    Box help for 2 Dc 12's

    Well I am probably gonna pick up 2 DC sound level 3 12's. Just wondering what would be a good tuning for these daily. They recommend 28 but I figure thats to low. My box is gonna be 33 wide 16.5 tall and 18 deep. Which is 3.5 cubes, my ? is should I make the port 3" wide and tuned 31.1, 3.5" wide and tuned to 33.8, 4" and have it tuned to 36.4, or last 4.5 and tuned to 39(which i think would be to high). This would be for daily use, just wanting to slam really hard. My thoughts are 3.5" at 33.8, just wanted others thoughts.......... Sorry for another tuning thread

    Re: Box help for 2 Dc 12's

    i take it your thinking 3" wide by 15" tall.... not enough for thoze subs! 4.5x15 would get my vote due to more port area also why you thinking you can only get 39hz?? tune it lower!!

    well change the port piece number 2

    put it to 18 inches and you get 36.6 hz by their calculation and 3 cubes

    Re: Box help for 2 Dc 12's

    ok well figured it out. I'm going with a 4"x 15" wide port. That will make the from plate 28.25" x 15". From cut out to cut out I'll have 2.75". A little under 1.75" between subs after subs mounted. I will have .50" from sub mounting screws to the end of the side wall,add .75 for the wood thickness, and get 1.25. Hopefully this will be strong enough. I guess I will double baffle it.

    Re: Box help for 2 Dc 12's

    dunno if this site is very credibal but it will help you figure out how much port area you need to make sure you dont get port noise. with 2 level 3's tuned to around 35 you will need approx 258 sq inches of Port area. again dunno how accurate this site is. hope this helps
