    4th order 15 not hitting like its supposed to

    99% of the time it's not the sub, it's the box

    At a glance it doesn't look like it would be due to any funky loading. @Joe X helps a lot with box designs

    The thing is with WinISD, almost no one uses it right. It gives a prediction of a response based on an open air environment. i.e. sitting on the floor in a field. If you design something there, you need to plot cabin gain and integrate that. You'll also need to take into account where it's located in the vehicle and if any surrounding areas can contribute to cancellation or constructive interference. Regarding ports, the whole port velocity thing is garbage. Throw it out. It doesn't take into account the effects of the laminar sublayer - which is where air in the port flowing closer to the surface of the wood moves slower than it does in the middle. It also doesn't take into account the effect of port diameter vs. air velocity. A larger port will allow for a higher air velocity before any audible chuffing occurs. Seriously. More port, and a larger ported section. All of your sound output from a 4th comes from the port. Let it breathe. Conceptually, a 4th order is a ported side for output with a sealed side to control the mechanical movement of the cone. You're essentially running a 15" driver in a 2cuft ported box. Still would like a sketch of the box

    Also could you post a sketch or diagram of how everything is laid out?

    At a glance, you may want a larger ported section You'll also want to err on the side of more port area. Particularly if it's only 2" wide

    Proper password practices

    Heh. Interesting turn of events Got a spam email from someone claiming one of my old p/w was stolen and wanted an ransom. Literally listed my password in the subject line. Turns out One of the forums I'm on got hacked right before I changed everything lol
  7. Phone spam. Jesus fucking christ.... 20-30 calls a day from various spoofed numbers. Can't block them because it's always another number. I just can't even. No matter how many times I either ignore it, intentionally waste their time, or ask to be removed from the call list, they don't quit. Really wish there was a way to block calls from anyone not on my contacts cause I'm about to turn off calling altogether. This is shit
