    Second post - Help with 12" Kicker free-air sub

    Hiya all,

    Has anyone any specs on box sizes for the Kicker 12" free-air subs.

    I am looking for a box with a nice and low extension with a resonating freq of about 20-30 Hz.

    Thanx all,

    The stressed one . <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    if they are free air subs your don't need a box...just mount themonto a peice of mdf with holes in it for them to sit in..i think, someone correct me if i am wrong, but i beleive thats the whole point of free air subs, no box required....

    You are 100% correct - in the normal installation. I'm doing things a bit different - I already have 2x 8" Infinities running in a free-air mode in the trunk - if I add in the 12" I'm sure the 8s will flap and distort. I kinda plan to put the 12 in a seperate box firing into the cab.
