I'm setting up my first system, trying to get 2 SA D2 10's. I've been reading and I think I want to do a ported box. I'm trying to keep some trunk space in my civic, and was wondering if there's a size difference in the boxes. Are ported bigger than sealed?

Also, would anyone have any recommendations on box specs?

Thanks!

Ported boxes should be larger than sealed, by a good percentage too.

Ported is almost always bigger. What's your Max dimensions for the box?

Even a optimally sized ported box for 2 sa-10's won't be all that big though. You can keep some trunk space op.

I'm trying to keep it as small as I can with keeping good quality. Are you asking trunk dimensions?

Max would be 40" x 16" x 16" and that would be like to the edges, so maybe 39" x 15" x 15"

Thats enough space for about 4 cubes. You could get away with something around 34w 12h 14d.

Alright, and I was also looking into building my own. Does anyone have experience building their own? I'm somewhat handy building things, and to me building a box for subs doesn't seem too hard. I will probably get the design from "Buck" on here, who designs for a dollar. Or is building the box more complicated than I think?

It can get complicated if you want it to be, lol. But if you are looking for something simple but effective, sure, a standard ported enclosure is not hard to build at all. As long as you have the equipment and a general know how, you will be ok and always make sure your measurements are perfect before you cut anything. Let us know how you make out. Post some pics or something when you're done or during.

you know what your subs want? how big of an enclosure it needs?
