06-11-2004, 07:12 PM
Ok i've never built a box before so ive decided to go for a sealed one as ported would be too hard to get right.

I've just baught a 12" kicker l7.

Can anyone tell me roughly what the best size enclosure would be fore this? Idealy I want it to be pretty small but I dont wanna loose out on any bass. :)

Any help is much apreciated. ;)

2.5 cubes net tuned to 30-32 ish. Should sound decently good, and willl be pretty loud.

For sealed I would go around 1-1.5 cubes net.

With the Kickers I'd go anywhere from 1.5- 2 ft^3. How much power are you planning to throw at it?

Gunna use a hifonics brutus 1500.

I was also gunna built the enclosure so its pretty low depth wise and make it wide, so does the shape matter as long as I have the same cudic space?

Be sure to give your subwoofer at least one inch of space (from the back wall). As for the shape, it matters about the shape only when you have a massive enclosure (which yours wont even be close). With the power your wanting to put into I'd guesstimate that the 1.5 cubic feet box would be fine.
