today i had some free time so i build a subwoofer enclosure for a single 12" sub.
i have always wondered about these plans i stumbled across on the net. i didnt think it was going to workout,
well there is only one way to find out. i wish i would have taken pictures at the begining of the build.
the piece of mdf at the end of the slanted piece is the adjustable choke....

well thats it. i tested the enclosure out with a pioneer that has alot of cone damage . someone gave it to me a long time ago after they tried to repair a huge tear from the surround to the dust cap by using chaulk. looked like hell to, anyways the sub pounded hard for about 2 minutes. well until i desided if this ghetto 200 watt rms sub could handle 1000 watts rms at full tilt. R.I.P. pos. lol anyways in the end i was glad i made it cause the sound output was clear in quality and got loud and had a wider bandwith than i would have ever quessed...............

.................. i wonder what it would sound like with my armageddon 15" installed ????

I've, never listened to a horn enclosure in the car before. Sounds interesting. The only time i heard horn enclosures were at clubs and they were loud with low low rumbles. What can one gain using horn vs. ported besides output wise?

Efficiency with the loss of size. Horns are really impractical for a vehicle and most of the time, there is nothing for them to loaf off of so you don't get a true horn experience.

The horn I used worked really well in both my car and room with it getting a little lower and having better power handling in my car. It was far too big to try to use in car though. It was bigger than my current enclosure (2.2 net) for my 12" sub and this was a 6" driver.

so...how would u compare it to a ported box of the same size?

I can't and won't because I would never put that particular 6" driver in a ported enclosure that size. I did have that same driver in an enclosure that was sealed at about .5 cubes. The difference was huge but they were also serving different purposes.

That is, of course, if you're talking to me and not the original poster.

Not a horn, or a particularly well designed "snail shell".Did you guess on some of those, or what?

Still should go boom..........
