  • Help with sub 200hz

    56 is box tuning, not sure why i wrote f3. They are wired in phase. I tried no stuffing to see if i was blocking the port and it didnt help whatsoever. I also tried sealing the port to create a large sealed box and still no change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

      Look for leaks. If you tape up the port to make a smaller hole you can blow into the port to check for leaks. An impedance sweep would give the definitive answer.

        Would a leak cause that much change? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

            Until you measure we don't know how much we are talking about. Have re read this chance are there's no BSC correction. Do you have an x-o on the these?

              Xmax @ 80Hz w/10w RMS?

                Sounds like there has been no filtering for baffle step losses.

                  Ive tried 1-3mH coils and 4-8 ohm resistors. My last test had 3mH and 8ohm resistor. It helped some but still worlds away from what it should be. I do not have any test equipment, just ran some frequency sweeps. 200hs is where it seems to drop pretty severely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

                    traced, guessed baffle, etc.

                      It may sound dumb, but did you break in the drivers? This is a modest driver with a 6g moving mass and 3mm Xmax. You may need to give the suspension a little help. If mechanical palpation doesn't do it, I'd run up the power at resonance frequency in free air (where impedance is 40 Ohms and nothing will overheat) until the cone got moving and let it run a few hours. Moving the cone with fingers is usually enough if there's a generous Xmech.

                        Ive been working on breaking in the drivers some more. A few hours on 60hz tone. Even on 15w full volume it is pretty quiet. And that is free air too. Its strange and i cant figure out what is going on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

                          They have a great midrange and are very clear but for lack of better words just sound like really articulate tv speakers; very thin Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

                            What are you using to drive the soundbar?
