View Full Version : ?'s for box for 96 ford explorer

03-22-2009, 09:37 PM
Well I am building a box for a guy at work. He has two American pro ws-9012 600 watts yea I kno they are crappy as they get but it's what he has. They are currently in a garbage band pass box. And I figured if I get em in a ported it should sound way better(or should I go sealed?). He is not looking for a heavy hitting system(lets be honest it's just not gonna happen). They are being powered by a small mtx thunder 4 channel. But anyways on to the ?'s I am planning on building it 41" wide 14" high, and 15" deep, single chamber with a 3" wide slot port. It looks to be around 3 cubes tuned at 32hz. Would this be adequate cubes for the 2 12's as the web site does not say and I can't find the info anywhere. I am thinking subs up and port back(or should I fire both back). Does this sound about right? Any ideas or suggestions? Thanx a ton guys

I would seal them, they will blow either way, but faster ported.

sub up port back is loudest in mine id try at least 3.5 to 4 that way he can reuse the box when he gets better subs

Sub up port back.

ok thanx guys. So I am correct when I assume it should sound a hell of a lot better than the band pass. I am wondering if I should go with a shared chamber or dual

Well i called American pro they said 1.58 cubes each and 3x8" of port. They barely spoke English, American my ***...... So I guess the 3.4 cube box wilkl be fine after disp and all it should be right at 3.1 or so

thinking of doing the side port as on re calc. Not sure how hard the bottom port thing would be. Any diff in sound?
