Needed - (Sub Make and Model Number) please be exact eg. instead of (Type-r) (please say Alpine Type R SWR-1242D) and how many

would you like high spl (desired SPL??please give) or extened low-freq. bass

Remember: High SPL has a Higher Tuning Freq. Resulting in Higher Cut-off Freq. Please Be very specific about how (loud) and (responsive) you want it to be

your approx. box dimenions or largest possible.

Ported or sealed or bandpass.

(if ported, slots or round ports? and how many you want)(desired Tuning Freq.)

Subwoofer Wiring.

Would you like to follow comp recomendations for box type and size? or do you want your own?

There should also be a vehicle option as well.

In my '99 Integra hatch, with my 12" Acoustic Elegance av12, I have found that 2.2 cubic feet at 32hz has worked the best for low frequency extension and smooth response up to about 70hz.

In my Integra hatch, with my 12" Image Dynamics IDQ D2 v2, I have found that 1.5 cubic feet tuned to 30hz worked really nice for a flat frequency response down to 30hz and up to about 100hz with excellent transients.

We Are going for Subwoofer Specific Enclosures.
(Can also give Good X-Over Range for HP/LP Filter) For Sub/Box Design
If you want a Subwoofer Specific Enclosure then hit me up. Vehicle Specific is totally different. Im not building the boxes.

Haha, I misunderstood the thread. I thought you were wanting our own experiences for what we liked the best, not what we wanted.

I don't need any designs; I'm more than capable of doing that on my own.

ok then. I never said u weren't. But you know some people like to get input on things so i figured since i have this expensive software I may as well help people out. nothing wrong with that. (im not saying ur saying there is)

but in another thread your asking about getting the port length of a box done for you from someone here.


this doesnt make sense.

Where?

fix that, im sorry dude, i got you confused woth the OP of the thread "I need this box built today"

My bad.

what software do you have?

so in this thread u are givin our spec for u to design a box for us
well then i need a box for a 1995 camaro to put in the t-top area
i have
1 12" dvc 2ohm solobaric
SQ not spl
box is 36"W x 15"L x 12"H slanted down to 6"H
ported- 2 round ports
dual 2ohm VC wired to 2 ohms
comp recommendations and own please
yea what is the program

Quit while you're ahead. If you were truly designing boxes, you wouldn't give someone a dimension of 8.8 inches. Plugging numbers into a program and getting theoretical numbers does NOT equate to enclosure design.

I'm assuming he is using LEAP.It's either something quite expensive such as SpeaD or LEAP, or something cheap and rudimentary like ProBox. Either way, he's just plugging in numbers and isn't giving out dimensions you can cut without a CNC router.

U musn't know math to well if you believe that I would say "cut" 8.8" ........8.8" is from edge to edge of the port. placing the wall internally shortens it by 0.75". and I am sorry "I" don't round off the number for you. + why not use a table saw to make that cut. + Encosure is designed for the sub. designing it by "the car" isn't smart. you just need your max dimensions that you want it to be. Information from graphs are VERY accurate. I don't just punch in. you want it proper ill spend the time.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: @ you telling me how to design an enclosure. Look in sig for a sample bud, I've had a fair bit of practice.

So, if the side is truly 8.8" long, and you place it internally (which you should specify before people waste a sheet of wood wondering how the box is supposed to be assembled), that means that you have a panel of 8.05 inches. Assuming that this is correct, that means your opposite side is 7.3". Am I correct here? You cannot cut a panel that is 7.3" long on any basic ruler of measure. Common measurements are done in 1/8s, not in the 10 trillionth's like you posted. If you're going to do this for people (which I normally like), at least let them be able to cut the panels.

And if you truly believe that you shouldn't consider the vehicle AND the speaker when designing a box, I'm not surprised by the preceding at all.
