    BUILDING BOXXXX Questions

    Whats up everyone im new here and im starting my build, getting ready for car season. I actually posted another thread looking for 2 12" subs to fit in my subaru forester. I want the box to be 4.5 - 4.7 cubes tuned to 32-34 hz but dont know which software to use. i recently used re box calculator to build my cousins boxx, apperently tuned to 32 hz for a single type r. the box plays way low and it seems likes its tuned too low. which software should i use to get best results.. right now im lookin at torres box tuning, and re box calc. any suggestions?

    side note, does the more subs you get mean u can tune the box higher and it will still play loww?

    Re: BUILDING BOXXXX Questions

    I'm still confused on how to go about measuring the box and what is truly right... i went onto the12volt and used my dimensions to find just the box volume and it gave me a different answer than if i do it out. i might be doing something wrong here but i thought the way to get any box volume in ft^3 was to get outside dimensions subtrack thickness from L, W and H. Then multiply and divide answer by 1728. that would be the volume of the boxx.? my dimensions are 36 *14 *20. i got a volume of 5.2 and the 12 volt said 4.6??? anyone know anything on how to go about this?

    4.6 is right....take 1.5"(if you're using 3/4" wood) off each dimension to find the internal volume
