soo... i made my main cuts for my box off ALL 3/4 mdf and i noticed i forgot to add a double baffle into the original plans.:crazy:

box: 3.8 cubes @ 32hz
sub: fi bl 15
amp: saz 1500.1

question is.. is it necessary or am i fine?

it helps.. keeps things from flexing and a stronger baffle to hold the sub.

you could probably get by w/o it if you did a decent job putting it together

depends on how big the face of the enclosure is too..

:word: 1" vs 3/4" mdf is a factor as well.

if you have the extra wood, it never hurts. or you could always make a nice flush mount piece for it that acts as a double baffle (except for the part thats cut out) lol

give us a picture of it. i'd say with that sub if the face is over 22'' then add another baffle.

Nothing is assembled yet..
I only have the pieces cut out but the front face is

28.5 x 15 inches

How much is adding a baffle going to throw off my internal cubic volume..
and effect port tuning?

for daily driver setups, a double baffle for a heavy woofer is a good idea, but a single baffle with bracing behind it will be stronger than a double baffle with no bracing for sure.

It won't affect your vol or tuning because you can just add it to the outside of the box.

You can always just had some bracing from the front of the enclosure to the back of the enclosure. Will probably actually help more than a double baffle.
