    Ported box -

    Recommended Volume (Cubic feet) - 2.0

    F3(Hz) - 35

    Number of Ports - 1

    Port diameter(Inches) - 4

    Re: ported box for 2 12" hx2s

    It has to be at least 4 cubic feet for the 2 of them, with 40 square inches of port(Slot port). I had my 1 in a 2cubic foot box tuned to 29hz. Let me tell you it sounded awsome. PM Jmac for like 10 bucks hell take the time out of his schedule to design you a box.

    Well here is what I think. 4-5 cubes with 40-48 square inches of port tuned to 29-32hz. Depending on the music you listen to. If you build the box correctlly it will be hella loud. Plenty for a daily driver. I only had one and It was enough for my daily driver car. And yes the BX1500d will be a great match on those subs as long as you have the RFD2212's So you can run it 1ohm. Just keep the gain down, the amp is 1400-1500 and those subs RMS is 500. They can take more but don't need it.

    If you still need a box designed then your going to have to put your max dimmensions and what type of music you listen to.

    Peace.

    Re: ported box for 2 12" hx2s

    I'd go 4 cubes net tuned to 28-30. 3x12 port, maybe bigger if you want. Exact box I built for a friend's car and is brutally loud. Get James to make up a box plan for 10 bucks and you're good to go. I can get you the dimensions of the box I built if you need them, but no gaurantees that it will fit in the Escort, this box is in a '97 Sunfire.

    Re: ported box for 2 12" hx2s

    if that box is actually the box in the pic, theres no way its 2.4 cubes per chamber tuned to 30. It is 4.86 cubes before the subs displacement, and the port displacement. The site claims that the port is 28.25" long, yet the box is only 21 deep and there is no bend in the port. I dont think they are accurately listing the specs of the box, or the picture is wrong.

    Re: ported box for 2 12" hx2s

    just build your own box man it would only cost you like30 bucks for the wood,and like 10 for the other stuff, and you dont need a plan, im sure your a smart guy, just take these guy's suggestions for size and port and go for it. that one on ebay is a rip, andshipping will eat you alive if you have an online person do it. bite the bullet.
