  • How to determine the correct enclosure size?

    Posted by jbmccann on August 27, 2020 at 9:04 am

    Hi there. Just a quick question about determining the correct enclosure size for speaker drivers.

    In the specs of the speaker drivers I am using (Dayton Audio ND91-8) the recommended sealed volume is 0.02 ft³ and the vented volume is 0.04 ft³. 
    Since I am using two drivers, is it as simple as multiplying by 2, so the sealed volume should be 0.04 ft³?

    Also, is it better if the enclosure is divided in two, so each driver has its own compartment?

    And finally, is the volume of the enclosure calculated in “free” air, in so that only the volume of air counts. So one would have to take into account the space used up by amp cards, battery packs and the speaker drivers themselves?
    Or is it calculated so that the needed volume is just the outline of the inside of the speaker enclosure, regardless of what else is filling up the space.
