    Re: Enclosure

    This has been brought up a lot lately using the search feature will net several results.

    Also, you don't have nearly enough information to get help with an enclosure design.

    Also, I'm moving this to the tech area for enclosures for you..which is where this needs to be.

    Re: Enclosure

    Here is a good thread about what information is required for enclosure help.

    About to make a thread about box design? READ THIS FIRST! :)

    That is part of designing. Volume with sealed or ported is largely dependent on space available and desired results.

    Also, what size drivers did you even purchase? The 2.0 or 2.5?

    Re: Enclosure

    You will be fine with 3-4 ft^3 of net volume with moderate port area. These don't need a ton of space to work well.

    They do work well sealed too.

    Haha, this is EXACTLY why I created that thread. First you want the volume, then you want the port area, next your going to ask about what tuning freq you should use. Please please please use the provided format in the future, I know many people on here take pride in helping with questions so help us help you!

    You are going to want to start around 64 square inches. But this will change based on the tuning freq, thus you need to review the videos in that thread so you can see how to get your rear port air velocity! Their is a ton of info there!
