    Could someone double check me please?

    Ok so Im trying to build a box for a RE SX 12".

    2 cubes tuned to 33hz is what Im shooting for.

    So far using the 12volt.com enclosure calculator and the room Im working with, I have come up with a box that is 14" tall, 56" wide and 7" deep. That gives me a volume of 2.168

    Now I also used the port calculator and came up with a port that was 4" wide, 12.5" tall and 51.228 long.

    Do all these numbers add up correctly?

    If I need to add more volume to the box to get me the 2 cubes the only measurement I can change is the width of the box.

    Thanks in advance,
    ~Jason

    your waaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy off

    those specs give you .133 cubes tuned to 130hz, after all displacements.

    i assume your going behind the seat of a truck or something..

    there is no way to get an adqaute ported box for that woofer in the enclosure size you put in the first post.

    What about 60"w x 15"h x 7"d.

    Port would be 13.5'h x 2"w and 27" long.

    actually, you could put a 4" aeroport in there firing to the side.. basically just build the box as big as you can put the sub fairly close to the opposite side of the port.

    Re: Could someone double check me please?

    Sounds like trouble to me. Ive never built any other box except slot ports. I did mess with a round port calc on the 12volt also though. Could I just use a PVC pipe as the port?


    Of course this was working off the first set of measurements I posted.

    According to RE, the woofer can be used in 2cf @ 33Hz (optimal) or 1.5 @ 35Hz (compact install)
