    new from UK... need help designing box for re8's

    Hi, i have two v1 re8 subs that i would like to put into a single slot ported box. I currently have a ported box tuned to 32hz which doesnt sound quite right to me and the subs continually bottom out with 125w RMS each.

    I was thinking of maybe having the subs tuned lower, maybe 28hz? (i was wondering if anyone could plot a graph and see what would be the best tuning frequency and volume for SQ).

    The dimensions for the box need to be 40cm high and 80cm wide and whatever depth is required for the correct volume. I would also like the slot port to be down the middle of the box with a sub either side.

    Thankyou! :thumbsup

    well, if you want the subs to play lower than 28 hz you could just go sealed. It will be a little quieter but your subs will never bottom out. RE8s require very little space sealed so it would be no problem to fit a box for them in those dimensions.

    hmm... really dont want to go sealed, i am loving the 'warmth' the subs give in the car at the moment but would really like to make a new box,

    if anyone else could help that would be great,

    cheers.
