i just tested the dual chamber abc box and best hit frequency in my apartment with both the tangbands getting 30 rms each it hit 104 db at 64 hz from almost three feet away and that was without distortion because i didnt want to risk anything with these speakers not being broke in yet

Heres the impedance chart if you wanna compare my spl results with his readings in the same box...but I just realized I had my selective tone button on when i did these readings on the subs its basically a bass boost and tweeter boost so keep than in mind...the reciever is an onkyo 424

i think with my triple chamber abc i can get rid of that impedance hump and that woulld add alot of spl and smooth out the sound even better

i just made another discovery guys. I listened to where i measured my subs at and then went about another three feet from the box and sat at my computer chair which was on a high plane then where i measured at about 3 ft. and guess what? The spl is 4 db louder on the same piece of music at my computer seat as it was at 3 ft away on my knees if im right 64 hz should now read out to 108 db. Im going to do other experiments to make sure its the distance and plane making the spl rise 4 db. By the way the box is on its side standing length wise.

I just remeasured things and i think another speaker playing was adding that 4 db extra so disreguard that 4 db gain but i did find out that cutting the distance in half does increase the db by 3 db as said in articles i have read
