    Memphis M3's

    I was planning on building a box for 2 memphis M3's. My plans were to use 3/4" MDF. Box size is gonna be roughly 2.85 cu. ft. before displacements (roughly 2.0 after) I was planning on tuning it with an Aero to around 33hz.

    My only questions are, as far as port area what do I need?

    Thanks for any input

    Re: Memphis M3's

    Memphis recommends 2.5-3.25 sealed
    I'm getting that out of the Memphis tech resource manual
    that's common chamber but one sub says 1.25-1.75 so I' would go bigger
    I'm @ a shop that's a Memphis authorized dealer and have always had great results w/ recommended specs or bigger

    Re: Memphis M3's

    does their M3 12" really call for 2.5? Wow, I have an M3 and Memphis box and before displacement it comes to like 2.1 cubes.

    Do you think if I built my own that was roughly 2.5 cube after displacement tuned around 33ish aero ported would it be louder?

    I know that last question is pretty vague and open ended, but if you have any idea what I'm talking about it'll make sense (i know dumb right?)

    Re: Memphis M3's

    that's 2.5 for two subs minimum
    3.25 max for two
    i think it will be fine at 33hz would be better on a M1.1000
    or even a PR1.1000 but since they're under powered i would go BIGGER than recommended small power+big air=big boom

    Re: Memphis M3's

    Thanks alot man, I appreciate it. I actually have a friend that has a PR1.1000, that wants to trade me for my 500 straight out because he only has 1 M3.

    I'll look into the amp a little bit and see if there is anything wrong with it, because no one would trade a 500 for a 1000 outright
