    Icon32 12w3v2-enclosure

    Hi everyone, I have two JL 12W3V2-D4 on a 3.0 cu ft wedge shaped sealed enclosure powered by a 600 watt amp. They sound pretty good to me but many people had told me that I should port them to take full advantage of them and hear them slam. I'm curious to give it a try just to see how it sounds, who knows maybe I'll like it. I had a 2000 Honda civic four door sedan and my current enclosure dimensions are (remember its a wedge) 35"W X 15.75"H X 9.75 D1(top) X 13.75"D2(bottom). I will really want to stay with the wedge shape just for the added saved space, I don't want to give up my whole trunk just for the subs. JL recommends a port tuned at 30.1 Hz.

    Another question, is it possible to place a slotted port on a wedge shaped box?

    Those of you who have civic what size and shape of box are you running.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Oh I forgot they recommend 1.75 cu. ft. for each sub.

    you COULD slot port a wedge shape box but i wouldn't cuz what's the point? you'll get more volume out of the box if you just stick to a conventional rectangular prism.... take some max dimensions and contact jmac immediately lol

    Yes you can port a wedge. I just built one. Post measurements and see if someone will design one for you.

    Thanks for the comments, my actual box dimensions are on the first post, my two critical dimensions are: 35"W and 15.75" H.

    Taking my actual box as a base I think the dimensions that will change will be my bottom and top depth, which should grow like 1.5" - 2", but what about the port dimension, placement and tunning

    Is it worth it to port these w3 subs, anyone heard them on a ported enclosure
