    im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    so i built a wall for my 96 sonoma.( 4 re sr 15's) hooked everything up, and i was very disappointed with the output.

    ive thought and re calculated my airspace and displacements and ive figured out my box is actually .76686 cft to big.

    so im wondering what i could use to put in it to take up that airspace.

    would a cardboard box taped up work? or would the sound waves actually go through it. i could fill the box with towels?


    or should i go buy some more wood and build a box that takes up that much cft and screw in it?

    Re: im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    2x4s,2x6s.2x8s.

    But .765.

    Isn't going to make "that much difference".

    Thats less than .2 per sub.

    Re: im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    That little bit of extra space shouldn't hurt your output that much. Is is tuned right? Have you checked for air leaks?



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    did you seal the wall off around the edges?

    It shouldn't matter much at all.

    Re: im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    What's the port size?

    Is it a sealed box/wall?

    Re: im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    4 15s in a wall, should be decently loud, no matter what 15s.

    Re: im a ******* and built my wall to big.

    hell with that airspace, and the port size it just shows my box is tuned to just shy of 32 hz
