Cool; obviously you’re a much more established engineer of renown & contribution than Leach & Klippel

Actually, I put more trust in Eminence that has made loudspeakers for nearly 60 years, in addition to my own measured results through LIMP. However, if you can show me a measured result of an Le response from 100 Hz down I will stand corrected.

Are you game? LOL

That is a Reflex.

Le

This is the voice coil inductance measured in millihenries (mH). The industry standard is to measure inductance at 1,000 Hz. As frequencies get higher there will be a rise in impedance above Re. This is because the voice coil is acting as an inductor. Consequently, the impedance of a speaker is not a fixed resistance, but can be represented as a curve that changes as the input frequency changes. Maximum impedance (Zmax) occurs at Fs.



In which, I stated...

The info from Eminence is correct but it isn't the whole story re motor behaviour as explained in the info Toasty has linked to. It appears it becomes relevant when Le is of a similar or higher value than Re as is the case in some large VC drivers.

That does not play a factor when you are using a tuned port at 40 Hz - 50 Hz as snowflake is considering. The port is going to activate at the tuning frequency. 

I understand where you are coming from. However, you are still looking at things from a Horn's perspective. 

Reflex follows a different principal. Once you port a horn to extend the low frequency response, you are essentially using a combination of a horn and reflex box. By doing so, any frequencies that falls within the port's tuning needs to follow the reflex topology in order to  achieve optimum results. Hence VAS, fs and, Qts are the vital numbers.

Fs Qts and Vas can be used to determine reflex alignments that have a desired response. But take the horn away from my design and sim it as a vented rear chamber and you get a huge peak at the port frequency - it's not any recognised alignment. So what use are t/s parameters selecting a driver for a ported horn?

All of Klippel’s work is based on sealed and ported enclosures you might realise that if you read any of it

Slot ports mostly have an advantage above round ports because they are using the cabinet walls and often have larger cross section (and length). For equal cross section I personally prefer round ports with large flares. For example the Intertechnik Jetset series.

I've never seen a flared port bigger than 100mm though and with these drivers need more than that.

You can use more, but I agree, with large drivers the advantage is shifting to slot port, also much cheaper.
