    Slot vented box

    I have been looking around for a box for 2 10" L7s.
    What would be best sealed or slot vented?
    I see slot vented or Slot L vented, whats the difference?
    What is really the best way to go to pound hard?

    There isn't a difference between a slot vent, and a slot L vent.
    Go with a ported box for the L7s. If you need a design, send me a PM and I will help you out.

    Don't kid yourself, you don't know anything about enclosures.

    Re: Slot vented box

    I built a slot port box using reaudio.com but have found that the program is flawed. Just a heads-up!



    Orion 4800.4 4 channel amp 100w x 4 Bridged
    Directed 2400D Mono Sub amp
    2- 12 inch Orion HP Tuned to 35 hz
    Box Demensions: 26H x 56W x (4D and 10.5D) = 4.0 Ft3
    Hertz MLK's 6.5 Comps
    Clarion MAX685BT DVD Player- Awesome video clarity and great sound!

    Well, it might be flawed but I guess it must be close cuz it sounds good and deep.

    No, it really isn't close at all. I found a design to be off by ~41%. Now it didn't have as much of an impact because the enclosure was so large, but scale that down to 1-2 cubic feet, and we're in serious ****.
