    Box for RE XXX?

    Its a 12 inch XXX running off a Nine.1. I want the absolute best size/tune SQL box possible, without crossing over into all out SPL. I want enough SPL to induce breathing problems with the windows up , but i want the SQ to be respectable (not amazing) but just not sloppy sounding and boomy, nice and tight. Thanks. RE's wesbite recomends 2.1 cubes at 28hz for SQL, but that tune sounds much too low. Thanks again.

    Why do they reccomend a 28hz tune for SQL? I thought 35-40 was SQL, and below 35 was strictly SQ?

    28 so you get most of the low notes along with higher ones

    Use what RE recommends. If anything, you could easily take the tuning on that box up into the mid 30s range for a little more output.

    I was thinking of just 2.1 cubes @ 35hz? How does that sound? Right now the XXX is inside a 1 cube sealed box, and it hits unbeliavebly hard and violently, it just doesn't have a good frequency range, i can tell its not playing alot of low low freguencies.

    Would an 12 inch XXX in a ported box tuned to 28 hz have much more output than in a 1 cube sealed box?

    It is said the SQ/SPL difference between ported and sealed after 1/2 octave above tuning is about the same as sealed. Porting that thing at 28 hz would give a very nice bottom end while keeping the insane loud it has in 1 cube sealed.

    What if i want it to have more output, without completely sacrificing Sound quality? I want people to feel like they are gonna die in my car when the sub hits (car is a hatchback).

    Re: Box for RE XXX?

    Do you guys also think a XXX in a 1 cube sealed box is not getting anywhere near its output potential?
