    Got a question for all the people on CA

    Why do most of you that give people designs for boxes like to use big boxes for subs?

    because the sub requested to have a big box during conception...

    its all about the coils and dustcaps...

    Well a sub works more efficent in a small enclosure, You have more control over the sub with a smaller box and you can almost ask anyone that competes in SPL Smaller boxes tend to be louder!!!

    99% of all subs rather a small box compared to a big box with a smaller box I can run almost double the power and will have less wear on the suspension of the sub.

    I agree with that, but that usually applies when you have gobs of power to send to the subs.

    Daily street beaters might use the larger enclosures for more SPL on less power.

    example.. a 15" L7 will work well off 1000 rms in a 4 cube box.

    but... a 15" L7 on 2000+ rms might be better in a 2-3 cube box because you will have more control like you were stating.



    This is my basic understanding, if i am wrong, please correct me/us

    Re: Got a question for all the people on CA

    I had 4 Kicker CVX 10s not the greatest subs in the world but decent. I had them in a 1 cubic foot ported box each and was doing a 158 outlaw, 155 legal and a 156.5 Street beat( playing music for 30 seconds) and never once had a problem with me destroying those subs and they were powered by 2 Memphis 4000s so I had double the power handling that the subs can take. you try to use that type of sub and power in a bigger enclosure and tell me how long those subs would last..............

    Re: Got a question for all the people on CA

    Even with lack of power smaller boxes will still work well. Even in classes where power is limited for example Usaci 0-600 I have seen people use up to 6 subs and a very small enclosure and produce very high numbers with them. With L7's I had a box 5 total per sub I dropped down just to 4 cubes total and gained almost 3 DB. Im just trying to see why alot of you rather choose a big box over a small box??

    Re: Got a question for all the people on CA

    smaller boxes boost mechanical power handling of subs. most daily systems arent running 4x the rms of a sub to it. if they have the rms or slightly less then a bigger box will be more efficient. bigger is more efficient but reduces mech. power handling(to a point). smaller is less efficient but boosts mech. power handl.

    They do tend to be. Most subs will be louder in the smallest recommended box then in the largest recommended box.
