I recently upgraded to 2 12s. They came in their own box and sounded great but the box wont fit under this basket of electronics that hangs under the rear deck.
So i put them in my old sub box which i built my self which is smaller but fits. Apparently it is too small because in this box, the subs are about half as loud as in the box they came in.
So i need to build a new box and here's the question.
Does the shape of the box matter as long as it has the same cu ft?
Because the box they can in has the same height and width but is shorter than the one i built. It is like two cubes glued together.
Now the one i will be building will be just wide enough to fit between the wheel wells in the trunk and just short enough to fit under that basket of electronics, plus clearance for the speakers themselves which will be facing up. It will then be longer from front of car to rear of car wise to make for the same volume as the box these new ones came in.
So overall, the distance from the sub magnet to the back of the box will be less than the box the subs came in which is basically two perfect
cubes glued together.
Will this produce the same sound?
