    WTB: dual 8" sealed/ported enclosure

    Let me know how much shipped to 94612 if out of town. Prefer local SF Bay Area for obvious reasons. Must be decent qual, 3/4" MDF, etc.

    Re: WTB: dual 8" sealed/ported enclosure

    i can make you one for about 110 shipped. need some information first though... what kind of 8's, what kind of air space do they need? what kind of room do you have to work with.


    i'm good with ported boxes, and i have a couple box designs already (ported) for some 8's. cause i too wanted to go with a dual 8'' setup. let me know if you want me to do it, i can get it done within a week probably.

    I have a design for a pair of 8's that I made up the other day if you want it. It is .9 cubes (after displacement) w/ 15 sq inches of port tuned to 34 hz. The dimensions are 25x12.5x12.5.

    they are RF HE2s... for sealed, need .3 - .5 cu ft per sub. for ported, need .625-.85 cu ft per sub tuned to 35hz. probly prefer sealed for SQ purposes

    Re: WTB: dual 8" sealed/ported enclosure

    i'd go ported i loved the way my ported box sounded with my single S8L7 (kicker) subwoofer in it... 1 cuft + port volume tuned at 38 hz another forum member through this site was very impressed with the box also, when i sold it to him.


    but its up to you... i can build it, just let me know what you want. either or, its your box
