Any particular shape for a sealed sub enclosure?

Postby Lemmie on Sun Oct 29, 2006 9:46 pm

I am remaking my sub box the right way. I bought a 4x8 piece of MDF and the speakers instructions tell me to make it with 1.25 cubic feet. But I am unsure if it needs to be a particular shape. Thanks

Nope, as long as you keep withing the factory recommendations. It can be any shape. For ex. fiberglass mold in a circular box. As long as it within factory specs. Moreover, you can build it small or larger, just depends on how you want your box tuned. Every car is different. What that means is, the air space recommended by the manufacturer works great in their Pinto but not in your Acura since the the way and shape of the car is totally different. You might have to find a car audio forums and do research on your type of car to see what works well. If you are willing to spend a little bit of money/time(actually lots more) down the road to get it professionally built and tuned with an analyzer, that would be even better. But definitely do your homework/shopping before you make a decision. Find a reputable installer. Hope that helps.
