    Enclosure design for a Dayton Refrence HO 12" sub.

    I was wondering what box would be suitable for my Dayton Reference HO 12" sub? I can't find any suggested box sizes on the PartsExpress web site. Admittedly, I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to designing a box using the sub parameters.

    I picked up an Orion amp that will do 800watts at 4Ohm, so power isn't a problem. Also, I generally don't listen to music very loudly at all, but I might want to rattle my teeth out every once in a while.

    Does anybody have any experience with this sub? What enclosure size/ design would you recommend?

    Assuming you were wanting sealed....

    Vb = Vas/((Qtc/Qts)^2-1)

    Vb = 1.62/((.707/.4)^2-1)

    Vb = .76ft^3

    So, ~.75ft^3 for a Qtc of .707, according to the specs on PE's website.

    Thanks.

    Do you think it would perform well in a vented box?

    [EDIT]

    Also, thanks for the formula as well

    If someone wants to design a ported box for the sub, I could throw a few dollars their way.
