    Hi,

    Could I get a suggested box size for a Stryke SAE1204 (very similar to Dayton DVC 12") in a sealed alignment?

    This sub will be used for music only in a mid size room, but the room has like 20 foot ceilings!

    It will be blended with Dennis Murphy's MBOW1 design, basically very similar to an AV1, but with a Hipiqhuon OW1 tweeter instead of the Gr-research tweet. . .

    What's the "optimum" Q for a sealed box again?

    Thanks-

    Wes

    A Qtc of .707 is "maximally flat", giving the lowest F3 possible for a driver without a transient-degrading hump in response at Fc. Looks like a Vb of about 32L for this driver.
    "Optimum", however, can be pretty subjective...some find much lower Qtc's (and bigger boxes) better for music. I wouldn't argue. [​IMG]
