    I am interested in building an infinite baffle setup. I need either a book or webpage that gives some info like size of enclosure and what specs I should look at when picking a driver. Also what about using an aperiodic membrane? I have heard of people using Infinte Baffle/Free Air setups in cars with this. What is the purpose of the membrane?

    Let's see, if you look at the bottom of my post, you'll probably find something of interest.

    You won't need the Aperiodic plugs.....

    I got a Question if you guys don't mind. What is if any the advantage of a IB system compared to a sealed or ported enclosure.

    The advantage to an IB is that there is no 'box', therefore no box sound [​IMG]

    There needs to be complete isolation between the front and rear waves, otherwise cancellation will occur.
