Figure 16. Estimated displacement (𝜇m) of audio-related structures (top graph) and automotive structures (bottom graph). Mean of five measurements corrected for zero vibration reference (displacement zero reference = 1 𝜂m, acceleration zero reference = 394.8 𝜇m/s²).


Note: Research has shown that a 3/4" MDF plate 40 x 18 inches, when excited by a loudspeaker transducer, results in a vibration displacement of 229 𝜇m. Increasing the same plate to 2-1/4" results in a vibration displacement of 18 𝜇m. The subwoofer enclosure in the Magic Bus is 3" thick Baltic Birch. The front monitor baffle is a multi-layer combination of 1" MDF, 0.375" fiberglass, 0.125" steel, and 0.125" EAR damping material (constrained layer between MDF and steel).

Figure 6. RMS Power (-3 dB Pink Noise) and SPL (unweighted, 1 sec averaging) versus volume setting. At about 97 dB, the power consumption is about 250 Wrms, scarcely above Class A operation. The Magic Bus is capable (at a volume setting of 46) of 4307 Wrms into 4.22 Ω, thus the peak power output is 8614 W !!

Figure 14. Raw accelerometer data for automobile structures. Each trace is the mean of five measurements. Brown represents accelerometer resting on concrete floor (zero vibration baseline). Black is the seat base, blue is side window glass, and orange is the windshield. Notice that the subwoofer vibration level (from Figure 13) is better than the seat base! Clearly, enclosure isolation works!

Figure 13. Raw accelerometer data for audio structures. Each trace is the mean of five measurements. Brown represents accelerometer resting on concrete floor (zero vibration baseline). Violet is subwoofer, green is left door panel, and red is left front monitor. Notice that subwoofer vibration above 100 Hz overlays the baseline!
