Yes what are the largest dimmensions you could use. And you need to be accurate. So break out that measuring tape and get to work:D

Thats where the voice coils former hits the speakers back plate. This is caused by over excurion. When the sub trys to move past it's mechanical limits.

14"H x 26.5"W x 13"D - box
12.5"H x 1.5"W x 28"D - Port

It will be around 1.58ft^3 tuned to 32.5hz. Should sound good with a RE RE12.

Use 3/4" MDF, wood glue, wood screws every 4" and predrill your screw holes. Silicone the edges to insure an air tight seal.

Good luck.

You really need to pay someone to build the box if your asking that...

Its a slot ported box. The port bends in to the box, using a wall as one side of the port. So it bends in to the rear of the box...

Please read this site www.bcae1.com

ok so then it uses the outside wall. and it goes along it 1.5 inches inbetween them and runs along it til gets 1.5 away from the back and then goes along the back wall until it is 28 inchs total? correct?

Yes sir. It remains a constant 1.5" all the way tell the end of the port.

one 4x8 sheet should be enough to build this correct?

Oh yeah. Even have enough left over to build one or two sealed boxes. Just graph out your cuts on a scaled piece of wood. Or draw it on paper.

Just went and bought some wood glue, silicone chalking, predriller for the holes, and some wood screws (cabinet ones). Have to go Monday and get the wood. You think i will really have that much left over lol. Maybe i could build a box for my brother too, he is running off those prefab ones from Wal-Mart. He has a lighting audio sub (from Wal-Mart) with a jbl amp like mine. His max dimensions are 6 inches deep, 25 inches wide, and 14 inches high. Can you come up with anything for that?
