    Ported Sub Box Assistance

    I have a prefab ported Best Buy box...it is loud, but really does not move air at all. I was going to build my own box, but found a local guy on ebay who makes boxes. Will his box make a noticeable difference in sound?

    Also I am running an SAX-1200D amp and 2 12" SWR-1243D subs and this is a daily system. What should I get him to cut the tubes to? And what would that tune the box to? I am new to box building and that confuses me.

    I do not want to build my own box, been there, done that and it turned out fine (sealed box), but I want to buy one so please don't suggest that.

    Here is my current box:

    Fierce Audio XED 12" inch in Dual 2 Ported Subwoofer Enclosure PS212.1 Black | eBay

    And the one I can buy local:

    Ported / Vented (Flush Mount) Sub Box Enclosure for 2 Alpine Type R 12s | eBay



    Running small stereos so I can haul a stroller.

    Pretty sure Pro-Rabbit (DC Creations) is going to have a cyber monday sale tomorrow. You could probably get a much nicer box for about the same price.



    I use gain as a volume control.

    Re: Ported Sub Box Assistance

    Thanks I will check into that, the box I linked looked to be built very well, but I'm guessing it isn't great? It is about the perfect dimensions for my van.

    Re: Ported Sub Box Assistance

    You need a box with 4-4.5 cubes tuned anywhere from 30-34 hz. If aeros, you need appr. 2 4" or 1 6". If you get stuck I can design you one if you want to build it.

    Yep that is what I was going to say. I can work with you a price if you want to look at one being built. Just PM me and we can discuss some options for you.

    Re: Ported Sub Box Assistance

    Why so big? According to the specs for the sub it says I can use 1-2 cubic feet per sub so 3 should be fine? I am not building a competition system, just something to enjoy. Everyone on here says that the box makes a world of difference and that box is much higher quality then anything I could build (with wood atleast).

    PMing both of you to see my options I need to keep costs down as much as I can due to having a newborn in the house.
