    Re: Makin a banpass box

    that question is very open ... so ill answer it openly .....

    get some wood, calculations, and misc stuff and put it together

    im sure youd love to elaborate on the question. we'd all greatly appreciate it.

    You'd spend more on materials, opposed to just buying one already made.

    Either just buy one, or make a ported enclosure. Do a search. They're many answers to the "sealed or ported" box on this particualr 'woofer

    NEVER buy a prefab bandpass.

    Some bandpass's can sound pretty good, but design is very critical; they are very easy to screw up and make them sound like crap.

    BP isn't something I'd advice a novice to jump into

    why never? mind elaborating on why they are so bad? i had two 10" 2000 kenwood exceleons in some prefab bandpass boxes and they sounded nice (aside from a little port noise.

    Bandpass boxes need to be built sub-specific just like any other enclosure.....and bandpasses are typically a little more touchy than other boxes to improper design (i.e. it's easy to make them sound like crap).

    I was stating that it would be cheaper just to buy one, rather than build one himslef. Now, if he knew HOW to make it (dimentions, ect..) then ok.

    Re: Makin a banpass box

    You would have to buy one built specifically for Alpine Type R 10s. Like most enclosures with an opening, if you screw one thing up, you're going to lose the rest of it, too. It's a 2 edged sword. I know someone who's Pyramid system is as loud as mine with half the power, because he has a bandpass box and the open interior of a Ford Bronco. However, his box was designed for those exact speakers, which aren't even made anymore. If they blow, he loses everything.

    On the contrary, Tomorrow I get to build a sealed box for my 15"s, and I have no worries at all about screwing up. 7 rectangle piece of lumber that need to be within at least 1/8" so I can attach them together. Whoop dee doo. Far less hassle.
