    Got all of My Stuff at Lowes, Plan for Audioque 12" HD3?

    Well today I picked up some 90 degree clamps, 4x8 sheet of 3/4" MDF, glue, screws the usual.

    I want to build a box for my up and coming 12" Audioque HD3.

    I like the LOW's and am wondering what a good size box is. Need to know tuning (thinking 33hz) and how much port area is needed.

    Max Height: 14'' (want box to be 14" high in any design)

    Max Width: 33" (doesn't have to be 33" wide)

    Max Depth: 60"

    Looking at a slot port design, also Double Baffle.

    Wondering if someone could design me one, or just give me dimensions. I'm really busy right now, so I'm just wondering if someone could throw something together, because I know you like doing this . I was thinking maybe 3cuft after port and driver tuned to like 33hz.

    Thanks guys!

    audioque plays a lot lower than tuning. they recommend 40hz, or like 35-36 for more sq. I was told not to tune it to lower than 35, but thats just me

    Tune 40hz, 16 sq in of port per cubic foot. Oh yeah, I'd say do 2.5 ft3 or ask dleccord, he has an HD312 as well . . .

    So it does play lower than the tuning of the box?

    If it was tuned to 38hz, it would have nice 30hz and lower lows?

    Well I just realized that a BTL 12" is the same price shipped as an Audioque 12" HD3.

    Hard choice, what do you guys think?

    Re: Got all of My Stuff at Lowes, Plan for Audioque 12" HD3?

    Now looking into a AQ Hd3, FI BTL, or FI Q. I want a LOUD driver, but with the SQ still there. I have a L7 right now, and it's no SQL sub really. I will be powering with the bxi 1500d @ 1ohm, in the proper sized box. Which is the best out of the 3 for a LOUD SQL driver?

    Re: Got all of My Stuff at Lowes, Plan for Audioque 12" HD3?

    I have a 3d designed box coming, but this is what I made up quickly.

    Does it look alright? Im not sure of the XMAX of the driver. AQ says useable throw is 63.5 mm, so thats what I put for XMAX on this one.

    http://subwoofertools.com/forum/port...&Vas=&Fs=&CE=0

    It doesn't look right at all. IDK whats right, can an HD3 owner tell me the XMAX? Is Useable throw the same as XMAX?
