  1. Looking for help with designing a box this Will be my first time building a custom box I'm getting two sa 12 d4 rev3 with an Scv 2000.d mono block amp I'm putting them in my Chevy Malibu maxx it's a hatch back i would like to put them in the cargo area I've got 39 long × 20 deep × 15 high for trunk space I'm looking for a slotted box about 1.75 ft^3 per speaker and tuned to between 32-38 want to do an up fire box with the port to the back even if you can just help with port dimensions tuning is my biggest problem I've tried to use calculatores but I just don't know enough to use it comfortably even if it's just some help with learning to use the calculator it would be greatly appreciated thanks
  2. Help

    P1S4-12 New generation enclosure help needed for 4 cubic ft for two subs sharing the same L port tuned to 34hz a cut sheet if possible please for a Yukon if that helps space is not a factor running a r750/1 fosgate right now they are in a p1x2 Rockford fosgate box
  3. Hello, Im looking to get a box design for 2 NVX VCW 12s from specs it says they like lower tuning and around 1.5 to 1.85 cubes per sub. with that in mind id like to tune to 30/32hz also i have good electrical that never dips below 13.5, i will get at least rated 2k if not more my max room is 15.5" tall,34"wide,23" deep thanks!
  4. So to start out this box will be going into the trunk of a 2005 chrysler 300c. Sub is a Skar Audio DDX 15 being powered by a matching rp 800.1 and max dimensions are: 17H x 31W x XD (D = anything really to make 4 cubes and fit aero port inside box if Possible). I already have a 4 cu ft slot ported box in the back with sub and port facing into the cabin, and it hits nice but i like the look of aero ports plus a change is nice every now and then. Now my question's really come down to: Sub/port placement ( IE: sub up port back, sub/port forward, sub back port forward) and what size aero port(s) should i go with? Looking for around the 32Hz range.. Also is there any advantage in having the length of the port inside the box vs outside?
  5. 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-
  6. So Its upgrade time and I plan on running 2 ascendant audio chaos 12s out of a trunk with the trunk being sealed, i would like to have the subs firing the same side as the port into the cab with the port centered between subs. Im looking for something with 4 cubes not including the displacements. tuned to 32 hz with 64" of port area and a 1.5" baffle i plan on using 1/2" allthread for bracing so it wont be an issue in taking up air space. Ive come up with a few designs but they dont work out, i need the box to be 34" wide with the height being 15" the depth cannot be greater than 26" thanks for the help!!! Also will be running on rated power
  7. Looking to build ported enclosure for 2 skar audio ddx 15 dual 4 ohm on an rp 1500.1. Looking for subs up port back. Available space is H=22 W=44.5 D=22 trying to get between 34-36 Htz. Any design help would be greatly appreciated ive been trying to figure out something and my brain is just not working lol
  8. Right now I have a T3 components in the doors, T1652s in the rear (T400-4 amp) and 2 P212s (R5001xd 619 @ 1 ohm birthsheet). Ive been looking all over for an upgrade, first I thought maybe T015s and a T1500 amp. That set up would've costed me 3500 and it would've just been a big ass box in my sedan's trunk, likely not what the subwoofers really want or need. I then bought some 12s HDC3s and I sold them to someone else after being convinced the same thing. I started looking into DD and the size of their boxes are crazy big (and I do not want one subwoofer). So now I'm looking at having four P3D410s in a "show build" powered by 2 prime 1200s. With that said, I'd have more than double the cone area and more than double the power (does this mean I'll increase by 6 decibels?) What do you think of the build in question? Will I be impressed? Should I get a box for this or should I let them just make this "show build"? Meaning they'd want me to appear at shows to show off their work. I'll answer all questions! Links to videos of your own 10s would be acceptable as well.
  9. I need you guys to help me i want to build a box in a 2009 tahoe for a single zv4 15 tuned to 32hz im pushing it w a soundqubed 2200 thanks in advance guys
  10. https://ibb.co/dxXUJF I got two dc level 4 15s im throwing in the back of my accent hatchback, as you can see all amps are wired up and ready to go, just gotta build box, but I cant figure out what would be best.. its going to be a big and tall slot port box, if port is to the rear it will only have like 4 or 5 inches clearance from hatch, i noticed walled off setups are always port and subs forward and sound great but also hear to always point it backwards... with my setup, what do you think would be best? after i build it, its gonna be hard to turn around and experiment so kinda have to do it on first try.
