    CVR 12" Kicker

    Im building a box for a buddy of mine and the variables that Kicker gives for this sub has such a HUGE range.

    Its listed as:
    Sealed box volume: 1.0-4.6 cu. ft.
    Ported box volume: 1.75-2.25 cu. ft.

    If anyone has experience with this sub or a similar one of Kicker and could offer some insight on a ported box that would be great!

    THANKS!

    I heard a friend of mine's 12 CVR in a box about 2 cubes tuned to 32, and it sounded great. It hit hard, but still maintained some SQ.

    I would do 2-2.5 cubes tuned 32-35 hz for daily.

    Re: CVR 12" Kicker

    Yhea, im not that familiar with this sub, my buddy just liked my Assassin 10 install (we have the same cars). I did that one in a 1.2cube ported and it sounds really good.

    My friend has this sub and only 150 watts in a .8cube sealed box and dosent sound too good. I guess we'll try to go ported, thanks for the help guys!
