    Box too big

    I have a 15 in an extra box i had laying around to tie me over for a few days. The box is too big and the sub will just about bottom out. Could i stuff something in the box to fill it up a little bit so i dont have to make a new one right away?

    bolt some 2x4s down inside there to take up space.. taking up space will change the tuning aswell though

    Put stuff in the box to decrease the volume.

    That's less than ~1.8ft^3 after subs displacement and assuming no bracing, which is fairly small for most sealed 15" subs. Just try turning the gain down on your amp. A smaller box is only going to do a few things, 1) lower efficiency of the system 2) Lessen the presence of the lower frequencies 3) Make you use more power to get as loud as you are now.

    Re: Box too big

    I agree as well, you need to check your gains and at least set them with a DMM to the rated output of the amp... Also check for leaks! That can do a number on a sealed enclosure!



    A 10 that thinks it's a 15!
