    Box for 6 JL Audio 8w6's?

    Im wanting to make it as small as possible, but using WIN ISD the box looks terrible until I get up too like 8 cu ft. And sealed looked completely terrible with extreme roll off. Can anyone come up with a smokin box for all 6 of these thats under 4-5 cu ft. I had planned on all of them sharing box space. im looking for an SQL box leaning torwards more SQ

    Re: Box for 6 JL Audio 8w6's?

    Well my plan is too power it with an PPI A1200 and I figure you wire 3 of them parallel so they are all 3 ohms, then series them to 9, then do the same thing with the other 3. Then you parallel the 2 groups to make a 4.5ohm load which the A1200 can handle, it will just be throwing out a little bit less power, maybe what? 900-1000watts? Experts help me out!

    I want to see this in person Fan of v1 w6's and art series amps

    Try them sealed- each sub has itss own individual to spec chamber... Then you can wire the whole works however you need to, no worries. This is a difficult thig to call on, but lotta people say that w6's are served best sealed.

    Re: Box for 6 JL Audio 8w6's?

    Ive been checking out the sealed configuration, but I must not complete understand it since ive always been a ported fan. the roll off it is extreme on a sealed is seems. im looking at -7db at 31hertz with less max db?

    Vented I come up with something like 9.062 cu ft, tuned to 27hz with 1 4" by 4" port 3.16 in long and thats is at negative -4db at 20hz. Only draw back is the size of the box. Im lookin at like under 4 cu ft with the sealed opposed to 9 with the vented.

    Can someone help me out here?

    Re: Box for 6 JL Audio 8w6's?

    just FYI - winisd is completly inaccurate when it comes to group delay plots and frequency charts.

    its close enough to make guesstimates, but you should never swear by it. try to graph a TC9 driver (like the RLP) it will look horrible and be wicked inaccurate.

    just figure out what each 8w6 needs on its own, and mutiply it by 6.
