    W7 Enclosure

    Wanting to know the best enlosure build for a 12W7. I listen to mostly rap, want something that sounds good, gets loud, and nice on the lows. Maybe tuned to @ 38.

    Its going in the back of my Volvo S40 and would like suggestions on what would sound best.

    A JL 1000/1 will be powering it

    Re: W7 Enclosure

    Nothing tuned to 38Hz is going to be nice on the "lows".

    I'd go sealed, personally, but you probably wouldn't like that...

    With something as mean as a W7, you could go sealed and still get respectably loud, and keep the flat response and sq of a sealed box.

    Not really........Thanks for trying something different tho. I am just not much of a sealed fan. I just feel like I lose too much output by going sealed

    Re: W7 Enclosure

    Low tuned ported. Good to mix the SPL's with the SQ's.

    What type of idea did you have in mind?

    JL says it should be 1.75 cu ft tuned t 32....Does that sound right?

    Re: W7 Enclosure

    I personally would look at something more around 3 cf tuned somewhere below 30Hz. Those things really want a big box.
