    Just another wild guess: But it sounds as if you mean using an infinite baffle loudspeaker driver (or drive unit) from a car by putting it into a box instead of using the car itself as a baffle?
    By "infinite baffle" I'm not talking about a closed box. Which is not an infinite baffle and should never have been called that in the first place.

    Agreed.

    I can't really make out what is meant by the original poster at all although I've got a couple of half ideas. Can we have some more info as to what you're trying to achieve please? :)

    It all depends on the driver in question, some you can some you can't.

    Free air is actually a term held by Kicker.

    IB or Infinite Baffle can be achived both in the home or in the car.

    I will need to know:

    a) What driver make/model it is?
    b) Where it is going to be used?

    Before I can properly answer the question.