  11. I have a 15 inch obsidian audio v3 dual 2 ohm and i need help with the design of a inverted enclosure. I can do the building part its just the technical part im not good at. I would like it to be tuned to 33-36 hz. I plan on putting around 600-700 watts on it.
  12. I have a boot size of 180 liters and my subwoofer is 12 inches(280 [email protected] OHMS), Please help me with the measurement of ported enclosure box, the current box has broken so please help with the measurement. Im ok to remove the extra speakers( see 2nd pic) to increase the size of the box. Please see the pics that i have attached
  13. I am planning on building a sub box for a RX8, but since the trunk is small, my options are limited. I might use either a single Rockford Fosgate P3 - 10" or 12". But I've heard about 'port noise' and was wondering if my design would make the noise I am using 5/8 MDF The dimensions are in the pic:
  14. Hello Guys, I am looking to get some help in designing an Enclosure for Dual sundown audio X 12s v.2 for a hatchback. I don't have too much of space to work with but i am looking for an efficient Box Design. I have been designing Enclosures for years but have always worked with slot Ports and i have a 0% experience with the Aero Ports. This time i want to try Aero Ports and when i searched online i was getting confusing information regarding the Port area and Air Velocity. Can someone please help me with this enclosure? The Max outer dimensions that i can squeeze from the boot are H - 21.5 , W - 39 , D- 15.5 (All in inches) Config wud be Sub up , Port up . I want to go the Aero Port route this time
  15. Single 15 in a Dodge Mega Cab. Took some creative box design but it slams!! About 4 cubes and tuned to 34 hertz. Seats have to be down to allow for excursion. Seat just touches surround when it's up.
  16. New here and looking for some help with a ported box for my type r 12"'s. They can handle 1000w rms for the amp I have the jl 1000/1 nex-d. I have an 05 Tahoe with 48"w 38"l 20"h in the back. My youngest daughter is special needs so I usually have a fold up stroller in the vehicle and occasionally have her wheelchair as well. We listen to dub, rap, metal mostly but we listen to just about everything. Looking for good bass and not trying to compete, making people mad is just a bonus. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated since I really suck at math and don't have the time or money to figure it out or buy a custom box. Thank you in advance.
  17. Hey guys, finally saved up a little to get some new subs and I have have decided on 2 SA 12's. Now my problem is that I need to build a box and I have a macbook pro and to my knowledge the most reputable enclosure programs are made for Windows and not Mac. If anyone has any suggestions on what to use it would be greatly appreciated. That being said, if anyone is bored and wants to design a box I will also list, hopefully, all the info needed. The vehicle will be a 98 blazer, Max dimensions available 37" wide 17" height 25" deep (still leaves plenty of room between the box and back hatch) Amp is an SAZ-1200d I like to listen to alot of rock music but love playing demo songs to get loud and sound good too. I'm thinking tuning in the mid to low 30's I would like to use all the available width to fit nicely between the wheel wells. Also another side note is I would prefer subs up port back with a single slot in the middle but I am not opposed to aero ports if that would work better (I dont have much experience with aeros) Thanks everyone/anyone who contributes!
  18. I have a custom built sub box for four eight" subs. It's made from 3/4" birch and is internally braced and t-nuts used. Tuned to about 36 hertz depending on sub displacement. Dimensions are 18x20x34. It's about 3 cubes. Asking 150.00 Located in Michigan but will ship if buyer pays.
  19. Alright, I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 inline 6 I recently bought off craigslist that im re doing just for a "fun" vehicle. Im recently doing a stereo build on this thing that pretty basic, but my question is, what kind of enclosure should I build that will be loud, or heard from an outside standpoint? Equipment: - Aftermarket Head Unit - 132 amp Alternator - Big 3 upgrade - 8 JL audio 4" 2 way speakers - Dual 4 Channel amp for the 2 ways (one I found in my attic) - HiFonics Brutus BX1205D amp - 2-12" Alpine Type R (again found in my attic) In a prefab enclosure - Extra Battery in the back, all 4ga Power Wire Everything is pretty much "thrown together" and was found the cheapest way possible. I am pretty good with subwoofer enclosures when it comes to making them, so I dont think there will something that will be too difficult. My goal isn't to get these the loudest I can, but more to make them sound good and be HEARD outside. Does anyone have any experience when it comes to this? Like something from a ranger or any other UTV? Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!
