Does it matter where the "airhole" for the speaker is placed? Answered
I'm building my own speaker at the moment with some old computer speakers. And I am rebuilding the frame (originally plastic) with MFD (8mm thick). The measurements of both cases are the same as I read somewhere that that is a factor which affects the sound
The airhole on the original plastic case was on the left upperside of where the speaker is. But in my design it would be nicer if the airhole comes either out the back or the front but down below. So my question is if I place the airhole somewhere else does it affect the sound?
Note that I am not one of those people who notices the slightest quality decrease. I'm just a guy who enjoys his music be it on 10 dollar speakers or one hunderd dollar speakers.
P.S. I know the hole isn't for air but I didn't know what else to call it. If you can give me the correct term that is a bonus :)
