RE: Help Needed Selecting The Right Hi-Efficiency Subwoofer

a good horn will boost the output of a woofer by as much as 10 db but it does not change the efficiency of the woofer itself (no box does). So a sub woofer by design is going to be a high mass device so the the resonant point will be low that is the intention of the design,you cannot make a 78 gram cone driver into a sub woofer. Sorry if I generated any confusion. This means that you need to take into account the quantity of bass that you want to generate and choose a design which will get you where you want to be so far as the bass output goes.
