Hey, folks. You may have seen my other thread on ASR (for those who are members there) gauging interest in a "budget subwoofer shootout" using the CEA-2010 standard. Based on the positive feedback, I ordered (5) 10-inch powered subwoofers.\n\nAfter conducting the tests I thought "Hey, this wasn't so bad. I could do this for other subs". And thus, the evolution of a simple shootout to what I plan and hope will turn in to a master database of subwoofer testing.\n\nFirst, however, I think it is important for me to lay the groundwork for this testing and provide some insight in to my testing setup and methods. Therefore, I have created the video below as my kickoff. I think some insight in to this will help people understand just exactly what is being tested and how the results are compartmentalized for sharing with the world.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThat's it. Below is the link to my google sheet where I will be keeping all of this information update. I hope you all enjoy.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nErin's Master Sheet of CEA-2010 Results:\nhttps:\/\/www.erinsaudiocorner.com\/loudspeakers\/cea-2010_subwoofer_testing\/\n\nhttps:\/\/docs.google.com\/spreadsheets\/d\/18bz7z-xIlRJsC-bw6k4mHkuwv_uiGAMyEhgrTkjwdXc\/edit?usp=sharing\n\n\nIf you have a question, read the notes. They are there for a reason and may answer your question. If you want x\/y\/z... I probably won't provide it. I know, that sounds rude. But I want to keep this simple. I have added and removed countless formulas, sheets, and graphs all because I thought "yea, it would be cool to have but the average person won't need it and they'll get confused". Remember, the people who are likely to pay attention to these numbers may not care about all the fun things you can do with the data. They just want the results.\n\nI initially had A & B on the same sheet. I thought it would be easy to navigate and understand. I sent it to some friends who aren't familiar with the specs and they were confused because I had so many little "notes" because A & B don't have the same frequency set. So, I split the results out to separate sheets.\n\nAlso, read the Foreword. It explains the method, the difference between A & B and why I will or will not provide certain data.\n\n\nContribute:\nIf you like what you see here and want to help me keep it going, please consider donating or purchasing a shirt via my Contribute page located here. So, donations help me pay for new items to test, hardware to build test rigs (some speakers require different test stands), miscellaneous items and costs of the site's server space and bandwidth. All of which I otherwise pay out of pocket. So, if you can help chip in a few bucks, know that it's very much appreciated. I've reached out to various manufacturers to ask for test samples for review (with the promise to send them back). So far, none have even replied. Or, if you have a subwoofer you'd like to have tested, please contact me. If you can cover shipping both ways that would be great but maybe with enough donations we can take care of that or help offset the costs.
