Default Mini-Micro Subwoofers?

Any plans for tiny subs, to go with a computer system?

Hi there,

I don't have a design but I have been looking at small woofers and subwoofers that might fit your needs well.

The three questions:

How small should the box be?
How low in frequency do you want?
Is your source mono or stereo?

As always, compromises must be made.

Creative Sound SDX7 will fit in as small as a sealed 1/8 ft^3 box.

Tiny subs need tons of eq to produce anything resembling bass. Pick one that has big excursion that you can drive the heck out of.

Why bother with "tiny"? Just stick it under the desk and the size doesn't matter. I'm using the box I orginally built for a Mustang hatchback, about 2.4 cubic feet. It makes a nice footrest.

Parts Express still has the other Tang Band 5.25" sub for under $20. I'm just bummed that they discontinued the 4" W4-992S driver. I bought a pair to use in a couple of tiny subwoofers for some ultra-small full-range speakers I have that use Tang Band W3-594S drivers in small sealed boxes, but nobody else will be able to build them unless they already bought some of the W4-992S during the clearance sale.
