I went ahead and designed the enclosure on Inventor as always. Darker face means carpet. It is roughly 1.25 cubes tuned to ~31hz for a 10" sub that I am yet to decide upon. Let me know what you all think!

It'll probably end up being a Type R 10 due to budget constraints.


no to that port.

Why? It isn't in the way and it is just about the only configuration that wont get in the way.

How could I alleviate that without using a 4"? This is a 3" port.

The it'll interfere with the sub's azz if it is straight. That is a problem I realized while modeling it. :crap:

Eff it, I might delete the port and go sealed like a poon. I have no idea what subs get loud sealed.

none. just move that aero towards the back of the enclosure... should solve the problem.

It's a car, which means it will be in the trunk. If you can hear your port noise from the trunk of your car, ya got bigger issues than just port noise. Also, wouldn't a flared port help eliminate the potential noise?

I'll mess with it. I figure the type R has a pretty deep mounting depth for a 10 so I can't go wrong designing around that. If the port fits in that back corner without interfering with the motor, it should be fine for most 10s. I might try for a 4" also

Well, the port will work with the depth of the type R. If nothing else, I can throw a .75" spacer at the face and carpet over it to make sure. The only problem with the port being placed back there, is that I need to make sure it has room inbetween the port and fender well so that it can load properly.

Looks like it'll work. Might even be able to fit a 4"

Oh, I thought that was a 4". Yeah, I definitely wouldn't do a 3".

Lol using a 4" would force me to use a woofer with roughly a 7" or less mounting depth (eliminates type R), and the port would be around 24" long, or 4.75" from the other side of the enclosure, which I believe is enough room. It will also be roughly 6" from the side of the trunk so I think it would be okay for loading. I also just so happen to have a 4" port long enough. :cool:

Do the 4 inch, for sure lose that curve, and port into the cab!! If you're gonna have a beauty plate like that you're gonna wanna port into the car, not trunk

I would do sealed and do more cone area myself.

I think a sealed 12 would be better if you have the airspace and you're sealing the woofer off from the trunk with that front baffle. Obsidian audio would be a good choice for budget friendly woofers.

I also considered the option of a sealed 12, but it simply wont fit. The beauty plate also doesn't really hit the top of the trunk, so it isn't completely sealed. There is no way of me porting into the cabin of her car. Lol It has to be simple. I'm going to be installing this Christmas Eve after she goes to sleep, like a good brother. :P

Hey did you get this installed? I've got a sealed 12" type r in a custom wheel well box that looks slick and saves tons of room.

could you do a vent possibly? might be easier to achieve proper tuning without port noise
