Total Q factor Qts correction
Resistors, cables or a coils that are being used to connect a loudspeaker show a DC resistance. This DC resistance has an influence on total Q facto Qts and, therefore, needs to be considered. The following calculator makes it a little bit easier for you; the result is automatically entered into to calculator at the top.
