I found a nice bandpass alpine type S 10" subwoofer enclosure box on ebay local for only $10 and a perfect match for my trunk. the box is 13*x13'x26 1/2". The thing is that I have an Eclipse 10" Aluminum sw810? but anyways according to the enclosure calculators Ive used the enclosure measurements are what I would need for a sealed box. Now is it a bad idea to turn this bandpass box into a sealed enclosure? It has only one port and that would be where I would cut the hole for my sub. Or should I just try to run it bandpass?

I also wanted to know, does bandpass enclosure shorten the life of your sub, since your sub is working against trapped air?

Why not just buy a pre-fab on ebay for $30 shipped or so? Probably be the same quality :laugh:

dont get that box, please why spend the money on a nice sub just to cheap out on the enclosure to have it sound like ***. a lot of people on here say its 10% equipment 90% install.

if this was the case then running subs in sealed boxes would also shorten the subs life.......

I was asking, not making a statement. What makes a subwoofer heat-up?

But anyways nobody answered my question, would this work if I converted the enclosure to sealed?--its already at the dimensions I need, it will be in my trunk and not for show.

um dude, if you dont have the ability\tools\materials\money\time for a custom box for your sub, and this box is the correct size for it and you can modify it to a sealed box, go for it.

its $10

i say expierement. why not :)
