Sound down a tube (eg shotgun mic)

  1. Dec 22, 2011 #1
    I want to be able to figure out how sound works down a tube.

    Leading to me being able to calculate where I should place slits on a tube and at what size given a tube diameter (and length if necessary) to make a good shotgun mic tube.

    The slits allow wave cancellation.

    So there is some internal reflection and also diffraction going on.. would like some kind of pointer on this.

    edit: did find this stating slit pattern is not important, but diameter is. Etc.
