Sorry guys, I'm sure you get tired of answering the same "will this box sound good" question but I've done about as much research as I can do. I've played around with the different box programs that are free (can't download on the company computer) and seem to be getting slightly different scenario.
The first box I built sounded good but I'm always willing to tweak things just to see. I also felt the original box was a little on the small side. Do any of you mind looking over my numbers and telling me what you think.
Both boxes are set up for a single Alpine 12" type R (not my choice, the owners)
First box dimensions were:
total internal volume of 1.9ft3 after speaker and port displacement.
slot port was 2x13.14x28.5
tuned at approximately 32hz
Second box I'm thinking about building will be the same basic dimensions but a little larger
total internal volume of 2.5 after speaker and port displacement
slot port 2.5x13.25x28
tuned at approximately 33hz
Will the two boxes in up sounding very similar or will the 2nd one be a little smoother?
btw...Alpine shows putting this speaker in a 1.5ft3 ported box. That just seems crazy small to me.
