View Full Version : Bracing needed for 4 cube box?

I'm planning on running a lethal injection 15" off 600 watts in a 4ft^3 box @33hz. Dimensions of the box are 31x18x16.75.

It is using an aero port, so there is no slot port to act as a brace either. I am using a double baffle though.

What do you guys think? I would think I need some based on the size of the box, but am I really going to experience any box flex with only 600 watts to the woofer?

Thanks

If the box is double baffled all around then you should be fine. I have a box that is 44"x12"x22" and running 4k watts and dont really have any flex so i think you should be fine.

The baffle is what holds the subs, so it cant be double baffled all the way around..

It WOULD be double layered then...

Id brace it still. My 12 box is 26x24x11 and it flexed pretty good before bracing with 1300 watts.

I try to do some sort of bracing every 12-16". You could probably get away with strap bracing since it's not a high powered set up...

Won't hurt, unless the bracing is way overdone.

If the box is built well you shouldn't need bracing. I have built many 4 cube enclosures for subs being powered with 3 times more power than you're running and I haven't once experienced flexing.

With that much power, bracing isn't absolutely necessary

agreed. i would personally probably do a dowel rod on both perpendicular planes, centered, but it wouldn't be imperative with 600 watts.

hmm, so basically I could do it, but most likely wont notice any difference from leaving it out?

i have an 8 cube box thats double layered all the way around and i have some flex so id definitely brace it.
