An enclosure for P2D2-12

Recommended Posts

This is my first post and I hope not the last. From what I've been reading and some of you more knowledgeble been saying is that even a shitty sub in a good enclosure can outperform the greatest subwoofers in sub par enclosures. Right now I am running a rockford p2d2-12 in a stock box from rf powered by an R750-1D amp. It gets plenty of power and yet Im not satisfied with what Im getting. I know RF doesnt get much love here and its not a great sub but before I buy something else, I want to try a new enclosure. The recommended Vas by RF is 81.5  litres (~2.8 ft) and the stock box is only 52 litres so Im confident the enclosure is the problem here. I have ~4ft of space available for the box and I'd have no problem of using it all. The question is does anyone have a great design for this sub and if not, where do I start making it myself?

RF gets much love here 

The p2 is an entry level sub. Don't expect much. 4 cubes is not going to do anything but hurt that sub.

 

Recommend sealed is 1.02 cubic feet

Recommend ported is 1.79 cubes tuned @ 40 hz.

 

Vas is not  translation to box volume

Then Ive been reading too many bad posts about RF. If thats the case about this sub, I guess its time to upgrade. This is a total change of topic. Is there anything you could recommend for this amplifier that would really make me feel a difference? Im mainly looking for something that would make me feel those hard tight drum kicks like in concerts or beats in the chest like in the clubs. I really feel like my bass is lacking compared to T262S in the front for highs and 2 PPS4-6 in the back for mids. My budget is around 350$ for the sub, I can do little bit more if anything close comes up. I'd guess for my power and availble space a single 12" or 15" would suffice?

Nice components. I'm going to be installing 2 sets today actual.

Did your budget, get  a American bass xfl 12 dual 2 ohm. Give it 2.5 cubes ported @ 38hz. That amp is fine. It's underrated it's around 1k easy.

An xfl 12 with at least 1k in the right box will be a HUGE step ( or a few steps honestly) up from what u already have. I tried and beat the stitches out if my xfl on 2k and it just ate and wanted more. Phenomenal sub and a very good price for it. I had mine in 2.5 cubes at 32hz and it would take ur breath away in my lil blazer.

Is there a big difference between xfl 1244 and xfl 1222 other than ohms?

Specs r same ( if I remember correctly). Just one is dual 4ohm and other is dual 2 ohm
