I got this box for free it is a Sony bass reflex porter box for 2 12's model xs-l120b5d. It looks like a well made box. Not sure if it would be good for my needs. Any input would be great. The only specs I could find on it was 32"wide 16"high 18" bottom depth and 15 1/4"top depth dont know anything about the port. All I know it's a round tube port

It is, however, Sony.

I know it's Sony but I'm not using those subs I just don't have any money to get a box built

haha i love the short, simple posts.

CL that bad boy and build your own box :)

Very doubtful that Sony will do those SE's anywhere close to justice.

The man speaks the truth. As much as people bash L7's I got a couple on trade,they are 8's I had Twisted_0912 build me a 2 cube box tuned at 35 with 32 sqaure inches of port and they sound just as good as the Fi Q 12 I had before hand. As you will hear any educated car audio person tell you it's 20 percent equipment and 80 percent install. I could make 2 Xplode 12's in the right box beat A dc level 5 fifteen in a ****** box. The enclosure is the most important part of your substage.

What size port and how long is it?

Without sub and port displacement, that box is a little under 4.4ft^4, which is probably going to end up being too small for the SE's, and more than likely tuned too high like 99% of prefab boxes.

Disagree :fyi:

You can make a Sony Xplod sound good FOR WHAT IT IS in a nice box, but you can't make it handle 2kW or sound as good as a ID sub. There are some things that ARE dependent upon driver. :fyi:

If that's the only way you have to listen to them right now, then I'd use that until you can build a proper one.
