    Greetings,

    I have a small, 10" sub and am thinking of trying it in a larger enclosure to improve performance. I downloaded WinISD Pro, but it asks for more specs than I was provided. Can anyone give me a hand? The specs I received are as follows.

    Revc (OHM) 3.59
    Fs (Hz.) 28.432
    Sd (m sq. M) 35.4
    Vas (Ltr.) 53.687
    Cms (uM/N) 301.699
    Mms (gram) 103.859
    BL (Tesla*M) 13.865
    Qms 5.956
    Qes 0.346
    Qts 0.327
    No (%) 0.344
    SPLo (dB/W-M) 87.389

    Thanks for your help.

    Just plugging the Vas, Qts, & Fs into ISD ONLINE, and came up with a 14.61 liter sealed enclosure, or a 26.84 liter ported enclosure tuned to 35.24 Hz (a 3" diameter port cut to 14" would work)

    What size of box is it in now?

    I don't know the exact size of the enclosure now. I'd guess it's about 11x15x15 or so. Ported, but I don't know how long it is. I'll check those tonight.

    Nope, this is the sub out of my powered sub at home. The manufacturer was nice enough to send me the specs. It's the 10 from HTD.

    Hey, it's always good to hear from a fellow KC guy.

    The slot-ported version is newer than mine. Mine has 2 round ports. When I emailed them they said it would work better in a larger box, but never told me anything specific and only gave me the specs. I'm not planning on keeping this thing forever, I just thought I might be able to improve it a bit.
