    Sealed 13 w7

    I'm bout to make the switch from ported to sealed. Most of the comments I have seen say to put in in a bigger sealed box then what JL calls for. How much bigger?2.0cf? more? Thanks for any advice!


    I have a JBL BP1200.1 powering it. I am switching from ported because I want more detail on the low bass guitar notes, and I also want something different.

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    so after a little research, I found that a 2.5cf box gives a qtc of .707...can someone confirm this for me? Thank you!

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    i had one in a pro wedge box, witch was sealed. i hated it. had good output, but muddy as hell on the double bass. i think it was 2 ft^3 IIRC.

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    What would you guys do then? Keep in mind my goal here is to get it sounding the best it possibly can. I want to have punch up top for rock music.

    I've had it in a JL spec ported box for 3 years and I want something new. I listen to 80% rock 20%rap


    I also would like to save some trunk space so sealed does appeal to me.

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    honest opinon. if you wanted to stay with JL, do the w6v2. my single 12 in 1.75 ft^3 had amazing SQ. there are also other subs out there that would do better than teh w7 for SQ.

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    I'm not switching subs. I just want to get my dub 7 sounding the best it possibly can. I'm open to bandpass too but I've never built one before and wouldn't know the 1st thing about desiging the plans for one and I don't want to pay someone for plans.


    Again, output doesn't matter. I'm not like the other 90% of this board. I am moving past my basshead days. I want my **** to sound good, not to just be loud.


    Keep the advice coming!

    I should mention the car is a 2000 civic coupe so I have limited trunk space. My old Jl spec ported wouldn't fit from my old car.

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    That box is already in the trash anyways. So as of now I have no box.

    Why are you guys so against sealed? I would think with all that displacement its asking to be put in a sealed box?

    Re: Sealed 13 w7

    I didn't mean to say against all sealed boxes...just my application...


    And 4.5cubes is out of the question. I don't wanna stuff that in my trunk



    How big would a bandpass be?

    i love sealed boxes. 90% of the ones i've owned were sealed. however, this sub hates sealed. thats why i suggested something else. trust me, i tryed, and it sounded like ***.
