I recently bought a 2512 to play around with. Just wanted to get some opinions on what to go with enclosure wise. I will probably be using a 6" pvc tube for the port & I'll flare out the ends myself. This will be going in a '03 pathfinder.
The full-size recommended enclosure DD lists is 2.5ft^3. I'm looking for for a nice musical- sounding enclosure, this will never be metered. I was also thinking of tuning somewhat high, like 37-40hz. I listen to all types of music, a lot of rock, metal,punk, alt, house, prog. house but not really much rap or anything chopped/ screwed or anything. Being able to hit up to 70hz or so with some authority wouldn't **** me off.
So.. What do you guys think about enclosure sizes & tuning? Should I go a bit smaller than 2.5? could I go larger without getting "boomy"? Can tuning to 37-40hz work out ok or should I just plan on tuning lower? This is the 1st DD I've owned.
