The Other John K, (i.e. the smarter one) just wrote a unique spreadsheet detailing the effects of nonlinear driver suspension compliance. I think he intended this to be the primary consideration for dipole design, but this basically shows in a little more detail why I generally prefer larger boxes for subs.

It's a neat sim that can show why placing a large Xmax woofer in a small box can cause distortion.

The test of a simulation is not whether it reifies one's prior beliefs but if it accurately predicts what happens and what matters in the world of experience.

As the USA shuttle program manager recently said, "All the wind tunnel tests and fluid dynamics simulations are not worth one test flight."

Simulations . . . be skeptical.
