  1. Hey guys im doing my first build 3 skar evl 15s dvc 2ohm on a ts 3.5 I was gonna do a flat wall but everyone I know personally who does comps says if this is for me anf not for comps I need to do a fourth order cause it's more musical and has more bandwidth i wanna do demos but really i just love bass I've tried bass box 6 and win isd and on regular ported walls it wasnt a problem to get good response on the graph but when I try it with the 4th order calc no matter what i do I cant get the tuning right i want it tuned where its peaking between 32 and 55 Hz tops I don't know a bunch about it all i know is i love bass and I am a noob to all competitors I've read over an hour a day for 9 months and finally got the basics but still know nothing theres so much to learn but im dedicated i got everything for it ho alt batts subs amp and all power cable ran but cant build the box correctly cause i cant do the specs and don't wanna mess up the subs from doing it wrong I know it's time consuming and has no benefit to you but if someone could please help id be eternally grateful the box max external specs are 42d 36h 40w so it leaves plenty of room for the 2:1. And the subs rec enclosure are 3.5-3.75 sealed 3.5-4.0. Ported thanks so much for even reading this ridiculously long post if someone would help I will build and show results so they can know there time wasnt wasted -hooplah-
  2. I need help guys! Is there anyway possible someone could draw me up something on sketchup or something similar for two skar ma-8, they are recommended 1 cuft per sub tuned to 35hz, I have no real experience designing boxes and all help would be greatly appreciated
  3. Okay, so I have two d4 skar ma-8 and a skar rp1500, I have them in a box that was extremely successful with two DD audio 508's in them but it sounds horrible with the skars, I would very much appreciate if someone could maybe draw me something up to fit them, I'm going for a spl/daily build, maybe tuned to 35 hz?
  4. Just got a new enclosure design for 2 12 AB subs, the port is 3.5 inches wide. I showed a friend the design and he is said the port should be wider. What is the concept behind port size? Bigger louder? Smaller cleaner sound? Is it a calculation? Or is it just based on personal preference?
  5. Hey there, I have two 15" Earthquake DBXI subwoofers that are currently in a sealed enclosure and I'm looking to go ported. My car is a 2003 Monte carlo - My amp is an Alpine 1k - The trunk space available is 36" wide - 31" Deep - 16" Tall The subwoofers are 6 3/8" from the bottom of the mounting bracket to the bottom of the magnet if that helps I listen to a lot of rap (Gucci Mane, Future, etc) and I'm a huge fan of low bass (Decaf <3) but I'd still like to be able to handle mid range bass also Im not opposed to any style of box I Just want it to sound better Please let me know if you need any more info! Will appreciate any help someone can give!
  6. In regards to the image, here is my design for 2 warden 21" subs. Box is about 17.5 cubes total after displacement and some bracing. Port will be about 12" wide by 22.5" (internal dimensions) long about 33hz tuning (270" port area). So my question is, I can leave the spot underneath the port without a separator wall, or I can add a separator shown on the right. Aside from adding bracing to the box, would it lower port tuning a little? (in the thought of the air will hit the divider and move up, as if adding some port length?) If the subs allow I may make the port slightly longer, but tuning would max go to 31hz even if i add 6 inches internally to the port. So I dont think I will extend it if the box allows. The port will be pretty close to both woofers. I intuitively don't think it'll affect port tuning, but would it cause any issues adding the separator almost up to the port? Or if anyone has some input on changing where the port goes. The sides are very close to the vehicle walls so a port to the side may not be the best. And there isnt room to port forward.
  7. Hello all, first post here on the forum. Needing a little help with a design for a ported enclosure. This will be my first ported enclosure build. Last week, i acquired two Alpine Type R 12s (SWR-1223D) dual 2 ohm voice coil..already in an Audio Enhancers brand pre-fab box from a kid for only $70 so it was a great deal! I have an Alpine MRX-M110 amp. First of all the box doesn't have enough airspace, it only has .92 cubic feet per chamber before displacement. Secondly, it is tuned to a whopping 43hertz! I got this info from their website. I mainly listen to rap, r&b, hiphop, alternative rock and a little pop. The subs are not performing very well on the low notes in the music im listening to so its got to go asap! I have a 95 blazer 4x4 4 door. I have room for 37.5" wide, 18' tall and 18" deep. I would like the new enclosure to have alot more airspace with a common chamber and common port, with a much lower tuning! Any and all help will be appreciated! Opinions and designs please?
  8. i just picked up some aa havoc 12s that i'm going to throw in my 2001 monte carlo. its going to be my first box build but i need some help with the design. i feel like the re box design site isn't too accurate and do not know how to use others so all help/designs will help. here's what i had measured from my trunk to work with, 34 inches wide, 15 inches tall, and 21 inches deep, but was kinda thinking i should double baffle the front and back? any help would be great, thanks!
