1. Put the parameters into WinISD Pro
2. Set box tuning to 55Hz
3. Start off with a small box size, like 30 litres. Look at the power handling graph. You should find that the design is thermally limited, i.e. by the voice coil power handling not by excursion (at your chosen 55Hz anyway).
4. Increase box size and you should hit a point when the design is excursion limited.

This is your optimum box size. It will give you best efficiency against your chosen 55Hz. It will sound like dirt though. And you will deafen yourself.

Hi,

as Qts is 0.7 you simply put them in a sealed box.

as Vas is 4cuft per driver use the biggest box you can.

You need 2cuft (Q=1) to 3cuft (Q=0.9) per driver.

I would otherwise agree with you completely, but I think you have misunderstood his application. He wants to make a boom box for car SPL competitions, with no concern to the sound quality.

No you need to tune to 55Hz as I said. That will give you maximum power capability at that frequency.

richie00boy, according to the graph, I think he's better to tune at 45 Hz like he did, he get that nice "free" efficiency peak.

Do you know the Xmax of your drivers Astro Power?

Vent mach need to be under 0.1 at full power, so 0.03 is perfect.

Plain WinISD sucks at predicting air velocity in the vent, since it doesn't show you how velocity changes with frequency. As a _very_ general guideline, for high spl applications calculate the speaker cone area and make your vent 1/4 of this area.

Your dual 13" square woofers sweep about 240 sq. inches, so you need about 80 sq. inches of vent area.
