Default CSS Trio8 music subwoofer implementation?

Can anyone share their experience with the CSS Trio8 driver as a music subwoofer?
What alignment?
What cabinet volume?
What lowest frequency is practically achievable?

(Here's a link to CSS's data: www.creativesound.ca/details.php?model=TRIO8)

Thanks

Doug

I'm almost ready to post the design. Give me about a week and it will be up with measurements.

I have 4 here. Initial thots are to put them in a pair of push-push sealed with a bit of boost.

Sealed. OK.
What cabinet volume would that be?

I have a pair of really strong (& immaculate) retro-style sealed ply cabinets of approx 27L each. (The volume can be reduced by including filler blocks, of course.)
I was thinking of a solo sealed unit. If it worked well, I could make a second.

After posting that, i loaded up the T/S... to get to Bessel Q (~.58) took just over 50 litres. So with damping anything from 40-some to 70 litres for a pair of drivers would probably do.

50 litres also works ported -- tuned somewhere between 20 & 30 Hz. 20 hz port gets kinda long, 30 looks about right for a high aspect slot port -- i might see how that works too.

Hi,

A T-TQWT in about 40-60 L is possible with a FR stretched down towards 20 Hz. See the simulations: 1(3)-3(3).
