Hi I have 2 12 inch subs in a professionally built box, they really kick out the bass. However last year my friend had them in the garage and a mouse chewed a small hole in the surround mensch!! I assume this will affect the sub as there is a hole to let air escape rather that going out of the tuned port, I have looked for surround repair but all I have found is cheap foam not mensch.
If the holes not very big then it wont efect it (the size of a pinki nail)but if its a little bigger then use some real good silicone. put a piece of real thin paper on the back side of the whole and put a thin layer over the paper then get as much of the paper off as u can

It's been my experience,that intense and low bass comes with a price,always remember u get what u pay for,so on that note,Try to get Rockford Fosgate Competition subs with a punch 250 or 500 trust me that it is a powerful combination.and if u can afford it get a choke to put on ur subs so they will only kick bass put tweeters in the dash and mid range speakers in the door u could use a dual rca jacks to install 2 amps at once and get a punch 45 amp for the tweeters and mids.hope this was helpful
Hi there, If can you give me an average dimension of your trunk your installing it in. And Ported - Sealed is really based on what you are trying to achieve in the vehicle. Ported in my opinion sounds better in cars with an enclosed trunk where as a sealed subwoofer plays better in a hatchback vehicle where the car itself acts as a second box.
Just get a 12" sub box enclosure for an audio store near you or make a custom box, a larger box supposedly gives you more bass yet at the cost of boot space. I have a type R sub and the box is only as big as it needs to be for the sub to fit and it gives amazing bass.
do you want the box ported or unported (holes or no holes) if you don't got a lot of room than you dont want a ported box. keep in mind the box has to have the correct amount of cubic air space or you could seize your sub... if you're building it make sure you use OSB board (oriented strand board) or MDF board(medium density fiber) your sub needs .7cubic feet of air space in an unported box
are you gong to use this in your house or car?? any type of enclosed box air tight.. will do if your useing it in your house a box you can face the cone faceing down would be good with a port in the front about 3in would be good. be sure to purchase a cover for the speaker you dont want the cone smashed .you dont want any air leaks .. you can go to any car stero shop and have a box built.if you have good wood working skills build it your self 1/2 in partical board works ..you can also get the port tube at like a raido shack.and speaker port for conections weather it be rca or speaker wire type do not nail your box wood glue is best
