Personally for a sealed box i would go with at least 1.2 cubic feet inside volume.
A 19" x 14" x 17" box will give you a volume of 1.6 cubic feet (most common).
You can do the math by H x W x D then divide that # by 1728 (for 12" speaker) to get your enclosure volume (cubic feet).
The best enclosure depends on what your looking for in bass response.
The amp may no thav eenough to push these subs, these are top of the line subs, they probably require a bigger amp, if you are running other speakers through this also, you certainly need another amp, or a bigger one with more channels. also double check all your wiring.
Since the subwoofer surround is incredibly important for bass, this portion of the subwoofer must be air tight. I would recommend having a professional replace the surround. I wouldn't recommend this route, but you could patch a hole or small cut in the surround using silicone sealant or similar, as long as it sticks real well and is durable, as well as flexible, it should work just fine.
a sbwoofer is ment for producing bass by playing low frequency notes at an amplified power. subs move air vibrating off of your trunk and creating bass. a speakeris ment to produse high and midbass frequencies. thus having a tewwter and a small woffer cone. trying to get bss out of a door speaker usually results in very bad distortion which will actually blow a speaker very easy
A small tear in the rubber surround will effect a little bit of the reproduction of sound. It's an air leak and will not harm the sub but it will make a small bit of noise. Use epoxy or a clear caulking and seal it up unless you want to replace it.
First off, change the front speakers with a decent pair of aftermarket. Buy a powered subwoofer. One that has the amp built in. Connect it to the rear speakers. Bazooka tubes are great, compact, great bass.Adjust your radio so that the front speakers do not recieve alot of bass,you want it about half way. That way you are using all the power to push high notes, Bass takes a lot of power to push, reducing the volume. Turn the subwoofer to the maximum setting, and then adjust the system to your liking. It will take some time, but it is worth it in the end. Tip: set it while listening to your favorite station. Stations broadcast at different sound levels. Some pump up the bass, some don't.
turn them off and carefully push in on the cone (gently) and listen for scratching or scraping- push strait in and they should flow freely in and out if they DO without feeling or hearing scraping the subs are probably ok, next its either the amp is not powerful enough or the box is not soundly built, by that i mean its too small for the subs- is the box ported or sealed? if ported try plugging off the vent temporarily and see if bass increases if it does i would permanently seal the box
There are not RCA Hookups on any Raw Subwoofer. An amplifier takes an RCA input signal (DC) and turns it into AC to the speaker.
This is a raw driver. It has wire push terminals just like any other driver (speaker).
