View Full Version : Help bulding a box

I'm wanting to build a box for my truck, it's a 98 Ford Ranger extended cab.

I have 2 10" JVC CS-DX25 woofers rated at 1300w max.

Woofer specs:

10" Subwoofer
Max. Music Power 1400 Watts
Aluminum Die-Cast Frame
Butyl Rubber Edge
Aluminum Diaphragm + Paper Cone
Aircooling System
Strontium Magnet
Nickel-Plated Screw Terminals
Dual-Input Voice Coil

I mainly listen to rock and country music, but sometimes I like to throw something that's has some heavy bass to show it off.

I don't know how big the box needs to be to be effective. or what kinda box to build for it sound good.

I'm pushing them with 2 Audiobahn A8000 amps, if that helps.

Amp specs:

1600W Max, Intake Series Monoblock Amplifier
RMS Power Output:
400 watts x 1 chan. @ 4 ohms
800 watts x 1 chan. @ 2 ohms
Max Power Output: 1600 watts @ 2 ohms
Class A/B MOSFET Circuitry
PWM MOSFET Power Supply
Semi-double Sided Glass Epoxy Circuit Board
4-way Protection Circuitry: Thermal, Short Circuit, Overload and DC Offset
Air Induction Cooling Fan
Cobalt Blue Illumination
Speaker level (high-level) inputs
Preamp outputs
Nickel-Plated Block Terminals
Optional Remote Bass Control (Audiobahn ABR100T sold separately)
Optional Remote-mount Digital Volt-meter display (Audiobahn ADM100T sold separately)
Variable Bass Boost Control: 0-18dB @ 45Hz
Variable Low-Pass Crossover: 50-120Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 100dB
Frequency Response: 10Hz-40kHz
Variable Subsonic Filter: 20-50Hz
THD: 0.02%
Phase Control: 0 or 180°
Input Sensitivity: 200mV-8V

Also, haow would you wire them up to get them down to 2 ohms?

Thanks for all the help.

So, you want someone to make an enclosure for you or design you one?

I'll build it myself, but I would like some info on what would work best.
Or if someone can build a box at a reasonable price, that would work too.

I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to box design, but I'm very capable with my hands.

Like what kinda box, sealed, ported, and how much air space is enough, or too much. those are things that I don't know.
