Any thoughts? opinions? the only difference I see is you could gain a tad bit of airspace by not having dividers inside the box.
I just thought of another reason to use the dividers... They act as braces and prevent the walls of the box fom flexing. This would be more important in a large enclosure (longer pieces flex easier than short ones) or in an enclosure made of thinner/weaker material like 5/8" particleboard as opposed to 3/4" MDF.the only difference I see is you could gain a tad bit of airspace by not having dividers inside the box.
Yeah I thought about this before i posted and that was one thing that came to mind. But the subwoofers I am going to be running are IB capable, and also the will be given a small enclosure. .5 cu. ft. each to be exact. So if I have a total of three drivers and one cuts out that means the others get approx. .75 cu. ft each.. I dont see them being in any danger..
However circut is correct about damaged speakers. there are very few speakers that are capable of overcoming this issue but they come with a heavy price.
