    air space / box making question

    When I look at the spec sheet for my subs it has a few suggested sizes but the best enclosure is 1.25cubic feet..


    now is this the total size of the box.. or there should be roughly 1.25 AFTER the sub is inside?



    I think it just means the box has to be 1.25 .. not air space / area after the sub is in but wanna confirm this



    thanks alot

    that is 1.25 cf PLUS the space displaced by the sub. in other words, find out the displacement of your sub and increase the size of your box by that much.



    good luck and good listening!

    yowzers..



    ok this is the rough dimension of the box area.. 1 chamber


    8.5" high ..

    14" wide

    19" legenth


    thats the square footage for that 1 chamber..

    and I guess if you could estimate the area taken up by a mtx 6000 sub .. lemme know how much free air there is

    the cubic ft of that one chamber with out the sub would be .886(cubic ft) thats with 3/4 MDF. And if you need each chamber to be 1.25 then you may need to look into making/buying a bigger box( 2.5 inches higher, an inch wider, and the same lenght will give you 1.299 cubic ft.

    good luck, got a question post it................

    ok well its more custom than that..


    one end is higher than the other.. and such .. its for my truck .. but i rounded it out and made it sort of square.. and lost atleast 2" -3" on one end.. and 1 on the other.. etc etc

    i think each side .. will end up being right about 1cubic foot and then the middle where the transmission hump is should be good for another .5 cubic feet or so..


    should work out being just enough..

    seen lotsa trucks with 12's under rear seats and no complains from the owners


    thanks again
