    Re: Box for two RE 12's

    Probox rocks enclosures are tuned @ 50hz....
    ... And they have an all around good sound. BUT! RE, JL, MMATS just don't like them... So 50hz is out of the question.

    I would say 38hz - 44hz would put you in the middle range, all around sound.
    ... Question: Which series RE? RE, SR, SE, SX, MT, MX, XXX, XXX.... X

    Re: Box for two RE 12's

    What are your max dimensions?
    .... If that's the car in your Avatar... you have a f*cked up trunk.

    I built my homeboy a 40"W x 17.5"D x 14"H - Tuned @ 40hz ... Sounded pretty **** good.
    ... That's what he wanted... I suggested something else, but anyway!

    * Note: I know what fits in the front of the trunk
    ... Give me the exact measurements for the rear of the trunk ( from the rear seats to the wheel wells - before they flare out )

    Yeah... I just looked @ his sig.
    ... Give me the dimensions, and I'll be happy to help you...

    OR

    Do you just want the design that I already made out for that same vehicle? ( I'll just tune it to 34hz )

    4 cu.ft. common chamber box tuned to 33-35Hz would get low fasho on those. Just make sure there's plenty of port area

    Dude I always see you reccomending high tuned boxes. This guy is looking for a GOOD sounding box. Which means 38hz-44hz is not GOOD sounding unless he happens to have a DD or AQ sub. And there is no way in hell a box tuned at 50hz has all the way around good sound.

    Have you ever even heard a box say to 32hz compared to 40hz?


    The guy basically said what he wants... nice SQ, decent lows and punchy bass

    Sounds like a sealed box will fit him perfect. Even if he didn't want sealed, 34hz and lower would be ideal for what he described. I would 32 or 31 would be the sweet spot ported with SXs. But again I think the sound he wants is in a sealed box.

    Re: Box for two RE 12's

    I'm currently using a 5.67cuft - internal - tuned @ 32hz enclosure.....
    ... And my previous enclosure was 3.3 - internal - tuned @ 44hz.... I know the difference, and I hear the difference.

    My 32herter kills on lows & highs just get ignorant...
    ... I said 38 to 44 because:

    1) " I don't want a box that's just gonna hit the lows " - 32hz = LOWS ALL DAY
    2) " I want all around sound SQ... blah blah blah " - 38hz( lowest ) 44hz(highest) = Best all around sound... * Note: especially since it's goin' in that Probe....

    probox's sound GREAT... and they are tuned @ 50hz... * Why don't you buy one, and try for yourself.... NOTE: don't buy the cheap one either... Cause they ain't $hit *

    .... BUT YOU ARE CORRECT!
    It does truely sound like he is asking for a sealed enclosure ( Punchy bass )

    Re: Box for two RE 12's

    All around SQ in a ported box would ideally be 28-29hz

    Personally I don't think 32hz gets the lows well enough, but yet again I play some songs with stupid low notes.

    And I would never buy a box. Nor would I waiste my time building one tuned to 50hz.
