      I wonder how the PC-83 would work with something like this since the driver used in this video is no longer available.

      I really like the PC83.  Just don’t expect much bass from it. Having said that, I’, sure it would do great in a build like this.  But I would keep it sealed.  It does appear the guy in the video doesn’t really know how to tune a speaker, but just put the ports in to make it look cool. That is what it appears at least.

      Did you check the link under the video. You’ll have to use the translate feature on your browser.

      There’s a couple of Excel files on that page, about 1/3 the way down, where a link says “It is a rough calculation”.

      Based on the PC83-4 optimum box of ~0.18 CF, a 1.5″Dx6.6″L port will give a Fport of 58.6 Hz and a F3 of 49.3 Hz. Using that Excel sheet, a 0.25 CF box with 4 1″Dx9″L ports will resonate at 54.2 Hz.

      From what I can tell by unlocking and unhiding all the cells, and translating everything, this is purely based on box volume and ports, no driver information is used.

      I have to look at the second xls file yet. Interesting and baffling at the same time.
