    Is there a diff if a dual 10" box is divided or 1 large box?

    you see.. i have the option of buying a 3/4" MDF dual 10" box sealed for $50. But its has no divider. If i get the dual 10" box divided it will cost me roughly 30-40 bucks more... is it worth it? I am also contemplateing to build it myself.. but im worried about carpeting it... seems like its a pain in the ***...

    Someone Help him!!!

    Really, the divider wont make that much of a difference except for bracing, which the MDF doesn't need. If you are wiring the subs bridged to the amp, get the single chamber box. If the left sub is going to be wired to the left channel, and the right sub to the right channel, then you need to get the dual chamber box because the different signals will cancel eachother out. Don't worry, I've had the same problem before.



    The perfect amount of bass will make you

    Hey I've had both, with the same speakers might I add. There isn't really a noticeable difference. The box with one chamber, was a little bit louder, but the sq was the same, it sounded very good. The reason I believe I had a little more spl with one chamber was because the enclosure was a little bigger overall. I also ran the subs off seperate channels, and I had no cancelling out. It's pretty much up to you, I say there is no difference. But that is just my opinion. As long as you have sufficient airspace for both speakers, there shouldn't be a problem. The only advantage I see that a divided box has is that if one speaker blows, you can still play the other and not have it sound like crap because of too much space.

    In a lot of cases, i go with a divider, it gives me more expandablity.

    If you go ahead and build your own, build it to Theil Small...you can ask around and people will tell you how to do it.

    I always build my own box

    I've used a few that were open chambered, I didnt like echo, and the subs fighting with eachother. The bottom line is, if you have 2 subs in a single chamberwhen they hit (if its well sealed) wil struggle a lot more to push out, because they are pulilng at the same air, creating a vacumm. So if they arent powered the same, ones gonna pull back while the other does what it feels. So it takes more power in a single enclousure, and sound can suffer if one little varialbe goes off.


    I alwasy say, before you drop money in a prefab box, build your own and test things, dont worry about carpeting it and such. And put it away till you need it again

    I have seen a website with a program to help you design an enclosure, but I can't remember it, maybe zane or someone else can get that for you.
