    Enclosure opinions/help

    I recently purchased a 12'' FI SSD with the copper coil option for my 03 S-10 ext cab. I plan on throwing the recommended RMS or more at it.

    I am now struggling to figure out what type of enclosure to build for it. I have read good things about sealed and ported for this subwoofer. My goal is to have a good sounding setup that has the potential to be loud if I felt the need.

    I want to build a ported enclosure but am afraid of port noise seeing the enclosure is in the cab with me. I can build a sealed enclosure also pending peoples thoughts on this.

    If anyone with knowledge on designing enclosures has a minute to get the dimensions for a ported enclosure for me that would be great. finding the volume and tuning frequency is all I know what to look for when designing a box. I know there is a lot more to do with it.

    The room I would like to give up:

    3/4'' MDF

    Length- no more then 28''
    Height- no more then 20''
    width- no more then 16''

    I would prefer to build a slot ported box.

    I appreciate the help. I looked around as much as I could but could not find any plans for the SSD that fit my space requirements

    Port noise would only be an issue if the box was underported. 12^2 per cube should be fine, or use aero's...

    PM me and I'll help you out. Like stated above, port noise is only a factor if the port width (area) is too small. A properly built enclosure will eliminate port noise.
