  1. I just ordered two 12" Alpine Type R SWR-12D4 and a Hifonics Brutus Elite 2000.1. I need to build a box to fit in a 2000 Ford Taurus. I am fairly new to the car audio scene so I don't know how many hz to tune the box to or how hard it is. Just looking for a cut list and any suggestions on how I should build this.
  2. Alright so I have an aq3500 playing at 1 ohm (4300 w rms) on 1 fi sp4 18 dual 2 sub. I'm looking for the a quality sounding box with some deep bass the will get DOWN when I wanna demo. This is for a daily set up, no competitions. Just wanna sound clean and loud (deep). I have 8 total cu ft to play with. Box options: big ported box, 4th order bandpass, or 6th order bandpass. What box would sound good, hit hard, and hit the lows like no other?
  3. I have 2 Kenwood 12" 3013ps 1200 Watt Subwoofers. I was wondering. Which would sound the best? Vented or sealed?
  4. I need to make a box for 3 6.5'' pioneer woofers. I have a cardboard box for them right now (LOL) and they slam pretty good. The only downfall is that the woofers are destroying the box. Any suggestions on dimensions for the box? Heres the current one:
  5. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum. I am doing a simple install in a 2000 Honda accord coupe. I have one of the older model jbl gto 1200 watt mono block amps with a 4ga run from the batt. With no light dimming. And I have an inexpensive Sony head unit running through an alpine ktp445u amp to my highs and mids which are memphis mclass 6.5s in front & 6x9in the back. My sub is a single sundown sa-12 and is seeing roughly 800 watts from that amp. But all that to get to the heart of the issue. I need a box. Or blue prints at least. I want the best box for a mixture of sound quality first but also some spl. here are some basic space parameters. height:15" or less Width:30" or less. Depth: variable. Up to 25" I've read the SA-12 performs best with about 2-2.5 cu. ft tuned to about 35hz but I have never build a box before, so I definitely need some guidance. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, this is my first time posting on here. I am getting a two RE Audio SEx10D4's and I am hoping if someone could help me design a box for them. I am going to be running it off a Planet Audio AP3000D amp at 4 ohms's. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
  7. I got 2 12 Rockford Fosgate P3 subs this type http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rockford-Fosgate-Punch-P3D412-1-Way-12-Car-Subwoofer-/271209489945?pt=Car_Subwoofers_Enclosures&hash=item3f25586619 and wondering whats the best prefab box for this, are Probox suberbass a bad idea? I know custom box best but dont really know anyone that cna build one and also i dont know how plz can u help
  8. So I've finished removing my old 4th order, and I'm about to set up a new one. I normally mount the woofers side firing, perpendicular to the port. This has always worked for me. I'm about to install my new enclosure, and I was thinking about mounting the woofers up firing, still perpendicular to the port. If mounted this way, the woofers would rest on the same plane as the bottom panel of the port. What I mean is the woofers would share the same panel as the bottom of the port. I do not see a reason that this wouldn't work, because it's the same mounting strategy only rotated 90 degrees. It's just that I've never seen it done this way before, and I don't want to have to keep moving panels. In fact I've looked for photos and cannot find any where the woofers are mounted in this fashion, so I'm assuming it doesn't work and I'm missing something. Does anyone have any idea if this would work in practice? If not, what am I missing?
  9. does anyone know the Woofer Displacement for the Orion Hcca 15.4? I am having trouble finding that and the Cubic feet for ported but somewhere on this forum I found someone say 3.5 cubic feet so I guess that's ok but I cant seem to find the woofer displacement anywhere please help! thanks
  10. This is my first time designing a box i want a second opinion on my design. the thing that im unsure of is my port area per foot. Im going to be running a fi bl 15 fully loaded on a Soundstream Rubi 2500 in a 92 toyota 4runner.
  11. Looking for designs and measurments for a custom box for a 2008 chevy silverado regular cab. Not much room behind the seat but the subs are pioneer champion 10's dont need an amp space because its under the seat. Port or sealed dont matter i just want it loud to piss people off but i want to be able to understand the music and the middle console needs to fold up. But any thing will help.
  12. Doing a temporary setup in a '98 Jeep Cherokee Sport using an 18" FI BTL (UFO motor). The music I listen to varies quite often but usually rap, hip-hop etc. Basically anything with bass and I love the lows. I have a feeling my net is a little on the low side and my port area per foot also seems like it may be on the small side. Not really sure where abouts I should tune for this. Keep in mind, not competing, not demoing I just want a daily setup for now I have been bassless for over a month now as I aquire pieces for the final build (2 18" n2's either on a nendo 5500 or AQ 3500 in which I already have the 3500 and the n2's..still needing alt, batt bank, 1/0 and possibly a new HU) Oh and I fail with images, bare with me please lol.
  13. So me and my uncle are building a wall enclosure in the back of a 1997 expedition, and we made a little mistake of making the box 18 inches long when I feel it should be way longer so I can tune it to 29-31 hertz, we already glew'd the sides bottom and back together but we were curious if it's possible we could glue/caulk or anything to add on more wood to the sheet if it's possible, I was told it would fuck with the frequency and told it would work if done right, right now I can only tune the box to 35 hertz when I'm trying get lower This is how the box looks right now, there is a opening in the back for plexy glass to be installed.
  14. Hey everyone! So I've got 2 kicker L7 15's that I'm running on a kicker zx2500.1 @ 2 ohms in my small suv. Basically I need advice for the new box I'm building based on my habits and the power I'm putting to them -This set up is for my daily driver (1998 4runner) and I listen to a lot of rap -I want them to pound and hit lows well when I turn em up -My maximum space in my trunk is: W:38in. x H:32in. x D:21in. so up to 12.56 cubic feet of gross volume -The box and port will be facing up. I'm considering doing the port back and on the bottom so I wont have to bend it -I'm planning on putting them together in a single chamber I know kicker recommends up to 6 cu. ft. of net volume per sub for these subs for "SPL/DeepBass" however I'm wondering with the power I'm putting to them if I should go smaller like around 4 or 5 cubic feet. Overall my questions are: -How many cubic feet should I make my box? -What frequency should I tune my box to? -Any other hints based on my needs? Thanks guys!
