I built a box for a 12" type e thats ported. the air space is 1.72 and i tuned it to 41 hz. How does this sound like it will do?

i have never used that sub before, check out alpines website and see what they recommend for ported enclosures. I would tune it lower since it is a SQ sub.

**** its already glued, how would i tune it lower? will it really sound that bad? i plan on upgrading to a type r later but how would it sound?

Peaky, most likely. To lower tuning, you'd have to lengthen the port.

A lower tune will yield a flatter response over a higher tuned enclosure...

what exactly does peaky mean, and what would u reccomend i tune it to then

sigh what should i do now

take out the port and try n make it sealed? or what

10-09-2003, 11:34 PM
well i mean if its gonna b better sealed then id rather do that but if its gonna get louder ported ill tune it down, jus tell me what i should do while the glue is still wet

well rite now im giving them 1.78 each in the ported box which is what is reccomended for the max on sealed enclosure. The reason i did that cuz i based it on a past post i searched for when u told someone to build a box on a type R. This is my first ported box so im learnin here

what if i did this, i have one port in there rite now thats 11 inches. What if i added a another port that was 11 inches? That would tune it down to about 29 hertz, can u do that or does it all have to b one port
