Need help with box/port dimensions for a ThreatCon 4 12"! Building today!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a threatcon 4 12'. These specs are from c2audio's Site

12" Threatcon-4 Dual-2 Ohm

FS: 35.7 Hz

VAS: 28.8682 L

QES: .4082

QMS: 2.2965

QTS: .3466

MMS: 239.1952 g

BL: 22.9272

SENS: 87.0965 DB

Enclosure Recommendations:

Sealed: 1.0 - 1.25 ft^3

Ported: 1.5 - 2.0 ft^3 @ 35hz

 

This will be my first box build but my brother is helping me cut the wood perfect. Should I use 1 1/4" staples and glue or wood screws and glue? I was just going to copy this box build

 

12 inch Custom Ported MDF Car Stereo Sub Woofer Enclosure 2 CU ft Tuned 32Hz | eBay

 

But its for 32hz I want 35. Unsure how long to make port and how open to make it to get 35hz?

 

 

I'll be running it on a audiopipe 1800 at 1 Ohm.

 

Any help will be appreciated!

The side or rear port question is a tough one... I have had luck and failures with both styles. The Key to making a trunk setup loud is all about loading the woofers and port properly. Always use rule of thumb you need 6-8" from port to properly load and get loud. I like to side load on vehicles that are not sturdy in the rear or that have a large plastic tail light area. The biggest issue with side port is loading because the side surface is uneven and also box needs to be mounted to prevent it from sliding as you want to keep 6-8" distance for loading. -Chris
