    Weird Enclosure Idea

    Okay so ive got a 12" sub in a sealed enclosure. It bumps pretty good but was thnking it could do better. My trunk is not sealed with dynamat or anything and dont really want to spend the money to do that . So i was thinking of building an enclosure around my sealed enclosure and venting it into the car.


    I figured itd sound louder bc itll have less air to pressurize and the sound will be focused forward rather than outward.

    My only concern is getting a bandpass sort of sound, id rather have SQ than volume. Any thoughts as to whether itll have a significant effect one way or another?

    you would basicly be building a 4th order bandpass... but doing it that way, it will be almost impossible to tune properly, and will end up sounding like shit

    I think your best bet would be to just do a wall with it and not try and encase it

    Re: Weird Enclosure Idea

    why would he do a wall, in his trunk?

    OP... fyi, it would be alot easier (and better sounding) to just build a properly tuned ported enclosure

    Re: Weird Enclosure Idea

    The way i look at it the trunk is its own psudo-enclosure, if i make said closure smasller and selaed but not too small ill retain most of my sq and gain some vlume in the process. What would just a wall do for me?

    for a proper "wall" you would be deleting your back seats...

    the trunk really isnt a "psudo-enclosure" ... not at all. doing a set up like your describing (pretty much a 4th order), wouldnt help your sq... you would have a huge peak in tuning, and a flat line everywhere else... basiclly, your subs will only "hit" at a certain frequency.... making it more of an spl set up. trust me, building yourself a properly tuned, ported enclosure will yield FAR better results than said set up

    dynomat ( or we'll just say deadner.... cuz dynomat is crap IMO) is used for a few different things... it doesnt "seal" your trunk, as many dumb people will tell you. it helps with vehicle resonance... pretty much will help sound waves compress properly, and stops alot of rattles
