Volt 6 and 8 ported and 10 isn't

  1. I have two questions, first is why are the Volt 6 and Volt 8 ported and the Volt 10 isn't ported. I thought they would have the same setup just smaller driver.

    If using Volt 6 or 8 as atmos, can you turn the box on its side and point at the MLP? Or would that not be good, I see no difference, but thought I'd ask. Or don't you need a port if you are using them for atmos?
  2. The Volt-6 and 8 need to be ported in order to hit 80Hz. The driver used in the Volt-10 can do it without being ported (though your certainly free to build a ported enclosure for greater bass extension and output). The Volt-6 and Volt-8 atmos flatpacks give up some bass extension for the sealed atmos flatpacks and are best crossed over at or above 120hz.

    The Volts can sit upright or sideways, or tilted any angle at all really, the dispersion from those drivers are conical in shape so the rotation of the enclosure does not matter.
