SOURCE: Specs for Ported Box for 2 12" MA AUDIO HK12X2 Subs

Hello joseph_delac,

MA Audio's website has the recommended box volume and port size online here. A ported enclosure needs 3.0 CuFt of internal volume and the port should be 48 sq/in and 14.5" in length. A 4X12" rectangular port would give you the recommended 48 sq/in. Using 3/4" MDF, a box 16X18X25 has an internal volume of 3.25 CuFt allowing .25 CuFt for the sub and port displacement.

Hope this helps.

What would be the ported enclosure airspace requirement for a dynex 10" sub?


For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. Box size will be 11 inches x 11 inches x 11 inches. Hope this helps

Tip

Box size and airspace for 10 inch subwoofers


<span>Regardless of your wattage rating on your sub woofer, sub woofers</span> differ in only one way. You get an "Open Air" and a "Closed air" <span>Sub woofer</span>, That being said, you'll have to check on your magnet which one you have, to make the boxes for that particular sub woofer. If it is an "Open air" <span>Sub woofer</span>, you should see a hole with "wire mesh" or "metal grid" in the center, at the back of the magnet. If it is a "Closed air", the magnet will be solid with no hole whatsoever.<br /><br />If it is a "Open air" sub, your boxes should always be sealed with silicone sealant, and no ports are to be cut in your box.<br /><br />Regarding the "Closed air" <span>sub woofers</span>, you should have 2 ports cot in the corners of the boxes just below your sub on the face of the box, and the port sizes should be around 50mm in diameter. Get yourself some 50mm PVC drain piping to use as ports. Firstlycut yourself a 100mm piece and insert flush with the front of the box. Test your sound. then try a 150mm piecs and test again. You should start with a 100mm long piece in the one box and add 50mm increments to "tune" the port up to 250mm, depending on the frequency of bass you require. Carry on testing the sound on each increment until you find the sound you want, Then silicone the port to the box for permanent fixing.<br /><br />On a 10 inch <span>Sub woofer</span> ranging between 80Hz and 100Hz, the ample box size required should be around 26 liters, meaning that you will end up with a box of 11 inches high, x 11 inches wide, x 11 inches deep. <br />Enjoy! <br />

I need to know the demensions for 10 inch subs


almost any 10 will use .75 cubic feet up to 1.25 cu ft. thats about the size of a milk crate give or take. a sealed box will give you the cleanest tightest bass. A ported box will be louder but also larger at the cost of decreased power handling ability and sound quality. If your subs are designed for small enclosures use a sealed box around .75 to 1.00 cu ft.

I need to find a good sub box for my 10 inch JL w6


Hello ama1228a,

You did not say what type of vehicle the box is to be mounted into. Many times, where the box goes dictates the shape and size you have to work with.

That JL W6 will work OK in a sealed box with as little as .625 CuFt of volume and a ported box with .75 CuFt, so you have lots of choices.

Here's a link to the PartsExpress box page. These are Goldwood boxes, so don't let the prices scare you away. They really are built well, and one of them will make your JL sound good.

Hope this helps.
