I'm building a box for an a/d/s/ 310px (first box build). Manual recommends a 1.0 cubic foot sealed enclosure. However, the manual doesn't give a spec for the driver's displacement. Could it be that you're supposed to build a 1.0 cubic foot box, install the speaker, and the airspace left over is what the driver wants. Yeah, I doubt it too.
Is there any method/rule of thumb for calculating speaker displacement?
Or: does anyone happen to know what the displacement of the 310px is?
BCAE says to wrap the speaker in plastic, dunk it in a full bucket of water. Whatever it takes to refill the bucket is your displacement figure.
Can't bring myself to dunk a $500 speaker in water!
