    Need Box Ideas for RE XXX 15

    Well, I recently agreed on a trade for a new (so he says) RE XXX 15 Dual 2-ohm sub for my 8 RE8's. I am going to wire the sub to 4-ohm on my DEI 2400d. So, that's around 1400+ watts @ 4-ohm to the XXX 15.
    Now, I am not sure on what size of box to go with but obviously I want it to be ported. I was thinking along the lines of a 5 cu ft box tuned to lower 30's. Any ideas?

    RE recommends 4ft^3 tuned to 27hz for the xxx15 in an SQL setup. That's what Im gonna be trying first for mine I think.

    I just got mine hooked up. It's in 4 cu feet tuned to 32 hz... But it's seeing about 1800 watts. Sounds ridiculously good.

    Why not call RE, I'm sure they know how it'll sound in various boxes.

    You scored one hell of a deal for those RE8s.

    Re: Need Box Ideas for RE XXX 15

    I called and talked to a couple people at RE yesterday. One of things we talked about was boxes for a XXX 15. One guy said they generally do/recommend 3.5 ft^3 tuned to 32hz for street beaters, and down more towards 4ft^3 with a tuning of 27hz for more SQ. Id go somewhere in that range depending on how much bump versus SQ you want. Im thinking about trying sealed first again.

    Re: Need Box Ideas for RE XXX 15

    thanks, I will probably use 3.5 cu ft after displacement tuned to 32Hz.
    I always thought the 15 XXX needed a larger box?

    Re: Need Box Ideas for RE XXX 15

    I think I may go with something like 37.5"L x 19.75"H x 17.5"D with 1" MDF all around. I can't decide on tuning between 32Hz or 35Hz. Any suggestions?

    Re: Need Box Ideas for RE XXX 15

    I like a lower tuning, so Id vote for 32 over 35. Also I wouldn't lowpass a xxx any higher than 70-80hz, so I wouldn't want to narrow its bandwidth too much. 32 is what Brian (who I was referenced to as their expert) said they recommend mostly for a street system.
