I plan on buying a box from Gnomeaudio as soon as I get the cash, but I'd like to try my hand at building a vented one myself... Then compare the two...

So, I got one for ya....

I'd like a vented enclosure for a single 12" XXX...
SQL Box, so I'm thinking like 35hz (open for suggestions, I listem mostly to Rap)

I have about 1500 watts to put the the sub...

For space, I'm fairly open....

Outside wood measurements I have

36" Wide
14" Height (maybe able to squeeze another .5 if we
need it)

Depth, we can play around with that a bunch 12-16" More, What
do we need???

I've been hearing I should try a CRX style box with the sub facing up and the port facing the rear?

I dunno, I have had good luck facing the sub to the back, but thay have all been sealed boxes...

Lemme know..

thats the box diamond recommends for ported right? cus thats the exact same one i built and am running now (actually in the process of glassing and painting the front panel and covering the rest in vinyl or carpet. Im actually just tryin to see how loud i can really get this sub. Wouldnt run it daily by any means. btw whys that box called a transmission line box or whatever

well its not a port box, Diamond has specs for a port box, a sloted port box, and this TL box, notice how far the line (sound waves) has to travel to exit the port (did you see all the slots inside the box) (builds pressure the farther it has to travel (in a way there lots more to it but easy way to think about it). That guy in that thread gave me a hard time daying it wasnt a TL box (enev though he had never heard of Diamond Audio), but I used the Diamond Audio cut sheet I got from my dealer. This is the recomended box by Diamond Audio and it is great got two 10"s in a terrible car for audio and they sound awsome.

a ported box for a 15 Shocker Extreme .. 1200 rms
external 35.5 x 14 x 20...
sub will have to face upwards...
not sure how to build the port on this....
this would be going in the back of a civic sedan... the port, if possible.. i would like it to extend upand thru the back of the rear deck.....
tuned to about 35Hz

i got 2 12" magnums and i'm looking for something ported tuned to 32hz. about a total 4 cubes after displacement. it's going in a 95 jeep grand cherokee so size isn't really a problem. max width though would be 35". the rest doesn't really matter.

I was thinking about making a dual ported box for a pair of 8" Kicker Solobarics, just for kicks to see how loud I could get it. If you want to make a design for that, it would be great. Max dimensions would be about 30 inches wide, 12 inches tall, and 24 inches deep. Tuned pretty high since it would just be for spl.
