I have a new 12" type r that will be here tomorrow. I was originally wanting someone on here to desighn a box for me for money. Noone replied to my pms though:furious:

I saw moe lesters plans in the sticky.

Which one of these would be the best?

2.0 @34 1

Im looking for the best possible sound while still getting loud.

I listen to mainly rap, But some metal here and there.

Whats the audible difference between 32hz and 34hz?

I currently have 2 10" infinity perfects ported at 35hz. Im not really happy with the sound im getting.

If anyone knows someone on here who will do box plans for a specific type of driver could you let me know who to contact.

Thanks guys.

Will 32hz have better sq that say 34hz or 35hz??

Also wouldnt the sub sound a little bit different in each of the 32hz enclosures above?

You can ask anyone on here, they will tell you 2.5 cf for that sub. If you want loud do 35hz.

So 2.5 cu ft would sound better that 2.0?

How do you think 2.5 @ 34hz or 32hz would sound??

Depends on preferance of sound you want.

Would there be a drastic difference between 35hz and 32hz??

id ask him if he could build one for you around 3 cu. ft. at 34 Hz...I just think 32 is to low...3 cubes will give you alittle more bang.

The box thats in there holds 2 10s. Im selling my infinity perfects to my roomate. So the box im building is for a 12" type r that will be here tomorrow.

Im not really happy with the sound im getting from the perfects in the 35hz box. Its probably just the subs. Im pretty sure there made to be sealed.

They are, I would go with 2.5 cf as far as frequency it all depends on what you want. If you got room you can even go to 3.0 cf as stated above, I doubt u do in that trunk though. I got a 3.0 cf box in my car and my trunk is pretty much gone.

Well i want to go with 2.5 cu ft but the only options in the moe lester box designs are 28 and 32hz.

How would you describe the difference between 32 and 35hz?

Is it that drastic??

Oh and thanks for the help.

I think 28hz is to low. I have never built anything tuned that low.

btmorris972
06-07-2006, 06:36 PM
yea i know 28 is to low. If i cant find someone to make me specific box plans then im gonna have to use moe lesters. Hopefully 32hz will sound good to me.

2.5 @ 32 hz will sound good, I just sold one about a week ago. Common box for the Type R.

I am putting this sub in my sister's WRX. I had designed a box the same as the second one within .5 inches every dimension. Thats the one i'd go with.

I'm going to make one 2.0 cubes net tuned 34-35 Hz and another 1.2 sealed thats 9.5" deep to fit better in her trunk

Im gonna wire the sub to 2 ohms. It will be powered by a viper 1200.1:up2somet:

Hope it sounds good.
