The Fi website says to build an enclosure 6-10 cubic feet. That is a pretty broad range. Anyone have any experience with this sub, and with different box sizes? I am looking into purchasing one down in the next month or two, and i would like to know what size enclosure allows the sub to perform at its best. Thanks!

Also, if you feel like it, throw out some ideas about tuning. I am thinking around 34hz, but feel free to give some feedback! thanks....!

ok thanks for the input. i was thinking 9 cubes before port, driver and bracing displacement. that would equal about 8.5 cubes, and tuning to 30-32. thanks again.

the sub and port and bracing would only take up half a cube?

Thanks for catching that Springy...that was a mis-type on my part. I meant that the bracing and all would take about 1-1.5 cubic feet out of the equation. meaning if i built an enclosure @ 9 cf before all displacement, it would come out to around 7.5-8 cf after displacement of sub, port, bracing etc. I don't know what i was thinking when i typed that. Serious brain fart there. Thinking > Me... :crap:
