    ported box for 4-12s

    ive got 4-svc 12'' fusion reactor subs..heres a link

    FUSION Electronics

    my buddy built a box for the 4 of them... and he said they called for 0.08 cu ft per sub. he built the box to 3.8 cu ft for all 4 subs. the box is 30.5x15.5x15.5

    my question is how much bigger can i go without messing up the sound? the box there in now is small and theres a sub on each side of the box and each end. ide like to do them all facing up and a slot port at the end. so if anyone can help post up and thanks

    Re: ported box for 4-12s

    would 1.5 cubes be too much per sub?

    Re: ported box for 4-12s

    The 'norm' for 12" subs is usually 1.8-2.5cuft ported per sub.
    That is totally dependent on install, vehicle, preferred sound...and about 1000 other things.

    I can't find any T/S parameters for those subs, so I would just say try a pretty generic ~8cuft box tuned in the mid 30's.

    I agree. Build a box like this and if you don't like something about it, then you can improve from there.

    Re: ported box for 4-12s

    you want to build a box after you biult a box and didnt even listen to it? You have to actually listen to it first then see what's wrong and start from there.
