1. ## Questions about my subs....

I recently got 2 8'' american bass xd-8 dual 4 ohm, I did calculations to find the box volume cause I was bored, and for each sub its 1.01ft3?? The guy at american bass said I needed only 1.2 ft3 for 2 subs ported, my question is this, how did it go from 2.02ft3 to 1.2ft3? is there some other math involved when you use a shared chamber?

Can u show ur calculation?

4. ## Re: Questions about my subs....

Vb = 20*.615^3.3*7.121
28.63 liters

Fb = (7.121/28.63)^.31*45.30
29.42 hz

F3 = (7.121/28.63)^.44*45.30
24.55 hz

Those are the measurments I got for each.
