View Full Version : Help with sealed box design for two AA Assassin 10's

FedEx delivered my g/f's AA Assassin 10's today and I have been trying to design a sealed box for the back of her Kia sportage.

I would build her a ported box but the amp she has doesn't have a SSF on it and becuase she listens to a variety of music so I think sealed is her best option.

Ascendant Audio recommends .7ft^3 per sub sealed and 1.2ft^3 per sub ported @ 32Hz.

Basically I have come up with this.

Internal measurements = 11" tall x 11" deep x 24" long / 1.68055556ft^3 internal

Outer measurements = 12.5" tall x 12.5" deep x 25.5" long / 2.30577257ft^3 external.

This box doesn't exactly follow the golden ratio of 3:4:5 but does this design sound good to you guys?

Heres a paint of the box design plan:

If I have done my math right then the cuts we'll need are:

Top and Bottom = two 25.5" x 12.5" cuts

Sides = two 12.5"" x 11" cuts

Back = 24" x 11"

Baffle board = 24" x 11"

does that sound right?Do the joints look strong?

sounds about right looks like it'll piece together... you should be fine with out any bracing...

btw why not port low say 27-30 ??? no subsonic filter needed for that low of a tuning

I am going to build sealed first I think just to see how she likes it,if it isn't loud enough then I'll replace and build a 2.5ft^3 slot ported box tuned to the low 30's

i would say just take some time and build you a ported box and be done with it.
