CincyR/T: the roll off (that's the time it takes for the sound to degrade, right?) has to be very fast in order for you to hear the following tone (i.e. the drum solo i posted a link to above). Yet limiting the sound to a short frequency range is a no-no, 'cause the bass drum isn't the only sound that's supposed to be coming out of the sub. What's a bandpass, anyway? Is it the same as a sealed box, only with a crossover? Has anyone ever tried combining differend subs into a system? Say, a sealed box, a freeair, and a bandpass? I wonder what that would accomplish.
Aaron D: When stuffing the box and hence increasing the effective volume, what other parameters change? Any reason not to do it? What're the advantages of a port, besides being able to plug it with a sock? [img]smile.gif[/img]
There's a problem with listenning to subs in the stores' listenning rooms. The ones I've been to have a severe lack of choice, no way to tune 'em, and like camel said, they sound completely different from when their in the car. So I guess the only way for me to experiment is to buy the subs, install em, and return em when I don't like em. If I do that though, I can't mess with the boxes.
