2 SA-12 Enclosure Quick Check for 2500 RMS Daily


Recommended Posts

I am about to build this box in 2 hours with a friend, so any quick input would be nice, I did a lot of calculation, tried to keep port bends as low as possible, only 1 bend, port area I think is good, especially since im putting these 2 subs on 2.5x power daily, a kicker zx2500.1 for 2 Sundown SA-12's

Let me know if you would change anything quick, from what I can see its setup well, but when you been working on something for the last 6 hours you sometimes miss stuff

in torres calc it wasn't calculating the port area correctly, so I found the box internal volume after all displacements and then acted like the port was external to the box, winISD and torres gave me the same tuning when calculating it that way, I am going for 34hz with 3.22 cubes inside, I would have went bigger with the box but with the extra power I need a bit smaller airspace for sub control, I measured the Port Length right down the middle which is what your supposed to do I believe

Just let me know if I messed up on anything, even if you look at it quick, at least say yea or no or something, THANKS A BUNCH GUYS!!!

I only have 1 but it is running almost identical tuning and size and port area as the box you designed and it sounds fantastic, I am sure you will be happy with yours set like you have. Not sure how they will handle that much power daily in that settup, but this guy burped 1 sa-12 with over 5k watts so I think you should be ok

Break them in properly and you won't be disappointed at all, nobody believes all I have is 1 12 in my trunk, can't imagine what 2 with 2500 watts to them will do!

Breaking in a sub takes roughly two weeks. Crank it up at times for two weeks and you'll be fine. They can take a 1500 or a 2500 with no problem.

the suspension on SA woofers aren't so special that they require special break in procedures. just slam full tilt out of the box. the less power you feed them, the longer it will take for the suspension to loosen.
