ok well I have 2 12s Audiobahn ALUM12N I want to build a ported box that will make them sound at their best but dont know if the current box is ok for them.
here are subs specs

Recommended Enclosure Type Ported / Vented/Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume .5 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume 2 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume 1.3 cubic feet
Maximum Ported Box Volume 3.25 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth 5-5/8"

the current box is a sealed box here are the Dimensions: 32" (W) x 14.25" (H) x 12.25" (D)
like this

Dual 6 ohm VC...yikes.

No real t/s parameters so I can't really say. 3.23 cbft (is that external or internal dims?) sealed seems fine for 2 of those 12's.

and im new to this also why the "Dual 6 ohm VC...yikes." just wondering?
that is external dim.

makes wiring to the amp and figuring out your ohm load different than the normal d1 2 or 4.

^ What he said.

What the wood thickness? Double baffle anywhere? Subs could still work in the enclosure. You could also invert the subs and add poly-fill to get more "air space".

it is 3/4 mdf wood. and no not double baffled. i had them inverted before in another box but all the wiring is messy so switched them back do they still hit the same inverted? also even not inverted can i still add poly-fill?

What kind of music do you listen to? If you want it tO be louder, go ported

well mostly just rap/ hip-hop i always had a ported box with a different system and like the sound of it first box that is sealed

when you inverted them, you added some airspace, and yes the same or better result can be had with polyfill.

I do not know what vehicle you have or how the box is currently installed, but the way the box is facing can have dramatic results in output, no matter what type of box it is. What amp do you use?

well i have a ford Taurus i had been messing with the box and found that when i have it facing up its hits better then the other ways.
and i have them running off a 5500 whtts class d spl amp. with its own battery that runs the amp
