i need help i am trying to make a box for 2 12in RE audio se's.( ported / vented) just wana hit the lows on a daily driver bassis( not looking for numbers just wana feel it hit ur chest) so i was wondering if anyone could help me out.. i tryed using the box calculator but its only for 1 box and i wana make a dual box...

should i have 1 slot in the middle or should i off set it to the left or right?
there baby subs but should i used 1'mdf or would i be fine with 3/4?
will my kenwood kac9102d (500 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (850 watts x 1 at 2ohms) be able to power the subs or should i upgrade

I personally would do a slot port in the middle of the two subs, overall you want the box to be about 4.0-4.4 cubes or so, and for the SE's I'd tune 30-35hz. Probably won't need to brace it, but bracing would probably be better. The SE's can take up to like 800w or so per sub, sometimes more depending on soft parts from what I've seen, but you can obviously try it with your current amp and if you are unhappy then upgrade...

3/4" MDF will be sufficient.

If you don't know how to design a box and all of that, I'd recommending finding someone to do it for you. It may cost a bit of money, but it'll save you time and hassle. You can just get a design if you feel your skill set is sufficient enough to build the box yourself. :). I'll recommend FisherCustoms, or a lot of the people on this forum also do designs and cutsheets for pretty cheap :). I've had nothing but great experiences with Dylan (JBLCamry).

Hope this helps! Again, everything in here is just what I would do, other people may recommend something different, but everybody has different tastes ;).

800w that's funny cause the book on the SE's says it will take 600w

yeah they do but i am spliting the watage between 2 and i was wondering if i should up it to 1200 watt amp... get them there efficiancy range in wattage. BTW thanks alot for the info so far... so what will make this box hit u in the chest... i want them to feel every beat when i have it up. i will definatly have to matt everything( i am a saturn.. all plastic lol) rattle rattle is not what i am lookin for but i will fix that later lol. now i just want these subs to kick u in the chest every time they hit

ide feed them about 1100wrms a pair and at max about 2000w . if you blow them send them in to DD to have them reconed

Just because it is rated at a given wattage does not mean that's all they can take :fyi:

Seems like you got everything you needed from this thread also, good luck with the build! :).
