    Can anyone recommend me a Sub box for a Sundown SA12?

    Ported box obviously. I don't know what Hz I should be at

    I mostly all the time listen to rap and rock

    Maybe where I can just buy one instead of building one. Any sites?

    Id get one built on here, will be much better than a prefab, or if you know how to and have the tools buy a design from someone and build it yourself. I'm sure whoever builds it or gives you the design can recommend a good size and tuning for it.

    well for the SA12 it says 1.5-2.0 ft^3 @ 35hz. I've been using this site RE AUDIO - Box Calculator to help but I can't seem to get the specs right without the box being HUGE.

    I'd rather just buy one to be honest

    Well for one reason, it doesn't incorporate the cars unique environment which greatly affects how it will perform, get a builder on here to design one for you

    Re: Can anyone recommend me a Sub box for a Sundown SA12?

    The RE calc is just "off" a bit in most cases and never yields the same results expected after building it. Tuning is almost always off with RE.

    The biggest things to consider would be...

    1. Power that you will be using(what amp)
    2. What kind of goals do you have for the sub stage
    3. What kind of music do you listen to mostly(or most commonly)
    4. What car do you have(year/make/model)
    5. What kind of space do you have to work with.. H x W x D

    I concur with Pro Rabbit.....please don't waste good money on a prefab box..a custom enclosure built around you and your listening needs would be a far better choice.....good luck with your search

    Well, a standard size enclosure with a slot port is not all that large for a single 12".

    You should be able to do a slot ported enclosure with 2ft3 and generous port area and be just fine.
