How big of a box should i get for my american bass hd15d2. I cant find out what it requires on there site. Im pushing 1800 watts to it from a audio pipe. I have like a 1.9 Cu box now and it just isnt as loud as it should be. I found a range of them on ebay from 2.3 cu ft all the way to 4 cu ft.

Something like this be to small?

You're definitely going to need a bigger box than the one you have. I would not suggest buying a prefab box at all. You should contact someone about getting a custom box built, designed for your sub and personal application. There are several people on here who design and build boxes, but double 07 ; does killer work for great prices!

Im not sure about a custom one. What would the price run at you think. This is a pretty good prefab box imo.

Nice solid 4 cubic feet 1 1/4 inch mdf.

stom box will help you get everything out of your sub that you can. A prefab box, like that one will
work' but it will likely not be ideal. I don't have any personal experience with those subs, so I could be wrong, but I would shoot for about 3cubic foot box tuned to 33-36

That prefab is 150. Add maybe 70 more and you can get you a real enclosure built to your sub and wants. There's no way around it, that is the way to go if you want your subwoofer to perform as it should.

^^^Decent prefab. But for around the same price or just a little more you can get a nice custom one from one of the box guys on here and that's including shipping. Pro-rabbit is my guy. He does excellent work and is very reasonable. He's in Oklahoma City. Not sure where Nowhere is....
