I have a very beginner system and I'm a newb...please bear with me.
Power Akoustic BAMF 800/2 amp (something like that)
Kenwood HU, (can't remember which one)
Two older Polk Audio 150w 10" subs
Q-logic 2x10" Bandpass box (here's a pic of the box: http://images.craigslist.org/3m33o53l75Y05U35P3a8i4dd43288d269130a.jpg)
Oh yeah and my car is Mazda Protege 5 hatchback.
Here's my question. I have heard bandpass enclosures are efficient but muddy and loose/boomy sounding. I don't have a lot of power to begin with, but I rarely turn my subs all the way up anyway.
I just like a punchy, clear sound cause I mostly listen to rock and some torqued-out aggressive synth stuff from time to time. I think I would rather sacrifice some power for some clarity and tightness.
I am thinking of getting a sealed enclosure. Maybe ported? I would love to spend less than $50. Is this possible at all? Overall I'm fairly happy...not a huge car audio snob yet, but I would love a tighter sound. Also If I could save some trunk space that would be awesome as well.
Would a sealed box do the trick?
How much power am I going to lose?
Can anyone recommend a 2x10" box for cheap?
is this one worth $40? New MDF Sealed Dual Enclosure Box 2SL 10" 1.5 Black - eBay (item 370443048599 end time Oct-15-10 13:54:25 PDT)
I have a 2008 toyota tacoma access cab. I have limited space and want some good quality hard hitting bass out of my 12" 4 ohm 1000 watt RMS alphasonik sub. And i also havent decided on what amp to go with i want something that wont break the bank right now but not junk. Thanks in advance guys i appreciate the help. oh and i have only had sealed boxes and liked them but dont have the stuff to build ported.
Hey all. I really need help with a box design like specs and things. Im new to the box building thing so please keep it simple. The box it for a 15" RF T1 4 ohm sub. Going in a 2000 Dodge Neon. the limitaions are 17" high and 35" wide. Depth doesn't really matter. Please help me out with dementions. Thanks=]
I just got into the Subwoofer department with a single Alpine SWR 1043D running on an Alpine M500/1. I just ran all the wiring in my car and I'm waiting to build my box.
Here is where I needed a little advice. I want to tune the box to 32-34hz to get a good range of benefits from the 10". My thought is that the 10" is ideal for rock/metal where a slotted box tuned to a semi-lower frequency would be good for dance/techno. Kind of getting the best for both worlds. Opposite ends of the spectrum right?
I also attached a picture of the dimensions i used from the RE L-Ported Speaker Box Calculator
The recommendation for the sub is 1'-1.5' ported. The net volume before the sub displacement (but after the port displacement it looks like on the calculator) is 1.181ft^3 and the frequency is 32.2317hz. I'm assuming that after the displacement of the sub (.08ft^3) the volume should come down to about 1.1ft^3 and the frequency will increase a little bit.
Thoughts or recommendations?
Enclosure - Ported box. 2 Single-chambers. 12"
I noticed my bass sounded horrible the other day, so I popped the hatch and noticed one of my subs was literally falling out. The screws had completely came out of multiple locations.
To temporarily fix this, I simply turned the sub a bit to drill new holes, but I'd like to know if there is a way to make the box "good as new" again. Wood fill? Pre-drilling tips?
Thanks for any help
