    Icon6 weird but loud box design! help me heard bout it cant find.

    so i was talking to the local speaker shop and he told me he has 4 ported 10s in his car and a girl with a single 12 was almost as loud...and he has installed losts of systems, he said his 4 tens were some of the loudest he did, but second was one 12!? he told me the box was made at a different shop and it had a chamber that broke off into a port that was zig zag. a big long box with a really big port at the end. do any of you know of a design like this? what is it called???!!! and how do i find plans for one?

    yes i drew it in paint and thats what he drew in pencil, he said that was its layout and it had 1 12 pounding as hard at 4 10s

    Transmission lines are more musical than loud though. Perhaps his quad 10" setup was weaksauce.

    he's saying that it was a single 12 in the t line "hitting harder" then 4 10's ... so i'm guessing the "builder" he was talking to, had NOOOOOO idea of what he was doing

    no i believe he means sounds louder idk about quality but i really wanna try this enclosure i found a webpage that describes how to build one. Im thinking if i have a box that sounds good and can be loud then i can save money instead of buying multiple woofers? Would the t-line be loud but sound good?

    Your basing your wants on one guys most likely incorrect information. Build a quality normal ported box and you'll be set. If that design ^ was actually good, people would use it a lot more.

    yes... thats really the basic reasons to build a t-line... mainly for SQL set ups... but i would pm one of the box designers on here (pro-rabbit, ram, or buck) and have them design it for you... they have to be designed properly, or it will sound like ish

    eventually a 93 geo metro hatch. i havent decided on a sub but i dont want to go to expensive. would a type r 12 work in ported/t-line? and go with its rms of 600 watts

    a type r would like a ported better... if your lookin for a t line, i would look at something like an icon... but really depends on your space requirements.... as a t line will be a pretty large enclosure for one sub

    I dont know what you mean by look for something like an icon, but what if i built the t-line across and up right? if the corners are smooth it could wind its way around if it wanted to couldnt it? and for inside of boxes could you sand and finish to get better air flow? like a varnish?

    ssa icon

    thats a SSA ICON... very good sub for an SQL setup on a budget

    as for the t-line... yes, putting 45's on will help, but sanding could actually hurt... mdf is already very smooth, and sanding can just add scratches..... but like i said, IF you must have a t line, have one of the designers on here design it... as there are ALOT of variables that go into it.

    in that case, before you dump a bunch of money into a build... i would go to a local show, and listen to as many systems as you can... sound quality is VERY subjective, so what sounds good to someone else, might sound like shit to you
