OK, here's a fun question for all the speaker mod folks on this forum. What if? ....What if I measured the internal volume (sq. inches) of my existing cabs (which are smaller than the standard CW2 cabs) ....then determine how much internal volume I am missing because of my resized (smaller cabs) vs. the standard CW2 cab. Once I get this number, build an extra extension to my existing cab using tis number to get my cabs up to the standard size of a CW2 cab. Obviously, my cabs are not going to be the exact width of the standard CW2 cab but they would have the SAME internal volume just a bit narrower and taller. I could cut a piece out of the bottom of my existing against the back of the speaker and that would act as the SHELF to lead to (3) rectangular bass ports just like on the standard CW2 cabs. See pic. Yes, I know, this is sort of a crazy idea, but it's a way to potentially reuse these cabs without having to trash them. JUst curious if anyone with experience in designing and building cabs would care to pipe in on the potential of this idea? Obviously, the way these speakers perform now are not working for me because there is not enough internal volume for the bass response, thus the bass response suck.
My thought process here is that it would be way easier to build cab extensions to my existing speakers than to re-build from scratch. THoughts? Criticisms? Tips?
