I'm feelin choice B more. Isn't it more efficient to have the subs 2 one side port middle 2 one side theoretically? Maybe I'm just a noob. Probly that one.

I'm likin the look of both, but went for B as I am a symmetrical kind of guy!

Sweet.....thanks for ideas....i was gonna go with B most likely, after he asked which one

Im gonna have an amp on the 2 back ones and the 2 front ones so i can gain match them to help with being in phase

I voted B, but I seriously liked A. A kerfed port with choice A would have looked nice IMO.

Either way, with (4) HDc3 12s its going to be loud.

I like B -- it is a more rigid box. More symmetrical too.

I chose B.. One of the main reasons id did is because each sub will load the box on a more even scale... With that,, each sub's cone will load properly which is a good thing... :D

i am feeling B because the top left speaker in A might have a problem with air pressure. and jeremiah used B and it seemed to work.


where is the 4 6'' internal aeros back and subs up?

B and he's giving them somewhere around 8-10k I believe from 2 AB 500.1's?

I am more about symmetry so "B" has my vote.

I picked A just because everyone else picked B. I dont think the port off on one side matters because the subs would all compress the chamber together pushing air out. I could be wrong tho so go with the consensus

B for sure

I love how you got them setup man... Very simple and they look loud as hell. What amp pushes them?

im liking B a little better for looks

either one will be nasty loud

IgnoreMe
01-30-2008, 08:06 PM
i picked A.

i dont like the idea of essentially "colliding" the two forces from each pair of subs against those back pieces like that and into each other...

im seeing turbulance

i did similar box for a GMC Jimmy, wedge box 4 12s up 4 6" PVC ports back.. 113sq.in. i think 7.7 cubes net or so..-mj. good luck, post pics when u build..

nvm 8 cubes...lol exact same box pretty much..lol, make sure you brace the area between the 4 subs and brace your port too..

just the the heck of it you should try putting some 3m heavy duty duck tape in the port :)

I'm gonna say B I have a box thats next to identical to that for 2 12's and get pretty loud for to Type x's it's a nice design as well .

Skip01
01-31-2008, 07:44 PM
bend or fiberglass. ;)

Yehh...not for ports as the other guy must have thought

But i decided against it...we agreed it wouldnt look to good and not make a substantial enough difference to warrant it:D

Hmmm...id like to know why Immacomputer voted for A, just to get his side of it?
