    HTF subwoofer gurus,
    I have been anally attacking every pinhole sized leak on my Contrabass subwoofer, I have it narrowned down to one pinhole sized leak and I will get rid of that one tomorrow since I am tired of unbolting dozens of hex bolts.

    I got to thinking about how a passive radiator subwoofer works and perhaps my labors will be fruitless because it seems to me that if anything perhaps all a pinhole sized leak will limit the PRs motion during extreme peaks.

    Usually, small leaks don't make a bit of difference.
