Building a slot ported box for my garage stereo for this sub, was looking for cubic feet and the best tuning frequency for sound quality at low volumes.

how can a 2 ft cubic box be enough for that beast. Do you have a suggestion or just criticism?

Since its for a garage stereo and not a car, I'd say go around 3ft3 with tuning in the low to mid 20's.

yes it's the new version, the maximum optimum suggest is only 2.2 cubic feet, can I bump it up to 3 or 4 cubic feet to reduce port length?

never built a ported box so i want to give it a try. Using an online port calculator a 5 cube box tuned in the high 20's requires 82 sq. inches of port is this correct? I'm going by the 54mm of excursion listed on the website. Is that an inflated number?

indeed

But people will continue to use them incorrectly and ***** about their lackluster performance. The RE XXX is a great subwoofer...
