sweetness, i just found on the RE website that they have measurements for their enclosures with an option for SQ and SPL. This is great, but first things first, can these measurements be used on other speakers?

yes they can.........may not sound as good though.....every speaker is a little bit different.

if you call them, they will tell you everything you need to know, for exaclty what your doing... with your speaker and the power your sending it, cause the power you got is a big factor on what you do with the box.

people say the box plans for the 12inch subs are wrong.

they are wrong. very wrong. dont design your subs to the RE specs on the site. give them a call, tell them your situation (amp\car\needs\subs) and they will basically design an enclosure for you.

or you can PM Jmac and say "hey, can you design a box for me to fit in my car? i have this amp, this sub, and these are the dimensions of my trunk. i want the box to sound great and get loud, ill pay you $10 paypal. thanks!"

and he will give you everything you need to know to build the box.

good luck!

Whoa bad move. There dimmensions are completely off on the 30hz tuned ported box. Who knows what there box is tuned to maybe 189hz. It's all screwed.

Box - 36" x 15" x 13.5" = 3.23ft^3
Port - 12" x 2.5" x 38 <---- 38" is down the center

2.17ft^3 after all displacements and tuned to 29hz.

If you would like the indivisual cut out dimmensions just ask.

34.5" x 13.5" - 4 of these.
13.5" x 15" - 2 of these.
11" x 12" - First piece of the port.
23" x 12" Second piece.

Ok the side pieces of 13.5 x 15 go on last. For the port connect the 11" piece then put the 23" piece on the side of it for the bend. The front board gets a 2.5" x 12" piece cut off to have an opening for the port. Make sure the port remains 2.5 all the way down.

There is about 24 different ways to cut it out and asseble it, This is just the way I did it.

so RE's site for "any" of the subs are wrong? Or just a certain model. I built my box by the specs on RE's site. I have 12" Re SE in a 1 foot cubic sealed enclosure. I think it sounds pretty loud, but then again my sub is about 5 inches away from me. lol

Refer to my previous post. I posted box plans for 2.18ft^3 tuned to 29hz.

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 04:40 PM

hey geoffrey, did you sell your amp and subs? oh and i called re but no one answered and the machine came on, so i guess they are closed for thanksgiving or they are busy.

Dustin19
11-24-2004, 05:15 PM

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 05:20 PM
hey triger, on your box you have it tuned to 29 hz, is there any way i could extend or shorten the port to get the tuning frequency up.

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 05:23 PM
i cant get an answer, maybe they are on a late lunch or something? when did you call them

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 05:32 PM

Dustin19
11-24-2004, 05:47 PM
Probably not.......

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 06:04 PM
probably not for what the shipping?

bamaboy
11-24-2004, 06:12 PM
well i got in touch with them. My sx shipped this afternoon.and on the box he said the Box was fine, but after the people that use them say it isnt, im confused. But he said it should be good. But still confused. it will do for right now. then maybe ill make another on tuned lower.

11-24-2004, 10:11 PM
Well personally i would listen to the guys that actually make the driver and know what type of enclosures that would work!

bamaboy
11-25-2004, 12:19 AM
well best i can say i asked him about the 30 hz one and he said they were fixing it soon, but he said 35 hz was fine. so ill go with that for now.maybe later ill build another one
