Just bought best 15" musical bass speaker Dayton sells. Guys there seem really knowledgeable and helpful but i'm getting very different recommendation on cabinet size depending on who I talk to. One Dayton ad said 8.7 cubic feet for ported box. But one sales guy said that was old school and would not work. 3.8 cubes was ideal. Each guy had it different with reasons and apparently full use of bass box pro and the win... something free on net. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to proceed without me having to get involved technically? Thanks
big variety of music, very loud, room is 13 x 33 but I listen shortwise.. Dayton seems neutral about sealed or ported. They says it works in both although of course with different size boxes. I made a beautiful 9.3 cube box 20 years ago that I'd like to use. Although I guess it would be no problem to shrink internal volume.
Correct. Depends, i.e. this box is acoustically large enough to be considered ~ an infinite baffle (I.B.), so assuming the driver's specs are ~accurate, then you'll have a ~transient perfect sub, the ideal for music. Where you locate the box and how it's oriented relative to wall, floor and where on the box the driver is located will determine how much (sub) bass output it will have.Dayton seems neutral about sealed or ported.
