Quarter Wave Theory for Building Walls

9 years 10 months ago #1 by DiscussBot

The 1/4 Wave or ABCD Theory was a big fad in SPL for quite some time, especially in walled subwoofer systems. With this article I hope to explain what it is, how to calculate it and you can draw your own conclussion from there.

So then this would be the distance from a tunned port or just a sealed enclosure?

Its the relationship between the front of the speaker cone and the back of it, in a ported wall type enclosure.
Using this theory, you can calculate an "ideal" tuning frequency, which gives you a starting point for testing.
