    Here you go, mr acoustic expert.

    It's highly relevant. 2 soundstream 12"s running in a twin phase tapped horn hit 145dB sub 20hz in a blowthrough configuration. Hypersensitivity.

      how does a passive radiator have any relevance to a tapped horn? lol

      a standard dipole is simply an infinite baffle setup...

      none of this has anything to do with my design.

        Isobaric?
        I have a feeling that isn't applicable here in the true sense of the word as used as a technical engineering term.
        Does it mean something different for Audio? You guys seem to use terminology in off ways.

          I understand quarter wavelength, and tapped horns quite well thanks

          a design a scribbled up some time ago, just for fun, obviously designed using hornresp need any help there?

          looks like a maze ud put a mouse in to get to the cheese....

            I see you got your hands on some synthetic marijuana!

              If you're limited on power, it can be a decent solution, but the output levels are never really that good. Sensitivity is raised tho.

                lmao, in isobaric, sensitivity is REDUCED! the only benefit is you can use a smaller enclosure (theoretically half the volume for the same frequency response as using 1 driver) however, to match the output of the single driver, you need more power.

                  nawwww.... why am i always late to these things...?!

                  where was the flex on that jeep? i'm still waiting for it to start moving panels..? all i saw was a little minor vibration?

                  can i join in this pissing match? looks like fun!

                      Use advanced reply/edit

                      Also, why is there so much hate on people not spending a fortune on audio systems? Some people like to make affordable parts perform well instead of just dumping money in.

                      So it is in the true technical sense of the word incorrect.

                        exactly!! i spent less than $1000 on my cadence and USaudio gear in my car and am doing over 156db and blew out my windshield!!

                        it's all about the design!!

                          I'm all for being a tightass.... which is why I'm currently running $220 worth of Pioneer subs, off a $250 1500watt ReSponse amp, with $50 splits in the front, $20 rear speakers, a $150 4 channel ReSponse amp, and $240 Pioneer headunit...

                          $930?

                          and yet I won "King dB" at the last SPL competition...

                          and all of the gear was bought "new" some was clearance, some I haggled , other was off ebay, but brand new, never used...

                                Seriously hope you're trolling.

                                And beast, dB wars are nothing, they tell you nothing. I could do 150dB at 70hz with my $130 15", but it will have incredible impedance spikes, it will have terrible sound quality, it will have a massive delay, and for daily listening, it will be useless, so comparing how loud one setup is to another is impossible without more variables involved.

                                And isobaric configuration causing lower sensitivity? How? In what way? I have yet to see one graph over 12ms delay and electrical efficiency under 85%.