  9. So a friend of mine just got 2 sa 8 v2's and has yet to build a box for them. the last box we made for him (for his HDC3 15) was made with RE box calc and from everything ive learned that is not the way to go. and i have a Macbook so i cant get torres or anything like that. Here is just some of the general info 2010 honda civic 4 door box is in the trunk 2 sa 8 v2's either a sae 1000D or scv 1500d for amp (he hasnt made up his mind yet) max box dimensions are 32 deep 26 wide and 17 height. here is the one major stipulation. For some reason he really wants a labyrinth port box (im assuming that means a multi folded slot port). for reasons im not really sure. basically he said he wants as loud as two 8's can get and still have a musical range. any ideas for something like this? he listens to alot of music that is mostly right around 35 to 45 hz range for the most part but then he likes to go low just to see the sub move basically. i suggested to him around 35ish to 38ish hz for tuning but he just said he wants loud (dont think he fully understands the tuning thing, not that i FULLY understand it either but i have a little better concept of it) the only thing i really dont understand is that he really wants this to be a "labyrinth" port box. any help would be awesome. and sorry for the long post i just wanted to go ahead and knock out alot of the information. Greg
  10. I designed a box for a Soundqubed HDC3 18 that will fit in the back of my Mazda pick up. It will be running off a Cadence 2500.1 (1200rms) with stock electrical but will be doing the big 3 very soon. Opinions? Here are the specs: 7.98Ft^3 Net Volume 32.74Hz tuning W- 50in D- 18in H- 23in Port- H- 16.5in W-6.75in Length- 23in 14in^2 of port area per foot Driver displacement is included w/ bracing
  11. Hey guys, I am building a box for my buddies SA-15 which he is having reconed by PSI and figured I would try my hand at an aero port. He wants the box tuned to about 35Hz and I have no idea how to do aero ports. *disregard the aero port input in torres. TIA for any help
  12. So I've had two Memphis 15's that I picked up about two years ago. They've fared well with my little AudioPipe APSM-1300. But alas, it's time to move on to bigger and better things. For about a year now I've been toying with the idea of using a pair of 18's as daily drivers. I've also wanted an excuse to try out Ampere Audio for just as long. Well, I've decided to take the plunge and do it. Before I move further ahead, I would like to request a review of my enclosure, as well as the driver and amplifier combination. Any feedback, criticism, well wishes, or physics/electronics lessons are greatly appreciated. Is this the beginnings of a poor design, or am I headed down the right path? Before you go any further, please make sure to read this, right here---> The enclosure design is not finished. I have not yet added the port or any gussets. The general specs: 2x PSI Audio Platform 1 18s with the "high performance" option Ampere Audio AA-1200.1 The enclosure (unfinished design): Designed to maximize volume usage in my 2005 Dodge Ram crew cab, while allowing me to still use the rear window for window purposes. ~30 cubic feet volume accounting for driver displacement, but not port and gusset displacement. I expect that the port and gusset displacement will put the enclosure volume right around 20 cubic feet which is where I really want to be.
  13. Hello, I want to run 2 PSI platform 1 12s on 2k, my voltage does not dip below 12.8 so i will be getting right around rated. I have a screenshot to show the upgrades, Biggest box i can fit is 34"wide 15" tall and 23" in length I would like for the box to be tuned so i can play slowed bass songs about as low as 26hz if the small space i have will allow it I would like a slot port design with the subs and port on the same side (center port) Thanks for looking and hopefully you can help me out! -Mike-
  14. hello, im pretty new to the car audio so i would REALLY like some help. i plan on building my first box for an 18 inch sub (i havent bought it yet just trying to figure everything out first) but i dont know how to figure out csf or how to tune a port, i drew a picture on paint to get a rough idea with what i want. would anyone be able to tell me what the csf is and what size my port should be (i would like it tuned to 33 htz) thanks for the help cant wait to get an 18" =) http://s1131.photobucket.com/user/nickricciotti/media/box.png.html
  15. I want to try out a different box and I would like some help with a design, last time I payed for a design and I really don't see the need to spend that kind of money! I have 2 Rockford Hx2 12's that have 1000 watt recones so I'll be running 2000 RMS in my Jeep Cherokee. All I listen to is decaf music and I love the lows so I want to get a box that can play as far below 30hz as I can get. My current box plays from 30hz to about 70hz so I want to try to get lower this time, hopefully not sacrificing too much of my high end. So any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
  16. So im going making a floor for my trunk but I want to make so i can install my 2 subs, amp and capacitor into it and put some plexi glass over the amp and capacitor with a led strip. The only problem I have is how exactly would i be able to brace and hold the underneath of the floor with equipment in it etc while having a suitable air flow and quality design. I have a 2005 mazda 3 hatchack and i will be taking out the spare tire and plastic trays in the trunk so its bare and allowing me the most space to utitlize for making a floor.
  17. A friend of mine just got is brothers sub that he had lying around. Its a RE Audio XXX 12 rated at 2000rms (not sure impedance but will check) and he wants to put it in his car. He has a 1200 wrms amp that he will be using and he wants it tuned around 36-40hz. On their site they say 2.2 cuft tuned to 34hz but with him under powering the sub how much bigger should the box be?
  18. i need someone to give me a ported box design for 2 kicker cvr 12 dual 2 ohm im kind of a noob and iv looked all over for a program that gave me specs and measurement but not eactly what i want i would like a box tuned to about 35hz with seperate chambers and the ports in the center of the box im limited to 13 high by 42 wide
  19. Hey guys hope everything going well. A buddy of mine wants me to seal off his civic soon and build a box so here I am. If any of you read the thread I posted a little bit back the kid got the SA-15 and box for cheap and they both had this tar crap all over it. It look like the coated the underside of the cone and some of the coil/spider as if it had came apart. Well the sub finally failed and he is sending it off to fixmyspeaker. Anywho.... The sub will be re-coned with a better spider, coil, and new cone and they said it will now be rated at 1000wrms instead of the underrated 600 wrms sundown has posted haha. Here is the specs: Sub: SA-15 re-coned 1000wrms handle Amp: Kenwood KAC9106D 1000wrms @ 2ohms http://www.kenwood.com/usa/car/amplifiers/kac-9106d/ Box: Any changes that need to be made let me know. TIA

I want it to hit low but still be able to reach the higher bass. My max dimensions are 3'x3'x1.5'. If anyone could help me out by finding out the dimensions and port area that would be awesome!!! I want it tuned around 30-32 hz Thank you in advance!
