    Looking for something different...

    New to the forums. I have 2 Kicker CVR 12s wired at 1ohms from a Planet Audio RXD1000. They are in seperate .88 ft sealed boxes. I want to go ported. I am looking into either 2 RE SE 12s or one SX 12. The box I designed is 56" long x 15" high x 6" top depth x 9" bottom depth. The box is tuned to 33 hrtz. I designed the box on RE Audio's box calculator. It came out to 2.347 cubic feet. The box is going in my 04 single cab Silverado. What I am wanting to know is can I run both SE 12s in that box, or would I have to stick with one SX12? The recc'd box for the SE12 is 2ft at 33hrtz. Can I run 2 of them in that box, or do I have to double the volume for two subs? I know a little bit about car audio, but when it comes to the math behing designing a ported box, Im hopeless. I hooked the system up myself. The truck came with the PA amp, some cheap *** Audiobahn 10s, and some cheap Hifonics Atlas comps in the doors. I just put in the CVR 12s and an Alpine deck.


    Also, any other sub reccomendations? The max mounting depth I can work with is 6 3/4". My budget is $500 for subs.

    Im not sure what the mounting depth of SEs ans SXs are but im pretty sure its greater then 6"....if not id put 1 SE 12 in that box you designed.

    edit: mounting depth on both subs is 6.5" you're skinning it...did your mounting depth account for the slope of the front of the box?

    They are both 6.5" deep.

    How do the CVRs compare to the SEs?

    The CVRs hit pretty good but dont sound all that great to me.

    the enclosure has a lot to do with the performance of a sub.

    I'm personally partial to RE over Kicker.

    From a financial standpoint it may be smarter to just build a nice box and see how the CVRs sound in it..you may decide you dont need to buy different subs.

    port the box you have now with pvc pipe, and stuff it full of polyfill. thats what i did with my three re 8"s and i noticed a HUGE difference and didn't have to spend but $10!
    worth a try
