    Re: 15" IB Sub for other than IB??


    I would just want the best sound quality possible out of it. I know there are better sounding setups, but I already have this one, so I'd like to use it.
    How do you think it would perform compared to, say, the 295-470 in its proper enclosure? As long as I wouldn't be getting sound less than the quality of a basic driver like that I would be OK.

    They also model well in BP4 type enclosures.

    It will work nicely in a large sealed box. It isn't suitable for a vented enclosure. A bit over 5 cubic feet sealed will get a Qts of around 1.1 with a -3db point at around 28 Hz. The bass would be a bit "warm" with a bump in response of less than 1.75 db centered between 40 and 50 Hz.

    3 cubic feet will get a Qts of around 1.3 with a -3db point of around 33-34 Hz and about a 3db bump in response centered between 50 and 60 Hz. There are a great many people out there that would prefer this setup, especially for rock/pop/hiphop.

    I'm not sure I would go much smaller than 3 cubic feet.

    Put it in as large a sealed box as you can tolerate. It will be a highish-Q alignment (between 1 and about 2) depending on how big. It will be bassy but at one time, they used to build speakers like that *on purpose*. It's probably too high a Q to even try vented.

    Sure. What's the part number?

    15" IB Sub for other than IB??


    I have one of the Dayton 15" infinite baffle drivers left over from an install that never happened. Is there any way this driver could perform well in some kind of sealed or ported enclosure instead of free air? I seem to remember hearing once that it could be done, but that may have been involving car audio.
