hello guysjust joined the forums
My speakers are Sony Xplod XS-GTF6938 50Wrms/channelFrequency range 40Hz-22000HzSensitivity 92db+/-2db /W/m
my enclosure dimensions (outer, wood width is about half inch or less) are attached as image
Port was pre-cut in this enclosureI am using head unit to power them. bass is very low (as compared to when they were installed in my ex hatch over trunk (like infinity baffle).I now want to use it as home audio as I wont be buying a car for a while.
How do I enhance bass from thesePort Length Calculator (http://www.mobileinformationlabs.com/HowTo-1Woofer-Box-CAL%20Port%20lenth%201.htm) suggested 4.6inch port length to enhance bass to lower 40hz. I have installed 4.6inch pvc pipe of 1.25inch diameter in port. Still bass is not very good
please suggestion proper place, size, and number of ports to get better bass response from this enclosure. I cannot change the enclosure. Speakers are being powered by car head unit.
Thanks in advance
Give them their rated RMS wattage (power). Will probably get closer to it with home system than car headunit. They won't ever hit very low, no matter. They aren't meant to. 60-80 hz is likely as low as they will hit and might not do that well but should do 100 hz very well. Car headunit is giving them maybe 15 watts each, maybe as high as 20 watts each. Not enough. RMS. MAX or PEAK don't count in the real world. Gotta have power to make bass.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
