Enclosure Guru's please help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys been browsing these forums and everyone seems knowledgeable and willing to help. I want to build my own box or atleast try to.With these snippets,can someone design me a box with a cut sheet so I can try please.I have a 2 dr Chevy Cobalt which i just ordered 2 ABXFL10s.I would like this box tuned low,as low as possible with the vehicle I have.From what I can gather,these subs need 2.0 cubes per with a decent amount of port area. Max width i have to play with is 35",height i can go 20 max,depth wise it doesnt matter,whatever i need to obtain my 2.0 per after displacement..I would assume for maximum effect,and pulling all the lows I would need the slot port on the face,or same side as the subs,firing toward the back of trunk lid,or would it be better to have the subs firing up at the trunk lid and the port facing the back of the car,Correct me if I'm wrong if I were to fire them into the cabin I would have to seal up the trunk,right?? I would like to avoid that if possible but you guys know more than me. My goal is to make this little cobalt loud and play as low as possible considering I have 10" subs. As far as power goes,these will be ran of 1 amp,that being the skar 3500 and the electrical support to power the amp.Anyone willing to help me out I would greatly appreciate it.TIA

2ft³ for 10's seems large. I design pretty decent. I can get something done for you. I don't model with SketchUp or anything like that so you're going to have to live with just a cut sheet and dimensions.

Cut sheet would do just fine,whatever you can do I would appreciate. I would go 1.80 per sub at min..Anywhere between 1.8 and 2.0 at 30-32 hertz will work. Anything you can do will help

Have you checked the Thiele-Small  parameters and recommended airspace from American Bass?

 I agree... personally I'd go a bit smaller on airspace with your power OP

2.6ft3 @ 34.5hz for the pair is as big and low as I'd go after modeling it.

Course' I'm just a noob

I looked at it and this is the best I came up with (largest volume/lowest tune)...

Course' someone else could probably do better.

Nice simple box too, I'd slap that together in a coulpa' hours or less.

Looks damn good to me. I would've designed very similar enclosure. Thumbs up for chiming in and being quick with the modeling.
