Re: need helpwith build

OK, here is how it models in WinIsd, You will need a high pass filter at around 35 Hz to prevent over-excursion.
I would suggest a slot port to minimise chuffing. The size and length will depend on your intended box size.

Bill I think the OP already has this as a car sub and wants to make a HT sub. It needs to be tuned much lower.
Also take a look at the box volume on the WinISD page you displayed, it is less than one cu.ft. The OP is not at liberty to change the volume if he still wants this nice looking FR.
What you displayed is closer to WinISD's first suggested alignment. However if you play around it to get a tuning of 20hz the efficiency reduces but with steep high and low pass filters you get a workable HT sub alignment (even better with room gain) in a 2.25 cu ft which vastly reduces airspeed and allows decent slot port folding as well as adequate infrasonics. This is the reason for the design I suggested in my earlier posts

You're right, I did try a 3dB extended bass shelf alignment but with only 15mm of cone excursion I wasn't sure if that would give any real benefits.

If you really want to build a new sub from this driver why not read my posts 4 and 5 again carefully and see whether you can make a start from there. If there is anything you don't understand there or you would like me to give more details I'll be glad to do so.

Re: need helpwith build

First off what do you prefer in a Subwoofer? Is loudness your main need or would you like it to go really low in frequency (that is deep deep bass) ?
What size of box are you ready to accept, up to 10 or 11cuft? Do you mostly listen to music or watch movies?
This will help to define the design. Also since you say you don't know much about these things (who does) , would you rather follow directions on how to build it or use this as a learning process.? If want to learn you've got to download the latest version of WinISD to get started. It's not so hard, before you know it you'll know it LOL.
