### 12π basshorn sub

First, we measured impedance and found Zmin to be 2.8Ω. So 16.7v is required for 100 watts, 23.7v for 200 watts, 33.5v for 400 watts, 47.3v for 800 watts and 66.9v for 1600 watts.

### 12π impedance

Next, we measured output at 28.3v. Since we measured 10 meters away, the values correspond to 2.83v/1M.

The blue line is SPL, and the violet line shows distortion. Since measurement was taken at 10 meters, add 20dB to find SPL at 1 meter. With 100 watts input, the 10 meter measurement works out the same as 1 watt input measured at a distance of 1 meter.

### 12π response at 10 meters with 28.3v input (2.83v/1M)

From this, we perform an inverse FFT to obtain impulse and step response:

### 12π Impulse Response

### 12π Step Response

Measurement at 100 watts:

### 12π response at 10 meters with 16.7v (100w) input (1W/1M)

Measurement at 200 watts:

### 12π response at 10 meters with 23.7v (200w) input

Measurement at 400 watts:

### 12π response at 10 meters with 33.5v (400w) input

Measurement at 800 watts:

### 12π response at 10 meters with 47.3v (800w) input

Measurement at 1600 watts:

### 12π response at 10 meters with 66.9v (1600w) input
