When you make some braces in your subwoofer box, does this matter HOW they are and HOW they are placed? In a certain way, Im pretty sure that yes. However... in order to not compromise at all maximum output, are there any rules to follow in order to avoid any loss in output? For example, does a lot of braces can limit more ouput because of air passage restriction than a sub with just a few braces? Or does it really less matter than port placement, where you have to really pay attention to not place them too much near a wall of the enclosure or near the driver. Is it possible to loose for example one dB because you doesn't allow enough airspace in the braces and/or between the braces? Lots of questions to be answered, I hope that you know in general what I want to ask Thank you in advance! P.S.: If you can explain more with physics laws and things, I would be really interested as this would reinforce more your theory!
