View Full Version : Enclosure Design for 12" Fi Q

01-22-2009, 03:16 PM
I just got rid of my suv and bought a car and I plan on putting my Q in my car but don't want to use the same box because it's just too big. Right now it's in 2.5 cubes at 32. I was thinking about going sealed for SQ but then again I want it to be loud enough for the sound to come from the trunk into the cabin of the car. I'm a low end feind, so I definitely want the lows. For a mixture of SQ and SPL while retaining some trunk space I was thinking 1.8cuft (FI recommended minimum) tuned low to like 28-30. How would this work compared to going sealed in 1.5 cubes?

Go ported...biggest you can built to spec. If you need someone to build the box for teh cheap, PM me. ;)

that's the issue......I don't have room for a big box.

IMO 1.5ft^3 sealed.

I have mine running in a 1.25ft^3 and it's plenty loud on 500 watts.

what would the difference in the low end be, comparing 1.5 sealed to 1.8 ported @30?
