Ok currently i gotta 12w6v2 in a ported box it sounds ok but i want to build over another box cause i made the box out of plywood and a installer said that it will sound better in a mdf box wat i wanna know is should i build over the ported box by jl spec or can i try a bigger lower tuned box i was looking at 2.0 @ 30hz, right now mine is 1.5 @ 32 (jl spec).

my experience with jl subs is they need a little bigger box than what the specs call for. if it was mine i would give it about 2 cu. ft. and keep the tuning around 30-35hz depending on your music preference and what not. hell, just going from plywood to mdf is going to make a huge difference.

Actually I read somewhere that plywood is actually the best material for resonance just not very strong or durable.

well if you havent started the box.
i will like to add that a 2.5 cu ft @ 26Hz, port H=12 x W=3 x L=52.21, it should give you a nice flat freq resonce with crazy low end bass,
the internal volume given above is after port, sub and brace displacement.

I aint start yet but i look at the specs of that box i like it but it is too big wide and deep to get in the trunk lid of my nissan sentra sedan but i was lookin at moe lesters box plans and the 2.1 @ 28 wud fit perfectly in and the responce is close to the 2.5 @ 26 box in win isd .

i biult a box for a customer for 2 JL13W6 V2 subs after port displacment it was 2.5cuft each chamber and the port was like 1.75"X15"X27" and it totally slammed he was pushing them with a single JL 500.1 only problem was at like 145db the Alpine Hu would start skipping, so we are making a custom console to mount the hu in to try to eliminate the skips so he can compete (this was in a Geo Tracker so that kind of bass made the car rattle very very bad was why we are having the hu problem) and yea the box was 3/4" MDF then we resined the entire inside of teh box.

right now that comes up to a 3.3cuftinternal displacement, after port and driver displacemants you end up with 1.99 cu ft, port= H=13.5 W=2.5 L=48.84= 1.2 cu ft tuned to 30Hz
