    Well I Want More Bass

    Right now I have a 12" tc9 in a 2.2 cubic foot ported box with 24in^2 of port tuned to 31hz. Its getting 850 rms from a kenwood kac-9102d.

    I do not have room for a 15" ported. Played around with tons of calculators... theres no way to make one fit.

    How do you think a 15" L7 in a 1.5 or 2.0 cubic foot sealed box would sound compared to my 12" tc9 in the box i have getting the same amount of power?

    not room for much more port. The most i can get is 30 in^2 at 36hz. Im thinking 15" l7 because it has almost double the surface area...

    I want both. my 12 just doesnt seem that loud. could be because the port is facing under the drivers seat (i have a extended cab truck and my box is behind the drivers seat... sub fires up and port pushes air under my seat.)

    Re: Well I Want More Bass

    just designed a box for a 12 thats 40in^2 port area, 2.2 cubes, and 36hz. The sub would be firing towards the back of my seat and the port would be facing up. Think this would get a lot louder? Do you think the port location would help a lot? (old port was at bottom of box firing towards bottom of my seat)
    thanks

    Re: Well I Want More Bass

    Or... i could do 2 12s sealed.

    How do you think a sealed box like this one would work for 2 12" type R's or L7s... itd be a total vol. of 2-3 ft^3

    One would be firing towards my seat and one would be firing up... the thing that resembes a seat with the arrow pointing at it is the drivers seat. I'd obviously get a bigger amp.

    Re: Well I Want More Bass

    IMO i hated my buddies L7 in a 1 cube sealed box. Could find other subs if wanting to go with sealed. Our try DD/AQ an tune round 38-40, heard that they like tunning a lil higher.
