Bass extended but overall down a couple DB and lifeless.
Hi guys, so I built a pair of speakers with an 8" and a tweeter based on some vintage drivers from a canadian company called Camber and Vifa D27TG45 tweeters. The bass quality is very good. Clean, articulate and can go down into the low 30's without any issues.
I built the cabinets according to their ideal size that an old dos program called perfect box suggested using parameters I measured with WT3. Ended up being 2.9cf tuned to 33Hz.
I'm finding when listening to the setup that the output from 250Hz on up gradually rises a couple DB until 2Khz when the driver starts to naturally roll off nicely. If I make the cabinet smaller and tune it a bit higher to create a 1-2db bumpb on the bottom, might that bolster the upper bass a bit as well so it can or might come closer to the level at 250Hz? I was thinking of taking it down to about 2Cf tuned to about 36Hz. At least within the application, it shows there to be a 1.5db bump centered around 45Hz and looks like it has like 0.5db at 70 or 80hz still....
The whole thing just needs a bit more 'life' in the bottom. I'm willing to sacrifice some extreme low end.
