View Full Version : Custom fiberglass center console for 8"sub

03-05-2012, 12:22 PM
If i build a center console from scratch for an 8"sub (not decided on driver yet) does the shape matter? Like if it is l shaped with the driver at the 90 bend will it sound bad? Looking for sq. here not overpowering bass as the driver will be pointing in between the front seats at dash.

It will more then likely alter the response curve, but more do to loading and such rather then the physical shape.

try it and see how it works for you. I have heard thousands of mix reviews on similar enclosures even ones I have done. Some love them, so do not...boils down to you personally.

Would it be better to build a square enclosure inside of the fiberglass console?

a good configuration is sub back port back, but make sure to leave room for the port to breath.

Sealed not ported. Pure sq build.

I have a ported Tang Band 8" in my center console. I used it as a sealed sub before and was not happy with the output. If it is possible to use a ten or 2 eights - I would suggest it.

if your just using one sub then id fire it back at the wall, its a single cab correct?
