    it doesn't really work that way....just say it'll be this big and just drop a port into it. you usually say i need it to be X amount of space and tuned to this number and my max space are A x B x C. then people can really help you out better.

    well i know that but thats the biggest amount of space i can build it and i want it to pound. These subs dont sound good in a sealed enclosure the one they are in now is to small and i blew the seals out of it.It is a ported box i want to build a vented box

    Re: box builders?

    umm.. what does the manufacturer recomend for a ported enclosure for your driver? With a sealed box you can play with the size and get away with it as far as still sounding decent but with a ported enclosure it's A-LOT less forgiving! You need to find out what is recomended size & tune for your driver, not just build a box to fill the space you have or you could end up having a sub that sounds like crap! Remember if your into sound quality a bigger sealed enclosure might be the way to go but if you just want more db then find the right specs for the ported enclosure. Good Luck!
