    Need a box design for 2 SA-8s!

    Hey guys I need a box design for 2 SA-8s! I want it to be ~1.5 cubes tuned to 32 hz. I would love it if you could do it for free, but If you want a donation, that'll work.

    I'll be powering the subs off of an AQ1200D @ 1 ohm.

    hmmmm OK i'll settle with 1.5 right now. OP edited..

    I want music all around to sound good not just get loud .. That's why I want a slightly bigger box to make it sound deeper.

    What don't you like about the 1.85^3 box?

    I want an L slotted ported box. That's too fancy. Something easy to make.

    And I need the width to be under 30"

    Re: Need a box design for 2 SA-8s!

    its not too bad. you just have to split the port width in half and finish the length that the center run didnt cover on both sides.

    you also have to remember to account for wood displacement, especially when tuning low with long ports.

    What I always do is I figure out the cubes, draw that box, and add the port on behind the box, then all you have to account for is driver displacement and and bracing you choose to add.

    I've done a few in the 1.25-1.5ft^3 range with a 32-35hz tuning...seems to work well.
