    Build a new box. Tell us what Sub's and what kind of sound you're looking for, and box suggestions will come forth.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    those subs respond well in ported boxes. I had two tens pounding like crazy.... I have a good design for a serious spl 12 box but im not living at home (im at school) so i can only guess it to be about 40X14.5X15 or so with a 7" slot port. But I warnit sounds kind of crappy

    so it would be better if i made a smaller ported box rather than a big one?
