View Full Version : Free box designs?

03-24-2008, 09:36 PM
I'm looking for a box design and I've seen a couple box designs thrown up here before, I'm not sure whether these were paid for or not. Maybe the more complex ones were while other simpler ones weren't. I'm sure for what I have it'll just be a basic box but I'm not totally in the know just yet.

I'd also like some suggestions on whether I should go ported or sealed?
I think I wanna go ported for a better sound with rap. But what should it be tuned to?

2 SWR-1242D (2 12" Alpine Type ARGHS!)
Hifonics BXi2607D

I'm not sure if I can attain a nice freq with these two subs and only so much space, but any help would be appreciated.

Dimensions: (in case someone wants to design a box for me :D)
30" wide, I have a little bit more room but would like some clearance.
15" tall, thats about my max
and I would like to have some trunk space left so 16" deep would be nice, but if one of the dimensions has to change it'd be the depth.

First system so most likely anything will make me happy. Thanks for any help.

Well, sealed you would be just over 4 cubes, ported you would be a little over 3...

Not enough space...

SO, what is there that I can do....

I only use one 12" R...

The other one is sitting on a chair..

What kinda car?

And go measure again....im sure u have more depth

You could use aeros...they save on space of port

I have a lot more depth, but I'd be losing more trunk space than I'd like to, but maybe I'll just have to deal with it......

deal with and use every single little bit of space there

Yehhh you can fit 2 12s in that.....those trunks are huge from what i remember

And I have about 30" of total depth, thats the whole trunk.

So thats definitely enough, but now I need a design with the inner dimensions for depth and width under 30" and height under 15"

I'd like to learn all of this on my own, but tuning doesn't seem like something I could just learn, and I don't wanna just search and do what everyone else does without any other inputs, but what should the box be tuned to? I've seen 30-35 for 2 type r's somewhere.
