it's possible. with some peculiarity and limitations ...would be possible to get a bass reflex woofer (qts=0.28) working properly in .. infinite baffle..
<--- in my system now for example. Qts ~.3. it's working definetly better than previous Qts .4x.
Low Qts woofers "work" in a sealed box I'm not disputing that, but what you will end up with is a much poorer bass extension.
Isn't that why we have the LT circuit and tons of power (if the driver can handle it)?
I know the LMS5400 with 18" (Qts = .325) is a beast in a 3 cuft box with 4000Watts and boost down low.
I'd like to know if it would be possible to get a bass reflex woofer (qts=0.28) working properly in a sealed box (acoustic suspension or infinite baffle), and in case how to get such a result.
What makes a driver with a Qts of 0.28 a bass reflex driver?
Most sources that you read tell you to adjust the size of the sealed enclosure to combine with the driver for a total Q of 0.71. The lower the Qts of the driver the smaller the box can be.
All just for fun!
