    Re: New build. :) memphis mojo 15

    I can still do bracing, Is there a link or a tread where I can read some information about bracing?

    How often should one brace under what conditions?

    Re: New build. :) memphis mojo 15

    Im south of raleigh, you're pretty far away but I appreciate the offer!

    Ive had a MOJO previously but sold it when I got my FI BTL 18. For some reason I have become nostalgic recently and I just HAD TO HAVE another one.

    My first box was designed by RADIO ACTIVE in raleigh I have no idea what it was tuned to but the guy there DEF tuned it for SPL.
    I have different desires from my audio system now so I designed a different box, one that will be tight and clean while simultaneously delivering MOJO fabled power.

    Here are some pictures of the MOJO box and then the box that I built for the FI.

    Re: New build. :) memphis mojo 15

    this new box has a port area of 7.3"^2 per cu......... notice both those other boxes have a better port area?



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Im not implying that your wrong, just interested in getting a more holistic ideal.

    I was thinking of supports but I don't know the rule or guide lines of their distribution.
    If you have any Ideas about it would you please share them?

    AS ALWAYS thank you for the critiques.
    I say this based on my experience building boxes and from what I have seen others do. On a higher excursion woofer (xmax > ~15mm) a bigger port will help to increase the amount of air moved. When doing a slot port you should aim for 12-16sq in per cu/ft of airspace. A woofer like yours would be towards the upper end of that. It looks like your box is somewhere in the 3.0-3.5cu/ft range so assuming that on the low end of that figure you should have 36-48sq in and the upper end would be 42-56sq in. By having a small port you are more at risk for port noise (whistling or chuffing) because of the higher air velocity, especially if you have hard edges at the port openings.

    I like to go excess with bracing because the box can never be too strong imo. I use 2x2 or 1.5in dowls. The 2x2s are cheaper but take up more airspace.

    Some examples of how I have done it:








    and when you add bracing you need to subtract its displacement or it will throw off tuning.

    You need a router bro. Other than that , some 45s in the corners, route the port and some sort of bracing top to bottom preferred. Enjoy that sub, the new ones are not even close to their level !

    One recommendation I can make. Try firing forward and seal it off completely. I built a box for a local customer had a nightshade v2 18 and saz3500 in a cadillac. Was so stupid loud and cut down on rattle

    Nope, only way is you have like 8 sq in of port area per foot. or i would say your tuned about 44-48hz at the length of your port

    Fire sub and port forward into the cabin and seal the sides off with t shirts or towels. U may like how it sounds.

    This....the port length is wayy too small, if you have 30sq in of port with 3 cu/ft then youd need about 20in of port length for 33hz, it drops to 16.5 with 3.5 cu/ft, yours looks like its more like 12-13in long
