Default When did acoustic suspension become infinite baffle?

Todays rant.

Growing up, the two were quite different. How did we adopt the IB name to the sealed enclosure? An IB used to be a flat plane, large enough to prevent wave canellation down to 20Hz, and AC was any old sealed box.

Heck, I don't even hear the term acoustic suspension anymore. I suppose I should roll with the punches and get on with it but the whole thing rubs me the wrong way.

Never mind the 'sub' woofer thing

Cal,

I believe infinately baffled refers to mental state of a DYI'er when he can't get his newly built 50 foot square speaker into the living room.

I think accoustic suspension is what happens when you ignore warnings from the moderators about being rude or abusive.

Acoustic suspension is when the Vas/Vb ratio is less than 3. Infinite baffle is when the ratio is 3 or above.

Poobah, You're great.

Shin, Don't have to worry about the speed with my omni/multi/bi-directional speaker leads. They promise zero drag provided I elevate the amp above the speakers to not compromise the electron siphon effect.

Joules, I like it and I wonder if the speed of the bass changes with the choice of automobile?

Its the colour of the car that determines the speed. And purple is scientifically proven to be *the* quickest.

That's what my friends from the sixties said.

You know that is interesting... purple speaker wires are claimed to be fast as well.
