View Full Version : Box thickness Louder?

07-14-2005, 06:08 AM
Is it possible for some subs to not sound as loud because the thickness of the box is too much? For example if there is a sub and it is in lets say 1/2 thickness box and then 3/4 thickness box, would it be louder in the the 1/2 thick box? Or vice versa. Forgeting the resonance of thinner boxes by the way.

Ok so the thicker u go - the louder u can get? I was just asking because I never really thought about it until now. So usually a thicker wooded box would be louder than a thinner box? Even in a sealed application?

a properly braced 1/2" mdf box could also outperform an unbraced 3/4" box
