those notes, the speaker goes "WOOOP!". Since one of the things that I want to do with these speakers is to evaluate recordings, this won't do.
The lowest calculated standing wave in this box is 435 Hz, and I don't think that what I'm hearing is that high. I haven't measured it yet.
Does anyone have any actual experience to share regarding curing this problem?
I lean toward replacing the woofers with something better behaved, and dealing with the peripheral issues separately. I'm not interested in anyone's insights on those right now. I need to get this howling fixed.
And by the way, why in the name of God do people evidently put up with this?
Thank you kindly.
