    Enclosure for American Bass VFL

    I believe this is the proper category for the second half of my questions. For my two 12's I have been thinking of a ported enclosure, but I need some help figuring out how many cu. ft. it needs to be, if it would be better in one big open space or if the subwoofers were separate, and what frequency it would best be tuned to. I am leaning more towards the SPL side, but I don't want to sacrifice all of my SQ, I just want it really loud. Also because of the blowthrough design for the truck, I would prefer the ports to be in the middle of the box.

    Common Features:
    * Dual 3" 6 Ohm High Temperature Voice Coils.
    * 1.4" Wide Multilayer Foam Surround for Better Stable Linear Exclusion.

    Re: Enclosure for American Bass VFL

    Well, kind of, but really I just wanted to know if anyone knew what kind of cu. ft. these need because I have only found the description of the subs, not the specs. Also, I have never built a ported box before, so I am not really familiar with what the box should be tuned to to get the sound I want. I think if i knew this, I could come up with a design.

    Can anyone help me figure out what kind of frequency to tune my box to so I get a nice SPL, with just a little SQ. This will be in my daily driver.
