    BTL 12 box..somewhat small?

    I dont want ot put it in a huge box because i dont want my highs to suffer..id like somewhat of an equal balance for each.

    I was thinking maybe 1.75-2.25ft^3? to 35 or 36hz. after all displacements

    anyone have any experience with the btl's in a smaller box?

    BTL 12 fully loaded off my kx2500.1

    Sounds like you should of gone with a Q or BL.... why get the btl if you want sq ? i mean no one really says its a cruddy sq sub but that isnt what it was built for... try the fi forums

    Yeah, from my experience with the sub...it liked a larger box with the kind of power you have. Now if you had more power the smaller box might work ok.

    Re: BTL 12 box..somewhat small?

    then ill shoot for a bigger box. im open to anything really..i got the btl for a reason

    but i dont want it to sound like complete ***. sq would be nice..but if thats what i was shooting for i agree i wouldnt have gotten a btl. i would just like some highs as well as the groundpounding lows

    should i shoot for the 2.5-3ft^3 area?

    Re: BTL 12 box..somewhat small?

    i have not personally heard the btl's... i couldnt tell ya... but from what i read most people are vary happy with the over all quality at the recomended specs... with a single 12 i think you should have the room to make a box to match the specs why not try that first and then go on to another box if you arent happy. I only say this because i have in the past tried to build to expectations with the end result only going to the recomended specs in the end... several times... i have a good feeling that you will be happy with it.... this post is making me wanna test out my BL's... **** im lazy.... its fathers day so i should get a few free hours to play... good luck tho

    Re: BTL 12 box..somewhat small?

    I had two of them and I tried a 4.4^3 @ 38hz and a 5^3 box at 31 hz. The soundquality was actualy decently better with the smaller box altho the bigger box sounded quite a bit louder on the low end with **** for sound quality. They needed a bit more power to them also.

    Im switching to a 18 BTL loaded to run off my t4000 and see how that sounds. Im gonna try it in a 6.5^3 box(want to keep back seat) at 34hz.
