So I have been reading up on group delay for subwoofers. I have been specifically reading about the Dayton Audio HO 10"
I read that anything under 25ms for a peak delay is "good", but what is really good? For example, in a sealed box with group delay under 6ms and a vented enclosure under 19ms, is there an audible distinction between the two? What is a good goal for good to great SQ?
now granted this is peak group delay, i understand that it will become less higher up in the frequency range but what about the lower frequency range?
If im trying to get more output and better efficiency, am i sacrificing sq and that "tight" sound even though group delay is under 25ms? What is exceptable and what is sloppy? I hope I am making sense here.
