    Sub box suggestions

    Hi guys,
    I am getting pretty vague answer from Polk Audio concerning a box for a pair of DXi 104s.
    Here is my situation:
    I just ordered 2 of the DXi104"s mentioned above.
    Id prefer a small sealed box. NOT for maximum bass output, but a nuce thump to match the internal Morels and not overpower them.
    It will be going in the back of a 2010 Honda civic and Id like the box as small as possible (to take up as little of the truck as necessary along front of truck up against rear seats)
    I will be powering with a Diamond Audio D3 600.1.
    Here is the response from Polk, which I appreciate, but huge difference in size options:


    If you were to build an enclosure for two of the DXi104s in a sealed box, I would suggest building the box with .66 1.75 cubic foot per driver of airspace. This is going to be a 1.32 3.5 shared chamber for these two to operate together.



    Hope this helps,

    Re: Sub box suggestions

    I would go around 2cuft net. Ideal sealed is .66 per sub but .75-1cuft will give a little deeper bass.



    Car: Chevy Cobalt Coupe
    Front Stage: Mids: Aura rpm 4", Midbass: Four Aura NS6's
    Rear Fill: Pioneer 6x9s
    Amps: 2 Rockford Fosgate T400-4's, and a T1500-1BDCP
    Electrical: Stock 140amp alt, Big 3, and a SHURiKEN SK-BT100
    Winter sub setup: Kicker F12a IB mounted from rear deck
    In the works: Diamond D9 12

    Re: Sub box suggestions

    Thank you for the suggestion. I too think the .66 they recommend is a little small. Ive started playing with the .75 per sub (1.6 total with driver displacement) idea. Just a big sealed rectangular coffin really. Simple, efficient, easy to make, lol.
    If anyone else has these subs or any other suggestions, keep um' coming.
    Thanks again.
