Need to Know; Custom Box Info

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a note; All you guys wanting enclosure designed / built or what ever
I keep seeing all these air space or volume request with speaker size/ tuning frequencies and so-on
It is very important to know more information
like the type of vehicle and more
The environment (Vehicle) will seriously effect “ALL” these factors
An Experienced Subwoofer Enclosure Designer (not just builder)
Needs to account for All the variables

True available space
Locations and surroundings for new enclosure
Distance to the Listeners
The Acoustical Characteristics of the Environment (different vehicles and certain
locations inside of that vehicle will react differently
Power Demands
Audio Objective (Type of Music, Response and SPL Levels)
Cosmetics (Looks)
Cost (The Cost of a Custom Subwoofer Enclosure can go and be divided up in
many directions)
You can spend a lot of money on just Looks (Fiberglass, Paint, Vinyl, Plex, Neon,
ECT...)
You can spend a lot of money on Performance (SPL or Sound Quality)
It’s finding the right Balance for that particular Project

An Expensive Subwoofer and Amplifier dose Not Equal GOOD BASS
Straight cut MDF and a Box Program dose Not Equal GOOD BASS
