    Designing questions for SE

    I'm designing a box for one 12" RE SE ported. RE's site says 1.8 tuned to 32, is that accurate? (been reading about how their boxes arent). Also, that 1.8 is AFTER sub AND port displacement right?

    So when I calculate how long a port will be...do I put in the 1.8 (which is what my desired internal volume would be AFTER the port)??? Arg. Thanks

    Re: Designing questions for SE

    i built that exact box... 1.8^3 tuned to 32hz...

    didnt really work to well... i plan to build another
    box this evening ~2-2.5 cubes tuned about the same...

    hopefully that will be better...


    btw... the SE's displace .15 cubes... and you need a box volume
    of 1.8 AFTER port and sub displacement...

    Re: Designing questions for SE

    i'm planning on buying two 12" SEs and porting them in the neer future. but you say that they need more space then the recomended volume? what about tunning, is that any different too?

    more space and volume yes. Tuning would have to be done individually but that would basically require you to do the same cubes twice so it isnt that hard.

    Re: Designing questions for SE

    does anybody know the difference between what RE recomends and a bigger box? if nobody can claim that a bigger box is better, than i would just go with what RE says what it's sub needs.

    Re: Designing questions for SE

    might sound a little boomier too. Basically hit harder and have mainly more spl. A little decrease in sq tho.

    geoffry did u subtract the volume of the sub and the walls and port yourself? And are you positive its 2.1?

    yeah im positive about the new box... it sounds really good to...
    you should be good to go with a ~2^3 box tuned to 32hz...

    the 1.8 just didnt cut the mustard...
