I currently have a XXX 12 in the sql (2.5 ft^3 - 35 hz) enclosure from RE's website. For me it is plently loud, but on some songs it seems to blur the really fast bass notes. I was wondering if I would get a noticable difference in SQ if I changed to a 2.1 ft^3 enclosure tuned to 28hz, or would I have to go sealed to get better sq? Any other recommendations are welcome as well.

I found that my 2.5 box tuned to 35 hz was rather loud. So I switched to a 2.0 tuned to 29hz. I did notice less output from the higher frequencys but much better SQ.

What amp are you running?

I found this pic with dimensions for the 12 XXX SS but I was unsure of what angles and lengths to make the slant pieces, some of them are labeled as 3" but are all of them? Does the angle of those slants really matter?

How do you make a design like this... like equations and such... how do you figure it out....

To tell you the truth I wasn't fully sure of the height, but someone on sounddomain said it was 17" so I do not know. I am pretty sure the 12 XXX ss is correct because that is an actually p4s box that he measured.

Does any one know the angle of this joint, it looks like 135 degree or so? well i can't load a picture. But the angle I was talking about is the one on the triangle that connects it to the end of the 11.5'' piece of wood.

would this box sound alright with a 12" kicker l7?

most likely not. It was designed for a 12" XXX. The SS designs are driver specific!

Anyone have a decent drawing with acutal sizes for a 12" version that they would like to share. My xxx 12 is currently sealed and I'm looking for alternatives.

All the dimensions are in the above pic with the XXX 12.

BTW, I am building a snailshell for my XXX 15 in a few days. ;)

How do I go about designing a snailshell enclosure? Is there a spreadsheet or something that provides some direction?

Pics are a must.

Once I start the build I will post pics....

Here are a few of the mock up, if you will. However, I don't have the rounded corner thingys there nor the doubled up baffle... they will be in the final enclosure though. ;)

WHAT ARE THE ANGLES YOU CUT INTO THE TRIANGLE THING?

You should do a full review on it....it will be interesting to see how it performs compared to your previous box.....

Its a combination of programs, spreadsheets, and calculations.

Can take days to weeks to design.

If it is an actual SS design none...

SS designed enclosures have no tunnung frequency or set internal box volume.

And only the people over at P4S know how to design them, regardless of what people say...
