Is there any reason to make a sealed box larger (or smaller) then manufacturer specs?

I've heard that some Manufactuers recomend smaller boxes to protect thier warrenty. Any truth to this???

Will subs proform better (or the same with less power) in slightly larger boxes??

well the box size does effect the power handling of the sub. the bigger the box, the less power it can handle (no matter what the rms of the sub says, it will be lower in a huge box)
the smaller, the better the power handling. so basically they do do it for the warranty, and to protect the subs

That pretty much does it thanks guys.

But just to clarify, the best place to start is right at the recomended size?

You could always start larger then add small pieces of wood to take up some space if you don't like the sound.

Making it larger will result in more low end output

Thanx

That is an awsome idea building it large and possibly adding wood.

I more quick question Polk MM1040 any reviews??
