    I guess I wasn't specefic enough in my original question. I'm going to build a custom box for the speakers but I do not have the manufacturer's information on them. I'm in need of the reccomended sealed and ported box volumes (also port size if possible).

If you can access the inside of the sub box by removing the speaker, you may be able to measure the 3 dimension of each side of the enclosure.  1 cubic foot is 12x12x12 inches cubed.  That is 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot.  If you measure the inside dimensions of one of the enclosure sides as 10x14x8 inches, then that is 1120.  1120 divided by 1728 is 0.648 cubic feet.  Alternatively, you could estimate the volumes of each side of the box by measure the outside, figuring out where the box divider board is, subtracting the width of the boards used to make and then calculate.  Otherwise, I do not know the enclosure that that sub comes in.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

What is the cubic feet needed to build box for audioban 12


You can use this speaker in either a ported or sealed box. A sealed box would be smaller, (sealed box volume: 0.5 to 1.25 cubic feet) the larger the box the more base you will get. With a sealed box your amp has to work double hard as it would in a ported box ( 1.3 to 3.2 cubic feet) You will get close to double the volume in a ported box. Tuning a ported box with the size and length of the port will determine the hertz the speaker will play at.

What is the best box for a rfp 3812 sub


Hello hondacd_750,

The RFP3812 is an older model of sub. It has an 8 ohm voice coil and according to the original specs, is rated to handle from 50-200 watts RMS.

The recommended sealed enclosure needs 1.25 CuFt of internal volume. Ported should have 2.0 CuFt.

The full specifications are here.

Hope this helps.

What type of enclosure for audio bahn aw1000x


I used to be an Audiobahn dealer and can help you with the box. However I can't find specs on that model in my records or on Audiobahn's website. If you email me (dynami28@charter.net) the Theile Small parameters for the subs I can give you more exact specs. The box should be ported (Audiobahn doesn't recomend a sealded box) with about 2.5 cubic feet, made of 3/4" MDF. Here are some generic specs that should go well with that particular sub.

Air Space (Cu. Ft.) 2.4

Port Size (Inches) 4 x 6.25

Tune Freq. (Hz) 39

Size of boxes


Wow you are in luck, I used to be an Audiobahn dealer. Designing sub enclosures is my fulltime job. So here you go.-
If you are looking for sound that is very smooth, and has a very low end shaking everything setting off car alarms. You will need a PORTED BOX that is 3 CUBIC FEET FOR EACH SUB WOOFER. It actually calls for 2.7cu.ft but after you add speaker displacement and bracing it should be at least 3 cu.ft. The port can be either round or square made of plastic or 3/4" wood respectively. My port suggestions are dependent on how much space you have. The shortest round port might make some noise (too much pressure!). So think about that first. Anyway the short port is 3" diameter and 15.5" long. The longer port is 4" in diameter and 28.25" long. The rectangular wood port can also be either (port measurements are inside diamensions) 3" w x 3" w x 18.5" long (short port) or 2 w x 10.5 h x 48' long. The second longer wood port is recommended most but will take up a lot of space. The fact that you have to subtract the port volume from the box makes for space issues in cars. Also the second wood port sounds better and won't make much wind noise, but takes up .75 cu.ft worth of space. So in plain english your box will have to have an internal volume of 3.75cu.ft. An example of this could be made of 3/4" thick MDF, have 1" x 1" internal bracing and measure (box dimensions are external and assumes the use of 3/4" MDF) 12" h x 18" w x 30" deep. The port is an integral part of the box fitting inside. I'm sorry I can't provide any drawings to make things easier. Now this box size is one that I ran through a computer program I use. So it is not the same as the manufactures recommendations. I will list those as well.
The second box is an example using a round short port and also uses 3/4" MDF, 1 x 1" bracing, the 3" dia x 15.5" long port, and measures 12" x 18" x 24" externally.
If space is an issue try checking out the information below. -I got it from Audiobahn-
If for some reason it doesn't show up or you need assistance let me know. Good luck and enjoy your new setup-I'm sure you'll be happily disturbing the peace soon!

Put this in google -- ported box software

Now, you will need multiple specs for your subwoofers to figure out the correct box size and port diameters/length.

Also, other calculations like the resonant frequency of the vehicle you are putting these in and numerous other issues. Seriously, fixya.com is the wrong place to get this answered. Teams spends tens of thousands of dollars and years perfecting their vehicles to compete. Go to a good audio forum and ask this question there. You will receive ALOT better help and you can interact with some very knowledgeable people about your competition wishes. Good luck and have patience!!

    What is the proper box for 12 inch alumi subs


    It all depends on the manufacturer's specs. For instance memphis makes a bunch of different 12" subs and each needs a different box. Also It depends on what kind of sound you want. If you want precise bass I would go with a sealed box. If you want loud then I would go with a ported box. Then the port depends on what the manufacturer recommends. what I would do is find their website or just a tech support phone number and get specs from them. If there is one place that can tell you a good box, it is the maker of the subwoofer. If you need help from there just let me know and I would be happy to help.
