    Going to a bigger box..any big change?

    2 xfl 12s right now in a aero ported box, about 3.75 cu after displacement tuned to 33 hz. just wondering if i go to 5cu tuned the same, what type of diffrence will i hear, deeper? louder ect. cause i was told each sub needs about 2.5 cu each. right now im giving about 1800 rms to the pair but will be getting a aq 3500 or vfl 500.1 next month. so just want to know what change i will see with a bigger box. just looking to pound hard

    The net volume and port area will alter the response curve as will the orientation of sub and port placement.

    It will get louder on less power. Not by alot though.

    and why don't you buy the atomic 5k I have for sale? wouldnt have to worry about shipping then!

    more port area is usually louder but less woofer control

    And if ur gonna make a box that big with more power you will break your subs...box rise will increase and the subs efficiency will decrease...have a design done around your car not your subs

    $600.... you won't find anything near 5k for that price.

    and if you're looking for someone to make you a box, there are a ton of local guys whom are world trophy holders that would help you out. Normally id refer you to TNAW (Top Notch Auto Works) but the shop is shut down for a month while the owner is in cali working on a project.
