can someone verify this for me? 2 12's need about 1-1.5 a piece.
25.25 (actual 26 but inside wall takes out of inside measurement)x12x14=4242/1728=2.454 total inside.
2.454/2=1.227-.07=1.157 a sub.
outside measure= 15.5 high 13.5 deep 27.5 wide
and if this sounds way off let me know......
my cust would be front face attaches to the top and bottom which sit all the way to the edge, the the sides go in the middle of all four walls? thats how im planning to do it! let me know guys.
if u want can u give me all info to bui ld selaed box for this kind of sub.

how much power r u using for the 2 12's
02-22-2005, 06:26 PM
850x1 polk momo carbon series, id say about 200 or so a piece.

with that kind of power i would port it...if u was throwing around 500+ watts then i would go sealed
u will barely move those speakers with 200 a peice

well i say those numbers not knowing the amps potential. and i honestly dont wanna go through the trouble of porting, buying plans and all i mean. im doing it for a friend that just wants a little bump, nothing brain shattering. the are W3's not 6 or 7's

i know...i posted a vid on here a couple days ago with my O N E 10w3 being powered by 600watts..in a ported box tuned at 29 hz...going as low as 13hz...and it did it with no problem..so it dont have 2 be the w6 or 7 to be brain rattling or handle that kind of power..i just want u to get the most out the sub with the watts your using...if u want plans i'll hook u up..its no problem...i think i'm the only one that dont charge...

they take 300 rms, i think they would do fine on this amp if tuned right.

PM the plans to me if u would be so kind, and if u would so dearly love me hahahaha, i have a eclipse 87121 that would like anice sealed box if u dont mind throwing me suttin right around 1.2 cubes, im thinkin 14x14x14 outter.

actuallly the eclipse need alittle more air space more like 1.5cuft...thats if u want to hit the lows and have authority doing it
18w x 14d x 14h = 2.04cuft (outer)
16.5w x 12.5d x 12.5h = 1.49cuft(inner)
u should be fine with the box plans i gave u via pm
