    Look on their site at the large end of the ported enclosures. Have about 30 inches of port area and tune to around 40 hz and you will have a very loud 10 inch sub. It might not sound great but you said you were after SPL

    apparently you should find the resonant frequency of your car before you select your tuning. bassbox pro 6 is good for this kinda thing. i'd say 2.75-30 cubes, and tune around 40 Hz? perhaps you should consider some sort of bandpass design if you're trying for pure SPL.

    Re: Ported 10 L7"

    hmm...where can i get bassbox pro 6? yea im prob gonna tune it to an explorer i know im in the low to mid 40hz range...i screwed up with my last box tuned to 36hz cause i thought i wanted it to sound clear but i have become more Knowledgeable since then.

    i am under the impression that ported is louder than bandpass. why do you suggest bandpass.

    Bandpass can be very effecient and tuned to play a small range of freq. You can tune that box to peak very hard at lets say 50 hz or so but will not play well above or below that.

    Re: Ported 10 L7"

    **** these boxes get pretty complicated...i guess when i thought of bandpass i thought of the crappy best buy ones with plexi-glass and neons...since its a hobby just sometin to do i might try and build several boxes...but im gonna go do some more research on bandpass thanks...

    anybody else out their messed around with a single ten

    build a sealed box. run some feq sweeps whatever feq hits/sounds the loudest tune for that. or near that.

    Re: Ported 10 L7"

    do you think i can use one of those handheld dB meters to figure that out...cause for me to get on a mic would be tough. how about the formula that bass mechanik gives out is that accurate. what i am tryin to say is the resonant frequency of your car the same number you should tune your box to???
