Car sub topic axed?
« on: December 01, 2006, 08:07:04 pm »


    Just wondering what happened to the car subwoofer thread???
I know its not PA (Public Adress/Pro Audio) Rolling Eyes  But it did involve using "PA" Drivers.

If you want to talk about using car drivers for live use its OK, but car audio discussions, even cars using real PA gear is off topic.

There are plenty of car audio sites around the web.

     It may be true that there are a lot of Car Subwoofer forums.
But almost none of the Car Sub forum people know anything about in cab gain.  

    Most of the people working at car audio places don't know anything about it either.  

    I want to know more about predicting room or cab gain.

    You just go ahead and climb around the walls and ceiling see what I care.

What always gets me about the car sub folks is their de facto procedure of inflating SPL figures. 179dB from 4 18" drivers? C'mon, get real.   Laughing

Antone,
Get a copy of Winspeakerz

It will calculate cabin gain for a given enclosure. http://www.trueaudio.com/about_5.htm#Automobile%20Modeling

I think they simply add the SPL numbers from each speaker together.

You know, each speaker does 44.5 dB by itself, so four times 44.5 dB is ...
