Speaker 4 Ohm Bass Reflex

£8.16 Inc. Vat

Availability: In stock SKU: 103543


Bass reflex speakers compatible with Loksound V4 onwards sound decoders and others.

4 Ohm, 1watt. 22mm x 58mm x 9.3mm.

Our famous Bass reflex speakers are custom designed to enhance low frequency locomotive sounds (ideal for either Diesel or Steam). The speaker impedance has been designed to match that required by the Loksound range of sound decoders (4 ohm), and can be used to directly replace the standard speakers without any other considerations.

This unit is based on a 40 x 20 speaker, measures 58mm x 22mm overall, and is a slim 9mm deep.

Bass Reflex, Technical theory of operation.

In contrast to placing a chamber on the back of the speaker which is (almost) air tight, a bass reflex system has a vent engineered into the case, which consists of an opening, generally backed with a pipe or duct of circular or rectangular cross section. The air mass in this opening resonates with the “springyness” of the air inside the enclosure in exactly the same fashion as air in a bottle produces a low frequency sound when a current of air is directed across the opening (try it, it’s fun!). The frequency at which the box/port system resonates, known as the is determined by the cross sectional area and length of the duct and the volume of air inside the enclosure. This permits a lower frequency sound to be produced by a smaller speaker than could otherwise do so. The design type augments the bass response of the speaker, and can extend the frequency response of the speaker/enclosure combination to below the range the speaker would reproduce in a sealed box. The enclosure resonance has a secondary benefit in that it limits cone movement in a band of frequencies centred around the tuned frequency, reducing distortion in that frequency range.
