    Enclosure Questions

    I purchased a Kicker CVX15
    1000W RMS/ 2000W MAX
    hooked up to a kicker zx750.1 amp

    Its in a ported enclosure that has these specs (inches)
    16.5 Depth
    21 Inch width
    15.5 Height

    Port
    1.5 Width
    14.5 Height

    What difference would it make if i got a bigger enclosure?
    If this box was sealed, the volume would be 2.36

    Model CVX15

    Size (IN.,CM) 15, 38
    Impedance (OHMS) 2 or 4 DVC
    Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000
    Sensitivity (dB 1w/1m) 91.6
    Frequency Response (Hz) 18-500
    Mounting Depth (IN.,CM) 8-1/2, 21.5
    Mounting Cutout (IN.,CM) 13-13/16, 35
    Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 1.8, 51.0
    Max Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 5.2, 147.0
    Min Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 3.0, 85.0
    Max Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 5.0, 142.0

    Re: Enclosure Questions

    That ported enclosure is WAY to small for a 15. Also that port is small...

    You need one twice that size or larger.

    bigger boxes help your low end response and smooth out the response curve a bit, i.e. its less peakier

    CVX's like very very big boxes.

    Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 1.8, 51.0
    Max Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters) 5.2, 147.0
    Min Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 3.0, 85.0
    Max Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 5.0, 142.0

    this is what kicker recommends and you are not even at the minimum recommended enclosure size for your sub, just imagine how good it would sound if it was built in the middle of what kicker recommends.

    Re: Enclosure Questions

    With the power you're running, you need something more along the lines of 4-4.5ft^3 with a 33-35hz tuning.
