Finding a good box for the sub

I'm looking a ordering a bandpass box for my single 10" sub. the box i'm looking at is 11 3/4"h x 15 3/4"w x 13"d, 1.25cu. ft. it is 5/8 outer with a 3/4 center that the speaker mounts to it is ported and has a plexiglass window on front. Should this be a good box since these subs are small enclosure woofers.

< I design sub enclosures for a living so you are in luck. > The one thing to remember is that generic sub boxes are just that - generic. Even if they have a fancy brand name, unless they are built for the sub you are using you will be making a guess as to how well it works. Don't get me wrong though it may work well in that band pass box, but just imagine how much better it could sound in a custom enclosure. Having said that you have the right idea, and bandpass enclosures can be power-full. If you send me (dynami28@charter.net)
the specs that came with the sub I can give you an idea of what kind of box you should get or, if you want to build your own, I can do the specs on that too. Personally I stay away from bandpass enclosures for one reason. When the subs distorts or gets pushed too hard you can't hear it happening. Since the sub is completely enclosed it's somewhat muffled or insulated so that distortion is hard to hear, which can blow up subs. A good ported enclosure would do well and basic plans should be on Lanzar's website, or available from myself. I do not recommend a sealed enclosure unless these subs will see light duty and you don't expect ground shaking bass. They can sound okay in a sealed box but most car audio enthusiasts like the ported boxes for their increased output and lower tones. Email me if you can't find the specs on those subs I might still have them on file. (Also the enclosure should be at least 3/4" thick MDF with bracing throughout.)

Hi there,

Chances are these are 12" in size (measure the diameter of the speaker - from one side to the next).

Usually, if subs come with a bandpass box, the box would have been measured for the correct air space.

However, if you want to know how to design your own enclosure then I will direct you to this web page, which can give you some basic understanding:

Check the specs on your speakers and the amount of cubic space it needs to breathe and amount of porting required and then check the box to see if it meets that requirement otherwise if it doesn't it will sound like **** and be highly distorted.

Not knowing your musical preference, take a look at this spec sheet and pick the sound you'd most like. The bandpass design usually gives the most SPL, but a larger box is probably deeper while still having good volume. Some audio purists say a sealed box sounds the best, subjectively, but the SPL isn't as great.

How to mount a bandpass sub


usually you will get the best sound with the box mounted approximately 3" away from rear of trunk with speaker facing toward the rear of trunk if it is a single speaker enclosure you want to do the same just offset it to one side of the trunk corners always amplify sound however just so you know 10's are not really made for low bass they usually have more of a hard hitting pound instead of a low rumble usually 12's will give you the low bass better and it also depends on what kind of box a vented box would be best for low bass sealed box gives you tighter bass but you need more power ported is good for low bass but gets sloppy when loud and a bandpass is used for loud hard hitting bass

Choice of speaker box


If you're looking for SPL (LOUD) go vented.
If you're looking for tonal accuracy (Sound Quality) go sealed.

The tradeoff between the two is that a ported enclosure will allow your subs to play highly powered. More air flow - better cooling of the voicecoils.

Sealed enclosures dont like much power because the coil cannot breathe and heats up rather quickly.

Its up to you, and your listening type.
Just remember LOUD = PORTED
QUALITY = SEALED

Bandpass is kind of a mixture of the two, however you give up some of the frequency range the sub plays at - and I dont ever recommend a bandpass enclosure to my customers unless they are looking to be flashy and light up the cones or magnet assemblies.

There are advantages and disadvantages to every enclosure type.
Pick the one that best suits your taste, and be sure to fire it toward the rear of the vehicle for the best response and cabin gain.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

2 12" Hitron 600w subs in a BandPass box


Remember that driving a load with an underpowered amp will probably cause more problems than having a more powerful amp that is not running flat out. 200-300W amp would be ok, but I would suggest going for the biggest you can afford. If you crank up the volume on the smaller amp you will probably get a fair amount of distortion, which may actually damage the speakers. A larger amp will not give as much distortion for the same loudness/volume and give better control of the speakers for a tighter bass..
