Ported Sub Box Assistance

Recommended Posts

I have a prefab ported Best Buy box...it is loud, but really does not move air at all. I was going to build my own box, but found a local guy on ebay who makes boxes. Will his box make a noticeable difference in sound?

 

Also I am running an SAX-1200D amp and 2 12" SWR-1243D subs and this is a daily system. What should I get him to cut the tubes to? And what would that tune the box to? I am new to box building and that confuses me.

 

I do not want to build my own box, been there, done that and it turned out fine (sealed box), but I want to buy one so please don't suggest that.

 

Here is my current box:

 

Fierce Audio XED 12" inch in Dual 2 Ported Subwoofer Enclosure PS212.1 Black | eBay

 

And the one I can buy local:

 

Ported / Vented (Flush Mount) Sub Box Enclosure for 2 Alpine Type R 12s | eBay

Pretty sure Pro-Rabbit (DC Creations) is going to have a cyber monday sale tomorrow. You could probably get a much nicer box for about the same price.


I use gain as a volume control.

Thanks I will check into that, the box I linked looked to be built very well, but I'm guessing it isn't great? It is about the perfect dimensions for my van.

You need a box with 4-4.5 cubes tuned anywhere from 30-34 hz. If aeros, you need appr. 2 4" or 1 6". If you get stuck I can design you one if you want to build it.

Yep that is what I was going to say. I can work with you a price if you want to look at one being built. Just PM me and we can discuss some options for you.

Why so big? According to the specs for the sub it says I can use 1-2 cubic feet per sub so 3 should be fine? I am not building a competition system, just something to enjoy. Everyone on here says that the box makes a world of difference and that box is much higher quality then anything I could build (with wood atleast).

PMing both of you to see my options I need to keep costs down as much as I can due to having a newborn in the house.
