    Sealed Box Question

    What affect does the sealed box size have on the sound of the subwoofer?

    Most manuals state for instance that sealed box size can be .7cuft - 1.25cuft or what have you. So making it .7 would be what? and 1.25 would be what?

    Any input?

    Re: Sealed Box Question

    Seems like people are double posting a lot lately. Anyways, straight from a thread by Jmac:

    Larger -
    Pros: Better low-frequency extension, better transient response
    Cons: Lower mechanical power handling, larger enclosure

    Smaller -
    Pros: Higher mechanical power handling, smaller enclosure, "punchier" bass
    Cons: Worse low-frequency extension, worse transient response
