Not all woofers are created equal.

So, some have larger surrounds, etc making the effective cone area less.

You need to go by the effective cone area for that woofer x its xmax, to get linear displacement. "cubic liters of air"

Displacement is what we are looking for in bass. The more displacement there is = the more air being moved. Since bass is all about moving air, that means you will be louder.

If everything is done correctly.

The very first thing I look at in a woofer is displacement, then bl, the qts,qes, then power.

Hope i didnt confuse anyone.

Im done for now.
