    Re: Is my sub ALREADY blown or is it my box?

    The best way I can see you guys measured it wrong, was you measured the front piece as 14", then you added the top and bottom pieces, so it actually would've been more around 15.5".

    You're not screwed. You need to find out what the port displacement is and subtract that from 4.2 to find the net volume. JL recommends 2.375cf @ 34.59hz. You can glue some 2x4 blocks inside or wall off a portion of the box to reduce the volume, try to get down to around 2.5cf. Double check the tuning, it'll change when you reduce the volume.

    The other option is to start over and use the rec'd box dimensions on JL's website.
    It might be easier to just rebuild. The tuning is gonna be WAAAAAY off if he stuffs enough 2x4's in there to change the volume from 4.2 to 2.375, like if he tuned it to abotu 33Hz initially it'll be near 45. To fix that the only solution would be to start sticking wood into the port to make it thinner, but I think those calcs would be a nightare.



    And now... now, what joy will I have left to live for?

    I need to know how much to cut it down. I want to get a RIGHT box. How should I cut the width down. What should I cut it down to?

    Re: Is my sub ALREADY blown or is it my box?

    from i understand, and have read, some of these guys have told you numerous times ur box was to big and thats your problem, and yet you ignored, and its still happening.

    they also told you to get a vid of what you keep talking about, but you refused a few posts back, saying, you would do it later, and ended up never doing it.

    Go through this thread, and the thread when you had the 10, and read over it
