I've decided I need a hobby, and what better hobby to pick up then one I've done successfully in the past, and is due for another go-around?
I'm building an enclosure (for the first time ever, last time I had a friendly fella by the name of moelester build one for me, and it was great!) for two 8" RE subs from RE Audio. Dual 4 ohm, bought these fellas between 5 and 7 years ago (a coil went out on one, had to replace) and I feel like the recommended enclosure volumes they have for the current generation is a little off from what I used.
Sealed, both subs in the same chamber, with a Phoenix Gold Xenon 400.1 amp giving them 400 watts. I think technically they're rated for 175, so if I remember correctly, I should make my box a little more compact to correct for this.
My current volume calculations have me at about .77 ft^3 after accounting for subwoofer displacement (.91 before) as a minimum, with a maximum size of 1.41 ft^3(1.55).
So... What should I aim for?
We're looking at a rectangle that's 32 inches wide (not really negotiable), between 13 and 15 inches deep, between 6 and 8 inches high, subs top-firing in the trunk of a Cobalt, amp mounted between the subs. I currently can't find the amp, so I'll have to dig through storage to find it, so I'm not exactly sure of its dimensions since I can't seem to find a spec sheet for it online. Hope it fits!
Thanks in advance for any help here guys (and gals)!
