    Re: bandpass boxes

    Depending on the design and size/number of subs, they are usually larger than a normal ported box.

    Bandpasses are also more difficult to design and can be very picky. One little math error or design flaw can throw the whole performance of the enclosure off.

    They CAN be louder if designed properly, but a normal ported box will suffice for the majority of people.

    Re: bandpass boxes

    They take up a lot of room.

    basically for a single 12" type R I was told I would need about 6 cubes of space.

    Single reflex?

    No.

    Reflex usually refers to a normal ported box. Bass reflex is the term most commonly used.

    After that it only gets more complicated. 4th order, 6th order, 8th order, aperiodic bi-chamber, etc. and so forth.

    Too bad I have yet to see any of his boxes perform even remotely better than a properly designed ported box.

    The only bandpass enclosures I ever got to work, the front chamber was quite large, especially compared to some of the bandpass designs floating around here.

    lol u funny
    last time i checked u live in IL and i live in NY
    i doubt u heard any bandpass i designed
    u may get a review from folks online but u havent heard the numerous boxes i designed in nyc

    if u want to know how my bandpass box sound
    ask slammed,dalucifer,dvrmstrng,6spdcoupe, 3.5maxspd,neverenuffbass,path2spl,and a few others that has heard my setup
    and they like what i had..the only downfall was i didnt have enuff power and thats going to change in the comming weeks
    so be4 u start bashing me ( as u always do when it comes to me designing something for some1) make sure u have ur fact striaght...its a reason folks hit me up for bandpass designs...

    Now what about mounting two of them isobaric, so that it would take up hella less room?
