    Re: Ported 15" Brahma Suggestions

    I made mine 30"l x 17"d x 16"h (28.5"l x 15.5"d x 14.5"h) and a port that was 2"w x 14.5"h x 21.5"l. This gives me 3cu' tuned to 28Hz. I this is the 4th box I have made for my 15" Brahma and it sounds the best.

    BTW: I am using a Cadence A7hc for my amp (1200w-1400w rms)

    trixter- you say the box mentioned above sounded best, what were the dimensions for the other three boxes you had made for the 15B?

    Re: Ported 15" Brahma Suggestions

    One was 4cu' (net) with a port that was 2.5" x 14.5" and tuned to 30Hz. The other one was 4.5cu' (net) and tuned to 38Hz using two 4" Precision ports. This box sounded pretty good but I could tell it was still too big for the power I was using. I also tried a 5cu' box tuned to 25Hz using 4 4" ports; sounded pretty bad. Kinda funny, after all this trial and error and I end up with the box dimensions that Adire recommends....go figure.
