Wanting to know the best enlosure build for a 12W7. I listen to mostly rap, want something that sounds good, gets loud, and nice on the lows. Maybe tuned to @ 38.

Its going in the back of my Volvo S40 and would like suggestions on what would sound best.

A JL 1000/1 will be powering it

Nothing tuned to 38Hz is going to be nice on the "lows".

I'd go sealed, personally, but you probably wouldn't like that...

x2... Tune to 32hz or below.

With something as mean as a W7, you could go sealed and still get respectably loud, and keep the flat response and sq of a sealed box.

Not really........Thanks for trying something different tho. I am just not much of a sealed fan. I just feel like I lose too much output by going sealed

Low tuned ported. Good to mix the SPL's with the SQ's.

What type of idea did you have in mind?

JL says it should be 1.75 cu ft tuned t 32....Does that sound right?

I personally would look at something more around 3 cf tuned somewhere below 30Hz. Those things really want a big box.

Id say about 90% of the boxes I do for JL subs, are requested to be built to JL's specs. I find that kind of strange. Because out of all the other boxes, only a handful get built to manufacturers specs.

I dont do designs, but personally, I think what JL recommends is a little on the small side.

I built mine to 2.5cuft and 30hz for a 12w7. So far it gets pretty loud. Still letting the sub break in a little before going crazy. Running mine of a 1000/1 as well.
