Its a 12" fi q, powered by a ed 9.1. Gettin about 900 to 1000 watts. I plan on giving t 2 cubes but what should i tune to? I listen to alof of metal, and i love to turn up the rap music at stoplight confrontations to see if i can get louder then the other guy in his car

2.0 cubes at 32 hz seems best. Any opinions?

using the re calculator i got w30xH14.5xD14.5 to get me at 2.5 cubes. and a 2" wide port with the port length piece2 at 19" to give me 28hz

how does this look so far? need to know by this weekend so i can start this project up

A wall socket would be your best bet

That box will be 2.6ft^3 after sub displacement. Unless your port will be outside the box it will not work.

Can you subtract the depth for me so we can get the right amount of cubes please. The width and height needs to be kept where it is

Actually, You need to increase the depth in order for it to work.

if u use the re calculator make the desired volume 2.65 or whatever to account for the sub displacement

the difference between 32 and 28 hz is that 28hz will have a flatter better sounding response. with a higher low end presence. however the 32hz tuning would be louder, sound pretty good, and get pretty low and require a smaller box. prob .4 cubes or so.

ur call. im a low end / sq buff so i built my box for my 12" fi q that i had to 2.65 net after sub and port @ 27hz 2.8 before sub.

At 1ohm it is. But the fi q i have is a dual 1 ohm so have to run it at 2 ohms
