2-way enclosure with Monacor drivers

Hi, I start here a new thread after the one about xover reverse engineering. I have these drivers: Monacor SP6-108PRO and Monacor AIRMT-85. I would like to obtain an enclosure similar to this:


18W-8434G00


In annex FRD and ZMA values for drivers. Please can you help me with xover and cabinet plans? Thanks.

As a quick check, if you put the speaker parameters into my-audio bass reflex calculator for an 18l box (as per the Troels link) then you get pretty much the same numbers as the 18w I.e. 18l box, 50mm diam x 95mm length port, f3 = 50hz with similar response curve.

Obviously you will need to design a crossover for your speakers (Troels one will not work) but the woofer in that box looks like it is not a million miles away.
 
I get the same values as Ugg10. With 10W you get 100 dB, but Xmax (3 mm) will be exceeded below 40 Hz (see attachment). You'll need a sub if you want a lot of low bass, but that's true of a lot of 6.5 in drivers.

As I mentioned in the previous thread I did find the FR and impedance graphs from Monacor. I converted them to .frd and .zma files and compared them to the files you provided. The woofer files match quite nicely except the Monacor file is about 2 dB higher than yours. The tweeter files don't match up as well, particularly at about 1250 Hz where the Monacor file shows a peak and your file shows a dip. Here are the two comparisons, Monacor files are in blue and your files are in red.

And here are the Monacor .frd and .zma files. IMO the Monacor tweeter file is a more typical infinite baffle response than the file you provided, but that's just my opinion.

Yes, you can't get phase information from converting graphs. My plan is to add baffle step & diffraction effects (since we have cab dimensions and speaker positions), add high and low tails and then create minimum phase versions which will have the phase information. I also have a good estimate of the z-axis value which is the last item needed for the simulation.
