    fiberglass vs. bandpass

    i have a dual bandpass box which can be seen here http://www.millionbuy.com/hbxdc12.html

    however, i dont like the store bought non-original look that it has. i want to build a custom fiberglass enclosure for my two 12's. i just want to know what sounds better. fiberglass or bandpass. is there even any sound difference?

    Re: fiberglass vs. bandpass

    fiberglass can be used to make all types of enclosures, but if you are talking about the difference between a sealed box made of fiberglass and your current box then thats a different story. The bandpass box will create bigger spl numbers over a limited range, but any sealed box, including the one you will be building, will yeild a smoother response and create better sound quality. Now it may be tough to make out of fiberglass, but a ported enclosure will have higher spl numbers than a sealed box and will retain more sound quality than a bandpass box.

    What kind of 12's ? Box type depends alot on the subs themselves. Like said before fiberglass is a building material not a style of box. You can pretty much make any enclosure out of fiberglass if you really wanted to.
