hey guys, im looking into building a ported box for my 2 10" infinity 1032w subs on a RF p2002 amp to get a little more bass over my current sealed box...

what specs (HZ, cubes, etc) would be optimal for the setup? im looking for a nice mix of sql and sq...i listen to some rock and some rap..so a full on sloppy spl box is out...maybe 34hz?? anyway...what do you guys think? thanks!

Id start with the manufacturer recomendations, as seen here

then double check the #s with the port length calculator here

Then start making sawdust...

For a 10" driver with only 13mm of xmax I think 1.75 cubes is too much per.

2 @ 35 would be great because when two drivers are put into a single chamber ported enclosure, each will see a slightly larger than 1/2 the effective volume.

so the plans i posted would be a nice setup to upgrade from my current sealed enclosure? or should i look for more cubes, or possibly a separated box? thanks!