  20. I'm trying to get help with specs for a SMD mini, there's no info anywhere and I'm not getting a reply fro Steve's facebook page. Hopefully someone can help. Max width can be 39" and 14" tall...can be as deep as necessary. Would like to have box tuned to 31hz. Thanks in advance
  21. Just wondering if I could get some help with an enclosure that I would like to build. Starting off, will admit that I am fairly new to building boxes and need lots of help. Currently I have two Rockford Fosgate P3's powered by a fosgate prime 1200 watt in a prefab box Listen to mostly rap, g-eazy, rae sremmurd, 21 savage, that kinda of stuff. Max dimensions that I could build is H- 17in W- 37 in D- 20 in Wondering what would be the best tuning for the subs and how I would achieve this with an aero port? And what dimension would work best for building this box?
  22. Hi Im building a subwoofer enclosure for 2 12' type r subs (2kRMS) and wanted to know what size enclosure i should use. I have depth of 17 height of 15 and width of 35 max. I was thinking around 5.5 cubes I want to tune the box to around 32 hertz and want very low bass. What diffrence does a larger enclosure make over a smaller one? Also how big should i have my port i will be using a slot port but wanted to know if a port which its height is less and width is more is better than a port with a larger hight and smaller width. I was thinking a 4' wide and around 9 heigh is thw width fine? All help appreciated
  23. Looking for anyone that can provide dimensions and a cut sheet list for a single sundown audio zv4 15. Wanting around a 7 cubic foot box, The box will be in a 1995 Yukon so I have a good bit of space to work with as far as measurements go, don't have exact measurements off the top of my head. Any help would be nice.
  24. B2 10 INCH ENCLOSURE

    Hi, i am looking for a design or plans too. i am new here so don't know how this works. the box i need is going into a VW Golf MK5.. the subs going in are 2 x B2 10'' 600rms and the amp is a GroundZero Plutonium 2.3000D. i know,its gonna play at 45% i took measurements of my trunk and this is what i would like to keep some spare room .Cause i am european and we measure in cm or mm i would like to have the dimensions in centimetres… … W= 84CM MAX. H=35CM MAX. D=35-40CM MAX. tuned at 30-35 Hz.. the subs info: http://b2audiostore.net/collections/subwoofer/products/el-10-subwoofer i hope i provided all or enough information ….
  25. Hey guys! So, I think i mentioned before in my build log that i wanted to do four 15's when i come home from deployment, and i think (not sure, too lazy to check) that i mentioned the Ascendant Audio Havoc as the choice. Four of them, powered by two SoundQubed Q1-3500.1D's. And that's the plan. So i've been tinkering with some different slot port designs and tunings between 28 and 33hz as recommended by AA and some other builds by members on here, and i feel like i finally found the sweet spot for what i am going for. So here it is: Dimensions are 26H x 48W x 41.5D, Port is 6H x 45W x 34D. Brings me out to 18.43ft^3, with a torres tuning of 27.94. I didn't factor in the window bracing, so that should drop it down in size to about 18, and raise the tuning a smidge, putting me to where i modeled it at in winISD, which is 18 and 28. now for some pictures. Port velocity http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag321/reedal931/Port%20velocity_zps9zawcza6.png~original Excursion http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag321/reedal931/Cone%20Excursion_zpsmxc5iect.png~original TFM http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag321/reedal931/TFM_zpsrhgcu48r.png~original and how i plan to make it look. Hopefully with some much better cuts than i did with my box for the 12's. I cut a few pieces with my saw at a 15-ish degree angle before i realized it, so stupid. oh well. http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag321/reedal931/enclosure%20screenshot_zpszovtnroz.png~original for some reason, no matter what, i can't embed my photobucket pictures when i'm on PC. I do everything the same exact way on mobile and it works just fine, but not PC. So, sorry for the direct links, but SMD keeps telling me i'm "not allowed to use that image extension on this community." let me know what you guys think, any changes you may recommend, etc. I will make roundovers on the enclosure of course, but my sketchup skills just aint that great..... and i can't figure out how to do it :/ Thanks!
