Just for shitz & giggles I'm going to start building a sealed enclosure for my two 12's. L7's. I have them sounding great in the box I have now, vented at 2.75 cubes per sub tuned to 34Hz if I'm not mistaken. I'm just kinda bored and see if I can get some more SQ going sealed.

What I want to know is does anyone have any ideas for demensions and size of the box I need to build. Some say bigger is better and some say smaller for sealed. Well I really don't know to be honest. I know it wangs in the set-up I have now. I just wanna try something a little different. Since I listen to mostly Rock and metal I thought it may sound pretty decent. They will be pushed by a Orion 1200d and going in the back of a Nissan X-Terra. So size really is'nt that big of a issue. Thanks for any help in advance. Later On......

How are the L7's for rock/metal in terms of SQ?

Not to bad. The kick drum is amazing, Sounds like it's going right through my chest and throat. But for the bass lines it could use some improvement. It hits the lows better than expected, but just seems there something missing. But overall they rock.

I think with the box I have now is best for rap, which I really don't listen to very much. But when I do BAMM. You can hear/feel them L7's coming

I was thinking of those, but im looking for more SQ, so i think im going to go with Diamond D6's. They should do nicely. A sealed box might sound better for what your after.

Yea, I hope so. Does anyone have any specs they could recommend. That I can get the most out of these L7'. (sealed).

Anyone ???

x2, the beat is INTENSE with L7's

midbass, however, reminds me of cheap paper-cone speakers back in the day.....

they just plain sound weird

use them as a SUB, tho, and not a crutch for the rest of the system, and you will be pleased

What was your intention with sealing them?

More SQ?

i have the same problem wit my type x
i grew out of rap and listened to alot of techno house but the sub dont ppound as much

i did sum reseach tho and apperntly l7s n type x are great with lowbass but **** on higher bass
i think midbass can fixx it tho im not sure

Yes, basically to see if I can gain a little SQ. I really have no major complaints with the box I have now. I just want to try some thing different. And to see how they would sound in a custom built sealed box.

No one has any recomendations for the size I should build this sealed box ? I want it built to the size that they will sound at their best.

i would do the largest recommended size by kicker

then go closer to the smallest according to how much loudness you want to retain....

I'd go biggest, tho. Best response, and the lowest.
