    Flapping sound

    I have a rockford p3 12" with a ****** home made box. On the really low notes it sometimes sounds like a flapping sound, not quite overpower sounding almost like a rattling sound. Idk if its my box, or my subwoofer, it's very annoying though. Is this just over powering?

    well, why dont you take a look at the box when it's happening? how do we know if your POS box is tore up?

    Re: Flapping sound

    Have you played the sub when you were next to it? Play your sub to the volume to where it starts making the sound, then go to the back of your car and open up your trunk or hatch and see if you san pin point the sound your describing. Its kind of hard to help with out pics or videos to see what your talking about. On your enclosure you have the sub in what kind of wood was used? What size is it?(1/4",1/2",5/8",or 3/4") this also will help us help you.

    Re: Flapping sound

    Yeah it's either bottoming out or it's dropping so much below the tuning that you are just hearing mechanical noise rather than bass (typically only happens on high tuned bandpass enclosures tho..)

    sounds like u need to replace your muffler bearing...









    but in all seriousness one of the panels on your box is coming apart and hitting the other part of your box. atleast thats what the problem sounds like

    Re: Flapping sound

    I'm having this sound as well. If I lift a side of the sub out of the hole, the sound disappears. If I set it in or screw it down it makes an air leak sound or a plastic in the port sort of noise. This was the same deal as my last sub.

    Is if because I'm running the sub off 2 channels of a 4 channel amp bridged? I can set the volume to 16 and still hear it.
