    3 JL12W6v2 Enclosure

    Currently I am using a prefab with 1.26 cubes each sub separated. Was thinking to going to ported for more SPL. Anyways, talked to a local installer, told me he would build a ported enclosure with 2.25 cubes each tuned to around 33 Hz, but says box is going to run me around $400. Is that a little high? Tells me should raise +3db which is about 2x louder to the ear. Is everything he is telling me right? Any suggestions is appreciated. Car and system is in siggy.

    the 3 db rise is generally true, from what I've heard. As for $400, that's excessive to me. You can have someone design and build a great one here and have it shipped to you for less money than that.

    whoa $400. thats way too much. i bet someone in here can make an enclosure you that will get louder than +3db, for cheaper too.

    Re: 3 JL12W6v2 Enclosure

    I too think that is a bit excessive, that's why I was asking. What I was looking for is an enclosure that will be built into my trunk w/ room for an amp rack and battery space, but something that would be car show worthy. Any quotes?

    Let me know what it sounds like! Also how many cubes do you have per sub?
