My girlfriends family was gonna have me finish running wires in their basement all day tomorrow but... They're actually busy and don't need me so i have a whole saturday to myself :) I really need to use my 6" aero and MDF in my basement so I want to build my new box tomorrow. Does this design look ok for two 12" SEs off 1200 watts? Will the side chamber effect tuning at all? Thanks

if you cant see its 4.44 cubes, tuned to 31Hz with a 14.5" long 6" aero.

It looks kind of like a bandpass box in a weird way. As to your question, I have no idea... lol

lol ya that why i was wondering if it was big enough that it would just act like it was just open, but with the 45* direct the airflow forward. Other then that, look ok? I'm gonna try it and see if it looks ok.

Conceptually I can see it working but I don't know enough to give a definitive answer. What is the point of that open space anywho? Simply to fire the air forward as opposed to the side?

Yes, to keep the air flow forward. As well as having a full top across the back to put stuff on. It keeps my current box from shifting a lot too by having it that width.

You could always build the box without the extra area and make a false wall... Extend the baffle and top piece all the way to the left but leave the left side piece where it is and now you have a flush mount box with the port firing to the side.

That's an interesting design man. Is there any advantage to having a port come into a port like that?

Build it and find out

We're going to have to start calling that box design the "mobeius".
He already has this type of design up and running with 2 10's.

Is there any difference in that and just doing a slot port?

The space that the round port is firing into is not a slot port. It is simply empty space allowing the air exiting the port to be directed toward the front instead of to the side. It does not impact tuning.

So to answer your question, yes a slot port is different but the desired tuning can be achieved either way.

I dont think we can call it anything until we find out more about it, and whether or not other people have already been using it ;)

We'll just send ninja's to kill any previous builders...and destroy the evidence.:veryhapp:

i i'll be building an enclosure like this for my explorer.. subs up ports back firing into a loading chamber like that...which would ultimately be firing up as well. One of my many different strange box's i'm going to try.

my motivation is to provide the port with something stiffer to load off than the hatch.. no idea if thats either of your intentions..

Thanks for that link, I pm'ed mobeius about it a week or so ago, but idk if he got it, its cool. But from his vid it sounds like it works well. I think I'll give it a shot, and heck if it doesn't work, build a new one.

I guess that could be a benefit as well.. hadn't thought of that. No it was more to easily incorporate the box into the back of the car, as well as have something to protect the port and subs when i stack stuff on them.
