Hi, I'm an amature when it comes to pa. And dj work so bare with me if I say anything stupid, IM just trying to learn.
I have been djing for a few years now and have recently bought a subwoofer system for my car. I noticed that the frequency response of my car suborder system is far flatter in the lower 40Hz and below range than my pa. Subs. I have several jbl 2241h drivers that I put into boxes I've made myself, so I understand that part of the problem could be that my box isn't properly tuned or something like that. I used the specs that jbl provides on the PDF sheet on there website to make the boxes as best as I could. I used the correct internal volume vent area and vent depth, and added fiberglass insulation.
My main question is, were the 2241 drivers ever meant to have a flat response under 40 hz?. were they ever meant to be used at frequencies as low as 31hz? The song that I was listening to when I noticed this was delusional by tech n9ne (probably not this forums favorite music genre I know), Im not sure exactly what frequency the bass drops down to but perhaps someone here who has a good ear could check it out on youtube.
Im not concerned about the lowest note on that song, because it seems to just rattle stuff in my car and is only barely audible. Im not concerned about these frequencies when IM running PA. but I think it would improve my dj system. Thanks in advance and please understand im an amature.
