Question about Lanzar (Pair) MAXP104D Max Pro Series 1200W 10" Subwoofers Car Speaker
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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.)
