  1. So i need some advice on deciding a new setup for my 2010 gmc sierra crew cab. As of now, i have a bad setup with 2 rf p1 12's under the backseat sealed. I wanted to do a ported box like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMqdmKnwjL0 however, i talked to a local audio store owner and he said i could never get a good sounding ported box under my seats, any thoughts? He said i should just do 2 JL 10 inch w1's sealed because thats the best setup he's heard in a truck like mine.
  2. Hi guy's , just bought a Brand new JVC DRVN 12inch (Black cone) , going to run at 4ohm as is a single voice coil , off a 250 rms jvc amp . Please help me design a box !!! Medium size , Good for music but also hitting low for some shake (Y) maybe 34hz or 36 what you reckon ?? Want a basic rectangular port Please can someone advise me on box dimensions . Either inches or mm for each piece , send me a link to a good box , and help me figure a good HZ tune . Thanks guys Ollie(16) from New Zealand Subwoofer - http://www.jvc.co.nz/CS-G1200.html Subwoofer spec's - http://www.jvc.co.nz/assets/pdf-manual/CS-GD1200.pdf
  3. hey, im running a fairly basic low powered setup: audioline azx800m mono(800 peak, 400rms @ 2ohms) 2 x kenwood kfcw3013(400rms @ 4ohms) in paralell here is the datasheet for the subs: http://images.kenwood.eu/files/prod/2093/5/KFC-W3013_2513.pdf anyway my question is, should i continue to run a ported box.. which is just about exploding from the pressure and i have had to reinforce or to port it, however i have looked into it and the resonant frequency is 25hz & the Qes=.91 making for an ebp of around 27 meaning that it is recommended that i remain sealed, however pioneer gives specifications for both ported and sealed boxes. By the way im more of a loud bass guy than a quality guy, anyway id appreciate to hear your input guys!
  4. So I'm wondering what would be best for a dodge ram ex cab. I think I'm going to put the enclosure on my rear seats... Should I have subs up port front? And have the port going in the middle between the seats? Ofr Subs up port back? Side? Please help. Thanks.
  5. basically as the title says. i was planning on a .75 ft^3 box for a single 8, but have been reconsidering that option since most people have been saying that the box has to be huge because of the port. I wanted the ported vs the sealed cause i didn't want to lose out on the low stuff 30 Hz and below.
  6. This is my friend Zach's car, I'm posting on his behalf. It's a 2002 WRX with STI turbo and intercooler swap from a 2006 STI. Clean title, manual five speed, with 87k on the odometer.

  7. I have 2 12inch DB drive wdx 2k subs that I want to make a box for now the specs say per sub 2.0 cu ft for sealed and 2.7 cu ft for ported. Now if I build it ported does that mean each sub needs 2.7 cu ft or can the whole box be 2.7 cu ft????
  8. Hey forum! I got my first car recently (01 540i) and Im ready to do something with the sound system. My plans are 4 Kenwood W3012 woofers in the trunk. I know these arent the best in game but I dont wanna purchase other woofers yet as I already own these and Im doing a budget setup as a proof of concept to myself and friends. Ill do some JBL components in the stock BMW 3 way location. Only issues I came up with is the lack of space to build a ported box for the 4 woofers. The box has to be sealed at around 4.1-4.3 ft^3. My question is is better to keep the 4 woofers sealed or drop two of them and build a good ported box for 2 of them? Im holding back from the porting only two as seeing as these woofers arent really designed to hit some low notes around 33 hertz. My needs for the sound output of this box is mostly Hip Hop, Dubstep with sometimes the need for rock/metal. I want the box to be loud for what it is and not in much need for SQ. As for power, the woofers require 400 watts each and Ill be running a Belva BB5000D at around 2500-3000 watts RMS @ 1 ohms. I know this is overkill for the woofers but Im keeping the gain down and I want this amp now to be ready for when i decide to upgrade to something of high quality. Keep in mind Im a freshly entered college student so all the equipment is mostly budget equipment for the time being. If you guys could give me your thoughts and recommendations on how to make this the best it can be that'd be great. Ill post some car picks to show you what Im working with. I've heard great advice from this forum. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey guys right now I'm in the process of designing a new box but I'm not sure If I want my port on the drivers side, or in the center. Currently my box is firing forward sealed off with the port on the drivers side. It gets nasty low with both front windows down. Will having a center port change that? Im sure it will but I just dont know How or What its going to change.
  10. Do you guys like sealed or ported boxes more? And which type you choose explain why you like that kind of box more than the other.
  11. Well... Finished building a slot ported, 4.2cf enclosure tuned to 29hz for a single Kicker CVR 15. Couple days later the CVR is done for, so I'm looking to do something new. So I'm looking for a few opinions on my thoughts for my next build. My amplifier is 1 OHM stable, putting out around 1,600 to 1,800 rms. I liked the way the single sub setup sounded, but I've always liked seeing multiple subs banging together. So I was figuring for my next setup, I would like to go with 6 12's. Love seeing 4 or more woofers working in unison. With the power I got to play with, the space I got and the budget I'm trying to stick to, I was thinking of going with the RE Audio rex12d4. About 60 bucks a piece, 175 Watt rms. So it won't kill my budget. Would be going with the dvc 4 ohm, 6 drivers to see a 1 ohm load. So they would be getting about 300 rms each. Was thinking going with a sealed enclosure. 2 enclosures (to ensure getting them in my.trunk opening) each one housing 3 woofers, shared chamber, 2.25cf after displacement and adequate bracing. Fitting with the recommended size of .75cf per driver. So the 6 in a total of 4.5cf sealed, all firing upwards in the trunk of a 2005 Bonneville. I know these are low power woofers, but can I really go wrong with roughly 670 inches of cone area? Would like a few opinions. Am I wrong in thinking this would provide some SQ while still being able to get decently loud? Would I be overpowering to much? Would the such low power drivers be a let down output wise even with all that cone area? I listen to rap/dubstep mostly, with some rock thrown in. Any input would be appreciated!
  12. watsup i have a question about two 12' dc level four subbwoffers what would be the ideal box size? Im planning to upgrade my subbs pretty soon. im just curious to find out if i have enough room
  13. i have a custom made box in chevy crew cab that is for 2 12s sealed. the subs i have right now are sundown sd 12s. but i just got a fi sp4 18 that i have siting in a seat. and my buddie is going to buy one of my 12s so i was wondering what would be the best way to make the box ported for a single 12. the box is 2.25 cubic feet and its a common chamber. one method i was gonna do is make a passive radiator out of my old blown power bass 12. would that be good enough or should i make some type of aero port in the box.
