✍ Speaker enclosure resistance vent

3D printed

This a simple hack of a resistor vent (https://www.youmagine.com/tca/).The basic idea is to build a small speaker enclosure and use a resistance vent to minimize the boomimg effect that the small box imposes on the final frequency response.

More details here: http://diyaudioprojects.com/Technical/Aperiodic/

Typically these resistors have 10cm diameter. The default STL's are for a 8cm hole, but you can tailor it using the SCAD file attached (see end of page).

Happy hacking!
