Correct, though the driver specs you posted are close enough to others I'm aware of, just the published response is way off WRT to how flat it is, i.e. much more 'humpback' like HR sims due to being a too high Qt driver for this cab alignment [too small, too high tuned].

It's only a 'sub' by vintage prosound requirements as up until fairly recently, prosound was ~flat from 80-300 Hz, -12 dB/60 Hz, -24 dB/40 Hz simply because the music didn't have much bass to the point where 'sub' bass was below 40 Hz, with 'infra' bass below 20 Hz till THX became the cinema norm, so reclassified as 'sub' bass below 20 Hz in recent decades.

With a 40 Hz Fs, the only way it will get anywhere near 20 Hz at a reasonably loud output is with a small room size BLH, so think of this 'sub' as one for a low B bass guitar.

GM,

Thank you for the information. I definitely was barking up the wrong tree. I appreciate the knowledge.

Try blocking off the ports and equalizing them flat to 35 Hz. Then you can judge if these have sufficient output for your needs.

TBTL,

I will try that but with much less equalization to see how it sounds vs leaving it stock.

Regards,
Gary
