12 inch RE XXX (older model). Hopefully those specs i gave him to work with are going to be optimal for that sub, being as he already cut it and everything. :crap: :eek:

wait, so you paint them, and then carpet them too? That is interesting. :) I was thinking people just slap carpet onto the wood after it is cut.

ah ok then. :) You seriously have no clue how excited i am for this box though, i have had the XXX for about a year and a half now, and have been using it in like a .75 cubic foot sealed box. I have never even heard an XXX in a ported box before. I bet it will be nuts. :D

Hey I just have a question. I was reading in some other thread that for boxes, you actually have to tune higher than what you actually like, especially for super subs. What is the story with that? Like if you tune 5-6 hz higher someone was saying, once the sub is in there, it will compensate and play at the original tune you wanted.

Im guessing they are talking about not compensating for sub displacement. Which, in the design we used, it accounts for this displacment and will be the correct specs once the subs are dropped in.
This make sense?

There is some protective corners inside the box. Its how they package kitchen cabinets we receive where I work. Havent had any problems with it yet ;)

No. That information is NOT correct at all. Subs may play lower than tuning but putting the sub in only changes the tuning by about .2hz. It would make the tuning HIGHER because the net volume is less, unless you calculated sub displacement first.

Your right. I forgot about that. I use DHL, I received an email confirmation from them for a pickup date tomorrow. I just looked at my email again, and it has tomorrows date on it. So maybe the are still running tomorrow. Guess we will find out. They usually come to my place around 8 am, so I will let you know on my lunch break.
