View Full Version : Enclosure suggestions for Pyle PLBW84

11-24-2009, 03:49 PM
I havent been able to find too much information on these subs as far as enclosure recommendations. I will probably wind up going with a ported box just because they are low power and small, but i have no idea how to look at the specs i have seen and create a proper design. If anyone can take these specs, find others, or just flat out recommend a volume suggestion it would be greatly appreciated it.

I want ____ cuft @ 30hz per sub.

yeah i feel you, but all jokes aside, my girls father went out and bought these after i gave him multiple suggestions. There isnt much we can do about the products so im going to try to make a decent looking/sounding enclosure, but i have never owned an 8" so i have no idea what size to make the box.

I'd prolly just give em each .75 if you're gonna go ported.

Well I suggested multiple other better subs for what was spent. Her parents bought them and disregarded my suggestions.

Fs 60hz :crap:
Ehh...not the best subs in the world especially with the amp that she was given. They arent THAT bad though. It's better than nothing and they dont sound bad at all IMO.
