 12th November 2008, 07:17 PM #1 andreaemme   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Nov 2008 Good foot for a downfiring sub Hello, I'm going to build a new bass reflex sub using the Peerless XXLS10 830846 and a Hypex DS 4.0. In this project I've decided to use the downward-firing configuration, and so I have the problem of finding good foot. I've found these: Solen alluminum conic feet So I ask you: is a 5 centimeters distance from the floor to the baffle enough? And at least: where can I find alternative strong conic foot for my project? Thank you very much!

The way I calculate the minimum distance for a 5 cm height requires that for this driver's Sd, Xmax, the perimeter of the cab be at least 104.14 cm, i.e. 26.035 cm on a side if square for a down firing driver. If the vent is down firing, I need to know its diameter to calc the minimum height, but I can tell you it will be considerably higher than what this driver requires unless the cab's perimeter is much > 104.14 cm.

So can I be sure with a 5 centimeters heigth? Please tell us, what method have you used to calculate the min perimeter? Thank you!
