Subwoofer Enclosures, Sixth and Eigth Order/Bass Reflex and Bandpass (http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxes6.asp)

I know WHAT they are. I am looking for am more in depth explanation. I know dustin has built and designed quite a few that is why I mentioned him...

I've never seen a 6th clamshell and there's probably a reason for that...IMO 6th's are a PITA as is, just do a normal setup with it if you wanna use it. The easiest way to do the clam with a 6th would be to have it be parallel tuned but parallel tuned setups blow most of the time...

I just want a clamshell because they look sick... I really just want some great low end extension, but I really dont like 4th's. thats why I thought of a 6th clamshell.

A 6th clam shell would be a pita for sure. The reason is because of how touchy a 6th order can be.

However, if you do a center ported clam shell it will react like a 6th order.

That is not much of a "clam shell". Clam shell's are based on there angle and called that do to those angles. Your setup there is more like a fluted 6th or similar. Hard to see the pic on the phone while driving. lol

It can, just depends on the overall design and build. It would would need to be 100% accurate in design and build or you will get some negative reactions from the setup.

I run a series tuned 6th order, or clamshell if you want. Baffles need to have a decent angle otherwise front/rear wave end up cancelling each other.

First try would play from 30-35Hz and drop off like a bish. Made a few adjustments and now it plays 30-50+ with authority.

I'd base 4th, 6th, or whatever off the subs you plan to use and what music you will mostly play. Mine will play into the 20's but I hate that **** and never play it. 4th orders are also quite popular for playing stuff that low. Some subs work better in 4th's, some work better in 6th's....

4 12's with 4 15 PR's. I'd love to see a big PR setup done. Don't think I've ever seen it.
