Think so? Awesome! That's an improvement. I still hear some buzzing from the pods when I ran the test tone, but I didn't get much chance to try anything else. I had to get those deadened before it got dark, which it will by the time I'm off work.Looks like it pulled some reasonable out of the pods.
Ooooh, interesting! So, looking at the waterfall that I posted, time is the Z axis, so are we looking for the areas where the "front" of the graph if more forward than the rest, showing the sound is carrying longer?The spectrogram might show this better but both are 3d plots. The show freq vs spl vs time. So when you play the sweep you expect the speaker to play the freq and stop. Any additional energy present after is cause by some type of resonance. Kinda like tapping on a sheet of metal and hearing the ring. Or like some musical instruments like symbols.
Oh I'm sure they are. They're just an easy plug-and-play (with slight dash modification) option to add some kind of enclosure. Standard in these Jeeps the speakers are free air. Not even IB, just free air suspended in brackets. It's awful.That looks a lot better with the deadener! Far smoother response
I will also say that you have what look like 5” drivers in enclosures that are way too small…
most 5” I’ve modelled are roughly 2.5l ish… grab a 2l bottle of coke and then compare to your pods volume, the sound will be very compromised in those for me
MaybeWould there be any benefit to deadening the outside of these as well? I have CLD I can spare.
However if the resonance is somewhere else, then apply it there.There's still some resonance, I think. Still buzzes a bit on some notes.
That's certainly the sticking point. Something is eating up that frequency. It's better, certainly, but finding it....Maybe

But how to find it usually the crux of the problem.
🤣🤣🤣 You likely aren't wrong. I do listen and enjoy, but while I try not to be overly nitpicky I do want it to be the best I can get it, factoring in diminishing returns.I think you need to do more of this.
I wonder if you're testing yourself into a hole.
Alright, that's what I'll work with.If you're evaling a single driver you should mute the others. Once the issue is resolved you can bring back in the other drivers and make sure they're in phase.
Best you can do to those pods is deaden them, add some poly fill, and make sure the speaker and speaker wire are sealed up tight. You can try bringing the response down above 200 to reduce the null a bit.
