 6th October 2007, 08:08 PM #1 HsOffRoad   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2007 Undivided Sealed Enclosure Response With Multiple Drivers... This may sound like a stupid question, but I have yet to find someone who can give me a good answer to it: How do multiple drivers react when installed in a single undivided sealed enclosure - with regard to (Fb/F3 etc.)? For instance - Say you install 4 12" drivers in a single undivided 4.0 ft3 (Net) enclosure. Do the woofers react as if each driver was installed in it's own 1.0 ft3 box, as if each was installed in it's own 4.0 Ft3 box, or Somewhere in between? If so, is there some easy formula to calculate the volume that each driver "sees" to determine box response characteristics? Thanks, Hans __________________ "Shut Up & Wheel Your Junk!"

Look at the response of one driver in volume of x liters, the response of n drivers in the volume n*x and the response of n drivers in the volume x. The first two are probably the same graphs, the third will have a higher cutoff.

Here is how it turns out in Basta!: (The black curve lies under the pink curve) __________________ Simulate loudspeakers: Basta! Simulate the baffle step: The Edge

Maybe it's just the large y-scale putting me off. __________________ www.readresearch.co.uk my website for UK diy audio people - designs, PCBs, modules and more.

Well, in this case fc changes from 53 to 65 Hz. Qtc changes from 0.7 to 0.85. What may be confusing is that there is an baffle step in the picture as well, that is not compensated for.

Here is the same graph without the baffle step:
